af 11. januar 2015Free agency4 Kommentarer

NFLs free agency begynder officielt tirsdag den 10. marts klokken 21:00 dansk tid. NFL holdene må allerede fra den 7. marts kontakte de spillere, som holdet måtte være interesserede i.

Mark Ingram, Eric Frampton

Mark Ingram blev signet før free agency startede og er igen at finde i black and gold.

Du vil her kunne følge, hvilke Saints spillere der skriver kontrakt med Saints eller et af de andre hold i ligaen. Ligeledes vil du kunne følge, hvem Saints har hentet fra de andre klubber.

Franchise tag skal være placeret inden mandag den 2. marts klokken 22:00, hvis klubben ønsker at benytte dette.

Tallet i parentes er spillerens 2014 snapcount. Bagefter interesserede klubber.

Unrestricted free agents
En spiller som er helt fri til at skrive kontrakt med andre klubber uden Saints kan gøre noget.

Restricted free agents
En spiller er RFA, som regel et år før spilleren bliver UFA. Der er visse begrænsinger, spillerne er frie til at forhandle med andre klubber. Saints kan dog vælge at matche kontrakten, ellers vil Saints blive kompenseret med draft picks.

    Ikke helt klar over om Hightower er hentet som mulig “3-down RB” ?
    Umiddelbart synes det som om Saints tror på en fremtid uden Ingram….
    – min søn tror San Diego bliver Ingrams nye klub 🙂
    Vi er glade for Ingram – og så ham gerne som Saints næste år – men vi har Pierre, Robinson og Cadet

    Must-need-want …… fra Sean Payton (NFL.com)

    During the Mickey Loomis-Sean Payton regime, the New Orleans Saints have always broken their offseason wish list into categories of “wants,” “needs” and “musts.”

    This year, Payton said, the Saints have two or three “musts.”

    “I think one’s a corner. I think another position is an interior offensive lineman. And potentially a pass-rusher,” Payton told Pro Football Talk while at the scouting combine in Indianapolis. “And look, those are invaluable positions to every team every year. …

    “We have to check off the musts, be it through free agency or the draft.”

    It’s hard to argue with Payton’s ranking. When I did my own breakdown of the Saints’ offseason needs last month, I had cornerback No. 1, outside linebacker No. 2 and guard/center No. 3.

    Of that group, I think cornerback is the one that “must” be addressed in free agency — both because the Saints need a proven starter they can rely on across from Keenan Lewis, and because the crop of available candidates appears much stronger in free agency than the draft.

    Payton and former Saints player personnel director Ryan Pace both talked this week about the value of weighing the depth of certain positions in free agency vs. the draft. The Saints can’t count on finding a starting-caliber corner with the 13th pick in the draft. Only Michigan State’s Trae Waynes has been rated that high by most draft analysts so far. Other corners may work their way up in Round 1, but they come with question marks.

    Meanwhile, the list of potential free-agent cornerbacks is loaded (albeit an expensive menu). At the top is Brandon Flowers, Byron Maxwell, Kareem Jackson, Antonio Cromartie, Tramon Williams and possibly Darrelle Revis. The next tier includes guys with experience and potential like Perrish Cox, Chris Culliver, Tarell Brown, Darius Butler and Buster Skrine. And there are some experienced veterans who could help bring leadership, such as Rashean Mathis, Ike Taylor, Charles Tillman, Terence Newman and Carlos Rogers.

    As for the second “must” that Payton mentioned, the Saints clearly need to get younger throughout the interior offensive line, where all three starters from last year are in their 30s (guards Jahri Evans and Ben Grubbs and center Jonathan Goodwin). But I’m very curious to find out exactly how the Saints plan to address those positions.

    Will they consider replacing either Evans or Grubbs because of their expensive contracts? Are they looking for a new starting center to replace free agent Goodwin and compete with young backup Tim Lelito? Or are they just looking for depth throughout the interior line — especially in the draft — with an eye toward replacing Evans and Grubbs in the future?

    Jeg er meget enig i at Saints har mangler på CB/DE/OLB… og Guard. Jeg tror at Saints kigger på begge positioner(ja – de kigger på alle positioner) under combine, og alt efter hvad de finder i free agency. Jeg gætter på at Saints finder en cornerback i free agency og en olb/de i første runde af draften. Det tænker jeg ville give mening.
