Longshot didn't come thru.
Where are they getting the money to keep Colston, acquire Grubbs, and resign Brees?
Saints are just a very solid org. Lose Nicks, get Grubbs cheaper.
As long as there is no Bounty,all is well:laugh2:
We didn't even bring him in. Instead we're sniffing around all these rejects once again, going cheap on the oline. It's gonna bite us in that ***, of that I have no doubt. Especially if we pass on DeCastro, because I have absolutely zero faith in our ability to draft linemen past the 1st round.
If the lineman isn't an obvious talent, we have almost no ability to evaluate them.
I called this one yesterday. No way they were going to lose Nicks and not replace him with someone who could keep Brees' jersey clean.
Honestly, I'd rather have Myers or Wells at C at this point than another G.
That one got a chuckle out of me. :laugh2:
He signed for 36 million for five years with 10 million signing bonus and 16 million guaranteed according to ESPN. That is not bad.
I'm thinking, possibly, that the idea might be to upgrade at Center and then draft DeCastro or Glenn in the first round?
Then you've more than addressed the O-line as well as upgraded the secondary, added depth to the O-line, and if we get Connor added some depth into the ILB position as well.
I think we should wait and see how all of FA plays out, and where it leaves us going into the draft, before we'll have a real good idea of what the plans are for the first round.
Grubbs is nowhere near as good as Nicks; Brees will find that out the hard way
$7 mil a year?!? It's WAY more than I want to pay for a Guard when you have other interior O-line problems. I'd rather get a better than average guy at G and then get one of the better FA centers. You could do both with this kind of money.
Your right. I was talking about him getting that money. Sorry about that. I was typing while at was work and was multi-tasking at the same time.
Nice replacement for Carl Nicks
probably not, Drew Brees has one of the quickest releases of anyone in the NFL
Grubbs isn't that far off from Nicks, and he was cheaper. At least they went out and got a replacement, they could have just closed their eyes and pretended one of their backups could replace an All Pro.
It shows they take protecting their QB seriously... and that they've got money to blow.
