Harris Jr is a seasoned vet with skins on the wall however we already have Janoris in house & has played 2 games for NO. I'd rather see if we can somehow re do his deal and retain his services for 2020.

This would have multiple ramifications...

Wouldn't mind adding Campbell from the Clowns to the lb'ers core. Would be a great addition.

Ok now check this out...


If this is true there’s no reason why we can’t go buck wild in free agency this year and back-load contracts.

This is exactly what I have been preaching about over the past several months. The cap is going to SKYROCKET under the new CBA with the combination of the increased player percentages and the addition of all of the new revenue sources. All of this talk about salary limitations is totally uninformed.

I stated a couple of weeks ago that the cap will reach the area of $300 million by 2025 and I am even more sure that will happen ... and beyond.

Do not worry about what we pay anyone and let Loomis keep "kicking the can".

Agreed. Different discussion if Harris is three years younger, then again, we're not affording him three years ago either; not with Lattimore set for a big contract day...

If Vonn Bell leaves and CJGJ replaces him at SS, weíll need a nickel CB. Iíd extend Janoris AND sign Chris Harris Jr to man the nickel spot.

Chris, don't see how we could afford that, and we still need to sign a LG and a WRF at the least...

Plus, at Harris' age of (31yo when season begins) that'd be a big gamble and doubt he'd have the stamina to give us 16 games the whole game...

And don't forget, Janoris turns 32yo in October...

Personally, thatís why I really want to keep Vonn Bell. That allows us to keep CJGJ at nickel and our secondary is all set. It all hinges on Bell though.

Yeah, but we've already been in deficit spending mode to cover Brees the last eight years, and we've got Lattimore, Ramczyk that are going to be two huyuge cap spikes...

That's not addressing Mr. Marcus, nor Taysom who may get assessed with a first round pick value...
