Osi Umenyiora wants to be a Saint?

Friend texted me and said they just asked him on First Take something like "if you don't end up staying with the Giants, name some teams you would like to play for".

His very first answer, without any hesitation, was the New Orleans Saints.

I'd take him if he was on the cheap but sources say that is not going to be the case.

He thinks of himself as a top tier pass rusher. He is a shitload of issues with no production.

Your friend is a retard. He named like 12 teams and was making a point that he is a f/a and has no preference right now.

I mean I wouldn't mind it if the numbers were right, but I don't see how he fits the scheme. I guess he could play OLB but that seems like a stretch

He's never played in the 3-4 and he's on the wrong side of 30. I just don't see it happening.

He's kind of got the right build for it... I think his price tag will be too crazy.

If he really wants to play here I hope he's willing to for cheap

Not a good move to get him IMO.

He's Old

His production does not match what he will want in salary

He's never played a 3-4

Not a needed position since we already have Hicks and Jordan to play a 3-4 DE

1.) He's not a 3-4 DE

2.) He would need to be cheap

3.) Best days are way behind him

2009 7.5 sacks
2010 11.5 sacks
2011 9 sacks
2012 sacks

He is 31, doesn't fit our scheme and has a history of being a distraction, and won't be giving any team a "deal". So how exactly am I dumb? Please, tell me. Why do you think I'm wrong.

His best days weren't really all that great. Has Double digit sacks only 3 times in his career.
