re: NFL Compensatory Picks announced - blueslover
dayum, as bad as we thought... Total compensatory picks from 1994 to now. Amazing we have done as well as we have when examining the teams at the top and bottom of the list. Baltimore 48 Green Bay 38 Dallas 37 New England 34 Los Angeles Rams 33 Pittsburgh 32 ...

re: NFL Compensatory Picks announced - blueslover
relevant from PFT that I agree fully with... When the NFL implemented compensatory draft picks in 1994, the idea was that the extra picks would lend a hand to the teams that got out-spent in free agency, which was then new in the league: Compensatory picks go to teams that lose more in free agenc...

Should We?: Jamaal Charles - blueslover
Word is KC is gonna cut him after two straight injury plagued seasons and they can save his entire $6.2mil salary against the cap when cutting. I'm thinking he will be near prove-it deal status and not require a back breaking deal. When he was on he might have been better in this offense than Sp...

re: Free Agent Signings In the Payton Era - blueslover
Have to throw this in that I just read today... A good example from last spring: the Saints overpaying for yet another skill player while ignoring their porous defense. Who really wanted to pay Coby Fleener $36 million over five years with $18 million guaranteed? Fleener delivered New Orleans eig...

re: Free Agent Signings In the Payton Era - blueslover
Brees of course I go Greer and Sharper next. Defense has been overall poor but they scored a year of magic out of old Sharper. Greer was not a big name but came in and solidified a perpetually weak area Sproles my #4, a perfect piece for a Payton offense and provided a little return game jui...

re: JPP Anyone? - blueslover
7 sacks in 12 starts last year, 50 sacks in 69 starts equates to 11.6 per 16. 11 forced fumbles, 7 recoveries, 2 INTs, 42 passes defended legit, just a matter of price...

re: JPP Anyone? - blueslover
ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan considers the franchise tag a real possibility for impending free agent Jason Pierre-Paul. The franchise number for defensive ends is around $17.05 million. [b]On any long-term deal, JPP is expected to command $15 million-plus annually[/b], so slapping him with th...

JPP Anyone? - blueslover
Cannot remember any discussion about him. Anyhoo, the commentary here is more notable than the JPP idea IMO. New Orleans Saints: Jason Pierre-Paul, defensive end [b]Few teams take as many big swings in free agency as the Saints, and they usually miss.[/b] They have more cap space than they've...

FA possibility: Andre Ellington - blueslover
guy at CSC makes a good case, I like the idea... Ellington may be a low-risk, high-reward signing that can at best add a new element to the offense. At worst, it keeps the Saints from needing to reach on a draft pick. He can be released with little financial penalty. At best, Ellington turns out ...

Saints Draft Outlook from an AFC GM - blueslover
When it came to the New Orleans Saints it is obvious the team needs to get better on the defensive side of the ball, but like myself, the general manager feels as though Sean Payton may try to go offense with the second-round choice. "The Saints are an explosive offense and they can score, but th...

Best free agent signings of 2016 - blueslover
Mack and Sanu were key for the dirty birds improvement. Fairley #12 Fairley played out his second “prove-it” deal in as many seasons, doing so to the tune of a career-high 6.5 sacks and 43 total tackles. The big defensive tackle is certain to get a lucrative long-term deal now after staying heal...

re: Most likely team to trade back with? - blueslover
Most years I'm for it but not this one. I want as high of an impact player as possible. It's early but I'm thinking they will be able to choose among a few that would all make us happy. 6 to 8 spots= about #52 to #60 in the 2nd Rd btw...

re: Saints to pursue Melvin Ingram and possible trade for Talib? - blueslover
Ingram had a slow start but has really come on in his all around game the past couple of years. Probably my ideal signing at this point. Haven't seen anyone mention Nick Perry. He had 11 sacks last year after only 12 in his first 4 years. I think Ingram is legitimately on the rise. Perry I dun...
