The Saints may still take Lienart if this blurb from Profootballtalk.com is true:

BREES DEAL IS A ONE-YEAR ARRANGEMENT



Lost in the hubbub regarding the decision of Drew Brees to sign with the Saints is the fact that his contract is, as a practical matter, a one-year deal.



Why? Because the deal contains a whopping $12 million option bonus due in the spring of 2007, in addition to his $8 million signing bonus.



We're not saying that the Saints won't pick up the option if Brees has an MVP season and delivers a Lombardi to the Bayou. Barring that highly unlikely outcome, however, the contract will either be terminated or restructured in a year, making the thing a one-year, $10 million deal.



So, as a practical matter, Brees doesn't have much more security than he would have had if the Chargers had slapped the franchise tag on him.



As a result, we're not prepared to give much credence to the news that the Saints will look to trade out of the No. 2 spot in the draft. At a time when the team is looking to parlay the Brees season ticket sales for folks who are happy to hear that Drew is coming to town, the last thing that the franchise needs to emphasize over the next months or so is the possibility that the Brees is but a Band-Aid.



Don't be shocked, then, if the Saints ultimately declare that they couldn't get commensurate value for the pick, and that they had no choice but to use on Matt Leinart.

    I say this because it would really piss off Dolphins fans, so it must happen. It is a law.


Doesn't really piss me off, since it's a definite possibility due to his injury status. However...

Take that back. You take that back RIGHT NOW!

He passed the physical. Bye bye, Daunte.

Word around Minnesota has the Vikings shopping their first round draft pick, both their seconds, and a mid range player (the popular name is Jim Kleinsasser) to New Orleans for the number two draft pick to get Leinhart. Probably not a chance in hell at that happening (or if it does, the Vikings would probably draft Young just to spite me), but it'd be cool if it did.

According to the draft value chart (available here http://www.thehuddlereport.com/NickelPackage/tradevaluechart.htm), that's not even close to enough. The #2 pick is valued at 2600. Your #1 (17 overall) is worth 950. Your two number 2's are worth 420 and 410. Those three picks together are a total of 1780, and a mid-level player isn't nearly worth enough to offset the difference.

Yeah, but if we go by the Ricky trade, I don't think the Saints have a copy of said chart.

Using the same graph, do you realize that the Ricky Williams deal that they made with Washington where they sent their whole draft plus another 1st-rounder ended up being 4245-1700 in favor of the Redskins?
