Wow, I guess they must feel real good about Colston and Hendersen. Its sad to see Horn get cut though. He was a fan favorite, and was the "leader" if you will of NO.

Maybe they'll try to resign him for cheap?

that's what they said on the radio that they plan to resign him for a lower price but they are taking a risk by letting him hit the open market.

Maybe Atlanta can sign him or Eric Moulds as a mentor type towards our talented, but inconsistent, receivers..

BTW - I have always respected Joe Horn.

Moulds isn't a team guy. He wouldn't be a great teacher. I can see Horn doing that.

It wouldn't suprise me to see him re-sign. I think that was their plan all along was to cut him then re-sign him. If some other team re-signs him then the Saints don't miss much.

If we don't manage to get him back which I'm not so sure will happen we have got to sign another WR in FA or draft one.

with the weak free agent class i think he will be able to find a job elsewhere at a higher rate than the saints would be willing to pay.

I agree. Especially with the type of money he's going to want to have.

Saints are set already at WR and can now spend that money on getting a CB like Clements.

I wouldn't have a problem with that. Hopefully he can stay healthy, though...

Set may be a bit of an overstatement. We have Colston, yes, but he has to prove that his rookie season was not just a fluke (think Michael Clayton). Devery Henderson became a huge threat for us last year, but still inconsistent at times. Then, Terrance Cooper whom isn't too bad. If, say, a Dwayne Jarrett is there at #27 it wouldn't shock me to see us pick someone of his caliber.

That's all very true and I agree. What I meant by set wasn't "yay! we're set, we're gonna roll", but more of "we're pretty much set up right now with a full compliment of able receivers".

I'd be surprised if you didn't take him.

My quetion is how are all these available veteran WR's going to effect the draft?

Maybe drops some stock to certain WR.

it doesn't surprise me with horn being cut with his salary and his lacking production of what he used to be im sure the saints will take him back with a pay cut though

The thing is I highly doubt Horn is willing to take a pay cut. That's the reason he was released in the first place.

Not a move I expected. They must think their young guys have it covered.

He'd be good in San Fran.

Very surprised to see the saints release the man who was the Face of this Franchise for a long time. . . But i must say he would look great in the purple & gold

my money would go on Green Bay signing him. McCarthy was horn's OC in from 2000-2004 and when he left for San Fran and then the HC job in GB Horn spoke very highly of him and really respects him. he also put up his best numbers when mccarthy was his OC so it seems like a perfect fit.

Maybe Atlanta can sign him. Not only would he be a good WR, but as a mentor type towards our talented, but inconsistent, receivers..

Falcons, former Saints WR Horn talking contract
Joe Horn - WR - NO - Mar. 2 - 2:32 p.m. ET

Free agent Joe Horn's player representative is already in discussions with the Atlanta Falcons about a contract for his client.
The first step the sides are taking is setting up a meeting for Horn and new Falcons head coach Bobby Petrino. Horn is exactly what the Falcons need in their receiving corps; someone to tutor Roddy White and Michael Jenkins and bring leadership...and hands. Mar. 2 - 2:32 p.m. ET

Vitolo said Horn, 35, and Vick have been friends for years and that relationship could factor into Horn's possible union with his longtime NFC South rival.

Jacksonville, Miami, Cleveland and Green Bay were some of the other teams to have reached out to Horn, but Atlanta is at the top of Horn's list, Vitolo said.

"Things have been very positive," Vitolo said of talks with the Falcons.'

BAM!

He would be great to have here. I'd still like a true #1 but Joe Horn is a step in the right direction.

Marques Colston credits Joe Horn for taking him under his wing, being a mentor. Exactly what we need. Reliable hands are just icing on the cake..

As someone who called Horn to the Falcons in the middle of the 06 seaosn, I'll have to say "no." Heh.

Donte Stallworth has said the same, Horn has become an excellent tutor and veteran since his days of third-person speech.

He's a washed up veteran who has had worse and worse injuries the past few years. I don't think he has anymore productive years left in him, and with Vick throwing to him he won't get 500 yards.

He also failed his physical with us...
