Re: 2019 Saints NFL Free Agency

You know what really sucks about this list?

We had one on our roster and let him go? Will we ever get the real story???

Another, Pay/Mis failed to make a move on another when we clearly had need and he was affordable...

How much was it on the coaching (Hicks) staff though ?

IIRC, Akiem wanted to be a 5 tech when Jordan had that locked down. Then he became lazy, took plays off etc. He "flashed" every 15 plays. Essentially it took 3 different teams before Akiem put it all together.

Too bad Coach Nielsen never had the opportunity to coach him up in New Orleans.

I thought we already Did. I remember him swinging a belt on the beach after he had developed hard feelings among the players and coaches. He ran himself out of town and was a reclamation project when he left here. Too bad he couldn't get his **** together here.

My understanding was we were going to a 3-4 (remember Hau'oli Kikaha?) and he was a poor fit...

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Free Agency

We need another force on the interior D line. All starts in the middle....3 of those four players were legit playoff defenses.

I go Dat before I go safety

Speaking of the Oakland Raiders, I do like Jonathan Hankins at DT. Good player on a terrible team. Darius Philon is another guy who is emerging & is only 25.
We have Anzelone. I think heís every bit as good as Clay (although used differently). Shane Ray is over his head. NFL physicality seems too much for him.
