The Saints will shift their attention to striking a deal with recently released Panthers MLB Dan Morgan, now that Zach Thomas, who had received an offer from New Orleans, has signed with the Cowboys. Morgan has battled concussions and most recently a partially torn Achilles tendon, but if healthy, he would be a major upgrade over the squad's 2007 middle linebacker, Mark Simoneau, who will become an unrestricted free agent Feb. 29.

You know, I don't mind Morgan, for depth and possible spot start duty....

BUT, if the Saints think this guy is the future at MLB. This is BAD.

Hey, it's something, however, we can't consider him the answer at MLB. Consider this:

59 Games Played
53 Games Missed

Has anyone heard if we are at least toying with the idea of going after Briggs? Seems like it would make sense but I don't think I have seen anyone other than SR people speculate this.

I know. It kind of feels like a band aid situation to me. But I guess anything would be an upgrade.

When you're looking at a guy like Morgan, it's not a good thing. One could argue desperation has set in.

This is bad, very, very bad. Has the curse left the dome and moved to Airline Hwy? What time is the tryouts for walk-ons? My 5yr old is looking to make a couple mil.

With so many gaping holes on D, you would think we could have made at least one move by now. But all the corners got franchised and there doesn't seem to be much out there in the way of LBs and DTs.

What are they basing this on? Guessing? Speculation like this without confirmation by a team source is such a waste of time.

I'm going to shift my focus on another beer. Come on draft day!

He's not the future at anything. He's this years Brian Simmons.
