Not even 7 if memory serves me correctly. We traded our fifth to move up for Thomas Moorstead and didn't we give the 7th to the Pats for David Thomas...Not sure though, can someone confirm please

Edit: Okay, I'm wrong about Thomas - the pick will come from the 2011 draft. Saints official website says: 'Acquired by Saints from New England Patriots in exchange for a 2011 seventh-round draft choice.'

What a brilliant move to get Morstead. Brilliant...

Winning the Super Bowl and the reaction of the city has helped out with this problem a lot. Players WANT to play here now and most of them will stay...

What is the difference between free agents? Restricted, unrestricted, etc.?

The article is unnecessarily dark when it comes to the 29 FAs. All but 11 are restricted so the Saints will have the right to tender those 18. They will keep the guys they want with high tenders and be compensated for others.

Next the 11 UFAs - New Orleans has suddenly become a very attractive place to play. Do you think that Sharper or Fujita will walk away if the money's even close? I don't. Mickey Loomis has been excellent at keeping the guys the team really covets. Think about it - when was the last time the team lost one of it's own Free Agents they were really trying to keep? The answer is never.

If anything the uncapped year may help keep the Superbowl Saints together. Brees will get a well deserved raise, Sharper and Fujita will re sign, Jahri Evans (RFA) will get a long term deal. The team will have tough decisions to make with Jammal Brown, Jermon Bushrod, and Reggie Bush. But trust Loomis and Payton, they will make the right decisions.........

Some of the classification is wrong on this list since the absence of a CBA means players with less than six years will be RFAs not UFAs (this list is based on the old four years experience rule).

Also, Will Smith has resigned I believe.
