S.Graham: possibly resign, bring to camp to compete

J.Graham: No way he's going anywhere, sure he might not be the most physical TE out there but still damn good. Plus, security blanket for Brees at times.

Strief: resign for right amount, may be time for a previous draft choices to step up (A. Tiller, M. Jones). Or possibly resign Charles to take Strief's place.

DLP: I think a must sign here. Knows the system, familiar with the two guys next to him....Some say "he played horrible!" let me remind you horrible; SAINTS SIGN OLIN KREUTZ.

Meach: Let go

Brown: See Strief

McCown: Let go... Time for Griffin to be our #2, high hopes for this kid.

Collins: Resign, love watching him plow into ppl. Underrated

Morgan: Resign, shouldn't cost much. Young and fast possibly our future field stretcher

Jenkins: Resign but only if he understands he can easily be replaced and takes paycut. He can really decent at times but the simple poor angles and lack of awareness at times overshine that.

Haralson: Must resign! Enjoyed watching him play. Holds his own against opponent and sheds blocks. Understood how to contain the edges.

Vilma: Let go

Herring: God awful...Think we should have kept the UDFA LB from Stanford OR M. Wilson instead of Herring.

Humber: Resign for right price... Decent backup when we needed him, a little bit of speed with a little thump to him.

Dawson: Def wouldn't mind keeping but I could see them letting him go. he got pressure on opponent while he played, pretty quick for LB.

Coleman: let go

Pugh: Don't know anything about the man... Let go

T. Johnson: gone. I think since the emergence of walker and foster, he became replacable. Hell get picked up quickly though.

R. Bush: MUST resign. Probably the 3rd most important resign for us. Physical, got a little speed to him, lays the wood (Harvin smash anyone?? I LOVED IT) but can't catch... HELL if you're a Saints Safety you can't catch, bless their hearts :) Vaccaro, Bush, Jenkins( or S draft pick in 2nd or 3rd) in our 4-2-5 or 3-3-5 sets would be awesome.

Sorry for the length... Had some extra time on my hands

I can't agree with taking an OLB/DE in the 1st rd. We need playmakers on offense.

How can you say that? You've never seen the Stanford LB play @ a NFL level and Wilson was cut due to lack of production. I agree Herring isn't that good, but trust me, there's worse.

quote:

Coleman: let go


Once again, you haven't seen him play in Black and Gold. That's like saying cut Butler. Which would be insanely stupid.

Coleman is what...34? Maybe 35?
Butler is 26 or 27?

Butler has a future, Coleman is most likely at his decline if not already past. 35 yrs old playing DT, I think the roster spot alone would be worth inserting a younger FA or by draft.

Unless Coleman wishes to retire I would bet they would invite him to camp and at least give him another shot. Would seem to be a very long shot to make the roster.

New Orleans Saints earned NFL’s best local TV market rating for the 2013 regular season
The New Orleans Saints registered the highest local TV market rating of all NFL cities during the 2013 regular season, according to the SportsBusiness Daily.
New Orleans earned a household rating of 52.0, which means 52.0 percent of all homes in the market were tuned in during Saints games. The rating is 14 percent higher than the team’s 2012 rating, 8.5 percent higher than the next best team and 23.5 points higher than the NFL's 2013 average.


That is quite impressive.

Can we get our draft choice back now,
Roger?

And it's not just local viewership. I was born and raised in New Orleans, but have lived in Los Angeles since 1993. I buy the NFL Ticket on Direct TV every year just so I can watch all the Saints games.

We have WHO DATS scattered all over! I'm a electrical contractor for a Japanese Chemical plant and all they talk about is the Saints. They claim they never miss a game (unless they're working). They're not too fond of LSU though, mostly Saints. I've been trying for 2yrs to get them to translate "who dat" in Japanese but it can't be done properly according to them.

WHO DAT!!

Who dat is tough to translate for someone who didnt grow up in New Orleans. A few months back I was playing golf at my club, wearing my Saints 'Who Dat' cap as always. An older, disntinguished gentleman walks up to me at the tee and says, "Excuse me. Are you a Saints fan?" I said yes, I am. He said, "I thought so. I could see that you were wearing a 'who did that' hat."

"Who did that!" Doesn't quite have the same ring.

So.. My Madden Franchise just finished the 2015 season, and Armstead won offensive lineman of the year for the NFC. He is 95 overall ranking.

Sign of things to come? I think so.

Yes. It's taken me since the release of the game to make it this far. 6 months. I usually only have time for a game here or there.
