McKenzie-Saints agree to new 5 year deal.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/3840134 Hopefully, LeCharles Bentley will be next. One thing you can't say is that Tom Benson is cheap. You can say he spends his money poorly, but at least he's spending it....

GREAT NEWS! Personally, I think Mike is a key player for us, and I'm glad to see the Saints stay true to their words. It's good PR.

You are right. It is good PR. But I think it also sends a message to both the current players and possible future players that the if you report, the Saints will show you the money. It also has to be one of the best spent second round picks in Saints history.

Good job front office. One side solidified for the next 5 years... less worries. Things are looking up and I agree it will possibly attract more high profiled athletes down the road.

I'm curious as to how the new deal affects his cap #. I would think that it may be less this year due to addition of three years to his contract. Yet another advantage to the deal. And it may be enough to get Bentley his new deal.

Wow! This is a huge turnaround for the FO. Maybe LeCharles and Darren Howard? Me Likey!
If only they would have kept LaRoi......

Unreal.

The FO sure seems to be doing everything right the last few months. Frankly, I'm a little shocked and don't know how to process all this good news. LOL

Signing McKenzie was another huge step forward (who'da thunk it with Howard still under the franchise tag, Whodi).

Why do I have this strange feeling like everything is falling into place? Scary.

Even you can't pull me in Who. Too much good news. Maybe I should predict who gets a deal next and how much it will be for.
