Let's face it guys we won't win until we start getting younger in most of these vet positions. We can't afford to keep everyone but at least lets just break down the right way and put it all back together. SAINTS 4 LIFE!!! Winston will find another home else where and so will Taysom.

This isn't a rebuild roster it's a retool roster. This isn't a team that has time to grow with a rookie QB. It's built to insert a veteran and instantly make a playoff run.
Why not do both? Draft a BPA QB if the option presents itself and play a QB we can afford while the rookie matures (be it Winston or otherwise).

and Bridgewater

I say we draft Mahones if not take Marshon. BPA gets it done
I'm all for BPA in most cases. Especially at positions of need.

If Mac Jones isn't there I'm all for Zaven Collins, Jabril Cox, Hunter Long, or Pat Freiermuth.

I imagine they'll go guard like Quinn Miners though.

Maybe even NT Alim McNeil.

They should get a good player either way.

Well, if someone Payton loves falls to a spot we are picking, then sure.

The issue is that, outside the top five or so, QB is rarely BPA anymore. Teams usually target them and go up to get them, which requires assets.

Mahomes? Chiefs traded up.
Watson? Texans traded up
Allen? Bills traded up
Jackson? Ravens traded up

If you truly love a QB, you have to go get them. And if you truly love a QB, odds are someone else does, too. So you have to give up picks that could otherwise be used to fortify your roster for a run now.

In what positions do we have Vets
Running Backs are under 30
Wide Receivers are under 30 except Sanders
Oline everybody under 30

Secondary is young except Jenkins And Jenkins

Defensive line is probably youngest position on the team with only Cam being “old” yet I’ll take old Cam over 57 other starting DEs

In the context of the original post doing both wasn’t presented. I have no problem with your suggested solution.

If that's true then we probably don't have a shot at him. I could see the Saints climbing into the low teens from where they are if they saw someone they wanted, but not the top ten.
