Devery Henderson WR 5 UFA

This is a tough one. Devery had the chance to find a new home last off-season but no teams came a-callin'. After a stronger 2008 season, one in which he didn't drop as many balls, he may draw more interest. If the team thinks they can get by with the rest of their young, up and coming receivers like Meachem and Arrington, they may not put a contract on the table and Henderson might walk. With Lance Moore also a free agent, the Saints may not be able to afford both of them.

Lance Moore WR 3 RFA

After the 2008 season, Lance Moore is officially the number two receiver on the Saints behind Marques Colston. Making sure Moore stays in the black and gold should be the coaching staffs top priority behind re-signing Jonathan Vilma but it's gonna cost them. With Devery Henderson also on the market, things will get a bit tricky. My ideal situation would be to see the Saints sign both Henderson and Moore. I get nervous at the thought of breaking up the receiving corp that was such a large part of the number one offense in the league. But if they're only going to offer one of them a contract, Lance is my man. Hands down.

Mark Campbell TE 10 UFA

Campbell has been loyal to the Saints and he's a great veteran presence but with Shockey on the roster and Billy Miller having a good 2008 season he's only a third option. His blocking might keep him on this team if the Saints don't find someone else. Someone who can play an entire season perhaps.

Aaron Stecker RB 9 UFA

Steck (Shut yo mouth!) is always there when injuries wipe out our backfield and is a good contributor on special teams but he's not getting any younger. However, he might be willing to accept a low offer just for the convenience of job stability.

Joey Harrington QB 7 UFA

Sure he might be a cheaper option than Brunell, who made more than $4.5 million last year, but there is a reason for that. Quarterback is not the position you want to be cheap with in case Drew ever went down. Plus...Harrington sucks. Cut him loose and let Payton start a new protege project with a younger, cheaper quarterback if he wants.
