Thumbs up Saints solidfy offensive line with Grubbs

Grubbs is not as physically imposing as Nicks. He's about two inches shorter and 30 or so pounds lighter. That makes a difference. However, some evaluators believe the drop-off between Nicks and Grubbs will be hardly noticeable.

Saints fans can rest comfortably knowing that their worst fears have not been realized ó their explosive offense has not been gutted in free agency.

This is becoming a revolving door much like NCAA football.

Get a guy up to speed then send him on! But that's what sells NFL apparel and eliminates the boring dynasty. Even a team like the Lions and Bills have a chance!

Who will be the BREAKOUT team this year? Raiders? Cleveland?
