Thinking they will announce after 3 pm because that's when some deal with compensatory picks expires. Supposedly, we will get a comp. pick for losing Teddy, but if we signed Jameis, we would lose it.

No. It’s because if he signs after 4:00 ET, the Bucs don’t get a comp pick (and we don’t lose one next year).

I don't think the Bucs get one anyway since I think they cut him. But, it is because we don't want to lose a comp pick.

He wasn’t cut. He played under the 5th year option last year so his contract expired. He is eligible for a comp pick.

Maybe Loomis and Payton are spending time to consider the thoughts and considerations given by posters on this board?

but probably not.

I think we'd lose the 6th round AJ Klein compensatory pick...is that right?

I know he’s been a knucklehead, but he’s still young... and he was the number 1 overall pick when he came out... (not that that means everything). Still, if it costs the Saints a 6th round comp pick next year (at the end of round 6) to have a chance for Sean Payton to evaluate and work with him (under the guidance of Drew “freakin” Brees) for an entire season... I’m all for it.

Considered by scouting community to be advanced in ability to scan field and get through progressions. Has natural feel for throwing windows and anticipates openings that other college quarterbacks don't see. Has height to see over offensive line and thickness of build to withstand NFL hits. Big arm by NFL standards. Gets full extension and follow through into throws with ability to drive ball into the seam in front of safeties. Can make all of the field-side throws teams need. Most teammates very trusting and protective of him, according to regional scouts. Aware in pocket, but not overly jittery. Good feel for edge pressure and steps up into pocket while continuing his scan. When pressure mounts, so does his focus. Shows faith in his wide receivers and willing to go right back to them after a drop. Strong lower body and able to shake free of some would-be sacks and get rid of the ball. Fierce competitor and unafraid of mistakes. Shows above-average football character. Will make throws and take chances others won't, which can be a special trait if properly harnessed.
