  • Saints need to get that secondary fixed fast. I still think we should have gone after D.Hall

For those who are better familiar with contract lengths, are there any good left tackles hitting free agency, I'd really like to move brown to the right and have a good LT. (I know the odds are slim)
      Jordan Gross, LT, Carolina Panthers will be a FA this year.

      Other notable OL are Stacy Andrews, Jordan Black, and Vernon Carey.

      • Isn't Gross more suited for the right side though?

        Did Jason Peters sign an extension or is he gonna be a FA too?

        Big time Thank You to BoneKrusher!

          He signed a 5 year extension in 2006.

          And no, Jordan Gross is definitely a LT.

          • Idk, thought I heard somewhere that he did better when he was on the right side. Either way, it's an improvement over Stinch.

            • And I honoustly think brown is a great RT but he isnt able to stop great quick athletic pass rushers good enough, he was in trouble against peppers an again against abraham and I probably missed a couple. He still is one of our better linemen but I'd rather see someone else do the blind side whilst he'd own at RT, besides that stinch isnt much good. Where can you find a overview of which players are becomning free agents btw?


              Saints 2014 draft wish list:
              - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
              - Corner or Wideout in the first
              - No reaching
              - No Kelvin Benjamin

              • I feel bad for the Saints with all their injuries, but come this year's draft I'm going to be wanting to kill them with their top 15 pick (for a team that has the talent to be picking in the 20s) it's really going to hurt me to see them be able to get the caliber of player they will be able to pick up in the first round. Injuries have really limited the Saints this year. Payton seems like he's only getting these guys ready every other week, and I figured with a bye week he'd have a had a much better gameplan coming into the game. Guess he couldn't do anything to overcome the injuries and the lack of talent on Defense.

                    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.''

                      • Saints place RB Aaron Stecker on IR, sign RB Mike Bell

                        The Saints placed tailback Aaron Stecker on injured reserve Tuesday after he aggravated his lingering hamsting injury in Sunday's 30-20 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. They replaced him with free agent tailback Mike Bell, a 6-foot, 225-pounder who spent the past two seasons with the Denver Broncos.

                        Stecker's injury was expected to need four to six weeks to heal, according to his agent Ronald Slavin. With only six weeks remaining in the season, the Saints needed the roster spot.

                        Bell, 25, had a breakout rookie season with the Broncos in 2006 after signing as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona. But he played only sparingly last year and did not catch on with a team this season after a brief cameo with the Houston Texans in training camp. His agent Steven Feldman confirmed the signing.

                        Bell (6 feet, 225 pounds) ran for 677 yards and eight touchdowns as a rookie and just three yards on six attempts last year. With his size, he could possibly be a candidate to line up at fullback, as well, while the Saints are playing without a healthy fullback on the roster.

                        Stecker, 33, is a free agent after this season after he signed a one-year deal to remain in New Orleans this past spring. The valuable utility man has been with the Saints for five years after spending his first four seasons in Tampa Bay.

                        Terrible signing as far as I'm concerned. Mike Bell succeeding for a while with a zone blacking system, a system we do not incorporate. The better to sign would have been Najeh Davenport, a back that can help grind it out between the tackles. Navenport was successful for a span in Pittsburgh but wore down due to the workload he was given. We have McAllister and Thomas to help spell Davenport, which would keep him fresher.

                        Now, we signed a back that wore down in Denver and couldn't succeed in a system that mass-produces productive RB's damn near every year.

                            I agree I dont like bell myself but I think P.Thomas can handle the load. Last time he started and got most of the reps during a game he got over 100 yards rushing and over 100 receiving. I know we just sighned like 2-3 other backs since McAllister could be out for 4 games due to the starcaps BS.

                            • Here is the report with the RB's names we sighned.


                              Deuce McAllister facing a four-game suspension, running back Aaron Stecker has been placed on injured reserve, a league source tells us.

                              The Saints, we’re told, filled the spot by inking running back Darian Barnes. Adam Caplan of Scout.com reports that they also have signed running back Mike Bell.

                              The Saints added another running back via the practice squad, inking Lavarus Giles.
