Half of that duo is here set Dunlap. Kristian garic Mets. Are set them down that it was going to be has obviously been by now probably. That ago. His phone is probably not stop ringing in blown up here politics is you know an appropriate disease knows that he's really getting asleep not but. Except on the campaign and now it hello New Orleans, Louisiana and the world our two of double coverage here on WW it is our saints. Free agency primer short for the start of NFL free agency he might hurt some news today maybe you'll yesterday over the weekend about signings. Reported sightings right. Sources are telling people at those contracts are getting done. Guys are getting re signed but technically they can't actually re sign or sign those contracts were signed with new teams until the new league year begins. Or I guess free agency period opens on 3 PM on Thursday's who got about another day and a half left before. Officially those deals done. But a couple of deals getting done today in the NFC south as it once they want yesterday to pass pressure's off the market Charles Johnson. The along time Carolina panther he signed a two year nine point five million dollar extension and William Gholston. A five year deal worth up to 36. And a half million we have Tampa Bay in those were two of the biggest names sent out fishing names in the free agent market those guys. Are now gone off the market so the saints haven't needed defensive India of course as is every team. The markets in the pool got a little bit shallower with those signings at this hour. At a breakdown the saints' biggest needs position by position. Real look at the sentiment and pass rusher they've got a needle linebacker obviously I think he wrote about it today on WW dot com. That actually linebacker. Is their biggest void on this team there is just an absolute. It's a action. Boy you'd have talents. Abu linebacker that you've got two guys there that I think could be contributors. Am really not much else to be optimistic about celebrate that position down got quarterback offensive line and safety. Safety now. The Gerris birds on I think there's a need there and there's a guy who was released today. I think the saints could be should be insisted. That's just coming up just a little bit later this hour plus nick underhill of the advocate he's gonna join us at 932. The talk about the saints are you a little more inside info and I don't he's gonna pass that onto you as free agency gets underway. Plus of course at 9/11 91692. In ivory tower. We will do little FaceBook live chat with the arsenal went well so if you want to interact with us on FaceBook during a break. We take questions are still alive Jennifer Dunn and it's critical release all you do is log on to FaceBook. And just like the W to deal page and a glossy pop up one legalize pretty cool. It's about here in just a implements meego to break. And one other reported. I guess targets for the saints today it came out we have heard this before it DJ walker. Sees. An ex offensive lineman big guy for the San Diego Chargers sees 65355. He played tackle. And then and San Diego but. If the saints expect streak to still be saw on the right side that offensive line up like they're looking at Flickr. To play guard here to play that right guard position that's for sure they have Anderson Pete I know that Bobby was on the yesterday that. He thinks what the saints might do is bullets eventually anyways and not this year but eventually kind of groom under speed that left side because he played on the left side. His whole career from high school on up so he really doesn't have the footwork necessary to play over on the right side. And moved to run Armstead to the right tackle position if Armstead proves that he can play over there seed every to tackle spots locked up. The two most important spots on the offensive line. And then you can move Flickr. Inside look at that putters and good players and a very solid player there is a kid that was born here in New Orleans grew up in Alabama. Played for the Crimson Tide sorry LSU fans but it was a good player there after ago roll tide. And went on to be drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the first rounds played their last five years but. But interest from the saints there. Other news today a couple of resigning as release saints tendering offers to restricted free agents Willie Snead and Brandon Coleman Coleman signed the standard. Released mean gonna take a weaker to. To see if his value increases at all before signing his standard Christie Garrett told us and our number one that he thinks Snead will indeed signed that tender. And is too will be under team control. Next couple years and the other big news today talking about it all week long about a week now right since. The Brandon Cox news first broke that teams or intranet him. Originally it was the titans and the Eagles showing interest but the patriots jumped on board and actually over the weekend the patriots made an offer for Brandon cooks. Of the 32. Pick they also wanted. I think a second round or third round pick back reports from the saints have been cooks and another pick for the patriots. Number 32 overall. The states that note now won hands. And thinking. Good good for limited in that's not nearly enough diaper brand and coach so we talked to Mike Reese yesterday as the patriots support for ESPN trying to get inside scoop for the patriots still interested. Bikers said no and he also said. I quote we don't have that quote we have that little clip from him. People double triple that up timid he could because yesterday he told us that the saints would be quote crazy absolutely crazy. To even think about trading. Brandon cooks so we dot it's done and patriots on interest and maybe they were disturbing net to help routes Sean Payton raised cokes diet for possible trade. Lo and behold today. Chris and Derrick comes up as a news his sources saying. That no indeed the patriots are still interested and they are in heavy talks right now with the New Orleans Saints to try to get Brandon cooks so what will that be will that be. Maybe that 32 overall pick and in the patriots sending back a second or third rounder would that be enough to entice Kooks away from the New Orleans Saints would beat. A kick in a player. Who knows but cooks on the chopping block and especially now. Cents. The saints have Reese signed a couple of wide receivers and Steven Coleman so you've got Mike Thomas he get Willie Snead you've got Brandon Coleman. At receiving corps looks like it's absolutely locked down for the foreseeable future for the New Orleans Saints. And if they have one position on this team that Sean Payton in that coaching staff and front office really give them credit too for drafting guys in developing guys that position. It's wide receiver he had this acid just sitting there you've got too much on you know have too much to LB got so much talent at the receiver position. Really too much talent to not all gonna get enough balls you could trade this asset and at some holes you have over on the defensive side. Meet personally. I. Want to see them hold on to coach I think he's that good player I think maybe he's not a true number one overall receiver. Like Mike Thomas is going to be like Mike Thomas to be an absolute star in the sleet visa already. But collects. In my view is RD far exceeded his value. At where he was picked number twenty in the NFL draft CU better yet. Much more than the number twenty overall pick in the NFL draft because you've still got two years of team control. Brandon cooks you let him walk away just for the number 32 overall pick or like the pitchers initially wanted you to give up not only coach spent another. For the number 32 overall pick the beads are still in my view but. Christian tells me you know the guys tell me that this deal likely going to get done done done deal maybe 80% 85% chance that cooks will not be. With the black and gold coming off going to be interest regarding have this free agency period is going to be wild and crazy throw coats and a mix and it's going to be on weaker to. Here for the New Orleans Saints and their fans were gonna step aside when we come back. Let's break it down all the positions of need this saints start with defensive end and linebacker. We will tell you why the team exactly means the sprout and ran past Russian linebackers ranked north good but what tiger is available. The saints can target these are names you're gonna wanna. Pay attention to because that's you're gonna hear about the next week in free agency right now though blog on the FaceBook if you're around it don't do it if you're drive and your round FaceBook may Anderson and home her work. Check out your phone to FaceBook live chat right now as we go to break where back about five minutes right here on WW. Dude dude dude dude dude didn't do. Due to Tim says this is gonna get second my head of elicited much. Music. It's in the sunshine and oh my zags only about ten now Europe but one. More. Like 1010. Minutes ago that we CC championship nobody. Goes somewhat announcement by me. Really cool FaceBook lights out we just had by the way thanks for everybody who's listening and positive that local questions tackle and felt free agency like the WWL. FaceBook page two join in those chats with us at fifteen after. Each power over on the text line at 87870. Attacks from 3322. Says I'd want Malcolm Butler. Who went one out about Christmas after that play made the Super Bowl against my Seahawks. But problem that is the patriots just extended if first round and her to Malcolm Butler he was a restricted free agents. So that means he will play four. The will he'll likely play I should statesmen and patriots what that means is if he signs with another team. That that team would have to give the patriots a first round pick from around Butler Malcolm Butler along with paying him. Whenever contracts they sign and the patriots have a chance to match that. So it's not gonna happen nobody gonna give up a first round pick from Malcolm Butler great player. Great number two number three quarterback he adds I mean I guess he blues played the number one spot on the times for a New England last couple years split. Hourly yankees first round type guy at least not that. A we're going to be joined by nick cutter hell here in just about five minutes or so but has promised. Let's get into the needs for this team and calibrated Dallas with the fans and in Germany noses of a need for this team the need for every NFL team are wrote a piece on this its online right now at WW alt dot com. On our saints free agency headquarters. Some of the guys I think they should look at it and or the pass rushers spot really when he talked about defenseman in the sleep now in less there an every down type player like. The I'm cam Jordan. Our JJ watt who plays in in that 34 scheme hybrid scheme over there in Houston really talk about pass rushers the pacers' I think as you after I. Talked to many ire about this this morning news last hour nick Perry nick carries my number one guy he's. An ex packer only 27 years old yet a great season in 26 team is on the fringes of the sack title with eleven. I concerns about his production Lee sack wise before his contract years he never exceeded four sacks. During his prior four year seasons in the league. Think that is the primary half truth from his previous to that team to Dom Capers it Clay Matthews there. It Julius Peppers there would Matthews moving back to the middle linebacker position and then Julius Peppers just production dropping off along with the injuries. This finally nick Perry's time that can be the featured guy in a defensive system for capers and awards eleven sacks. He's still a great run defender and I think he is the premier guy out there on the market. Right now I know some big names as guys like Adrian Peterson there's don't a hightower but if there's one guy. And I think if you are going to overpay for somebody paper this guy nick Perry he's out there some other names. Better going to I don't know if Harry will in wind appear I think there are some teams but to be able to pay him eight ton but he do not think the seats will be able to match. But some of the guys little more maybe mid level talent good value here at the defensive end position. A guide to ball cheered for the New England Patriots again only 27 years old kind of the definition of mid level value. Not a star. Lot of you probably haven't heard of him but he was really solid. But the patriots the last two seasons yet thirteen combined sacks. He was a contributor for the browns before that averaging just under six sacks you're basically getting six tax year expecting that plus very good run defense. His wealth from the defensive end position he can actually play every down if you ask him to easily 27 years old. Out Charles Johnson off the market and a down here but use resent a couple of hours ago about an hour before our show started. What about the markets where we heard about him probably not going to happen like this and on our FaceBook chat. Where once ago to eight what he considers the title contender maybe the saints will be that team we've seen back to back years were. Teams in the NFC south of losing record to me the Super Bowl the following year might be about where probably either going to go to the cowboys. Or maybe the Packers. They might need a pass rusher Perry's lead. Leaving as well. However Alex Okafor is a guy in my had heard of he's from the Arizona Cardinals only 26 years old not a big name probably never will be. But he's young he's gonna come cheap as well. And will be a very good situation all. Pass rusher but he's that has an outside shot at becoming an every down players well and he's long. Six foot four he could be disruptive on the interior you know Bruce Irvin is probably heard about him kind of the same mold. Now along leaned guy can rush on the outside disrupt things on the insanity can play if you asked into league play in an outside linebacker spot as well so there's some of the names. At the defense of imposition. It's not then in the enemy guys and after that it really drops off not in Sierra I would hope in Agassi the saints throw a lot of money unless it's nick Perry. At that position in free agency I think it's a position where they're going to have to build through the drafts. Maybe. Maybe they use cook is and coax his trade bait. For defensive end somewhere else. It's hard to imagine. In the state of the NFL right now and anybody anybody. Would be willing to part with a pass rusher when there in such high demand. Got nick underhill coming up next plus rhetoric to on the linebacker. And corner back spots who's available in free agency. We'll do that next plus open lines all show long we've got Ralph coming up here in just a couple of minutes right here on WW. A back double coverage Seth Dunlap fill in for. Chris and Garrett is on the pup list. Herniated disk. Now for the day Kristy can be back tomorrow. Tickets and ads hopefully is passed and I you know with free agency that is bones probably blow up right now Christians bodies are friends nick under deal. From the New Orleans advocate covers the saints for the advocate at nick underscore underhill. On Twitter joins us now nick. Welcome glad to see your healthy and radio for free agency this year. So I guess actors should strive with them early on fire. That's. It's. A lot of news though to start with today let's start with the B actual on paper. Offers in I guess one signing that we have today that's Willie steam Brandon Coleman tenders going out. To boldly and get a good tweet earlier today again at nick underscore underhill. On Twitter you said. Quote not every player has to be O'Dell Beckham to have a positive impact on games great week because that's exactly what these guys are I think they have many critical on the slash year. He was more productive than I think a lot of saints fans expected and could be in their plans going forward so. Good we expected this split the gum seats in the stunt. Yeah I think he's some news was obviously in operators very important via. And yet practiced Andrea that one or more on her. Which can be beneficial for the saint century is an encrypted it signed. You know yet at least two more years of can control. He might actually get a better deal news you know he would be like giving out maybe some future financial gains some security now so. They envision him being you know another four years that would make you that. In you know they don't demand a better. Number called I mean maybe even members factory. If you know how it impacted. Our number torture really help around. Not your. Record it is like tiger lives. Percent to about. Them they don't the is has bought on the perimeter running game and a lot of the speaker. You know that certainly actual acres and actually particularly like he's doing it. 650000. Dollars. If you make the team great. If not people here make someone be out meaning that there is he. No I outlook I. I am a guy who's actually higher on Brandon Coleman and and rallies going to be a star he will be the number one guy effort but I think he's good role player and takes those. Those long guys those long wide receiver sometimes a little longer to develop especially in in Sean Payton's system. Ought to guys have taken that times I don't know I G I like the Coleman's dining you sit you did to us. On the got to ask you about Brandon cooks it's the big news now it's every word Christian Garrett said he was absolutely inning. Exploded on Twitter but people asking about the silverware. Where do you stand where do you stand on this just it's just get out a way up front do you think the station trade this guy and what do you think. If they do they need to get in return. Popular spot on. The complicated though described there I think. I think that things are better which have opera obviously music players don't think he's Smart and deep threat. You know that I think you know underneath united at least these are great after the catch. You know you not Google and so you would expect from the B that is for tree trees the he's got more restrict our guys in. He's got a principal technical problem or worse need it you know department Geiger maybe they somebody. Intermediate route Michael promises better he's obviously great it is that the it I think he's. You're underneath and I think he's greatly. But I think the saints could take him out and be okay if you get another guy that can. A straight line be happy with it picked prop up with the trucks that. They he's not as good as script that that it that the did not directly you know that though some other things. So I think and it still be good productive without an if you get somebody on the defense. That's great. Having said that. You'd like to elaborate on defense Yankee catcher for your arms if you can't in U happy that there's no so in Asia site. Then I think maybe you copy you know you get better on the senate you know trying to. Greg you're keeping it isn't actually use. You blocks and you don't. You're landlocked I think your are a lot lockstep there net I think you'd split is whenever I think. The because this team develops wide receiver so well not only be coaching staff of the draft the positions so well I think you've you have. An extra pass it like you have with coach if the prices threaten if they're getting. Right value in return don't see why. You wouldn't trade him but. I'm really landed in by on that says that even just the 32 I think would not be enough where do you but he. Well I mean that this partner Billy intensity. How shoppers which would be fourteen any team Italy department 32 that any time you news. But it does Matt Doherty real doctors I think it's been met. If you quarterbacks or haven't yet about here represented by and maybe cook it and now the part about 32 pick which account that we are these other rockers like why aren't even talked about it this choppy party Bobo checked so. If you would be cynical kind of weird how that he that are out there repeat these are real where are probably. Break away arch that I think it again and trade and our shoppers. Check out fairly popular immigrant situation. You know it it'll be in this field you know I don't know I would do about. The carpet at the fourteenth peck on the collective four I mean but there's other guys you know one or turn it on the shot Jackson burst into effect. So what about the people that. Arctic underhill at nick underscore under a deal. On Twitter covers the New Orleans Saints for the advocate so let's let's turn to free agency here. Question is do you think the saints will be players this year and the reason I asked that is because. We see so many pieces. In the advocate received in the lock policy from our guys here deleted all come explaining to fans why. The saints are players every single year and expect the saints to make a splash in free agency the problem I see this year and yes states have about 45 million person says again it's been about twenty million that. In free agency the Cleveland Browns have a 105 million dollars in Connecticut if the 49ers 98 million jaguar 74 million the list goes on and on. Are the saints really going to be players this year. Yeah I think so we'll try to be and basically live far from players and I think the I think that'll pass searchers strap but now like it is Carter got his routine as a sense so far our product. So I mean. There is a big big guys that figure look at that. 34 weeks ago is the way of market JP eight years old anger and all the guys are so. I don't know about big fan of going around back and pot Bosnia. You know the big names here overpay and it. He's targeting it overpaid. Yeah the only itself out searchers land and you use the guy if you're gonna. You know he's gonna go or be decent but for the moneys relegated to you'd collector of battle from you know fans and they're going to be happy. But he's not a Apple's back up higher so. I'm I'll court waiting lepers slave meg getting your role players. Think you know now it's going to be carpet could be registered between what they do. In the guy that would maybe be the true difference makers like as pass rusher guns. Come up. Yeah and I agree Agassi answer the question about the big names are mid level value I think it's got a mean mid level value so that's not defensive end. What are their positions are we look at. He's a middle linebacker I think you're OK with programs have been probably. Like operators use rocket has more like special teams or players and you know third given who he is what they expect though it is job I think they are that are. Quarterback obviously. The if they want it obviously he epic keeper restrict the package I think that you get other guys so broken by Puerto box. I don't know maybe maybe we sent our record he can't trust speller either. Oh yeah I wrote about that today nick insisted. Even more than passionate issue to me there's a void of talent at linebacker other than you know Roberts and I guess if you think car's going to be. I'm healthy enough to contribute the season it's just a little scary at that position right now. I agree that I think it he comes back a couple of charities of the fact that maybe in the third down package. It just more than talent linebacker I think that lack key speaker I think he got a couple speedy guys. I would be. So fastest of the figured but he also slower he has the speed they. You you need more guys in the back group so they market you know manages them. You know after the fire brokered 78 yards your country because not that I think is bigger than you take all of the world that. I think every query that he had no matter last year. At least you know in terms of on assignment in particular nature. You know they think he's operated a lot of spots there are a lot of guys that are outside they elect him Jordan Karl broke. And Bob felt like look at these days you know focus that ethnic every other position could use upgrade our mentality is healthy he's great it is out. So when this is all over neck. Do you think the saints fans going to be happy with how free agency. I think the debt free agency. Period of the ones are fans are overwhelmed thinking that they want me gotten it to you don't think they went and got the usually doll. He'd like New England that they. Quiet signings are players but discovered that that does and have the right vision for a though that the team that they usually do a lot better so. You know it. I don't know I mean you know what I pampered and very happy with that don't work out our car Spiller are happy that don't work out so. Doesn't really matter what you feel violently feel you know around Thanksgiving you're younger it's about. Great stuff nick underhill at nick under nick underscore. Under oath on Twitter comes Orleans saints. Or the New Orleans advocate rates up man and and stayed busy I didn't have fumbled this next couple weeks it's always my favorite times of the season. I appreciate it using your voice your radio voice partners. A they salvage journalism though maybe is listened to my get a text them are right nick under real good stuff there were I'm sure we'll check back to him a lot. During this free agency period over the next couple of weeks we'll take a break when we come back taking your calls open lines rest of the hour we've got. Ralph coming up that means are gonna kick off our free agents see jeopardy. In a play that with MC it's easy. Behind the last year phone lines wide open call us right now 504260. 1870. Final 4260 point 78 in Austin Texas State 7870 hit me up on Twitter. That set them. It's a feedback on Twitter. And on the tech site at age 7870. No what is this a 516. Amassed a funny Anthony thing Anthony is a talent forget that he quote didn't read defenses. Kid's got skills are spotted back to a minister at a moderate to give up on Anthony. I think. Gotta admit he's been a disappointment so far in a 516 as a totally disagree his rookie season is in the team record of delight me on the island. Mr. exact record talking about but I'm not singer on some light meat that was not pure luck last year and curb Witt is still buzzing from 09. From the 1798. Saint keep cooks saints are worse in the NFL letting good players get away that part. I think they've had some pretty darn good free agency signings under a woman say what you want about lewis' drafts. And maybe their ability to develop defensive talent in free agency I think the record kind of shows at least if you take his overall in your interview throughout the Drew Brees. Signing which is probably the best and an a Lister I still think. You'd have to give Mickey Loomis. You know be a B plus in free agency over those years all right we're gonna of the phone lines now wide open. 50426018750426018. Stamina to play a little. Free agency jeopardy and then take your questions as well and first up tick off year. Ralph a cellphone want to talk about the extra what's up Ralph. We're eating but I think teasing out cooks to move up and draft a lot of the Chicago Bears need to you know with the I would grind it. Using took to move up in the draft I think that's going to I think that's gonna happen I think if that trade. Pat I think if they trade collects I think that they're going to either. Gets an upper half of the draft on talk in pick. At 1618. Or better or. The get a package that so whatever to begin with the pick the they have to move up to maybe five top fives and I get up to one to get Garrett. But I think. You know I think your enemy uses for pets is what they wanna like there's only there's defensive talent out there are gonna get in return for ramming coats. Beating Garrett goes there one you'll be used like around three Allah banners. We know right now right now I think as the ones I think with the comment he just had was is exceptional. I think you're looking at the prohibitive favorite to go number one miles here I'd be shocked if that doesn't happen now some things could happen maybe teamed it's really time one of these quarterbacks.
