6. Sam Acho, LB, Arizona Cardinals - $273,785
7. Bruce Miller, FB, San Francisco 49ers - $273,476
8. Max Starks, OT, Pittsburgh Steelers - $272,590

He in Jimmy are the only big contracts I can forsee in the near future. He has earned it.

Another example of how well our organization can pull up unknowns and make them great players on our O-Line. Shame we don't have the same talent on the D-Line.

Pay for performance - we don't want any part of that. It's a trick by Goodell.

I see a trend with the D-Line coach.

I wish they would have made a change there.

The Saints have Brees on offense who everyone look awesome. We need the same type of player on defense.
Agree with you that Drew has an uncanny ability at sensing pressure and moving away from it, thus making our O-Line's job much easier. That being said Drew can't move up in the pocket if the center is being pushed back. DLP is another UFA that came in from nowhere to become a solid starter with the Saints. Why can't we seem to do this on the Defensive side of the ball? Well that's above my pay grade.
