Sample of 5 good Sunday morning welcome into. Another edition of it's just sports and immediately. And W well dot com crushing Erica with it till 1234. LSU in Georgia late game three of their baseball's street there at Caesars LSU dominated the bulldogs and both match at 521 victory yesterday 129 victory. That on Friday here post it would. Tom itself it will run by. They're fourth start at thirty some odd innings scoreless. Ball and you run the we with a total thirty talking saints in three C and in particular Malcolm Butler. He was in town on Thursday Wednesday and that with a saint on there. He left the visit without a contract. And something a little alarm but all hope that help you make sense. And it's simple. This this long process is going to be hard process in down on boats laden parts is typical for free agent he's restricted for so there's some. There's some things with that. First sign his tender mysteries tender. Openly. Hate the way for treatment happen is that besides it tendon in that the patriots have been treated him. Through the seats in the states would have the parameters of long term contract were out there for rated aside from Butler have a contract. It's not that simple and out of Butler he asked why the now will science and if so quickly said well. You know after that April when he first. It sleep experts that if you really want me an opportunity. He army's stay in New England because you look at the money that same what you want the only person in the world I would. Senate win immediately write that he knew that he'd want people already at the guardian a soap so. There's hope at ABC. Lethal when he first beat if taken off I don't see that happening. Or also pave the way are allowed the teams in the right now the most sweepstakes and drive the price so. It's this way the game works also. If you do that can make sure that the states really you have your contract one. Rated ago we would trade if future now what could be compensation. For Malcolm Boller if he signs perfect pre tender and beat it straight to the saints. You probably look at that the 32 overall pick which seats acquired from the patriots. Took straight. A rod Wright is committed to being a virtual one for one swap between now Butler. And raincoats. Strayed off. So that we talked about a week ago. The final YouTube back your third round pick. Their third round pick the guy that you give up your back your fourth round you know worse for the Wear basically treated. Now the Butler anecdote straight up. And those that are over the parents say old out of dollars in worth that worth first round pick a lot have been differ because. If it's now a youth Olympic commitment to 32 pick. If he was drafted when he fourteenth they did that draft all over again one which he went undrafted. They held a draft all over him he'd gone first round. In the top fifteen player in the first round. That you're currently played. Week in week out matching up against these best player opposite opposite the patriots. In Denver for a pay now. The eleventh overall pick is not and play here I think it's a concern about oh peacetime to offer she did not sign him to offer she. That's not happen. And await the signs restricted free eight tender. And it treat for him that's the only way it deals down the date science to refute art yet it's on to offer sheet. The patriots don't know we're taking your eleventh overall pick up that offer this entity in that leverage off the table for me. It's it's pretty simple thinking but complex deal that way it is not a Butler worth first round pick. That you would seem like W vital importance to 1870 text 8787. On Twitter as well Christian Garrick. Ellis baseball about a 1231 an off field Sports Radio network would meet your calls a couple of interviews played as will Steve Islamic RW well. Christian and a friend of mine deleted the NFL network is Iranian. That the think he would trade and acquired PA. Four. You know. A free agent whatever. You treated it looked out while the only trade. If you only three. That's what I would think it is okay. We'll we'll be right and at least make it pretty. Yeah I think it's worked in a mean. Hello to the brother uses it a whole bunch of bond grants have the saint picking. A quarterback from North Carolina. There it. It's this ski yes it was there was one mock draft by being there David Jeremiah. Christian macapagal eleven and it's this legal authority to that was legal vehicle home mock draft like that was the whole intention like hateful prediction time. Yeah yeah I guess. We do. Then I'd like to wrap. It in anybody's money and it like to say he's wrong with a right. You know it's just the numbers. We you're going to be 8 PM Houston at the that. Well until you again I think it's 32 teams they're going to be very few people again and Poland you know. But I'd. They need to start looking for quarterback correct. Yes I guess that I mean I think it. I think their approach tonight roots approach Hayward about a week ago or about right now. ET two that you have to do it the first two rounds. You know. That it would Drew Brees is probably would continue. To. Yet it would be good. Good anyway. Right thing. Arts the thicker Fuller to open a 504260187. Malcolm Boller B ones that you wanna see him land in the black gold uniforms yes or no and also will give up what you will depart with. The seats to get Malcolm Boller it's just sports your WWL in government aka I welcome back it's a sports phone lines are open final four to 601878. At -- here 8787 saying they cannot treatment Stewart picks it changed this year owners voted and allowed that to happen you can treatments Torre traffic's. As far as ES in reporting that he can't treat acquired it I don't know that that's that's accurate. If it that was reported in it that. If that's true. Com as I understand if you acquire hit you on the pitch he can do that you won't weather's via traitor not you you can own that it. I don't know. Anyway. Malcolm Butler do you wanna see you see him land in the saints uniform. What he will look to get him in a black eagle Bible Ortiz until late seventy text 8787 how's your brackets look as well if suitably tournament brackets. At Villanova going down Wisconsin. At Boston everybody bracket on that side that structure but. Idiots and negates the emission low coming up. About ten minutes in my yard at way low with it switched off state in Utah in Kentucky Michigan State Kansas Arkansas UNC. Oregon Rhode Island USC and Baylor went on a seeded duke in South Carolina and Cincinnati in the east he'll play ball from today. In a while blades usually tournament they aired last night in the northwestern and and Zach has alternately that ball in the Paul. It's legally released statement about that the official statement from the group basically. Knocked down ball which is the obstacle in. How to practice look you know overall on -- on a pretty much for garbage that's the truth. Is this. Best college nationals might feel like you liked the term with the IP if it's the best tournament at all. Now I feel like just because of the drama intrigue it's veteran team like Villanova losing to Wisconsin. And it's it is it is huge I think that's what makes the electorate so. Fascinating keep keep up with. Poland to open at 5042601878. X 870 eights having those MIT a little under or. Happen notes and hate to come I don't wanna trade from Malcolm Butler. Pool go get a warmer in the draft well all right so what it would do that State's 32 you draft a quarterback. If you get it come with the experience certainly if you come with. You come with the overall skill level of Malcolm Boller at the rule it nice you don't know he might he could. But then again you know what you have an album while that's why it's pretty easy to make the decision wouldn't trade for player that's 27 years old. That's four years experience played into played in in one piece who bulls that second team all pro all pro. Not Pro Bowl all pro. So you find that guy that draft probably enough. That's why it's worth it said it. Two New England for Malcolm whether it's 32 pick or maybe second rounder the man at 42. I'd be fine with either one of those decisions maybe it's a first and third. You pack your fourth face it. And said I want one individual one for one swap. With the patriots for bringing coats and album Boller. That's 8787 telephone lines at 5042601870. Knuckleballer. Meeting with saints last week didn't let that lead to a contract. And hasn't estonians that it is done like I said. He had to look when he first openly. Signed his victory contender and then he traded. This could wait is that linger for awhile he could be we we can all be up Butler watch for several weeks. Wait till April 21 right up until draft pretty much we find out if that deals and good from the fortune not. But he has to be. He has to be signed to his fifth street and mean. Otherwise they are too restrictive two on restrict create and offer or a offer she exits and then that eleventh overall pick. From the saints is in place that they choose to take that in about a patriots if they said they sign knuckleballer to offer she do it that way. And I'm matches. Yarder gave Stephon Gilmore a big contract about in the neighborhood that Malcolm Butler is looking for in terms of four years sixteen million dollars per year. The time guaranteed money that's why I had the knuckleballer is not going back to England now they already paid player will and you would ask well how come. Up on the patriots. Are Willet traits that you play year. All he recognizes they recognize it supreme value the asset. And in in today's league it's really about renting a player. It's a with a player Powell leaves these days. Because the first the first four years. Five years of a pilot traffic are much much cheaper pity it. At the same production but close to saint production. Egan cheaper he saved some money on the back in and you're not upping its sour cabinet in up popped up not mean much dead money. It's it's a cheaper way. This is what happened at 2011 when they came up with this collective bargaining agreement it forced the value to be placed more on draft picks and drafted players and free agents and middle of the road we insist that there's a lot of guys on the open market this year. That. There's lot of guys and market issues that he think he thought was an a lot of money any is there really aren't out there and in one year contracts. Because teams are valuing draft picks more. It's cheaper way to get these service to your business to get production. Malcolm Butler. You commit sixteen million dollars a year that would Stephon Gilmore. Because don't want that they just can't afford that long term to cornerbacks make it sixteen million her. Can't happen that's why their interest that they're motivated as well to get a deal done the trade Malcolm Butler. Seven he wants only five why didn't we trade Butler for coach straight up politics on an 8787. Because he's not under contract yet. He's technically. Not an contractors he had signed his restricted free agent tender. That's why couldn't do it we feel betrayed Atlantic looks to New England they wanted to do they figured it back to revisit that deal. It's complex but until he signed his restricted free agent tender. He cannot be traded he's not on contract he can't trade. Players that are not under Contra hope that it question. Poland's open final four to 601870 test 8787. Many in online to you on Debian like meaning. On record and are welcomed but let Leo. I think that Brittany coach who couldn't it should be tried. You know let you know real late. Ground floor arc compared. But you get an important match. How to root in the future EU trade you know a third rounder back to New England. It will try to coax. Optional worn. Out their argument that he's a tall as a big transition to the pros and it would make. It. The beauty of good coaches bought. Yeah on the saints at the state to be really rolling the dice in order to. Com in order to draft a rookie depend on a rookie as the part of their defense. This year. In which with they have online this year it's playoffs or bust for a team that. Poor organization it's been 793 straight years they've got to get the playoffs this year. Otherwise it'll be it'll be another failed season 79 and and I'll likely changes come at the fourth streets at night seasons. They know that they can't rest their hopes on rookie quarterback. That's why states are motivated desperate if this deal done. Scott our line one you're on W Google's got. I could and I don't. Let them I'd like to create its play. Hard ball. A little bit on me I don't think he gonna get out about loop or only cramped. I'd like to be able to do it maybe get imported drew falling. Other big. But. They've go back again at the rate. They give it to our bill trying to get on then. Mourn their favorite on the bottom there. You'd think and I don't know that Butler mean. Belichick got the better of the states that sell. Actually I think they both teams came out with a pretty good that was about as bad bounces that note that some people felt it's got fleeced I don't see. And at least. And when they gave ample ground. They've built. An opinion in the that an important. Out of my country and in the and they. Found that Palin I always grow and a little bit of a deal. Where maybe it is kind of on on the coming dale would give it. And they hold off of that. Maybe you. They don't agree with him and are taken there but he might take that point. Yeah I think Debbie enough maybe to. And then do take that straight dates of phone calls dot divvy up after our news headlines need double the conversation as well a final 42601878. X 87870. It's a sports here at WW I welcome back operatives are working people on line at. WWL dot com what we pay importance to this weekend in your choices LSU baseball vs Georges saint welcome Butler watched NC double day March Madness pelicans hoops saint Patrick Saint Joseph celebrations crawfish shrimp crabs. You eight point present vote are Crawford trapping rats and saint Patrick's as the celebrations pelicans who is 2% March Madness in 7%. The saints and now the Butler watched 19%. The ones that 42%. For Ellis baseball and George baseball. On the most attention over crawfish. Shrimp and crab along with the saints are. There is a bit of Malcolm Butler fatigue and the stark said in Danny's. It starts at infamy get tired but it sync and my job after it it's after the at that night you know miners minute round fuel listen attention. Fan bases and eight let's skip the long. Some fatigue but LSU baseball knew fatigue there five to one yesterday beat Georgia beat him on Friday night 229. So eligible for the sweet at first SEC's series of the season this afternoon at 41230. Pre game. 1 o'clock first pitch right here on that well. Poland to open final four to 60187 talk about Malcolm Butler. How much would you willingly give up to get the second. Team all pro with the black and gold which unum. The 32 overall selection the in the street the second at 42 overall or perhaps. A combo picks there. The first round pick 32 overall. And third round you've got in the trade with four votes would you at all consider the eleventh overall. As saints at form up. Eleventh overall right cornerback LB is proven the player. I just don't think it that would be wise statesman and a missed out on their past rupture. That they desperately need the targeted at Russia for the last couple years in the first round and haven't had one since June Collette was sent back. Rightfully so lets him keep him but. Egypt in Jordan. Another compliment I like Alex Okafor that signing but he's a rotational players not gonna come and be your answer act. Advancement. Playing opposite of him George W part of rotation. He's not via. Fourteen sat thirteenth that I've doubled that sac where saints needed food in a meeting with the eleventh overall it here's how you want that that play out. We at guys like taco Charlton. Who's accused of Tennessee the Tennessee Barnett their part. He wanted to see those guys slide once the office of players as medium as possible for net dollars. Trap at high. Quarterbacks to what he does don't want to know Mario or mr. ms. ego or that pushes past rushers guys and help the saints down portal will be it. Right to eleven. Before that. He slipped and it's a mock drafts going past saint like in patent 1415. Christian McCaffrey's. Catapulted and jump aboard a little bit. What you feel like deceit that in the drafting back let the world pick it could be Christian. With that he better be good he better be really. Alas it didn't go nuts that. Certainly don't back to your phone calls at 5042601. Point seven texts eats at 87 inches sports on WW welcome back it's a sports Mike took the ESP NFL nation reporter covering the saints stop by double coverage earlier in the week. Here this stimulus my true glad Mike Triplett on Twitter ESPN and television reporter covering the New Orleans Saints yeah we broke out the big SARS the big guns for this one what's up Mike element. I know sitting outside my house waiting for my limo and organizers call again happy yet the studio wants when you're Chile's Alex Cora in the morning. You love that you love you know Kirk. Hey my name I saw I saw some of the Euro yesterday it coincidentally I was cussing and that stumbled upon Internet started going the to eleven and found your article about. This Malcolm Muller acquisition that could alternately he end up being two what's in fact a pseudo one for one swap would branding coach you do you mean. Just talk about that how that could end up. Playing out. We'll look. It's so funny and I realize they're not the same people on Twitter. But I really like it like a detective to find one person on Twitter instead. All we gave Brady coach who label whether they're at 32 pick in the crap that's garbage that's out and and then that same person a week later. We can't just accept the 36. I'm just don't talk much to give up. But look it is the original trade all along just been great picture about Butler. You know the only difference is their contracts branding coach was under contract for two more years. Basically a two year until for the patriots and each and price would be about. Ten million dollars total over two years now remote is ready to sign a new contract right now. You get one year left as a restricted rich that's the only difference these two guys. If you give them real light grade the second version of a Manhattan ratings are you a draft grade. You know I think it'd be drafted right next to each other I think they're great as players are right extra each other I think they're important to their careers so I think they're both played about you know top ten level receiver top ten level cornerback. They couldn't be more people and their teams are willing to get rid of them for the same reason there about cost of torture that probably bowl cost about fourteen million dollars a year on the open market. The deficit the saints need a quarterback really bad and they feel like they do without mercy so trading branding coach from Malcolm Butler. Or there was some sort of an NFL lead draft. And drafting Malcolm Butler head and brain and cause I think it makes perfect sense all the other stuff. Is is sort of nitpicking about it should be a two instead of a Greek debt swap out breakers from Malcolm Boller and that's their swap when you consider the saints meet. Yeah absolutely concur that Mikey validate my thoughts here and in comes down to. Basically. If you is if not among those coming in the world on a visit. The saints are you have an exploratory. Have done some exploration as to that I know that the CDA says that if they sign knuckleballer to offer sheet. Five days to match for New England could they were at the surrender their highest. Picking in round one if they don't match it but. What you don't eat that the saints are gonna make at risk in bringing him in without the understanding that in the patriots would settle for something other than the eleventh pick they would be will know. Work out compensation for him you group. Yeah I completely routine that I mean. In theory it's possible that they those exploratory talks with the patriots and they've found out that they're gonna have to stay the eleventh they get it. I just don't think that's the case that changing a very steep price to pay per. Considering you're also gonna prior to sign him to a contract or fourteen million dollars a year so I agree with the fact that it is reached that stage and the art that we know that the saints and patriots have talked with. With each other two weeks. I can imagine that they are comparable with but they note that trade competition price is going to be and they're willing to pay it. Now they wanna meet about Butler and see if they can agreed to a contract with them which is obviously the second app that's quite. Tyler Mike Triplett ESP NN a donation reporter covering the New Orleans Saints and I'm a slew of messages and questions on Twitter. Over the last that day day and a half this sums it up 1 from I am calling nine minutes ago. Says why aren't the same it's going to trade for him after he signs the tender rather than have him. Come here the same sentiment free agency. And then they work out opposite competition like why isn't happening the other way I guess was her question in the question and getting him signed his restricted free agent. Right but I guess he loves life and yet he's now required to sign that they until mid late trading to shouldn't buy dot. That's a whole region is available if you don't wanna play it for awhile and your street million dollar deal to escalate for a five year seventy million dollar deal on the patriots are giving it to on the plate like give it to so. That's why this straight is gonna happen but yeah I mean at the guy was available. At a one year three million dollar deal patriots would keep. Everybody at one moment that but you want sciele long term deal that Hillary why. He's available so. Say let's say we won't give you that long term deal. And and you have been ordered you know unfortunately he's not under restricted free agent that would be a lot easier. That is restricted free to go up to you that the draft pick the patriot. Well explained micros shifts focus here saints free agency they bring back the virus can debt today everything else they're looking at here late stages mid late stage have free agency that. It's hard to imagine they're gonna make another splash salvo about about Libya expose a weak to create a splash. I'm sure they're gonna sign two or three more guys you know this huge this is probably about the time. Actually I think Greg Ellis you Prodi last year when they brought in like Craig Robertson in the stupor a little yeah yeah. You know yeah yeah and so you know more moon are gonna happen. Very rare that at this stage of the game. Again you know get the splat started it cost a million dollars a year or more. But I'm sure they're not done. I'm sure they can at a couple more pieces that there recite a couple more of their guys here Jim Hightower sterling Moore bald eagle out there and that you got it should be a priority for the saint street sign. You don't go to the high level of freeagent guys are very they're gonna bring back or trauma he at this stage. Mike. Help me how I guess help me understand too. The decision to Rebecca de he think that's a sign that he's got young on the roster for sure you see there be competing when Marcus Murphy. Well I don't know we wanna be on the roster are sure at all. Give a kid had a better chance of Murphy based on playing time but yeah I I can imagine that the cadet feel very close to that. Minimum deal though each look. Is exactly what you want to be trying to make acute treatment he can do a variety of things he can. Can't that Philly and morality to return kick up their emergency quarterback. So he's the kind of guy you like they have on the roster but he certainly could be beat out the it doesn't preclude them from. Drafting a Christian McKay appeared Alvin Coker or somebody like that in the third round two could potentially beat out two bears to bet that. It absolutely no commitment perfect insurance policy that as a versatile. Might actually had a better question the right is over the microphone up in in the skate my month might do you live for us and that's why you got a good about it if you're all right you're going all right all right I wanna like Indiana about that. Question do it here. What grade would you go to. Mike Triplett I'd like to put onto an ESPN informational tour. Covering the New Orleans say it's always a pleasure in talking to you will see a college draft day for sure and it either goes Mike Triplett. At my triplets what are the phoenician reporter covering the New Orleans Saints steadily combat arguable reason why this trade is pretty much a sure thing. To go down men go down for a couple weeks but I'll explain next you know on it's just sports on W I another reason why this trade pretty much has happened the saints have gone in on some corners and three seed in this on AJ who EA. They were in the market there they were in the running in the mix it usually expressed some interest but ultimately found themselves behind the likes of the jaguars the bears the titans and Texans. You locked up who EA who and a sign and a five year 67527. Point five million dollar. Contract with the jaguars a little too steep for. Their liking now they also express an interest in Marcus Cooper sign. A three year deal with the Chicago Bears formally of the Kansas City Chiefs and they've they've tried to win a couple corners already. This will be their third attempt and that's why they happy they if they put it out there's so much they almost have to. Make this deal work and get it done for Malcolm Butler. Couldn't that could be a couple weeks and I know for a week for. It looks like it's going to happen it's a matter of time with compensation will be. Will be fascinating to watch LSU baseball today at 1230 are actually first pitch at 1 o'clock we have an off. The LT Sports Radio network and any time I'll be with you for the next ninety minutes talking saint also elegy baseball as well we have a whole fund raiser to promote. Also coming up saint baltics next weekend you could double a conversation at 5042601878. X 87870 it's just sports rules on here on the BW.
