If we let Bushrod walk, hopefully we have a solid backup plan in place.

WTH. I don't get it, we need to release these guys/
Unless they are willing to play for less than $2 million a year, I don't get it. We do not need to be hamstrung by aging veterans taking up too much of our cap.

Larry Holder ‏<s>@</s>LarryHolder Analysis: <s>#</s>Saints more likely to keep Will Smith, Jonathan Vilma than cut ties | http://NOLA.com http://www.nola.com/saints/index.ssf/2013/03/analysis_new_orleans_saints_mo.html …

:shrug: I just cant wait till the deadline to see what all happens
La Canfora is not the most reliable of sources. Loomis or the current Saints regime does not show their hand until they are absolutely forced to. Everything we see now is just hearsay and conjecture. The wait and see approach continues.
usually what canfora says its the opposite... so vilma and smith are gone... :scratch:

If Will Smith and Vilma are still here and Bushrod is gone, we've made a terrible choice. You don't let a significant piece of a top rank offense go while simultaneously bringing back the most expensive pieces of what was the worst defense in history. This really should be an easy call. Keep our record breakingly efficient offense intact or keep our record breaking horrible defense intact? :shrug: I don't know how this could be more simple.

How come you aren't employed as a GM for any of the NFL teams?? Loomis and Payton decisions have won a Super Bowl!!! Let them make the decisions!!

Jermon Bushrod - T - Saints
There have reportedly been no significant talks at all between the Saints and free agent LT Jermon Bushrod.
It's a surprise that the Saints aren't doing more to retain Drew Brees' blindside protector. They haven't yet slashed the salaries of Jonathan Vilma or Will Smith, giving them little wiggle room under the cap. Bushrod will test the market, which means the Saints will be playing with fire.
eyy

I see he went back after someone clarified for him that we would be "paying" nothing if we cut him. He seemed to lose sight of the difference btw cap and cash.

@12thmansports::Looks like Saints will keep Will Smith, Vilma, & Roman Harper. Bushrod, Sedrick Ellis, Chase Daniel, Casillas, & Elbert Mack look to be gone
