    The awesome LT missed most of last season with hip problems and there are multiple rumors that the Saints are willing to part with Brown after he sign his tender including this article... New Orleans Saints offensive tackle Jammal Brown reacts to team's draft choice of USC OT Charles Brown | - NOLA.com

    I think Matt Light is still capable of some decent games but his play has sharply dropped off over the years,maybe time to look around.

    Is it time to give Light some very serious competition at LT?

    I don't know what it would take to get this young 2 time pro bowler who is only 27 and in the league just 4 years,but Brown at the LT position would make me feel a lot more confident he can protect Brady much better than Light can at this stage in Matt's career.

    I assume Vollmer will take over the RG/RT position, so Light could be the odd man out if the Pats would use a future draft pick or some sort of trade on this guy.

    Anyone for Jammal Brown?

    Unless Charles Brown is ready to step in immediately, the Saints are going to really struggle at LT - Jared Bushrod did an admireable job all last year, but nonetheless, he was lucky he had Jeremy Shockey(and the RBs) to help him out, as the Saints O is loaded. However - late in the year when Shockey and the RBs got hurt, Bushrod struggled(i.e. the Dallas game where he was forced to go 1-1 with Demarcus Ware).

    Considering that the Saints need depth at OT, I wouldn't think J. Brown is going anywhere.

    Rotoworld reports that several executives from other teams are convinced that Brown will not be a Saint by summer and could be traded shortly after his tender is signed....I think it will be interesting.

    The Pats should look at this guy if they feel Light is replaceable there now.

    I doubrt theyre bringing in a guy to play tackle when they have Vollmer up and coming. We could use anyone over Kazcur though on the right side.

    The Saints have a preference for bulkier OL. If you check out their roster on NFL.com, they have two players listed below 315, the reserve Center and the rookie OT, whereas NE's two heaviest players are both 315 - Kaczur and Vollmer. If NO cuts Brown loose I'm sure NE will consider him, but even if he is healthy, teams like Buffalo or Chicago with more urgent OT needs are more likely to outbid NE.

    Thats where Vollmer should go ..at RT

    I know it probably will never happen but an OL of

    Brown,Mankins,Koppen,Vollmer and Neal would be one of the most impressive lines in the NFL with only Koppen as the weak link and hoping Neal stays healthy.

    Brady deserves a top notch line before he ages quickly with every sack or hurried pass he must endure.

    Flozell Adams may go to either Buffalo or Chicago and that might take one of them out of the mix for Brown should he become available,I think Denver is hoping Clady will be ready by August.

    I guess it will depend on which team has the better offer in trade or some type of compensation of draft picks to N.O. and who wants to pay Jammal what he thinks he is worth.

    Vollmer is the LT of the future, and a servicable starting RT can be found in the middle rounds of the draft.

    No disrespect to Brown, he is a stud LT, but if the Patriots are going to make that kind of investment in cash and picks, it won't be at such a position of strength.

    We have bigger problems in the interior of the O line. Light is not a problem. People need to forget about the Suggs sack too. Look at Lights play over the season. He'll be fine, as will the other tackles.

    Yes, exactly. We have Vollmer ready to take the torch at LT. I dont know why we're even talking about bringing some unknown commodity to consider protecting Brady's blindside. Because to THIS team and its players, Jamaal Brown is definitely an unknown. Neal at RG is the problem because he consistently misses so many games. Sure, when he's in there he's good. Problem is, he misses 4 or 5 games every year. He's mid 30s now with chronic shoulder issues. If we're looking for an answer somewhere, it needs to be there on the inside.

    I might be more interested in Jared Gaither from the Ravens. He is young but has experience. They wanted a high second rounder for him.
    Maybe we could take a flyer on him although I think with the advent of this last Draft and the six tackles on the depth chart, I think BB will see what falls out. Light is one of my favorites but he plays now with experience more than domination and he has lost a little on his fastball with speed to protect wide. He also is expensive and in the last year of his contract. Trade Light during the pre-season? I think it is possible if one of the other kids steps up.

    I think the weakest link is Kcazur. I don't know why they can't shove him inside and groom him for Neals slot although Kcazur will be 31 in July and only one year younger than light!!!How many of you Cousins knew that?

    You have Bussey from last year, Welch from this year, Kcazur, Light and Volmer. I think the wild card no one talks about is LeVoir at 6'7" and 310lbs. He has played in 26 games for the Pats in the last two years and has had 2 starts. I was surprised at those stats myself. He played the TE blocking role most of last year but it seems Dante likes this kid. Could he get more playing time?

    Bussey is interesting but wound up on IR, but in 2008 he was ranked as All Big East in both Guard and Tackle while at Louisville.This is make and break year for him.

    They won't keep six tackles. Drop two and pick up Gaither?

    The reason can be got is becuase his team wants to get rid of him because of injury and performance.they might add a tackle later if

    1)Vollmer continues to struggle and has issues going back to his pre concussion form .

    2)Teams are targetting him as the houston and some other teams did towards the end of the season post concussion.He just was not himself.

    3)Light came back from injury and had a very good season so i am worried to replace a LT who has been good for long and last year with vollmer who once he came back was not himself.

    the decision is if vollmer preconcussion play which was awesome just a good run of few games and not his regular stuff.I thought levoir was good and even the year before solid. sorry but for me a linema who has concussion issue is scary .

    You can never have too many quality linemen.

    depending on what we'd have to give up, I'd take him
