  1. Hill is number 2 per a couple of articles I have seen but will have the same role. The article below quotes Payton that he will still be a flex player/QB and be the number 2 on the depth chart. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/03/25/taysom-hill-will-have-same-role-while-serving-as-no-2-qb/ Taysom Hill will have same role as No. 2 QB Posted by Charean Williams on March 25, 2020, 7:41 PM EDT Taysom Hill played 241 offensive snaps last season, most of them at positions other than quarterback in the Saints offense. He will continue in that role this season, Sean Payton said Wednesday, but Hill will add another duty. Hill also will serve as the Saints’ backup quarterback behind Drew Brees. “Taysom has earned this opportunity to be our [No.] 2,” Payton said on WWL Radio, via Jeff Duncan of TheAthletic.com, “but he also has earned the opportunity to play and help us win football game as a one. What I mean by that, whether you call him a receiver, a tight end, a specialist [or] also a quarterback, he’s going to play. He’s too good a football player. He’s one of our better football players.” When Brees missed five games last season, it was Teddy Bridgewater, not Hill, who started at quarterback. Bridgewater, though, has departed for Carolina with his signing becoming official Wednesday. Payton said the Saints still need to sign another quarterback who will be active on game day. That will provide the Saints with insurance in case both Brees and Hill are injured in the same game. The Saints had all three quarterbacks active for most of last season aside from when Brees was out of the lineup with his injury. “You need a third quarterback dressed on the sidelines,” Payton said. “Because on any given play, Taysom could come over to the sideline and his right thumb or finger could be pointing east and west, and if that happens, you don’t have a backup quarterback. But I would say coming into the season, he’s going to be our second-string quarterback and obviously going to play a number of snaps, not only at quarterback but a number of positions.”
  2. I was always curious how good he could have been here with an entire offseason and playbook built for him and his skill set. Curious if they will give him that in Carolina. Hoping at the very least he stays healthy. I also feel going to Tampa was a mistake on Brady's part. They have had a bad o line for a long time. Not to mention O line help has never been their or Arians' focal point.
  3. I told the owner of my company about the lions extending the requirement, and they allowed him to push the first half of payment until April. You may try calling.
  4. I like these signings. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/03/20/saints-agree-to-one-year-deals-with-justin-hardee-michael-burton/ Saints agree to one-year deals with Justin Hardee, Michael Burton Posted by Charean Williams on March 20, 2020, 3:35 PM EDT The Saints have agreed to one-year deals with cornerback Justin Hardee and fullback Michael Burton, Mike Triplett of ESPN reports. The Saints declined to tender Hardee as a restricted free agent. Hardee, 26, has spent the past three seasons in New Orleans. He is a core special teams player, having played 114 defensive snaps and 890 on special teams in his career. Hardee entered the league as an undrafted free agent receiver with the Texans in 2017. The Saints converted him to cornerback when he signed to their practice squad on Sept. 7, 2017. He has 39 career tackles, one interception and two pass breakups. Burton, 28, played last season with Washington. He saw action on 68 offensive plays and 177 on special teams. The Lions drafted Burton in the fifth round in 2015. He spent two seasons there and two in Chicago. In his five-year career, Burton has 17 touches for 64 yards and a score. Share this:
  5. Ehhh https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/03/20/saints-re-sign-andrus-peat-to-five-year-contract/ Saints re-sign Andrus Peat to five-year contract Posted by Josh Alper on March 20, 2020, 1:01 PM EDT Andrus Peat got a chance to see what the open market had to offer and has decided to return to the Saints. The Saints announced that Peat has agreed to a five-year deal to remain in New Orleans. They did not announce any financial terms, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that it is worth up to $57.5 million with $33 million guaranteed. Peat, who was No. 80 on PFT’s list of the top free agents, has seen time all over the offensive line since joining the team as a first-round pick in 2015, but has settled in at left guard. He missed time with a broken arm last season, but returned for Week 17 and the team’s playoff loss to the Vikings. Peat’s return ensures that the Saints will bring back their entire starting offensive line from last season.
  6. Yeah, Jackrabbit is not going anywhere supposedly. Question is do we extend Jackrabbit to save cap money? Also curious to see if we retain PJ or anyone else like Peat. I thought Apple was gone. He underwhelmed last year IMO.
  7. Freeing up a bunch of cap space, curious who we go after. Hope it wasn't all for MJ.
  8. He is a better rusher than Vic Beasley was, but honestly, he has underperformed since he has been in the league. He still has a great first step.
  9. Rumor is it is a 4 year deal at $32 mill. That's a lot of money for an older vet. I like the leadership, just not sure he has 4 years left.
  10. Not sure this is a great move honestly. But if the deal is right I am for it. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/03/18/saints-bringing-back-malcolm-jenkins/ Saints bringing back Malcolm Jenkins Posted by Darin Gantt on March 18, 2020, 12:50 PM EDT The Saints are correcting a previous mistake. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Saints are close to a deal to sign safety Malcolm Jenkins. The former Saints first-rounder was just released by the Eagles, and gives the Saints a chance to fix a long-standing issue. They drafted him in the first round in 2009, but left in free agency in 2014. The Saints let him go so they could sign Jairus Byrd to a six-year, $56 million contract, which didn’t turn out to be a wise move. Since then, Saints coach Sean Payton has expressed regret about not hanging onto Jenkins, and had a chance to trade for him. The Eagles offered Jenkins back in a proposed deal for wide receiver Brandin Cooks in 2017, before Cooks was sent to the Patriots. Bringing the 32-year-old Jenkins back should help lend some stability to their secondary, and with Tom Brady about to move into their neighborhood, that can only help.
  11. Brosi, I am with you I feel they don't care. I get the sinking feeling we will have a national quarantine in the next week or two. Strictly because Gen Z and Millenials don't care about not going in public. Can you imagine what this country would look like if we lost all the baby boomers in the next 6 months? I know it's extreme to think they would all die, but even if we lost 25-50% it would change the complexion of this country dramatically. On a similar note one of the largest employers in the area I live in Navy Federal Credit Union. Their campus for their corporate office and their call center are all here. They had an employee at work on Saturday who today had a presumptive positive test. They may have to shut down the entire location and have 8,200 employees. I really feel the government is going to be forced to shut it all done.
  12. I'm ok with this loss. He is a great run defender, but there is a reason when all LBers were healthy he didn't play in nickel. I am curious about who we intend to pursue in replacement. Also curious if we redo Alonso, P-Rob, and Jenkins deals
  13. Devonte Freeman being cut too, but that one I understand. Please do not pursue Saints. Please no. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001106333/article/falcons-releasing-rb-devonta-freeman-two-others Falcons releasing RB Devonta Freeman, two others Devonta Freeman's five year extension won't make it to year three. A little over a month after NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the Falcons were considering parting ways with Freeman, Atlanta did just that Monday, releasing the running back, Rapoport reported. The move comes on a day in which Atlanta also released cornerback Desmond Trufant, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported, and offensive lineman Ty Sambrailo, as the team announced. The combination of cuts saves the cap space-strapped Falcons $11.6 million in 2020. Freeman's contract was made for a parting of ways after the first two of its five total seasons, with Freeman's cap hit rising and his dead cap hit falling in 2020. Freeman's production fell dramatically to 3.6 yards per carry and just two touchdowns in 2019, a season after he was only able to play in two games, further expediting his release. He'll enter a promising free-agent class at the position, but at 28 years old can't command nearly the amount of money he did when he signed his five-year extension back in 2017.
  14. HOLY CRAP! I didn't realize you could carry it for 37 days. The economic dip has just started then.
