Peat got a little playing time in week 17, but the playoff start was his first against real opponents in 8 games. Meanwhile Easton started and our offense was on a roll, all of our best offensive performances came with Easton in the lineup. Somehow Payton thought it was a great idea to put Peat back in coming off injuries and sucking in general, to face one of the best D-lines in football....

Well we saw how that ended, Non-stop pressure in Brees and no holes to run through.
PRECISELY .

Damn, c'mon Coach Payton.

Now that would be awesome to see!

Re: 2020 NFL Free Agency: New Orleans Saints

I’d be ok with signing LB Jamie Collins. His age doesn’t concern me as he’s nine months younger than Demario Davis. Speaking of Demario Davis, he was teammates with Jamie Collins in 2016 in Cleveland. If Demario signs off then let’s do it.

Demario would be signing off with an inside scouting report on a player of three years ago - naturally Payton heavily weighs this, but it'd be a mistake as the reference is not current & overly personal...

IMO Jamie would be an upgrade at the position.

Brees84 has been beating the drum on him landing in NO for some time now.

Do we really want to "gamble" on yet another guy with knee/torn ACL issues? Isn't this #2 or 3 tear for Hunter?

Agholor aka hands of stone ... we already have one (Ginn Jr) on the team. Nelson has been hot and cold his entire career in Philly. Not a good pick for Tater "Chip" Kelly. I'd say hard pass on both of these guys even if they'd come cheap.

Brees needs legit toys to work with.

Thinking on these two; first, I'd like to see us look at the medicals for Henry and find out if he's injury prone or if there's something else because he's a tremendous athletic Tight End that could have a JG-impact...

Second, if Agholor could be had for $2-3Mil, he'd be an affordable upgrade to what we have now; the top WR guys are either real old or would take so much coin to sign, we'd be out on LG & LB...

Plus, it hides a hole come NFL Draft where we can get that true WRZ, No. 2 guy, then Nelson could be a mismatch advantage for the Saints in the slot...

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

How would he be an upgrade if he can't catch a damned ball?
