Fox: Saints the Front-Runner to Land CB Samuel

Samuel

As the clock ticks towards free agency, Fox Sports’ John Czarnecki says that the Saints are the front runners for one of the top free agents when the signing peroid starts Friday. That free agent that the Saints have the inside track on is corner back Asante Samuel of the Pats. Samuel wants a fortune – somewhere between $10 and $11 million per year, but it’s a number according to Czarnecki that the Saints are willing to pay. The Saints clearly need help in the secondary, and Samuel is the best out there – so if the shoe fits as they say – wear it.

    I hope they do go after Samuel, but not at the expense of other players. If they can get Jonathan Vilma in a trade with the Jets and pick up Bryant Johnson, boy that would be a pretty successful offseason heading in to the draft.

    this would be a dream come true. I can’t wait to buy a Jason David jersey just so I can torch it once Samuel signs.

  3. Shreveport Saint says:

    Yea, I’d like to have Vilma too, but with all the cap money other teams have as well as the Saints, we probably will have only 1 shot to sign a star.

    Sign the biggest star now: Samuel. We signed the biggest fish in Brees a couple of years back and that seemed to work out for us too.

    How many years does Samuel have left. He is a five year vet. How long do cornerbacks average.

    “A cornerback is dependent on a good pass rush, a solid rushing defense to set up predictable passing downs, sound coaching schemes, even the offensive performance of his team.”

    We need young speed at CB and experienced safetys (also with good speed) and strong defensive pressure. A cornerback isolated is a receipt for rain in the French Qtr after Mardi Gras….garbage wet and nasty…see I Jason “I gave up mo td’s in the nfl” david. Mckenzie is aged. Even if we get Samuel, we need some young speed oposite…or if we keep David (only if he gets a confidence shot…cause he is damaged goods…and it was not entirely his fault) we must get safety support and defensive pressure.

    We need to draft Def line and WR and CB help.

    Samuel was good, but so was Jason david prior to last year. Everything that glitters does not also shine as a Saint!

    ya’ll trippin samuel is oneof the best corners in the league so is McKenzie so i say that they should get him

    Here’s what was written and thought about Jason ” If you wanna touchdown see me” David

    “NFL CAREER – The Saints acquired David in a bold move, signing the young but proven performer at cornerback to four-year deal despite the fourth-year veteran from Indianapolis being a Restricted Free Agent. Under terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Colts had a week to match the offer sheet. After that time frame expired, David joined the Saints as a key addition to the secondary. He has appeared in all 48 regular-season games of his career – with 43 starts – while also opening six of seven postseason games the Colts have played since 2004, including the club’s Super Bowl XLI victory. While David remains an emerging talent, he is an established, experienced starter who has been extremely productive in his first three seasons.”

    Samuel is a catch…but he will be vunerable if we don’t add other def support.

  7. Saint4life says:

    I actually believe that Mckenzie is a top corner and Jason can be solid, with the right support. It is the D-Line that was disappointing last season. No pressure means no help for your cb’s. It would be a solid def backfield with all three…what if Mckenzie was moved to saftey…Is that a viable transition???
