Saints cut DT Grady Jackson - Sign him!

Recommended Posts

This is the guy we wanted to trade for earlier this year. The guy had a falling out with the coach but was having a good year with 4 sacks so far.

I think this season is shot now, but I think we should sign him if we can, looking more towards next season. We might have two pretty good DT's in 2004 then, if we sign him and resign Darrell Russell.

Of course, we don't have a lot of cap space at the moment, and some team like the Raiders or Vikings may go after him. :(

Saints waive DT Grady Jackson

November 3, 2003 - METAIRIE, Louisiana (Ticker)

Less than a week after suspending Grady Jackson, the New Orleans Saints on Monday waived the veteran defensive tackle.

The Saints suspended Jackson last Tuesday for conduct detrimental to the team. The club did not disclose the incident that led to Jackson's suspension.

One of the Saints' best run-stoppers, the 6-2, 330-pound Jackson has collected 20 tackles and was second on the team with four sacks in seven games this season.

Jackson, 30, spent his first five years with the Oakland Raiders before signing with the Saints as a free agent in 2002.

Without Jackson, the Saints (4-5) posted a 17-14 victory at Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Eagles are thin as can be at DT after Hollis Thomas tearing his biceps. I'd love for them to go after him. We definetly have the cap space.

However, if he is signed, we may lose the heralded "Cap Bowl", where we are currently fighting against Arizona to remain the team furthest under the cap this season. At least we've won some type of "bowl" before!

Conduct detrimental to the team, can be something as little as being late 15 minutes to a team meeting several times. Its hard to say what it was, but he was guilty of that in the past.

He also did not participate in offseason workouts I know, when he got overweight and the Saints HC was pissed about that earlier in the year.

But the guy can obviously play even when he is overweight. :)

Forget that. What we need to sign is a coaching staff!!

Untill then bring us a new DT :)

We wanted him in the preseason now we can get him without sacrificing anything.

A Jackson and Russel DL sounds good to me. Put Hosley on IR since he has a broken hand anyway.
