Ladell Betts visiting Saints - How about bringing a LBer too???



I heard today that Ladell Betts was scheduled to visit the Saints.  I immediately thought either the Pierre Thomas injury got somone nervous, Lynell Hamilton it not giving as good as expected or Loomis wants to take a guy off the market knowing that this is a position that all teams will be insuring that they have depth.  Then I got to thinking what about Linebacker???  I fully believe giving the youngsters a shot, but have a veteran waiting on deck.  Morlon Greenwood and Marcus Washington are still available.  I recently heard that older guys like Derrick Brooks, Donnie Edwards and Junior Seau still want to play and they just may have something left in the tank (OK so maybe Junior's only got like 1/10th of a tank left), but I have got to believe that going with 2 veterans and a barrel of unproven kids is not the way to go.  Nor do I think the d-line is stong enough to compensate for a failure at the LB position.  I do believe that from a coverage standpoint in the secondary that the Saints match up better than 80% of the teams in the NFL, but holes at the LB can be exploited by just above average O-Coordinators and if they have a playmaker at QB like say Brett Favre, Tony Romo, Matt Ryan, Ben Roethlisberger or Carson Palmer (which all just happen to be on the schedule the year) watch out!

In short, "Can I get a LB'er in camp please?"
