Three year deal on condition he gets a pronounceable name.

If the Saints do not get off their duff and start signing some good defensive players then they will be lucky to be #2 in their division to the Falcons. Goody Goodell did not help the situation by taking away the 2nd round draft choice due to his perceived bounty scandal (Have the Saints not suffered enough?).
Drew Brees got his big contract and now the Saints are cash strapped so they have to try for bargains. Like John Arbuckle said "You get what you pay for" Not always true in football BUT. Heck, Saints dump some of those poor defensive lineman and sign anyone with any similance of talent. May find a diamond in the rough. Can't be any worse than what you have.
Not a Falcon fan so really hate to see them loading up on talent while Saints are basically staying put.

If you leave out losing the second round draft you could be describing the Ravens.

Or a couple others, as well. I don't remember a post-season in which there seemed to be so much upheaval on so many teams.

Last time I looked every player on the Saints roster was either drafted or signed through FA by them. It is the team they built themselves, no one forced any players on them. If they are not good enough, then they can only blame themselves.

Salary cap restrictions are freeing up a lot of players who would not otherwise be available.

100% correct. The players signed off on it, now many viable vets are unemployed.

A FA with Dolphins not in the mix?
