Deke Bellavia Christian and others tell me that it's gonna make a splash like these it is this is not a team that likes to sit back. And completely. Target the mid level guys that's not how they worked in pre aids in the trade market. In the past that may change. Maybe Mickey Loomis and shot in the front office that had a change of heart and tried differently this season thanks. I think on Alex this and base.

Pretty easy win over and defensive in a pass rusher every team needs after mr. right that's no surprise. All 32 teams even the defending Super Bowl champion England patriots they need to pass the falcons even though they had some good pass restore the second part of the season. It losing Dwight Freeney Gergen any pressure issues so there's one position in this league you're gonna have to overpay for. It's that incident in the past us in position that's why. I kinda think I would like at least deceive the saints target other positions with twenty million dollars of that plan to spin I think linebacker. Yet really good value at that position in the secondary you've got great value quarterback in safety position and by the way. That safety class the free agent class this year safeties got a little bit deeper. Stance on this stage of the San Francisco 49ers to a great run stopping safety in pass coverage as well. Was released today by the 49ers so he's there and age. But the veteran safeties made impacts on a couple of different franchises over the last decade. It's available and with the release of jitters bird by the State's. Saints maybe in the market for SE. Now the position they're going to be looking at offensive line.

A new article from person Gary Neal and offered the 32 overall pick in round one. The saints turned it down so we kind of saw we talked to Mike Reese yesterday espn.com. Patriots beat reporter.

It's a sign up right now I can log on to WW dot com click that saints button it's right there. Or you can sign up for our breaking news you can text sports to 87870. We can look for these live chats on FaceBook we've been promoting and you can follow us on Twitter apps WW LAM at them and again I'm pat stepped on the on what a couple of text coming on the text line and this is kind of my thoughts on this one. From a 1774. Saying number 32 for coach is not a good deal period that is the second round pick if we get more keep him I agree. It's got to be at least amid first rounder in my view and a lot of people disagree with me. Jeff Duncan great columnist for the Millen out comet has Picayune he was on yesterday. He said he would take a second rounder. Amid round pick for Brenda Texas he wants to get value now weather is still value for these guys he thinks that wide receivers in the system are replacing what does agree with them. While people agree with him a lot of people agree to me it's commission to see what the saints' front office thinks. And if they get a deal done here but signs are pointing to the they will get a deal done with somebody in the next week or soul. Also from 4418 on the tech sign at age 7870. I really hope the saints don't trade cuts what are they thinking why would they trade a very good player for an unproven drafts. Lot of that coming in on my Twitter in boxes well itself down lap saying why you gonna treat a proven commodity for an unproven on it that's the nature of the NFL. And if they do get value for rent and tootsie if they gets that mid first round pick something at higher value and where they picked him at number twenty I think. I think that's a good deal for them they still have two years of team control on Brandon cooks blot. Because we just told to be re signed released need they re signed Brandon Coleman yak Coleman hasn't lived up to expectations but he was better last year. And there's still potential there plus we know this team can develop wide receivers so if you're going to trade assets and you're gonna trade value you have right now on this team. Traded from the wide receiver spot to shore up other areas of need. And because at the positions of need defensively which is where most of the leaders on this team at linebacker at defensive end not a lot out at least it's going to be. Kind of a mid level value they're not have to overpay for a free agency the top guys and read Z the nick carries the doctor height towers. Those guys you have to overpay for it you want those guys. So utility that's. Why not trade for draft picks try to draft your way back and do little to both ways I understand but I do see. Even though I'm not on board of trading Brent cuts I still think you should keep him I do see the arguments as to why you trade him now. Try to get those picks try to get those players. Short grainy and it short on the defensive side ride it out with her offensive weapons which are the Tip O'Neill and I'll still number one ranked offense in the NFL last season. That's not going anywhere anytime soon with or without Brandon cuts are coming up next after the break we're gonna take a little look at the national scene. We're going to talk to Vinny higher. NFL columnist for sporting news.com. We're gonna take a look at the recent signings today some news in the NFC south ball the bucks. And Carolina Panthers last point four hours resigning some players taking them off the market pull you know who. And bully you know the rest of the lay of the land with a video. Next on double coverage here on WW. Christian out today Seth Dunlap in immense set Dunlap. On to whatever partner will be back tomorrow hopefully. Here as we roll on through free agency disparity gets started about 48 hours of weightlessness blows about forty hours away. The official start of free agency going to be very fun. Lots of stuff coming in on the tax landed 87870. Most of the comments today enter seeing. But they wanna keep Brandon Cox a member on the air with Christian the last couple times and their way around a lot of guys wanting to woods went. Cooks go in a trade and from a lot of value. We heard from our fans. On the tech's final they would call and also today another. Another Tex coming in here. Saying that's. He will have another thousand yard season next year we could get even more next off season keep cooks that you wanted to take that route because we. Night not want to pay him being money. It's on the text line and. 87870. But now we're to shift our focus nationally. A little bits and Julius is FL columnist for sporting news.com. Vinny. Iron and Vinny thanks for joining us man I know it's a really busy week Korea. A couple minutes out to join us we wanna get a national like it's a national scene set premier. And I guess we'll start here in the NFL south a couple of deals the past 24 hours worse though. Offered pass rusher Charles Johnson two year deal nine point by know with the Panthers William Gholston bide your deal. 36 and a half million could be worth up to that post thirteen and half guaranteed for the Buccaneers. Expect those deals get done and how does that change the landscape for pass rusher right now on the market. Well right now the landscape structures it is pretty kid. Structured in port street looking or pure defensive end O. I think you look at what happened early opening group. Network two. Pretty quickly it is in Europe call these commercial forestry. Giant followed super opened it can be so these are structures. When these teams happen to her will on the range they're gonna make things happen to keep in Utah with the change there expert. Even though the report to warriors so you'd partner in the electrical lead to carry out there that Green Day. There's maybe the most active as archer bill O Bogut and it's that's a pretty quickly in the is that if they get the bargain. Some rookies and bigger deal with each player's. They're gonna keep them as possible. Let's talk about Perry for a little bit because I'm really intrigued by him at the saints are gonna overspend on somebody I said in the previous segment they should overspent on nick carries the guys at 47 years old. That is most productive season last year with eleven sacks but there's concerns about production and on contract year. What do you think Perry's gonna fetch on the open market and do you think there's a possible fit here with north. I think you can definitely rates of ten million now just because. Are there all. That now positions. Guys that are that we'll 46 point seven. Those are the most attractive creator. Regardless of what it is structure you know very strong and reduced what that's actually a tool that are here your motivation their book contract but I think. The Packers all the unions that central to kind of put all other last season when they needed it so I like the way that he played hurt there and injuries they're still pretty effective so. I think he's been beaten up pretty quickly if it was a lot of change interest is that because. He is pretty hurtful I know what can split up practically all that so. Speaking at the attitude out there in Atlanta as the team prepared to use their card at their legal. Well speaking of teams are going to be it shouldn't and most of those teams are going to have an exorbitant amount of cap space a lot more in the saint says it's about twenty million. A giver take teams a lot more than that out there how does. That the caps resolve these teams have because of the cap increase this year and really Alaska please tell us a gonna affect the market are we gonna seek release sitting here a week from today looking at these contracts that guys are getting going scratch our heads going what in the world. Are they paying these guys that much is gonna happen. Yes you could start with him as a good example that the ever China to spend money but in the years. They have one of their guys like there might get they. The contract the country compared to 1590. Either of these starter so that's greater than there and that. Saying you're you're going to Tampa Bay and here DeSean Jackson who. Warm all count each trying to drive a Chrysler we try to couple teams that he was. Interest it and through in all that are about in your equipment and double and a nation he makes a lot of sense there is deep threat. Two what Mike Spann and so I think you could argue that the reason or the other thirty Italy BP that you've been here 200 billion dollars and you look at these like receivers. Ever he seems so long ones but they're so expensive ground out front represent the close to succeed or. It's just talking to Vinny ire NFL columnist for sporting news.com. But what about some of the older big name free agents might be past their prime but certainly going to draw interest guys like Adrian Peterson Brandon Marshall. The Marcus where what's their market. Couldn't it has to be. And so that game the patriots to win of the country don't knock it again. The deal to play for another team anyway so it's going to be record in the current political all. Would you go to markets where life and just packed with a couple of different things there grant Marshall eager that there would be or their work in order stricter cruiser was. Cut the other. You're saying that the giants re record the swap swap New York is back at you. The giants who the prudence so evocative. Being better than what happened what mattered. Would ignorant Peterson and Jamal throw the most interest thinking you brokered there. Patriot where Peterson I can't see it happening but it makes a lot of sense relieved to hear what they need leaked out part back in the Peterson consultant appointed. I think Richard retired war and law Charles. They're not there in position to maybe you're running back they want would ever doubt cook in the draft. I think Charles can work very well in the of the system that they're tropic. I had a week from today wants this initial. Adele luge signings the big names come off toward what is going to be the biggest headlines coming out that first. I I think you'd you'd beat the raiders. Could something bigger and older even more strident and that's ready to be even more aggressive or archer moves great. Britain can be a role now that the team that. Still ample cap space and other team right cropped beard and pepper as though. You've pretty much truth there in the action every single quarter of rookie in the could be trade. I think scheme that a lot of money. 20 culture in Dublin and her come out firing so a lot of folk from what are you up there. Do you think let's end this is because they have so much cap space threats like those teams their mandated by the CB eight to spend all this money so big have to spend it right. Definitely I mean that you look at that Cleveland sitting on Google my hundred billion dollars it. You have to put together like the bottom and something become much so that Britain could ground. It bury people have been more stockpiling picks not have gone after the big change but Specter changed now wicket. Rick I think you have to do some spending your resolve with a drive greater last year you can make it work well thrown. The right amount of money people of the problems teens immediately go look at year. Our eye Vinny Vinny ire on Twitter ebony iron and it'll columnist for sporting news.com.
