    Good signing, I'm glad we're focussed on keeping our core players.

    This will ensure continuity along the O-line. Also we have some good depth, Strief in case we need someone to fill in.

      I agree. It's a good signing for us.

        I know some Saints fans are big fans of offensive tackle Zach Strief, but I don't think he's ready just yet.

        However, with the way his deal is set up, it works out for both sides, in my opinion. Stinchcomb gets a two year deal, makes his money, and then he becomes a free agent at the age of 29, with six years of experience, and hopefully by then, either Strief can step up and become the starter or we would have drafted a tackle to come in and take over.

          As I said earlier, I don't know if I'm totally sold on Brian Simmons, since he has some injury concerns (but doesn't everyone) and he's not exactly a Spring chicken.

          But as for Ken Hamlin, I think he'd definitely be an upgrade and we could use someone like him in our secondary. He's a cornerback/safety and a hard hitter, which something that we don't particularly have. I know that he himself has also had injury concerns but I think he's fully recovered.

          We'll have to see, now with linebacker London Baker-Fletcher signing with Washington, our target list just got smaller.

          Who else would you like to see us target in free agency?

            I wonder why we're bringing in a FS. Are we giving up on Bullocks?

              I like the re-signing of Stinch. I think him and Strief are going to compete over the starting job in camp and if no matter who wins, it means we will have good depth.

                I'm not big on Simmons. Declining numbers with increasing age. Only 38 tackles and zero sacks last year. I'd pass on him.

                  With Hamlin, Grant, and Kaesviharn coming in for visits. I think that means the coaching is staff is either.. just about done with Bullocks, or Harper's knee isn't progressing as well as hoped.

                    Ken Hamlin is a strong safety, so possibly (and I hope not), Roman Harper may not be completely healed up from his injury last season.

                      Hamlin is listed as a FS. It is possible that he could play both positions. Plus he's only 26.

                          Saints Free Agency Thread

                          First outside FA signing according to NFL Network Adam Schefter reported that the Saints and Bengals LB Brian Simmons are expected to agree to terms on Monday, March 5th.

                          waiting to find out what comes of this, maybe we'll add Hamlin, Kaesviharn, or Grant as well.

                            I think that'd be a very nice signing as it would provide an upgrade at MLB over Mark Simoneau. I still think it is possible that we might go after Donnie Edwards as well since Brian Simmons can play OLB.

                              I would love to see us upgrading the positions at need in FA so that we can go after the BPA in the Draft :)

                              Brian Simmons and Ken Hamlin would be good signings.

                                I like the idea of bring Hamlin in his age and experience is a plus, but don't like Simmons coming in. If you are going to bring in a MLB in his 30's you might as well bring in Edwards.
