No disrespect to Marcus Williams, but if we can get good value for him in a trade after this season and just plug in Saquon Hampton... That would be fantastic.
That's why it's so very important to cease the two picks for one regular practice and build through the draft as most perennially successful teams do...

Use Free Agency to round out rosters, not to build them...

And Chris, I don't know that we even need to trade Mr. Marcus, if we can't fit his veteran salary slot under the cap with Kamara, Lattimore, Ramczyk -

Let his contract expire, get the compensatory pick which is gonna be no less than a fourth when Marcus signs his veteran contract (base on his current valuation in the league)...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

And this is what a sixth (6th) round pick can do for you...

Williams played safe last year probably by the coaches design. Other than a blown no call by the refs, the Saints would have been in the Super Bowl. While he didn't specifically stand out in a good way, he didn't in a bad way either. Hampton may be a natural play maker and/or is just letting it all hang out. It's way too early to tell. But, the draft class and UDFA's are looking good so far.

Nope. D.A. and Payton admitted in the off-season debriefs that they'd actually expanded Mr. Marcus' responsibilities, role to their mistake...

Expecting a return to form of his rookie season especially as Eli Apple and either P.J. or P-Rob better hold down their responsibilities...

Some guys can handle more work, some can't. Same in the business world.

Remember folks......we need depth and don't want to trade away the best free safety we've had in a while. However if we keep drafting talent then maybe we trade him. I like him but we literally can't pay everybody.

Is this a great interception or a poorly under thrown ball? If that ball from what I can see in the videos posted if that is place 5-7 yards further downfield Hampton is out of place and that's a TD.

Granted, I'm only seeing a few slices of places since camp started. But I have seen that play executed better where it ends up with Cook beating all the DB/S and walking into the endzone.

I only wish I could see more footage of how the rest are playing. Concur on the M Williams deal as this could be a fish or cut bait year for him.
