Kind of shocked we haven't signed this guy yet. His name hasn't been mentioned with any teams interested in signing him or anything. Could he be waiting to see if there is a bigger contract available or do the Saints just not want him back?

He was a playmaker in the few games he took part in. I remember him adjusting well to catch a pick against Oakland as well as the New York game.

He'll probably be back. I think we're focusing what little money we do have on needs. Mack, although he did play well for us last year, isn't a huge need right now. I guess you could compare it to Roby's situation last year. A player we could have probably done without but we brought back anyway to compete for a spot. He was resigned later in free agency. Of course last year we had more $ to spend. Mack is a guy that can be got for cheap because its unlikely we'll have yo bid for his services, if we do I see us not getting in any type of bidding war for him as he can be replaced.

If he can be had for cheap why not sign him now? We only really have 4 corners and we will end up with at least 5 and maybe 6.

I thought he was the lone bright spot among our corners last season.

Pretty sure Johnson was gone before we even signed Mack.
I remember Johnson being put on IR during the preseason. But then he did an injury settlement to be freed up but i never heard anything else. I thought he looked pretty good last pre-season.

I'm not disagreeing. Maybe I shouldn'tve said "had for cheap". We've got a few guys on the roster already for cheaper right now in Davis, Steed, and Turner. Plus the UFA's we'll probably bring in that are cheaper. We're penny pinching at the moment. I can't see us going out of our way for a DB that would be 4th or 5th on the depth chart at best when there are cheaper options. But as I said. I agree. He earned a spot on this team last yr. Just not a need. Still gotta take care of other positions.

That's how I remember it too. He looked damn good during the preseason.

I'd love to have him and porter back. That would be good CB depth.
