I don't think Simmons is an upgrade over Simoneau, I think that is more of a lateral move. I really want to see them bring in Hamlin.

Default Chris Draft and William James (formerly Will Peterson)

Source: http://www.shreveporttimes.com/apps/...028/SPORTS0202

"Safety Deon Grant and linebacker Chris Draft were the latest to be brought to New Orleans by the Saints, who also hosted linebacker Brian Simmons on Saturday and safety Ken Hamlin on Sunday.

Meanwhile, cornerback William James is due in on Tuesday, said his agent, Ron Slavin, who also negotiated lineman Hollis Thomas’ new four-year contract with the Saints."



I'm intrigued by James. He was a very solid corner for the Giants when he was healthy. Problem is, obviously, the health concerns. If we could sign him cheap, or to a contract that is heavily backloaded, I'd be all for bringing him in and giving him a shot. Will James in a wheelchair is a better option than Fred Thomas.

As for Draft, he's flying way under my radar. Didn't know all that much about him except that he's been in the NFC South forever, but take a look at his stats from last year: 109 tackles, 6 sacks, and 8 (8!) fumble recoveries. I always say stats aren't everything, but he seems like a guy who could possibly help improve our D.

Whaddaya think?

Apparently former 49ers Tight End, Eric Johnson is scheduled for a visit on Tuesday. Interesting, he's had injury problems in the past but he's a reliable pass catcher when healthy.

The New Orleans Saints will host S Kevin Kaesviharn and TE Eric Johnson on Monday and Tuesday, the team announced this afternoon.

- Also the latest rumor going around SaintsReport, is that Brian Simmons who we supposedly were going to agree to terms with, left town without a contract offer. It's unconfirmed so I would take it with a grain of salt.

I like Hamlin and that he brings experience to the team, but I think that Bullocks and Roman Harper could be a tandom together if given the chance. Simmons would totally help us though at MLB.

Hey dude, welcome to the forum... and I love the name, by the way... :)

I agree that Ken Hamlin would be a great addition for this team, but what I wonder is if either Roman Harper hasn't fully recovered from his injuries or the Saints have given up on Josh Bullocks. Personally, I didn't like the pick of Bullocks or Harper to be honest, but both have been solid, even thought Harper really hasn't had the chance to shine yet.

As for the other free agents that have been brought in, I would not mind if the Saints got someone like TE Eric Johnson. We could use a solid pass-catching tight end, and I think that Johnson would be an upgrade in that department.

I agree with you, but I did hear something on the local news that caught my attention.

According to the sports anchor, he's got great leadership and locker room presence, so that's good. :)

We'll have to see what happens, since no official source has anything reported.

Whaddaya think?

William Petersen? You mean Gil Grissom would be one of our starting cornerbacks?

Well, even HE would be an upgrade over Fred Thomas! :(

Anyway, back to the topic.

I agree that William James would, if healthy, be a solid improvement over either Fred Thomas or Jason Craft. I wouldn't be surprised if the Saints or someone else takes a flier on him, since like you said, he can be a solid player (when healthy) and for us, he'd be an upgrade for our weak secondary.

With Chris Draft, I don't know if he's much of necessity, especially if the Saints did indeed sign Brian Simmons. But I do agree that his stats, if nothing else, are impressive.

I agree getting a good tight end would be a clutch move. I thought Boo Williams was going to work out untill he got injured and never came back. Someone like Johnson or Daniel Graham would give our offense another solid weapon.

Bullocks is a player who just needs to find consistantcy. He has showed good along with bad. Good thing about Bullocks though is he can play Free and strong safety if we we brought in Hamlin. Our defense is a free agent and a good draft pick away I think. Only other thing, I hope we look at travis Fisher. He's legit

It's a shame Joe is gone, but Colston and Henderson together could be deadly. Horn was getting old and it is clear that Payton is clearing out a lot of the old team, veterans included, and trying to start fresh. Deuce is still a good leader and it's obvious Reggie can bring some of that to the table as well. As long as Horn doesnt end up being a filthy Falcon

I think it all depends which S is better in run support and which one is better in coverage. Right now I would say that Hamlin is better in coverage so I would play him at FS and move Bullocks to SS. This is all dependent on if we sign Hamlin, if not then we are just farting into the wind.

Although one thing I really like about Hamlin is that he's a hard hitter, which is something that the Saints lack. I think that if we would be able to sign him, he could step in and start if Roman Harper isn't 100 percent and would be a definite improvement over Omar Stoutmire or Jay Bellamy.

I'm guessing it'll be announced soon, but Brian Simmons on the Saints have officially come to terms on a 3 year deal.

Nola.com

Quote:
The Saints made their first free-agent acquisition of the offseason when veteran linebacker Brian Simmons agreed to a three-year contract with the Saints, his agent Jerrold Colton said late Monday night.

Not a blockbuster move or anything, but I think it'll be a solid upgrade. Simmons brings another hardworking, veteran presence who can be a leader on Defense.

As per ESPN.com and NewOrleansSaints.com:

Brian Simmons is now officially a New Orleans Saint.

Saints add to defense, agree with LB Simmons
Saints agree to Terms with LB Brian Simmons

So now, that it's a done deal, what do you think of the signing and who would you go after if you were the Saints' front office?

Even with the Simmons signing (which I'm warming up to), I still believe that we should still target another linebacker, whether it be in free agency or the Draft.

I know that the Draft is full of linebackers that could if nothing else provide depth, but we'll have to see what the Saints do now.

I think Simmons was a solid signing.

The more I think about it, the guy out there who could have the biggest defensive impact for us is Ken Hamlin. The only thing is I really like both Bullocks and Harper. Can Hamlin play cornerback, and how good would he be at corner?

I'd also like for us to give William James (Peterson) a one year deal, just to see if he could return to form.

------
So far I'm loving the way this off-season has been going. We're keeping the main core of the team together, to ensure continuity, and chemistry. While still trying to make upgrades at need positions without blowing the bank and overpaying for overpriced players which would put us in a bad cap situation down the line.

Now it's time to improve the CB situation, sign a solid Safety, add D-line depth, and maybe find a starting TE.

Kind of saw that one coming. Not so sure about signing him though. He could be great or he could be, well you know.

Please Payton no. :( Don't sign this guy.. I've watched him kick last season he was just plain awful. Sailing chip shot field goals wide and he can't even kick off... heck at this point Carney is better then him

Personally, I wouldn't take a chance on Vanderjagt. I know that he was a solid kicker for several years, but I don't know, there's something about him that I'm not entirely sold on. I would like to think that the Saints re-sign Billy Cundiff and then either bring back Connor Hughes or get a kicker late in the draft or signing an undrafted free agent to compete for the starting job.
