| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Cody Latimer Rising Which WR Will Fall? - Zoombop on 4/29/14 at 10:03 am|
Cody Latimer is looking more and more like a top 20 pick in this draft. Too raw for my taste, though he certainly looks the part and was a very good receiver in college.
But I think this will make one of either Marqise Lee, Cooks, or Beckham fall into our laps at #27 as Latimer has the size/spee...

I know some of us have quietly been building our own Big Boards, so now with the draft a few weeks away I wanna see what they look like. Yes, I understand that ST has made a collective Big Board but this is a little different. Here's mine, now with just running backs!

So I sat down today on my lunch break to watch a couple of Marcus Martin games and I came away both very impressed and slightly disappointed.
The first game I watched was against Notre Dame where he was consistently matched up against Louis Nix and occasionally Stephon Tuitt, two potential 1st r...

[quote]Rodger Saffold - T - Free Agent
Ex-Rams G/T Rodger Saffold has failed his physical with the Raiders, voiding his five-year, $42.5 million contract.
He's once again a free agent. It's to the point where we just feel bad for GM Reggie McKenzie, who is simply out of his dep...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Hypothetical: Jimmy Graham or Darrelle Revis? - Zoombop on 3/10/14 at 8:41 pm|
With the Bucs potentially releasing Revis, he could soon be a free agent. There's no way the Saints will sign him, but I'm looking to have a little fun. Who would you rather have at $12mil a year, assuming that's how much Jimmy wants and Revis would take less than he's making now, Graham or Revis? ...

In light of the news of the salary cap increases, this should be the ideal time to extend Cam Jordan and Junior Galette.
Both of them really had breakout years, and are about to hit their primes. We have reason to believe that both players will be even better next year and in the following years...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Draft Hypothetical - Zoombop on 2/18/14 at 3:57 pm|
Say Zach Martin falls to No. 27, and the top safeties and corners are off the board. Would you select him and have him compete at LG or RT? Maybe even C.
If he shows well enough at the guard spot, which many people seem to believe he can be an All-Pro guard, would you put him there and make Grubb...

The Pelicans would come in at either 7th or 8th on this list for me. I wouldn't be shocked to see teams like San Antonio, Denver, and Memphis struggle though. The Spurs are getting older, and part of me believes that this season...

It still hasn't sunken in for anyone yet, for those that love the deal, and for those that hate the deal. However, that's not going to stop me from analyzing it immediately. So, right off the bat, I'll give you my grade:
My initial reaction to picking Noel was surreal. How could a pl...

For much of the season, I was on the 'Trade Eric Gordon' Train. His injury issues mixed with his personality (or lack thereof) and his bloated contract made me sick to my stomach. I was glued to my computer screen around the trade deadline hoping for some movement, any movement, but, alas, Gordon re...

With the draft over and the team signing a few undrafted players, I felt this would be an interesting topic. Payton and Loomis have had great success with undrafted players, molding them into not just contributors, but major cogs in the chemistry of this team. This year's UDFA class is headlined by ...

If he's here, it would be silly for the team to pass him up. Jones is the best football player available in this draft in my opinion. He's explosive off the edge and strong as an ox. He has viole...

Free agency for the Saints hasn't been as eventful as it has been over the past few years, but that is just fine.
