Re: 2019 Saints NFL Free Agency

I'm more worried about a blocking TE than a pass-catching TE...

Josh Hill just has to get back into Payton's good graces with ball security; Hill has shown above average athleticism at the position...

Dan Arnold has the frame, hands to be a terrific Tight End; he's just got to put on a lot more weight, continue learning the position, NFL...

Griffin is more of a big pass catching H-back who can also handle deep snap duties (a plus)...

Jesse James would've been a perfect fit and I don't see why he wasn't a priority to sign; he'll flourish in DET now that he got away from that Drama Circus in PIT...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

And judging by a post I saw on Jared Cookís Instagram, heís back at home and left NO without a deal.

I guess weíre going to look toward the draft for another weapon or two.

Not that Payton seriously considered signing the "Human Bruise (T. Eifert), glad he nor Cook and his people asking crazy money are not optional - our Tight Ends are better receivers than they get credit...

Biggest problem (briefly it was DT after the Big O's mail-order), has been O-line. Now that Max made it public he's retiring, Saints Folk are woke to how serious our offensive line problems really are...

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Free Agency

Ravens taketh away, and now it's time to taketh back!!!

Payton/Mickster need to mount a very serious effort and let RFA C/G Matt Skura hold some coin...

He's a durable (available), hard-working Offensive Lineman who just earned the highest performance-based CBA bonuses...

With Unger's money now available, I'd sign him at a league Top 5 average through till he's 30yo, five years, and put the Ravens in a difficult spot to retain the RFA...

I wasn't really impressed by Easton with the Vikes, but I guess he'd be a slight upgrade over Clapp and Tom talent-wise and more experienced for sure.

Jared is probably taking his time, getting advice from his agent (watching the TE market) talking to family/friends etc. I know there are reports that NE is "interested" however they recently (about a week ago) signed a TE. So if Gronk isn't retiring in 2019, can't see Cook going there to be a back up.

To be continued ...
