        hopefully the ravens don't tag AD, so maybe he can come to the Saints althought I would rather have Clements if I were to choose between the two.

          I don't want to see the Saints shell out the money it would take for them to bring a player like Adalius Thomas to The Big Easy.

            If they have the cap room, then it's a worthy move.

              It's a smart move for us. He's essential to our defense and makes up half of one of the better d-line's in the league. Now, I'm hoping we get a long-term deal worked out fairly soon. At worst, if we do lose him... we'll get compensated for it.
              The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

              “We know that no matter the adversity, be it the lockout, be it the suspension or be it a hurricane, our men will pull together and defend the honor of this city. We’ve shown we’ve been able to do that.” - Jabari Greer

                As I said on the Saints thread... *sigh*

                Yet another Darren Howard situation... :roll:

                  Kearney will be the best UFA defensive end, and probably will wind up in either Denver or St.Louis

                    I think he has a really good chance to end up in Denver.

                        It still irritates me that no one knows how to spell either his name, or Brooking. Who is oft-referred to as "Brookings," and "Kearney" respectively. Yes, I do think Kerney ends up in Denver, to play under Bill Johnson. I won't cry about it, if we draft either Anderson or Carriker.

                          Saints | Tag Grant as franchise player
                          Wed, 21 Feb 2007 08:29:39 -0800

                          Mike Triplett, of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, reports the New Orleans Saints have designated DE Charles Grant as their franchise player, limiting his mobility in the open market next month. Grant, who was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this year, expressed frustration with the franchise designation. "It's not so much being disappointed (with staying in New Orleans)," said Grant, a first-round draft pick in 2002. "I've been here five years. I love Louisiana. I love the people here. You can't get better people than here in New Orleans. But other teams are interested in me. If you don't think I can play the game of football, you should treat me like a man and let me go." The franchise tag equates to a one-year $8.6 million tender and gives the club the right to match any offer he receives or receive two first-round draft choices from the new club as compensation.
