For a blocking TE? But then again, the Ravens do run the ball a lot.

But still JP ... 6M for Nick? Wow. Good for him though.

But yea, your're 100% on this blowing up the market for TE free agents.

Maybe I didn't word it as clearly as I should have, so allow me to make another run; first, I believe we already have three receiving tight ends that can get it done, with essentially two first year guys returning...

What James adds is ability to both catch & block; if we're gonna spend valuable, limited cap space on TE, which I think is already solid, at least we're adding an elite blocker coming from strong running PIT offense...

Emotions aside, I really, really hope the Saints front office brass can find a way to keep Mark in New Orleans.

Yes, Virginia, Sean Payton and Mickey Loomis were actually trying to trade for the mercurial, malcontent Antonio Brown...

Other than sending a fifth rounder for Jordan Howard, I really don't care for any of the FA RBs this year aside from Ingram - and we have very few darts for the draft board to replace Ingram...

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Free Agency

How about Chargers WR Tyrell Williams?

Not a big name but he was very productive with the Bolts.

Ah yes, the 2014 draft where big CBís were all the rage because of the Seahawks. Lots of hype that Pierre Desir, Keith McGill and Stanley Jean-Baptiste could be the next Richard Sherman. We played that all wrong. Then again, that whole draft was an abomination.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Free Agency


No way!

This can’t be true. That’s cold-blooded Pittsburgh.

Edit: Now there’s conflicting reports. Looks like Ian Crap-report may have struck again with false info.
