    This added with the other guy the Saints got mean the Saints are probably tired of putting up or dealing with the Chargers for Edwards. Guess we gotta now look at the Panthers

    Odds that Edwards go to the Saints just shrank BIG time

    That's 2 LB in the last 24 hr for them , they landed a Cowboy for a 4th rounder. Still they are very shallow but it has to strengthen their hand.

    Throw some pom-poms on Donnie and make him dress with the referees.

    Fugg him.

    Two LB, that were probably backups for their original teams.

    I actually think this may help the Saints get Donnie.

    Once the Eagles sign Stallworth to an extension, that 4th round pick they gave to New Orleans becomes a 3rd rounder.

    The Saints then turn around and give that 3rd rounder they got from the Eagles in exchange for Donnie Edwards.

    The Saints will have then upgraded their LB corps by 3 extra in a span of a week.

    they've gotten now three linebackers through fa including scott fujita who will start. My major question is how many draft picks are teh Saints willing to spend to for the now improve their LB corps? this draft upcoming will have some great Lbs and that's long been a complaint of the Saints, do they want to kill hteir draft to upgrade their LBs for now?

    Well, Sean Payton's new defensive scheme requires 4 or 5 good LBs for rotational purposes.

    So, they are one or two LBs short of that mark.

    The Saints still have their original 2007 picks.

    They are using extra picks received in trading some of their backup players for other players that will be able to make an immediate impact on their defense.

    They gave up Michael Bennett to the Chiefs in exchange for a 4th rounder, who would have been relegated to a #3 RB status at NO, now with Deuce McAllister and Reggie Bush as the top two. They originally signed Bennett from Minnesota before they realized they had a shot at Reggie.

    That 4th rounder was given to Dallas for Shanle.

    Now, they will probably end up with a 3rd rounder from Philly in exchange for Stallworth. It seems that new HC Payton wasn't too high on Stallworth.

    On SaintsReport, they were talking about how Sean Payton was beginning to divest the team of all players that have links to Haslett. Stallworth, Brooks, Dwight Smith, Courtney Watson, etc. are that.

    If you've seen the Saints LB corp the past few preseason games, they couldn't tackle worth a crap. It was their secondary doing all the tackling.

    So they need LBs, and need them NOW. They can't wait for the 2007 draft like many teams. Not unless they want their 2006 season to be wasted.

    1. how many linebackers are you willing to grab?
    2. are you willing with some of htese LB to take on a one year player for a draft pick?
    3. Of those 1 yr LBs what do you think are the chances of resigning him?

    that they got a draft pick that sounds astonishingly like what we on the board have asked for, those three questions are fair ones to ask for a team that's still building for the future.

    Phuq Donnie Edwards.

    I'd rather let Tim Dobbins start in his place. Or Stephen Cooper.

    Those two guys know how to get into the backfield and blow up RBs or the play in general.

    Donnie just sits there like a steaming pile of crap until someone runs his direction.

    Wilhelm and Cooper are the most likely long term starters with Dobbins a stable good backup

    Edwards might just go because of hte new draft pick that was picked up but I'm more 40/60 no

    Maybe I'd take him seriously if he called himself Donald instead of Donnie.

    The two backers that the Aint's have traded for are just roster spots. Neither is really quality starting material. My first thought was that with the additional pick the Saints might now be more willing to up the ante to a third for Edwards.

    Adam Schefter just said on NFL Total Access that the pick the Saints acquired from the Eagles is a 4th that will become a third if he plays a certain amount and that they are trying at this very moment to sweeten the deal in order to acquire Edwards.

    He also said that the Bolts were actively talking with Kerry Collins who signed today with the Titans.

    I guess Collins decided to sign with the Titans because he might have a greater chance of playing.

    hmmmm that would imply that the Panthers made an offer, made a better offer then the Saints 4th and now AJ is letting the both of them make a deal. I take back saying anything bad about AJ, so far so good.

    They are feigning that injury because they don't want the greatest MLB to have ever played gone.

    The Saints should give up a 3rd rounder and consider it that they stole Donnie away from us.

    :yes:
