Wow, solid signing for the Saints.

Good Sign for the Saints

good solid signing by the saints

superb signing that gives them a guy who can still play at a high level, be a plus leader, and upgrades the LB area that clearly needed some improvement. It's made even better by the fact that it is only 3 years.

What are the contract numbers?

For now, undisclosed. It's a pretty solid signing in my opinion -- now, I'm hoping we can land Donnie Edwards, Rod Hood, Ken Hamlin, Anthony Adams, and Randy McMichael/Eric Johnson and I'd consider FA a success heading into the draft.

He's a leader, but he's average at best on the field.

I guess this takes Donnie Edwards out of the picture huh? :D

I wouldn't be so sure about that..

Im glad we got Porter, Thomas ans Simmons out of the division.

Honestly any moves the Saints can make to fix up their back seven is a good move. The overhaul of that defense is FAR from complete. Most of the players that Payton brought in his first year were serviceable, but no more.

TheChampIsHere 03-06-2007 12:39 PM

it is a solid pickup. Hes not a long term solution but its gonna take a while for Payton to get that defense shaped up and stocked with young talent. Bringing in guys like Simmons who can be solid starters as well as leaders and mentors should work well.

I like the signing. Now I'm hoping McMichael is next :)

GermanSaint 03-06-2007 06:04 PM

washed up and bad ... what a unspectacular siging , he is no starter material anymore ... poorly

themaninblack 03-06-2007 06:06 PM

he's still a capable starter in the NFL and will make some plays.

tjsunstein 03-06-2007 06:44 PM

good one for the marching men aka saints.

#1chiefs_fan 03-06-2007 08:01 PM

good pick up

RaiderNation 03-06-2007 08:15 PM

good pick up for the saints but they LB core will still need to be adressed in the draft
