Saints looking at Troy Brown
 
AP that the New Orleans Saints have expressed interest in free agency WR Troy Brown (Patriots) according to Mike Reiss of the Boston Herald. Apparently the ACL injury suffered by rookie WR Chase Lyman has opened a roster spot for a veteran wideout in the Big Easy.

I wonder what he's seeking for a contract?

I would hope somewhere between 1 million or 2 million... which is pretty fair IMO and affordable. If we did sign him, maybe Lyman's injury would be a blessing in disguise. Brown does have gas left in his tank.

i say sign him....he has sure hands and thats something we are missing right now.....besides that he can contribute in other areas like KR/PR & CB and we can definetly use that kind of help....

1 to 2 mil is not affordable for a team with only 1 mil in cap space. We need to restructure or trade Howard (or someone).

I like Brown. He'd be an excellent 3rd and capable 2nd WR!

But remember we were seriously considering signing Chad Brown JKool, so I think we had something planned for the extra cap space.

Good point, papz.

I wonder where it'll come from? What do you think?

Great another short receiver... Is Dante Hall up for free agency soon?

No clue lol... I would think it would have to come from Gandy's money somehow. Can't think of another way since Howard isn't going anywhere.

Gandy is a good call papz. I think we should get him to restructure. I doubt we'd get much more than 1 or 2 mil from his restructure. That doesn't get us much room for insurance if someone gets hurt.
