Bellichek might. It's a low 1st rounder for him.It's already set.
Roughly $5 million.
Nobody is gonna try to risk losing a first rounder by making an offer we may not match. So he's in the fold guaranteed.
We aren't signing Hill long term most likely. Which risks losing him next year.
"It's a 'little' worrying" then.I think that's a bit over blown, maybe 20 years ago 33 was old, but with modern training he's youthful. Didn't he have one of the fastest return rates after the achilles tear ?
He's an edge defender. Too small to be a 43 de and can't pass cover well enough to be a 43 lb. Unless we're switching to a 34 i don't see the fit. Sure he could hold up as a situational 43 de like pass rush only, but he'd cost too much for that role and he's been hurt way too much past 7 years.He’d instantly be the 2nd best LB on the team, even at his age. Smart veteran leader. We’re thin at the position, and while we need to draft one, he will provide instant NFL experience and help mentor the younger guys. Would help mitigate the loss of Klein in the short-term. If there’s a better option floating around, I must not have heard.
Great post and I agree, when we have better balance we can contend...I hope SP goes into this season determined to play to the strengths of a very good run blocking line and 2 good to great RB's....Yes it did win a championship 11 years ago and the Saints were also the #3 rushing team in the league that season. 11 years in the NFL is an eternity.
It was one of the very few seasons that the Saints ran any semblance of a balanced attack so all the records and the passing yards are great but in the big picture it still doesn't mean squat!!
I read a story a few years ago when Bill Parcells wanted to make Sean Payton his OC and he asked him to draw up 100 plays............ 70% of the plays were pass plays.
Parcells crumbled it up and threw it into a waste basket...................I wonder why he did that.
Apples and oranges. Klein plays inside and is the coach on the field (he positions the defense). Matthews plays outside and is basically a stand up pass rusher....Clay Matthews > AJ Klein
