I know this is a disconcerting day, losing guys and not having any action on our part to immediately fill holes. However, this free agency is different than any in recent memory. Good veteran players are getting whacked left and right, flooding the market, making it a buyers market -- hence Will Smith and Vilma wisely cutting deals to stay with Saints. There will be some nice bargains on good players to be had. Not flush with cap space, the Saints have no choice but to let the shark feeding frenzy go on without them the first few days. When the dust settles there will be some nice bargains to be had, and in the long run, help us manage our cap down the road. As tough as it is right now, lets have some patience and see how this whole thing plays out. Come July, we might be fairly pleased with what has transpired. It's a long process.
