Yeah it's hard to fault the team for letting Trey walk. Trey was a good rotational player and then boom, he puts up 13.5 Sacks in his walk year. He was one of the top free agents on the market. There was no way the Saints could've matched the Bengals offer.We couldn’t afford him.
I’m sure the front office would’ve loved to have kept Trey. But no way we’re we going to pay him what Cincy did and still be able to keep Shon, Ram, and franchise Marcus( to hopefully sign later this season). Trey had ONE mega season compared to the other three players, who’ve been consistently great to outstanding since their rookie years.
Even with Trey balling out, I still would want Loomis to make the same decision if we could do it again.
The Saints decided keeping their franchise Corner and Tackle was more of a priority. Hard to argue with that.
