Hey, where'd Ben Troupe play college ball? I can't remember and I'm too lazy to look it up myself.
By the way, I do think he could be a good signing playing with Brees. Of course I also thought Eric Johnson would have had a better year than he did last year with Brees, and that didn't really happen.
Ben has been on multiple visits and has yet to sign, that tells me his asking price is way high. Honestly I would rather throw in a 2nd rounder in 09 plus the one in 08 and get the Shockey deal done. If they want a starting player instead of the other pick, we could give em Bullocks. I believe if we were to get Shockey he would be such a weapon that we would be able to start.....say Meachum or Henderson opposite Colston and it really wouldnt be that big of a deal cause of his production (Shockeys that is) anyway just bored and wanted to give my 2 cents
