I don't understand why the saints aren't a major player for Alge! I feel like if healthy he is better all around TE then Shockey and all we would have to do is pay him no draft picks leaving with picking him up! I would like to see a 5 year 22.5 million deal with about 12 million gar.
I'd rather have Troupe as well. He'll come significantly cheaper and has, believe it or not, more "upside". Alge is maxed out, he is what he is, and that's a big physical target who drops too many balls.
I read on KFFL and Rotoworld both that he is expected to make his decision Monday after visiting his 5th team and while most are assuming the seahags pick him up b/c of the Jim Mora Jr connection the Titans have the largest offer for him at this point.
