TP question: If you could only keep 5, who would they be?

Obviously everyone will say Drew Brees, so this question is really about the other four. I also think tight end Jimmy Graham will be close to a unanimous pick (he'd be on my list). After that, it gets a bit interesting.

Strong cases could be made for guard Jahri Evans, left tackle Jermon Bushrod, tailback Darren Sproles, receiver Marques Colston, cornerback Jabari Greer, linebacker Curtis Lofton and end Cameron Jordan for various reasons. I also wouldn't rule out safeties Malcolm Jenkins and Roman Harper - or even Pro Bowl punter Thomas Morstead.

Or maybe some of you love the potential of receiver Joe Morgan or defensive tackle Akiem Hicks enough to put them on your list. Or longtime fan favorites Pierre Thomas or Lance Moore. Or you don't want to see veterans Will Smith or Jonathan Vilma get away.


I don't agree that everyone would pick Drew in the top 5 (for age/salary reasons).

My 5 would be (in no particular order): Evans, Morstead, Cam, Drew, Colston.

Honorable mention to Ingram, Hicks, and Graham.

Drew - obvious
Jahri - obvious
Lofton - best player on D imo
Graham - Still one of a kind type talent without wrist injuries
Hicks - kinda a homerun swing but I feel like this guy is going to be special for us.

I was torn between cam jordan and hicks for last spot. I'm going for highest possible ceiling with hicks instead of what I see now with CJ

Colston gets snubbed by me because he honestly loses the ball way too much and hes not getting any younger or new knees. He's got amazing go and get it hands and large frame. I dont really feel hes irreplaceable though.

Pardon the ignorance but how long was Lofton's deal for? Did he only sign a 1 year deal last offseason?

I take back all my knock's on the guy - he played pretty damn well on a pretty bad D. His weak spot is still pass coverage - but it's not bad at all... everyone has some weak spot.

Punts & kickoffs, happening multiple times a game, are extremely important. And we've got one of the best doing both.
