When you go to regain it ought to keep needles but the little emotional -- You can feel all the glory that the recipient you don't see every and that that makes the game and the atmosphere between girl and make the better. I mean that doesn't make it better. And all of Jimmy Graham subject he he. On the contract and the tiger is that correct. On track to. Net try at least on their contract -- this don't get me stopping to that contract that would. Well it's done -- thing and you know wait now I am Brian on in all fairness though. I beat Woody I guess is what you do -- I want topic. New year and not under contract that product and here. Right -- and let's not contract attack contract expired and it during the course of that contract. You felt like you were being used outside the scope of your job our ability -- I I would go out would do well and try to you know get more money more -- -- -- position on you understand that I don't understand now. But it was a but if you or if it is if you -- -- as a tight -- come on and the project and -- year. Right to tell you that tactic target and just like they brought to. They use used by the year it. Wouldn't you try to. You. -- okay. I I mean the guy out with the out called out on our contract. -- But if he were Jimmy Graham is coming from.

I always think I think Dallas played out. In the superdome but now. They need to do some different. They're playing at less frequently. Those who don't these days. -- that -- I was 200910. And that that song has run its course. Joining us now Steve Tyler cover in the NBA for basketball insiders. Steve the pelicans and acquiring Russ Smith. Second round one kind of player development getting rest. Well rock hard nosed competitor you know you just have a fire ball anger and an incorrect and you know what he -- to the ring and you know it's probably. He's probably -- -- four inches too -- in -- More to go more to the -- cup player. You are really on the ball type guys and maybe today maybe more players you know we thought -- river was going to be like. I think any interest in the selection -- -- -- interest in he could tell in total but. I would tell you don't think here Jack and the player right they treat it might need to -- Player in the point here or Hewitt in that command a lot of -- money. It may be moral and what won't commit where in -- -- it they can get that guaranteed money spent on your -- you know -- think that it seemed like a little bit down talent department -- currently -- well all the hard -- So what's next for the pelicans and a lot of folks felt like it was obvious. Small forward was. One other areas of need. It is being and that's probably get -- in free agency Appel and he agreed -- and I acquired Mark O'Meara. Shake you know that can happen here in July. They are -- accounting -- -- eat cake plate by your feet pal in. Involved in a couple of tree it would create the open -- to make sure they clear -- -- -- they get a -- but -- -- other -- -- -- free agent market place gap player you know -- Rica is -- that you mentioned a lot at the kind of all coming from -- in that -- been in Portland before but. In a couple other better right player not a leader. Or law thing I'll -- -- to -- -- are certainly not the actual brought Carmelo. You know the elite level guys to their position but. You know names like Marvin Williams Mike Miller the greens -- you know PG cart -- the technique continues to pop up when we hear you're all of the -- or condition by. You know I'll let anchored near the window here -- talk about you know air or your contract maybe trading him for it in small forward trying to all loads on the more you -- They do that can he find a partner their Steve. You know. Permanent problem here in October need to get traded one spot or who -- -- -- trade life. You know we need you kind of deal at all week about what we -- -- money. And I think that really where all it comes into play and you're in the eighty into the right trap right. -- it you know come into play where he -- current -- team that. Kind of the door of that money I don't think we're going to be a movie strict you know so much money that unpredictable production by. You know every -- like that is not a movable contract. Contract he knew that summer so it's always possible to always come down Q Woody will take back part of the deal. Moving money in the NBA power your take it back. Sometime -- -- -- so it's one of the things work. You move off -- sixty -- fuel pick pat are you in some combination a long term a lot of -- -- -- the deal -- -- Visit with Steve Tyler coverage in BA for basketball insiders here on sports talk WB well I am math and it got comic Steve. So throughout the draft last night was there any -- that raised eyebrows for you that you said than Angola now. Well I. Selection by the -- Sergio need a little bit of fracture in that way they you know did. You. It last year that you really are and you start to look at you know team that really beating. Anybody's gonna help them. This seat -- -- or are you out. -- -- probably why he won't -- away from being really needed to back. You call sheet again and so -- -- moving his rookie even -- I don't think that the Philadelphia. There are really help themselves when they could put into their goal scoring. And long term talent and they hand. And when you look at the long term goal can -- -- the unity or any interest in prospects it could be you know theory. -- Billy dubious star and I don't look that Agile accurate in that our -- but. You know you look at what -- Steel -- to be pretty special moment here Toronto rappers. You know it's a draft in. Bruno have a logo -- chipped in small four from Brazil. They got a little surprised you'd want we kind of expected the Perot got it -- It probably in the background but Toronto coming up in -- guys want it. You know they're arguably 23 years away from even being able to compete in training camp environment that was a little surprising but you're really looking to rock roster -- -- -- -- Lotta time. To develop a young guy. Law here it's more about. Looks exactly -- road kind of stock in the hopper per couple a year later -- -- you -- play out there Antonio Oklahoma eighty teams that are trapped in Atlantic last year Eric Latin players this year explain to use him two years. So I think that's really hectic with permanently a great player they're interest in prospects which one was a little odd for. What do you think LeBron James them back in Miami ars ago the Knicks is the go to Chicago. Los Angeles Houston Dallas where you think. Well I use it. It behind me they're just kind of prop. There it is the first LeBron and had more years -- it is contract keep it to the chance for him to. You kind of watch the ball well and make sure that the thing you want starred for the victory are getting -- -- in our product. Help the -- -- -- -- -- -- longer term you'll hurt they read a little money on the table so they get in free agency.

Other than -- coats. Who's gonna have at least impact as a rookie for the Saints is it going to be Stanley. Jean Baptiste. -- for the fourth round linebacker. Out of cal. Ronald L linebacker floor. Libya. -- serie. Safety. Out of Alabama. And Kevin Brooks. Off as a lineman. From Kansas. But who's gonna have severe impact Staley team that he's -- -- and position as well. Kevin -- take nothing away from but -- -- -- line with this office Salina. Maybe he's Mora and it. Developmental guy is going to be playing this year. Very much if at all -- since Terry kind of that. Special teams ace. Wanna be -- -- -- one of those core. Special teams players all four units. Throughout the year. And I think that's where he's going to excel if there's an area that the Saints drastically needed to improve its. The coverages were good last in the return game not so much. Critical to have an impact in the return game in all likelihood -- a -- -- down two Stanley Jean Baptiste. In Ronald now outside linebacker for. And -- how old is the number one recruit in the country few years ago before going to the gators. Injuries. Set him back a little bit. But watching in an organized team activities and mini camp but he certainly looks the part and we'll see when the pads go on. July. If he separates. -- man he's an intriguing player to me always Stanley team that these. Randy -- I think it's safe to say he'll have an impact somewhere I don't know that his impact will necessarily be huge. On. The offensive side of the ball. The numbers might not be there but what we -- for other players like it Jimmy Graham like -- Marcus Colston. -- how -- contribute as a return guy. And is -- a lot of comparisons early on to Percy our abilities it won't do the Minnesota Vikings and last year at Seattle Seahawks. But other than -- -- which rookie. While the biggest impact for the Saints it went fourteen to 601870. Told 3866890870. The only team that tees. Talking to him the other day the biggest obstacle he faces. His grasping. The system. And his defense not thinking you know about him play. Has some receiving skills though as a four receiver as a football skills as some ball skills. -- -- Last year the NFC championship game. If Richard Sherman wasn't. As long as he was at 62 victory. If he wasn't that I -- a huge wingspan. 49ers who want to another Super Bowl he -- the way that pass. And Staley Jean Baptiste sixth Torre. Long arms huge wingspan. That's the difference and that kind of player can make now and I try to compare him to. Richard Sherman. But. He can be a player to keep him out there and won a bigger impacts. On his defense. Team daily eleven opportunity. That old -- the questions that old but the wily veteran. Experienced player. In a nickel and dime sets and then steal energy back east Corey white another player of the unit. Conversation. And where where is Patrick Robinson mean as a former first round dropping albeit. 32 overall following that point in season. But. He's -- on this chart in this saints' roster. Right fourth by espn.com. Has in the fourth best in the National Football League one of the deeper teams the Saints have and recently. They know 9/11. Very very deep quality depth but this roster rivals that of 09. -- -- eleven team. When they add an abundance of talent and number of positions and -- their. Week on one particular. That we put their -- in on one particular. Position group with the offensive line. And if they sustained some injuries there. Could be a little Dicey. The which rookie. Other than -- -- Let the biggest impact -- -- when he fourteen for the Saints 260187. It's all free. 8668890870. Ronald Powell specialties perhaps a role player on defense -- pass rusher. Yeah really yet to really good dynamic play makers all the defense is not a football sort of pass rushers. And Cameron Jordan. An outside linebacker junior -- oh by the way the of Burton's. Hakim nicks all of interior defensive tackle position. Clint Foster played well last year. The wild card is going to be. Victor Butler an outside linebacker. Injured a year ago ACL injury. Did. You see the field. He's looked good. Penalties in mini camp how well does he recover. From the ACL injury. And you can almost count him in his. Free agency crop 44 team with -- spurred and others. And his draft class or is this new allotment of players. Because it in play a year ago. But Victor Butler. Ecstasy when he brings to the Saints defense this season. Had high hopes last year and very positive reviews last year the for the ACL injury. And both -- not being talked about very much Joseph Morgan also coming off an ACL injury. Mean that is why receiver corps. It's pretty stacked the competition. You have the incumbents. Kenny stills -- to do as a rookie last year Marcus Colston. Robert Meachem. Coats. Nick toon. Who's very much I think in improving year. Out of that -- facility like the make or break year term but it improving year hey look you're third year. First -- a bit of a redshirt season. Last year played in a couple of teams inactive for vast majority has -- -- fifth receiver couldn't be out Kenny stills for playing time. He fourth round draft pick -- point though I'm pleased are proven it. In making your your roster presence felt. Over the rookies at the wide receiver position are just the wide receiver competition in general -- to be fascinating. Come training camp in July. Receiver goes somebody on this on this team on this one receiving corps is going to cut and -- having no mention -- fan favorite -- -- theater. And he just doesn't do well mean what does he do that separates themselves from the guys and adjustments and -- still more useful than. Coats Robert Meachem. To what does he do that's different from those guys catches everything sure but there's not a specific skills that are unique skill set. In the NFL. There's so much coaches have so much about finding capitalizing on a specific skill. That player does. That player possesses. It brings to their table to their office. Today defense that they can take advantage of but that wide receiver group. Extremely -- extremely interesting to watch this year. In training camp and somebody -- but some players and it gets cut from this group of players. OK it's on and probably. Make an active roster. Of want the other teams -- national football former Saints wide receiver and kick returner Courtney Roby. Will work out with the Atlanta Falcons. You know signing is imminent but he'll work out with -- Falcons. And we'll see -- thought Courtney Roby who was out of football a year ago.
