I completely agree, Larry.

 

The New Orleans Saints players need to step to the plate and do what plenty of other teams are doing and restructure to help with the salary cap. Winning a Super Bowl is much more than an individual effort, it requires a team. Selfishness and money hounding won't get you anywhere this age. It's good to see Evans and Smith leading by example.

 

Thanks for your comment. Who Dat.

I personally believe he is Colston would be No. 2. Obviously Jimmy Graham is the biggest target we have, especially in the red zone. Colston's size and physical play make him the second biggest target on our offense. I think it's a no brainer that we will do our best to keep him along with Robert Meachem. I also have faith that both of these receivers will be back with the Saints next year. I can't really count Sproles as a big receiving target due to all his carries being screens (which is basically like a more efficient running play for the Saints) even though he did finish third on the team in passing yards with 710. Sproles lead the team in rushing, averaging 6.9 yards a carry, so he obviously is a key target for us.

 

But as far as "receivers" Colston had 1,143 receiving yards. If you take out Sproles, the next best was Lance Moore at 627. Colston had 19 less receptions than Graham and only 3 less touchdowns, though they averaged the same amount of yards per game.

 

I think we can all agree it's in the Saints best interest to have Colston return.

I agree that Porter will likely get offered a bigger contract and judging by the statistics, it's best to let him walk.

Greer is a good man to man cornerback and he rarely gave up a big play. I think at $6 million the price is great. Asante Samuel was in the top 10 in the NFL this year and he is making $8 million. So he is being paid like a good cornerback, not a great one, based on some of the salary in the top 10. For that reason, I think Greer won't be asked to restructure. But, I wouldn't put it past the Saints to try. If he declines, I don't believe it will effect him.

Jabari Greer is getting I think $6 million in 2012. He was thrown at 121 times, most in the league, and they completed 67 passes against him. The only cornerback better in our division may be Grimes, but overall, I think Greer is worth the money. I can't see them cutting our top cornerback, considering Tracy Porter will likely be leaving. Porter had the 3rd worst completion percentage when thrown at, with 71.2% of passes completed when thrown at him. He was thrown at 73 times for 52 completions. Robinson is a good fit though.. Opponents QB rating when throwing against him was 59.3, 7th best in the NFL. I can't see Greer being cut, but maybe asked to restructure his deal.

@FebruaryJones It's alright. No problem. Word has it D'qwell Jackson is getting tagged by the Browns for sure and he wants to remain in Cleveland. We will have to see where that story developed. I'll try to not miss anything next time (at least it was only one word) no offense was taken by your criticism. I appreciated you even taking the time to read.

@FebruaryJones I fixed it. It must have been looked over when it was submitted to the Editor. Sorry.
