I'm with Chris, we need to sign SS/NB Tyrann Mathieu after RB Mark Ingram, NT Tyeler Davison; move Coleman to natural position of FS behind Mr. Marcus, let Bell finish contract as reserve...

He really wants to be here. He loves the culture this team has created. I had my reservations about trying to sign him last year, but I think now the time is right. He showed durability this past season and that he was able to thrive without mentor Patrick Peterson keeping an eye on him.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Free Agency

Well, I'll say this about the potentially signing the Honey Badger, it'll take adding a couple of competitive-infectious-types to pick this team up off the mat after the officials ripped their heart out on that no-call...

This loss is as devastating to the team and as Marcus Williams' missed-tackle in the divisional playoff was to Mr. Marcus...

I think we're sticking with Griffin, Hill and Arnold.

Only 26 & can block, catch & has good speed. He's better than anyone we have currently at TE.

Leave no stone unturned during Free Agency period.

Good... now we don’t have to hear about bringing him back for the next month or two.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Free Agency

We don't really have to much of a choice in signing good FA's. we don't have enough picks to upgrade unless one falls out of grace before the draft. I hope we keep Davison but add another NT to the mix. I could see going after a dynamic lb. in FA ours haven't played bad by no means but add a true stud to that group and it's set. I still don't think we get enough pressure upfront, close but not great. I think if we take care of those 2 positions the backend looks much better. Apple will be even better next season.

Plus one. But, you can't underestimate the boost Jimmy would get playing with Brees under center. But I'd rather have a younger, healthier, available, Jesse James who can block like a mule as a Tight End...

If we geaux with four (4) tight ends next season, assuming we sign Jesse James or better (not sure there is), this position could be a wrecking force against opposing defenses...

And also allow us to bring in some young tackle and give him help with jumbo packages...

But the real upgrade will come from within the organization with Dan Arnold having a whole season under the belt, along with a few extra pounds...

Will we ever learn? Never let it come down to the officiating...
