Just something to keep an eye on. Don’t shoot the messenger.
I hope not. Really would prefer signing the 26yo Honey Badger. Reason is two-fold - don't won't the Mathieu reuniting with Bruce Arians in Tampa Bay...

Same "speculation" up this way in Deathstar Nation over the last week or so. Earl enrolled his kids down in Austin, wants to be closer to home yada, yada.

Who knows.

All I know is that Earl Thomas is still ELITE at the Free Safety position. He knows how to track the football, takes away the deep pass & intercepts passes on a regular basis. Rare ability.

Can't argue with his production. I wouldn't be mad if they Saints brass are targeting him Free Agency.

I'm more concerned about the DT position this off season though.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Free Agency

If there’s one thing Payton and Loomis love it’s the splashy FA signing. Everybody assumes Earl Thomas to Dallas is a foregone conclusion so swooping in and stealing the headline would turn them on so much lol. It’s totally the type of move we’d make. I agree with you though JP, Honey Badger would make way more sense.

Free agency will be fun next month.

I have a hard time arguing with just about any roster move the Saints have made over the last 3 years.

Ah man. The articles says he’ll play the 5-technique in their 3-4 and play inside in four-man fronts. Very, very unfortunate.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Free Agency

The Earl Thomas signing with the Saints is a head-scratcher because Mr. Marcus had an outstanding rookie season, average sophmore year - why spend with limited cap space and other needs on the table?


This smells more like an agent, on the Saints To Do Business With...List asked the Mickster "Mickey, could we leak that we're discussing Earl T. with you as a favor?

The same "speculation" that brought Jimmy G and Malcolm Butler to the Saints.
