re: UDFA Signing thread.

This has been a great draft. The team has addressed every single perceived need in some way. Couldn't be happier.

On running plays away he consistently makes sure the play is going away and then crashes down the line to track down the play in pursuit. He consistently maintains outside contain responsibility on outside runs to his side of the field, is able to defeat blocker and makes tackle or forces play back inside so teammates can make the play.

He won't fit in well with our defense then

I wish we would've signed some tall corners but Sweeting looked pretty tall in that picture, also Reddick looks pretty good!

Just talking out my arse I'm gonna say Chase Sweeting and Reddick make the final cut.
The fame I will garner if correct will be beyond description!

Man I can't believe we picked up my guy Alston. He is a hard runner and a nice blocker. Hope he makes the PS at least. Good dude.

Was he mostly asked to block and how is his blitz pic-up?

re: UDFA Signing thread.
Yeah, the last season he wasn't running too much (injury and what not) so mainly a lot blocking, and he is a pretty good blocker during blitz pickup. Could be a nice full back (size-wise) for us or a nice ivory replacement.

Saints posted a short write up on each FA too, the forum said it's too long to post cause it's over 7900 characters:

I think this Ryan Griffen kid has a lot of upside. Videos of seen, albeit very limited, show that he has good touch on his passes, mechanics seem fine. does seem to throw off his back foot at times. Could be a good understudy to Brees

Why need to draft jarvis jones? When we got chase freaking Thomas!


That's so bad, it deserves a double

ETA: I love the signing of Chase and other UDFA's as well.

Kevin Reddick and Chase Thomas are two guys I thought would be 3rd or 4th rounders.

Still can't believe Chase and Kevin went undrafted.

re: UDFA Signing thread.
What types of contracts do UDFAs sign? Do they make any money by going to practices and such or is it all contingent on making the team?

Sometimes they may get like a 15k signing bonus or so

re: UDFA Signing thread.
Marlon Favorite got $25K and Cadet got $30K last year. Pocket change to a thousand or two is most common. Sometimes there is thought about what team to sign with. Sometimes it's just an auction to the highest bidder.
