Re: 2019 Saints NFL Free Agency

Should Saints break the bank for SS Landon Collins, even if it meant losing some current stars down the road like Thomas, Rankins?!?

I don't think the Saints front office will. Continue to build a solid foundation on the D line inside the trenches with Rankins & 80 grams (David O).

Hindsight is 20/20, however looking back at that 2015 draft .... only wish we would have drafted Landon instead of Stephone Anthony. Collins was a legitimate 1st round talent that fell to the 2nd. SA was a 2/3rd round talent that we "reached" for in the 1st .

Pre Jeff Ireland, Saints were drafting for need instead of the best available talent.

I can't wait to see what moves are made in New Orleans when FA period officially commences.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Free Agency

And I hope we find a way to keep Mark Ingram.

Can the Saints potentially find a Plan B RB to replicate MI production? Possibly ...

However the desire to win, attitude & "great locker room" guys are difficult to find at this level.

He compliments Alvin K very well in this system.

To be continued ...

Just don't see the reunion tour in NO happening for DB.
Championship teams have to be four (4) deep at CB - this year clearly showed that with PJ in the slot...

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Free Agency

A rough offseason wishlist with a Fanspeak mock draft:

Re-Sign
RB Mark Ingram
DT Tyeler Davison
DE Alex Okafor
LB Craig Robertson
S Chris Banjo

Sign
TE Jesse James
WR Adam Humphries OR WR Golden Tate
WR/KR Jakeem Grant (Trade 6th round pick to Dolphins)
SS Tyrann Mathieu
DT Darius Philon
CB Delvin Breaux
***DT Gerald McCoy*** (If he becomes available as expected then he will be high-priority.)

R2P30 G MICHAEL DEITER WISCONSIN
R5P30 WR KEELAN DOSS UC DAVIS
R6P4 Traded to Miami for WR/KR Jakeem Grant
R6P29 RB WES HILLS SLIPPERY ROCK
R7P17 LB DRE GREENLAW ARKANSAS
R7P30 OT TREY PIPKINS SIOUX FALLS
