Brown & Howard both to the D?

Maybe its one or the other but we are mentioned as a possible trade suitor for the Defensive End of New Orleans. Not likely, but possibly a gardner for Howard trade... What do u guys think? Maybe Courtney Brown will effect this situation.

If we have Brown, & Howard to go with Lavar and Taylor. I really don't give a damn who plays Corner next year. Hell I could play corner with all the pressure that they would put on the qb

Re: Brown & Howard both to the D?

I think Howard is going to be getting a big contract. Plus the Saints would more than likely want a pick from us so I don't really see that happening.

Re: Brown & Howard both to the D?

That would be nice but I can't see us having the cap room to afford Howard. I'm pretty sure he carries a hefty guaranteed salary as a franchised player, especially since he signed his tender. I have a good feeling about Brown, though. Not only do I think we will signh him, I also think he will be quite good for us. Just have a feeling that after Williams made do with those much less talented D-line players last year, he will really be able to do some things with a guy with Courtney's talent.

Re: Brown & Howard both to the D?

Not only that... the injuries that he got were pretty heavy-duty. Like I said in another post, the guy has just been unlucky.

Re: Brown & Howard both to the D?

I can't imagine the circumstances under which we could sign Howard. I wish we could, but the cap room just isn't there. Also, with the franchise tag on him, the Saints must be looking for a lot in return.

Re: Brown & Howard both to the D?

We can't come close to affording him. His franchise tag number is 7.8 million, which would immediately hit our cap if we were to take him in a trade. At this point, we only have $2 million or so in cap room. If we trade Gardner, we'd have $4 million in room to work with. Still not enough.

Even if we were to turn around and sign him long term (which we would certainly have to do), there would be just about no way of keeping his number low enough to fit on the team - and being able to sign him doesn't mean they would trade him to us. We'd need to give up too much to get him.

Re: Brown & Howard both to the D?

Sounds like another Moss scenario... Not only that, we have some solid backups for at least the present.

Re: Brown & Howard both to the D?

I would rather have Brown who is a free agent and cheaper than Howard who will cost more in compensation and cap room...

If we can hget Howard that would be superb.

He is one of the best all round DEs in the NFL.

Re: Brown & Howard both to the D?

je suis le krunkd...but i dont think we need both of these guys. just brown will do. howard too expensive, brown should be cheaper...bring in a young DE through the draft in the 3rd or 4th round id say to groom behind brown, wynn, daniels, and the rest

I think they need to spend our money on offense.
