It is good to see the players we bring in have class, and composure.

Hopefully the team believes in one another and if what three relatively new commers have to say then team morale is very high, something which has been lacking for the past decade or so in a Saint's franchise.

Question What does everyone think about this...

OK, so the Detroit Lions are done with Mike Williams. They do not want him anymore. We're obvoiusly looking for another WR and what do yall think of trying to pick him up with a 3rd or 4th round pick??

I know he's had problems in Detroit. This could be due to the fact that he simply does not want to play there [honestly who would want to play for that team whose got a lot of problems right now]. I think he could be reinspired and pushed by Drew Brees, all of the other teamates around him and be excited to be playing under an offensive genious known as THE SEAN PAYTON. This has the potential to be a championship team and he could start a new career here.

Any opinions on trying to pursue this WR who was supposed to be huge coming out of college????

Hes overweight, not a hard worker, and he seemingly has character issues.

Hes immensely talented, but theres no way Payton will even think about this guy, let alone try to trade for him.

Agreed. Apparently he has problems with work ethic, motivation, and keeping his weight under control.

I don't think he would last a day going through Sean Payton's training camps.

If theres a Lion's receiver we should be interested in it may be Mike Furrey.

I don't know much about him, but he looked really good last year with Kitna throwing to him.

I like Furrey he's an underrated blue collar guy, but the Lions re-signed him this off-season to a 3 year deal.

Found the link: Lions agree with Furrey on a 3 year deal.

Ah, thats a good move for them.

If all else fails, Craig Davis in the second doesn't sound too bad to me. Sidney Rice scares me, mostly because hes a Spurrier receiver. I think Davis would be a nice pick if hes around.

The Saints have the big physical receiver in Colston, and the long play guy in Henderson.

The Saints just need a guy with exceptional/good hands and a good route runner. The Saints lack players with great hands, that was Joe Horn. Therefore I would say Smith, or Davis would be great picks.

If we want a great route-runner Gonzalez should be given a good look also.

I don't see what would be so bad about it. Low risk, high reward type of investment.

HELLLLLLLLLLLL NO!

Mike Williams is Jonathan Sullivan reincarnated as a wideout.

Edit - he's also nowhere near worthy of a 3rd or 4th rounder. You really need to learn the value of draft picks.

Not a chance. It would be an absouletly terrible move for us. The only remaining wide receiver left in free agency that I would happy with the Saints signing is Eric Moulds.

The latest Saints team report on Foxsports.

Quote:
Saints Team Report:

Inside Slant

In a move that will likely impact the way they approach the draft, the Saints took a step to filling one of their needs last week in signing restricted free agent cornerback Jason David to an offer sheet.



It was no secret that the Saints would be in the market for a cornerback during the off-season and David, who started the last three seasons for the Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts, certainly fills the bill.

Now, the only trick is to see if the Colts match the offer sheet and retain the services of David, a 5-foot-8, 180-pounder. If the Colts don't match the deal by Friday, the Saints would have to give up one of their three fourth-round draft picks -- the 126th overall selection.

David, 24, started 43 regular-season games for the Colts after being selected in the fourth round of the 2004 draft. The Washington State product has seen action in all 48 regular season games and started in the Colts' Super Bowl XLI win over the Chicago Bears in February.

David's regular-season stats include 147 tackles and eight interceptions for 65 yards and a long return of 34 yards with one touchdown. He has also recovered three fumbles.

The Saints went into the off-season looking to upgrade that position. Mike McKenzie had a solid season in 2006, but Fred Thomas, who started on the other side, gave up several big pass plays in the regular season and playoffs.

While many thought Thomas would be let go after the season, he took a pay cut to return. The Saints also have Jason Craft under contract, but he's mainly served as the nickel back during his stay in New Orleans.

The Colts have already lost its other starting cornerback, Nick Harper, during free agency. If the four-year contract the Saints offered to David is too pricey, they may lose another.

"He had some interest (on the market), but the Saints are a mirror-image football team of the Colts. They're both headed in the right direction," said agent Cary Mark Fabricant. "It's a great situation if he remains a Colt, and it's an even greater situation if he joins the Saints. Now we sit and wait."

DRAFT STRATEGY -- How the Saints look at the draft and how they plan to dive into it will depend on what happens in the days leading up to the two-day event.

The Saints took a step toward nailing down their top need in the off-season when they signed Indianapolis Colts cornerback Jason David to an offer sheet on April 19. The offer sheet includes a four-year contract for the restricted free agent, a 5-foot-8, 180-pounder.

The Colts, however, have a week to match the offer from the Saints and retain the services of David -- a window that takes them up to the eve of the draft. If they decline, they would receive one of the Saints' three picks in the fourth round -- the 126th overall selection.

The offer to David is huge for the Saints, especially if the Colts can't match. The Saints would get a quality cornerback who has made 43 career starts in 48 games, and also started in Super Bowl XLI to pair with veteran Mike McKenzie.

The Saints were in search of a cornerback after Fred Thomas gave up several big plays late in the season and in the playoffs. While Thomas took a pay cut to stay with the team, they wanted to upgrade the position.

If they get David, they could still take a young cornerback with the 27th pick in the first round. Or, they might want to use that selection to add more depth at wide receiver or linebacker.

No matter what, the Saints have an abundance of draft picks to further improve their squad. They have picks in the second and third rounds as well and three choices in the fourth round (unless the Colts decline to match the offer for David). They also have one pick in the fifth and seventh rounds.

They would be more than happy to have some options at the bottom of the first round to possibly add more depth at wide receiver, where Marques Colston and Devery Henderson figure to be the starters this fall.

Linebacker would be another place they might look even though they appear to be settled with Scott Shanle and Scott Fujita as their starters on the outside with Brian Simmons and Mark Simoneau battling it out in the middle.

Another area they might try to add some youth at is defensive line, where their top three players inside are getting up in years.

Team Report: Notes & Quotes

--The Saints continued to work on upgrading their defense last week with the signing of two veteran linebackers.

They signed former Louisiana State star Trev Faulk, who played with the St. Louis Rams from 2003-05, and Troy Evans, who spent five seasons with the Houston Texans. Both signed two-year deals with the Saints.

Faulk, a 6-foot-3, 254-pounder, played three seasons at LSU before declaring for the NFL draft after his junior season. He spent time on the Arizona Cardinals practice squad before being signed by the Rams. Faulk was released by the Rams last July when he failed his physical because of a back injury after playing in 29 games with seven starts.

Faulk will try to earn a roster spot with the Saints and add some depth at linebacker as will Evans, who has been primarily a special teams standout for the Texans.

--Saints owner Tom Benson and his wife, Gayle, recently announced plans to help the University of Incarnate Word in San Antonio launch an NCAA Division II football program.

The Bensons, who have a home in San Antonio, will help fund the building of a football stadium on the UIW campus. It will continue a relationship Tom Benson has had with the school for more than 25 years.

"We have an exciting year ahead in football, and to announce the beginning of this new program at the University of Incarnate Word is the start," said the Saints owner, who established the Tom Benson Chair of Banking and Finance at UIW in 1985.

"Education is one of the most important elements of a young person's life," he added. "Throughout my years here and in New Orleans, my family and I have been committed to the betterment and advancement in the field of education."

--The Saints organization received a special "JB Award" for community dedication during the annual NFL Players Association and Players Inc. banquet held April 12.

Linebacker Scott Fujita, running back Deuce McAllister and wide receiver/kick returner Michael Lewis were on hand to receive the award on behalf of the organization.

The Community Dedication Award is one of five special awards handed out by CBS sportscaster James Brown, who annually honors 10 NFL players for their commitment to achieve excellence off the field by building better communities and stronger families.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "Jason was a good piece for (the Saints), someone who was needed." -- Agent Cary Mark Fabricant on the Saints' signing restricted free agent cornerback Jason David.

I'm hoping the Colts don't match the offer.

Drew Brees article. He talks about rehabbing his elbow, his busy off-season schedule, and some of the new Saints acquisitions.

Quote:
METAIRIE, La. -- How's this for an offseason?

Drew Brees played in the Pro Bowl in Hawaii, rode in a Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans, went on vacations with his wife to Costa Rica and Europe, flew with the Blue Angels in southern California and visited troops in the Middle East.

Mixed in were visits to renowned sports medicine surgeon Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., because of an elbow injury during the pro bowl, subsequent rehabilitation sessions and even a few rounds of golf when he started to feel better.

Brees squeezed it all into a little more than two months, and on Tuesday was back in Saints workout gear at the team's training headquarters, getting in shape for minicamp in June, followed by training camp in late July at Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss.

Brees said he now expects to remain in New Orleans straight through until the Saints pack up for Jackson, and if any fans run into him around town, one thing he does not want them to do is hold doors open for him out of sympathy for his injured elbow.

"No, shoot, I need that work. That's extra rehab," Brees said.

In part because he throws with his right hand, Brees said his injured left elbow was in good enough shape two or three weeks ago for him to play football.

"It's where I want it to be right now," Brees said. "I'm able to do everything in the weight room and with our conditioning program. So I'm good."

Brees said he had no regrets about playing in the Pro Bowl and would be inclined to go back, despite the injury.

"It's a shame that happened, just because I think it did raise a lot of those questions" about whether players should skip it, Brees said. "Being chosen to the Pro Bowl is a tremendous honor. ... Playing in that game is a tremendous honor. As long as I'm invited to play in that game I'm going to play in it. I think that was just a freak deal, and why it happened? I don't know. ... I guess I understand when guys, if they get invited to the Pro Bowl, and they're in a contract year or their contract's being negotiated in February or March, I understand why a guy might not play. Because it might be an unnecessary risk. If something happens to them, they really would lose a lot."

Now in the second year of a six-year contract he signed with New Orleans, Brees counted his weeklong trip to meet with troops in Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates as one of the highlights of his time off, even though he was disappointed that an excursion to Baghdad was called off because of an escalation in violence while he was there a few weeks ago.

"I mean, hey, if you go all that way, it might be your only opportunity," Brees said. "I'm not trying to be stupid or anything. I understood that, hey, if it's not safe, it's not safe. But you know, you're that close. You kind of want to see it all, especially if you're as big a fan of the military as I am. ... You want to be as much a part of it as you can without actually taking the live rounds flying by your head."

Brees went with former Chargers teammate Donnie Edwards, who now plays for Kansas City. They had planned to go together when they were still with San Diego in 2005, but Brees' shoulder injury late that season delayed it.

"It was amazing to see these guys and obviously the amount of discipline it takes to do what they do and the amount of commitment," Brees said. "And it was pretty neat because there were a lot of Louisiana and Mississippi, Gulf Coast guys over there. A lot of Saints fans, which was nice. They were all excited obviously about the season and ... asking me about the draft and all that stuff. So that was cool. I'd do it again in a heartbeat."

Brees was awe-struck by his flight with the Blue Angels, but that experience also made it harder for him to learn the news of the flying team's accident that killed one of the pilots, Lt. Cmdr. Kevin J. Davis, last weekend. Brees had not flown with Davis, but had met him and the rest of the squadron.

"For something like that to happen, my heart goes out to him and the whole team and the family," Brees said. "You wonder how they go on after something like that. They're professionals, and obviously, when you're in the military, unfortunately, that stuff happens and you try to move on."

Now Brees is trying to get back to football and to build on the most successful Saints season in franchise history.

He will have to do it this year without receiver Joe Horn, who has signed with the South Division rival Atlanta Falcons, a move that might intensify the twice-a-season matchup even more.

"It's going to juice it up all right," Brees said. "It's always tough to lose a guy like that. Joe's been the face of this team, heart and soul, always the outspoken one. When I look back on my year with Joe, obviously last year being such a special year, but he was one of the main reasons why it was so special because he's a great teammate. He just brings so much fire and passion to the game, into the locker room and everything else. You can't replace a guy like that. ... This is just part of the business. I think we all understand that. Joe's getting a great opportunity to go to Atlanta and I'm happy for him."

Brees said overall he was happy with the players the Saints were able to retain from last season and with some key additions they made during free agency, including veteran receiver David Patten, who won three Super Bowls with New England, and tight end Eric Johnson, who led San Francisco in receptions three seasons ago.

"I love the guys we have. Eric is going to add another element to that as well," Brees said. "He's a great pass-catcher. I had a chance to throw with him a little bit last week. You can tell, he's just very natural with route-running and catching the ball. I think that's going to help us a lot."

Do you guys think its safe to assume by now that the Colts aren't keeping Jason David? I would imagine so, but I guess they still have a few days.

Right now, I think I speak for all of us, when I say I hope Indianapolis does not match the offer on Jason David.

That been said, there's still one more day to wait and twittle our thumbs and wait...

It's official... as per NFL.com's Adam Schefter's report:

Thursday, April 26
The Indianapolis Colts opted not to match the four-year, $15.7 million offer sheet that restricted free-agent cornerback Jason David signed last week with the New Orleans Saints. The Saints now get David and the Colts get one of New Orleans' three fourth-round picks.

Who's excited? This guy! :D

ummmmmmmmm......



'AP reports Colts officials spent the last three days wrestling with what might be their most important decision of the offseason. They're still not saying anything. On Thursday, team president Bill Polian used his predraft news conference to contradict several media reports that the Colts would not match New Orleans' four-year offer sheet to CB Jason David, letting him leave the Super Bowl champions. "That's wrong because I have not opted yet, at least Tony (Dungy) and I haven't," Polian said. "We're still working through some issues and we don't have to do anything. Right now, we're still working through the last little details." David's agent, Cary Fabrikant, said the Colts had not informed him of their intentions.'

Apparently we released Punter Mitch Berger, according to NFL Network. Will work on getting a link.

No surprise here, after the Mare acquisition we have our kickoff guy. It's time for Weatherford to take over, he's younger and will only get better with more experience. The only major thing he needs to work on really is pinning opponents inside the 10.

:( Well, being that I *think* the deadline is today... I don't think they have much time.

He looked like he had a pretty big leg last year. Hopefully he turns out to be pretty solid.

Deadline for Jason Davis is Friday..so..tomorrow-ish.

Are you sure?

Under the terms of the NFL's Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Colts have seven days (until Thursday, April 26) to match the terms and conditions of the Saints' offer. If Indianapolis elects not to match New Orleans' offer, they would receive the Saints' fourth-round draft choice (#126 overall) as compensation.
