At 32 he's on the downhill of his career for his position, I would give him no more than a 2 year contract at reasonable price. We don't need another overpaid over the hill player type debacle.

Why the love outpouring for Brian Kelly?

I think we need to wait and see how the smoke clears over Rogers and Springs...other than that...yeah, if the price is right

He's aging, but he's a versatile playmaker who could line up at #2 CB or safety. I believe he's a converted safety. Given that Samuel and Trufant will want insane contracts (i.e., $10M a year), many cap-rich teams could use a #1 CB, there aren't a lot of great CBs in the draft who will be available at 21, Springs is aging, and Rogers will be less than 100% by the start of the season, I'd support signing him at a reasonable price.

Well said. Key words- "reasonable price."
We don't have a lot of money to spend. If we can't find a good value in the draft at CB, a signing along the lines of a Brian Kelly could happen. I'm still a fan of Talib, but I don't want to reach to get him.

I have a feeling we're going to relax on these type moves.

I was going to say what's so special about this guy? We already have a 30+ corner.

[quote=SmootSmack;415172]Is he your Tim Rattay of 2008?[/quote]Pretty much.

He can be had cheaper than Springs, and he might even be better.

He's perfect for what we need next season, and in 2009. After that, we'll probably have a more long term solution anyway.

Did Charles Grant sign a long term contract with the Saints, or is he another UFA this year?

That's another guy who could be intriguing.

Better than Springs?! A pox on you!!

Grant signed an extension last spring

kelly isn't better than springs. he just has ronde back there to help.

he'd be a good sub till rogers is back, but beyond a two year deal, it'd be kinda silly. NO BIG MONEY!!!

I mean, this guy has spent an awful lot of 06 and 07 on the bench. old and injured = not a good omen.

Kellly is about on par w/Springs in ability, age & recent injury history. I would prefer we keep a guy who played well for us last year during tough times for him. We don't need to add another injury prone cb, if anything we need youth.

no no no this guy is basically a linebacker at this point in his career. Hell go to detriot or another Cover 2 system, slow the receiver down and jump some underneath routes.
