Ex Saints still looking for jobs

When you look at the Saints roster you get the feeling it is close to complete but they could still round out some of their needs with some post draft pick ups. When the Saints start seeing some of these guys practice, too, they’ll get a better feel for whether or not they need to bring in certain veterans at a given position.

Losing Unger Leaves A Leadership Void For Seattle

As the dust begins to settle on the trade which now sees Seattle boasting Jimmy Graham on it's roster, the cost was losing their 1st round pick as well as Max Unger, one of the key components of the Seahawks in recent years.

With Max Unger out the Seattle Seahawks could be heading for a bloodbath

With Pro Bowl center Max Unger leading the Seattle Seahawks offensive line, Seattle has the most dynamic rushing offense in the league.
