This really would be great for us. We will have three new star linebackers coming off injury. This should guarantee that at least two of the three will stay healthy for us. You can never have too many good linebackers. Signing Takeo Spikes would really add to an already great offseason. We basically picked up an entire starting caliber LBing corps (Morgan, Vilma, Spikes).

This would be huge and all but eliminate LB from our round 1 needs.

The bigger news is Romo's and Simpson's possible marriage!

yay, another injured linebacker with excellent talent
Hey, Im just glad they seem to still be interested in trying to fix the D problems from last year. Spikes would be an improvement to the postion. I like their approach on not breaking the bank on one guy since they know we need several to make it work. If they can get these players in a low risk deal, then who cares ? What happens if 2 out of the 3 have an entirely injury free season ? You've got a pretty good LB corps, thats what. Can you imagine this team with a defense ? September cant get here fast enough .....................

" The Saints can never have enough injury-prone linebackers." -Rotoworld

You know they have a oint. I'm not a fan of signing Morgan. I hope all the LBs with injuries can stay healthy for us. If not we will once again be holding our heads in shame at a season with so much promise turnnig into an 9-7 or 8-8.

Spikes or Morgan will never take Fujitas spot. He is a top tier lber.

Let's take a look. Hey, sign them and bring them in and the strong will survive.

I said we could possibly pick up a entire LBing corps through FA. This does not mean Spikes will start over Fujita on our depth chart. Our starters would be Fujita, Vilma, and Morgan/Spikes(when one goes down, the other takes his spot:9:).

Here's what Mike D said in the new Ask Mike that just came out about Spikes:

3. A league friend told me that Takeo is basically done as a top-flight NFL performer and has never been the same since the Achilles injury.
