    I think this is BS

    You don't give Brees the money the Saints did and then reinvest that same amount of money in a rookie QB unless you've lost your sanity

    Is the Saints Management known for their sanity?

    Sounds like Detroit as well. Not as if NO wants an expensive backup.

    Well, the Saints do have the option not to pickup Drew's contract next year, so there is still that possibility that they could bring in Leinart and have him sit for a year or have him play if Brees doesnt comeback at 100%.

    I really don't see the Saints passing up Ferguson. But they don't call them the "Aints" for no reason.

    Their gonna take Leinart regardless. Brees contract is a joke. He'll be there for one year than get traded right before the bonus. Leinart starts and the Saints could get a good trade off. It's perfect. This was well planned because if Brees, says take them to the superbowl, then they keep his contract and trade off Leinart for an even better price. AND ANYONE WHO DOESN'T THINK THE SAINTS WILL DRAFT LEINART SOUNDS LIKE A RAIDER FAN. :icon_tease:

    I see the Saints takng D'Brickashaw Ferguson. Yes, they're showing some interest in Leinart. I think it a ruse to get Tennessee nervious enough to swap picks and give them another draft pick so they can get Leinart. New Orleans gets D'Brickashaw Ferguson, who they want anyway, plus and extra pick.

    If it isn't Ferguson it'll be AJ Hawk
    Not a question in my mind Leinart isn't on their board

    No, but they wouldn't mind if Tenessee thought Leinart was going to be their pick.
