this is a guy i think the saints should look at at MLB, he is a probowl caliber player who played with a shoulder injury last year and still posted 102 tackles but a return to a healthy form would make him an excellent addition to a porus D with a huge hole at MLB, he was the single most important Player on the Lions D besides maybe robert porche, anyway, he is still young, and has increased his tackle total every year

1999 Totals:50 tackles 1.5 sacks 0 ints
2000 Totals:65 tackles 1.0 sacks 1 ints
2001 Totals:77 tackles 4.0 sacks 2 ints
2002 Totals:102 tackles 4.5 sacks 3 ints

here is a lil bio:

6'3" - 258 lbs
USC
4 Years Experience
DOB: 07/26/1978

After posting 102 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and 3 interceptions (including one for a touchdown), in 2002 Claiborne has proven that he can do it all from the middle linebacker position

pakowitz, I\'ve liked Claiborne also. What could he bring to a GOOD team? What would it cost us? What about Seau? LEADERSHIP. I just hope that it wouldn\'t be another Bryan Cox story.

If there is a trade involving KT and Tebucky, there should be more offered from the Pats like one of their many tight ends and a later draft pick.

Didn\'t Claiborne resign with the lions? If not, go get him! If they\'re really that high on Ruff, then go to the 3-4. That eliminates our need for a DT (Grady should be a damn good nose tackle).

Looks like the only Claiborne we have a shot at is Liz Claiborne

#1. iceshack149, either call me pak, or yoda
#2. i think that we still might look at him, i think we just fartin around like always right now, i dont see Y we wouldnt look into him, he is a very solid MLB, all those updates say they have interest in him, but no one has set a date, so there is always a chance of us settin a date too
#3. i doubt we trade turley for jones and one of there many TEs which includes cam cleeland who we had once before, i would take jones and a 3rd round pick for turley, but other then that, negative

Won\'t happen. Boston is less like the west coast than New Orleans. Turley won\'t go, and I doubt New England wants that kind of trouble maker. Turley really need to go to the Raiders. He\'s a perfect fit there. Someone call Al Davis. Turley and a third rounder for Woodson?
