Also remember that the Saints offered Von Bell a nice contract and he said no (actually he said I want more) so it’s his fault not the Saints. It’s not that we got rid of him. In addition Williams is still under contract but if he tries to hold us up he’ll be gone too. The premise of the OP is not reality. We didn’t get rid of Bell and we still have Williams on his rookie contract. It is what it is.
You are right. I guess the issue with Bell and Ingram is we are not willing to potentially leave holes at the expense of waiting on a player hoping to maximize their earnings. Looks like Bell cost himself money waiting on a big payday.Also remember that the Saints offered Von Bell a nice contract and he said no (actually he said I want more) so it’s his fault not the Saints.

He has two less tackles than Bell and more passes defended not to mention the INT. How is he always late if he's defending passes better?INTs don’t tell you the story with Marcus. He’s always late. Never playing the ball. Attaching the WR and not the ball, draws flags.
Not playing the ball on the TD to Allen and taking a poor angle in his initial pursuit of Justin Jackson on his long run.Please feel free to correct me if im wrong, but I can't recall a single big play from this past Monday where Marcus was to blame. It was PJ Williams.
Its just the opposite of the situation on the other side of the ball where you have receivers the likes of Jimmy Graham, Robert Meachem, Lance Moore, etc, who flourish here and flop elsewhere.THIS. If you're wondering why Jenkins was mediocre here then looked better in Philly to only return to look mediocre again. Or why all the talent we have in the secondary isn't translating to an improved secondary. If you can't come up with an answer, you're focusing on the wrong unit. This is a coaching and scheme issue. The obvious answer is the answer. Players playing better elsewhere. Talented players are underperforming or regressing since their rookie year. It's NOT the players. It's what they're being asked to do.
Given! that's not my Complaint. It's what he did after he got there. he just never seems to deliver. he is not a hawk. there was an opportunity for action and he seems to have missed it again. just being there didn't prevent the TD! go back and watch.Marcus Williams' assignment was to play deep safety on the OTHER half of the field. The deep safety on that side was PJ. Yes, you do see Marcus running onto the screen late, after the Charger player gets into the endzone. But that was just him streaking across the field trying to make a play. But that wasn't his assignment. It us extremely unfair to continually bash a player who wasn't at fault.
