Who do you think is gone. Who do you think is most important.
What will the CBA have on FA in 2010?

If Bushrod keeps it up, Brown will be gone. Sharper should get an extension before the end of the year.

I think a lot of those players won't get as much attention from other teams as they deserve because it's hard for individual players to stand out on this team--which is a good thing for us.

Evans, Bushrod, Thomas, Fujita, Moore, Sharper and possibly Clancy will be resigned. The Jury is still out with Bell as we have young RBs waiting in the wings. Harper will likely be resigned as well or be raided. Brown may not be resigned due to big payday potential.

Evans, Thomas, Bushrod and Bell will be resigned. Harper and Sharper will be resigned unless someone throws an insane contract at them and/or for some reason they just want to play elsewhere. Moore should be resigned but with all the depth at WR and he too possibly being offered top dollar elsewhere, he may move on. Fujita and Clancy are solid players but I can see them being gone unless they take vet minimum or non-guaranteed offers. Brown is gone. With his injury concerns and contract being up, unless Bushrod crumbles, there's just not a need for him.

The Moore move is the one I am most concerned about. When they signed Henderson this year and dragged their feet on Moore I was concerned. Here we go again for next year. Moore is the best set of hands we have. He's not the biggest but he's the best. The best separator, best route runner, has the best glue, and the most elusive after the catch. I hope they help themselves, Drew, and me, and lock him down before the season ends.

Uh, Marques Colston?

Agreed that Lance Moore is AWESOME, but this is a pretty bold statement ... Not sure if I agree with it. Moore will be back though --- I think Henderson gets moved though ... If Meachem keeps it up there is just no room for him with Colston, Moore and Meachem.

Re: Free Agents Next Year...

brown, sharper, harper, evans, and bushrod

everyone else is replaceable....the most important part of our offense is not drew brees, its the offensive line.....we need to keep that in tact and focus on re-signing our defensive MVP and his co-captain in the secondary

I say it because I've seen the other guys' drops, including Colston. I've also seen him get separated after a so called catch...because he sometimes reverts back to the old bread-basket thing and arm cuddling of the ball. Colston is great on the move, especially in stride, but Moore is better 0-to -60 and making people miss. Moore gets open more and doesn't have to stop a 225lb frame to make an adjustment. I love the tandem and our full receiving core, but pound for pound, pure receiving skills, Moore is the better receiver.
