I think it's just going to make it hurt that much more when we lose out on these guys, and have to "settle" for others.
Most of the reports that state we're interested in all these players do so because we have so much cap room and so many holes... There's no way to tell if we're seriously interested in anybody besides Zach Thomas (who we lost out on) and Dan FREAKIN Morgan.
I don't really see why. It doesn't help our team to be mentioned as "possible suitors" and "leading candidates" for a certain player. I'm convinced that the reason Randy Mueller was so popular around here is because he was always "making a splash" in FA. But going out and signing players for the sake of making headlines does not necessarily make our team better.I'm not talking about Samual specifically, I mean in the past few years.
It's so nice to have people mention the Saints in FA as rumors!
