Roquan Smith wants out of Chicago. Should we?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/...-chicago-bears Can we afford him? If so, would you pull the trigger as GM? I've seen this guy and he is legit one of the top 5 LB's in the league right now!...

Iíd assume we canít afford him. However, if we traded for him and gave him big bucks when we have Ceedy Deuce here asking for a contract thatís going to definitely kick up some dust.

I wish but Roquan wants ridiculous money.

Pete is still on his rookie contract. If Demario was "hinting" at retirement ... maybe but based on the guys they have brought in, Saints are only looking at adding a depth piece.

The next guy in line to get paid would be Ceedy and possibly Davenport.

Take care of what you already have in house. If he was a tight end then l could see it happening. We need good depth at line backer but not someone who will command that much of our already limited cap.

This requires a simple yet brilliant formula that Payton worked out and we need to follow. First Vilma then Demario Davis; The first LB that gets tired of playing for the Jets we swoop in and trade for. Likely he will be available about week 5. Future star and possible HOF candidate guaranteed!!!

Yeah, love to have him on the team, but way too costly.
