Free agent tackle Jermon Bushrod has yet to have any significant contract talks with the New Orleans Saints, per Larry Holder of NOLA.com. The two time Pro Bowler had this to say about the situation:
Bushrod added, though, he expects talks to heat up soon and maybe as early as this week. “It’s about to get interesting,” Bushrod said.
Bushrod said he’s heard the report of how the Saints don’t plan on using the franchise tag on Bushrod, who General Manager Mickey Loomis said earlier this offseason is the Saints’ top free-agent priority. Bushrod understands that while the possible $9.7 million price tag for an offensive lineman under the franchise tag would be a “blessing,” Bushrod covets a long-term deal specifically with the Saints.
The future doesn’t look to good for the Saints. They have the second highest cap number(currently). To get a deal done they are going to have to restructure some contracts. The most likely candidates for restructures are Will Smith, Jonathan Vilma, and Ro...

Andrew's post on who were the worst picks the Saints ever had inspired me to write a little post of myself. I looked at a possible scenario where the Saints had not drafted the guy they picked but had drafted another guy that was drafted later, next man up. Couple of rules: the player must be the Saints' first pick of that year and he must be compared to the same position...
Picking the best non 1st round draft picks for the Saints was a fun exercise, but a very difficult one too. There is no way I could come up with a 10 top list, too many good players to name. So I decided to do 20. Some great Saints players on here. I hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane, or the history lessen if you're a newer/younger Saints fan.
