@michaelboldiga yea they will wait until Monday when all the media is in Foxboro

Chargers finalist for DC job that went to Gus Bradley was their DB coach Ron Milus. Had Bradley not opted for Chargers, Milus was their man.

Gus Bradley was big defensive coordinator domino multiple teams were waiting on. Now that he's a Charger, other teams will move quick.

Former Jaguars HC Gus Bradley has agreed to become DC for then Los Angeles Chargers, per sources.

    There's no secret that I want and expect Donnie Edwards playing at ILB next year. However, a cheaper option, and younger, would be Courtney Watson of the Saints.

    I was really high on him out of Notre Dame his draft year. He's a misfit in the Saints 4-3.

    The Saints have actively been trying to trade him, and not for a premium pick or player. They actually traded him to Miami a few weeks ago for a guy who was a misfit, underachiever in Miami, but the trade was undone when the other guy (Moore) failed his physical. So Saban certainly sees Watson's value.

    Watson was a highly productive player at a top NCAA program, and would be a natural fit into the BB 3-4. If the Saints were willing to trade him for another team's trash (Not meant to be mean. More like "spare parts"), is there any reason we couldn't trade Klecko to get him? Klecko would be a useful defensive lineman there. It would be an example of two teams swapping players who don't fit their systems.

    I think he would be a great addition if Edwards doesn't come here, or even if he does.

    That might not be a bad option. He's been a disappointment to the Saints, but it may be that he doesn't fit their D, just like you said. Of course to trade Klecko for him would require the Saints having an interest in Klecko. Not sure if that would be the case... (don't ever try to sell a Saints fan on a D-Lineman. they think they've got the best D-Line in the league and they'll rip anyone who even suggests they would need another one).

    Anyway, if the Pats could get someone like Watson cheap, I'd be happy to see them give him a shot. Maybe we could dump Bethel on them for Watson.

    I don't think we should give up on Bethel yet, let's wait until mid August anyway.

    For half a split second (while looking at only the thread title) I actually found myself wondering if Courtney was Ben's sister. WTF it must be the offseason.

    Was Watson in the 2003 or 2004 draft class?

    Why wasn't Watson taken instead of Sullivan?

    Well didn't you say it yourself... he failed his physical so a trade was nixed? If there's something physically wrong with the guy I don't want somebody else's damaged goods.

    Sullivan might have motivational issues, but he is healthy as far as I know. Besides I think an athletic 320+ pound DL guy is more valuable than a damaged linebacker. JMO.

    Watson didn't fail his physical, the other guy did. No damaged goods to speak of.

    Okay must have misread that thanks.

    Anyways I have high hopes for Mincey and Roach. Also don't forget that TBC and Claridge will be in the mix.

    And these guys are all competing for backup jobs since I think Beisel has the 4th linebacker spot nailed down barring a disastrous showing at training camp.

    I note a recent DUI arrest, perhaps not a killer after the Warfield signing, but a yellow card at least. We'll just have to see how he does with Ralphie pooring the drinks.
