Staying in the past will only let the present be swallowed and the future to pass you by...

Lance Moore
Best fans in the world!!!

Jeff Duncan
Ideal situation for Saints obviously would be to finalize long-term deal w/Brees, sign Colston & tag Nicks. That's best-case scenario.

Jeff Duncan
The most interesting deals will be Colston & Nicks. Both deserve to get paid. Not sure Saints can afford to give Nicks "Evans money."

Jeff Duncan
The Saints are almost surely going to lose come pieces to their "core" this offseason. Not enough cash, cap room to go around.

Jeff Duncan
will likely use franchise tag on Brees. Priorities after that, IMO, are: Nicks, Colston, Porter, Meachem, Rogers, Dunbar, Franklin.

Jeff Duncan
Saints' UFAs for 2012: Brees, Colston, Nicks, Meachem, Porter, Dunbar, Rogers, Franklin, McBride, Charleston, Roby, Torrence & Gilmore.

Lance Moore
Just want to thank everyone for their love and support again. I had to get myself out of the tank. It's time to move forward. Who dat!
