Saints to negotiate with Bushrod next week when cap issues are resolved.

“made it clear” that they want to keep Bushrod and that they will be getting to serious talks on a contract next week once they iron out their cap issues.


I think we'll found out soon about Vilma and Smith. Don't know how I feel about keeping Bushrod. Depends on what he wants.

I like Bushrod just because of the name alone... He happens to be a decent player too.

Same here. He's a slightly above average tackle, who most likely will be seeking to cash in on his Pro Bowl nod. If the price is right, then sure.

The continuity would help because I have a feeling Strief isn't going to be starting this year.

The guy isn't worth top shelf money.

who's talking top shelf, he's better than average and good OT's don't come cheap... we're gambling changing up with an less known player coming in.

i really dont want to shake up the line. we saw what happened when we are riddled with injuries last year. the o line and QB positions are really tied to continuity.

Our idiot fans think that all cuts should be made NOW, even though no moves are official until the league year starts and some of those guys may be trade bait, etc.

I think its clear they want the continuity along the line. Also, that pretty much would seal BPA on defense. The only though of an offensive pick would have been OL

Yep...the team is one or two 3rd string linebacker cuts away from being under the cap and the deadline is still almost two weeks away. Might as well slow down now and wait for the other teams' cuts to hit the waiver wire. Wonder how many roster bonus's are upcoming?

I beleive this would be a good move as well. Continuity is key to an offensive line. This also lets us have our first round pick on a OLB or a NT. Just hope he gives a discount.
