RE: Corey Simon still unsigned

What would be the harm in just trading Howard for Simon and maybe a 2nd or 3rd next year? We need him and they need Howard, why has'nt this happened yet?

I think every Saints fan in the world would like to know why that hasn't happened yet Cher. Maybe they are just hanging on to Sully and hoping and praying he is going to play this year.

Would be nice to have Simon.

Not every Saints fan J. you would be surprised at the number of guys who poo-pooed that very idea, as much sense as it makes. They would rather have a glut of good DEs than have a pro bowl DT and 2 very good DEs. Go figure.

I like the idea of having Simon. I think he would be a great addition and we need a run stuffer. I would like to retain Howard and sign Simon, but I don't see that happening. Simon for Howard is not a bad trade in my book. We need Simon and can use Howard, and they need Howard and can use Simon. Swap em out. I would hate to see Howard go, but the defense needs help and the DE spot is covered.

Sure it's nice to have 3 good DEs on your team, but only two of them can be on the field at the same time. If we could trade Howard for Simon, and drastically improve our DT dilemma, then it would be a great deal for us. I'm all for trying to get Simon. Howard's good, but we have two up and coming stars at DE, and desperately need help at DT.

I agree Deuce.

Simon would be a huge upgrade over anybody we currently have. We should try to do a staight up trade Howard for Simon. Kepping Howard would be great for the depth, but it is the contract part of it I don't like.

Not true. Howard lines up as a tackle on obvious passing plays, so there are times when all three of our star ends are on the field together.

Regardless, I'd love to see a trade for Simon happen. I think we need it pretty desperately. I think the fact that he still hasn't signed his tender offer is a good one for the Saints. If Corey continues to play hardball, that increases the chances we'll get a worthwhile trade out of it.

And Howard voiced in an article right after the season ended when he thought his time here was done how much he disliked lining up at DT.
