Saints sign former Giants DT Jay Bromley

Defenderdawg : 5/14/2018 1:57 pm
New Orleans had been looking to add another defensive tackle to a rotation that primarily included Sheldon Rankins, David Onyemata and Tyeler Davison last year. After promising second-year player Mitchell Loewen was injured, a string of veterans handled the No. 4 spot at the position, but all ended up suffering an injury.

Bromley will now have a chance to prove he can help the Saints in spurts this fall.

He has dealt with a lot in his life to get to this point.

We did lose a couple players to other teams even if Westburg wasn't a priority to resign.

Did Jay Bromley just sign with a team before

Jonathan Hankins?
Good for him.

Wait until you see the numbers before you pass judgement
Does This Signing Help With The Comp Picks?  
Trainmaster : 5/14/2018 3:28 pm : link
I assume any effect would be small.
No comparison in talent between Bromley and Hankins.  
TMS : 5/14/2018 3:39 pm : link
Hankins was a great pick by Reese just like Joseph was. Bromley was similar to the Austin pick. Wish him luck though. He tried hard but not NFL talent.

Exactly. I assume Bromley signed a very small contract.

I wish Bromley well. He grew up a Giants fan and got to play for his favorite team. How many people get to do that? Now he's in the business phase -- time to scratch and claw, make some money and try to sustain his career. It's week to week for him now, unless he raises his game. Which, you know, is still possible.

That is sad ...
Best off luck

From what Iíve read, heís a great guy who came from a tough background. And heís a local guy so I wish him well.

That said, damn we should have taken Gabe Jackson with that pick!
Jay is an awesome young man and a hard worker

he never seemed like he wanted it enough . Those that deride Reese drafting him , while praising Gettleman selecting Hill are out of their minds. Bromley and Hill are matched talents . Hill was playing with a great player in college on his DLine. Bromley had no such advantage , but they have a similar skill set .
Hill plays like Bromley?

third round pick to a fifth round pick, brilliant.
Iím absolutely thrilled for Bromley  
djm : 5/14/2018 8:05 pm : link
Iíve said here a few times I met and talked with him briefly on few occasions at the gym in my town. The guy couldnít be nicer. Last few weeks seeing him I didnít even want to talk football with him as Iím sure he must have been pretty down. Hope I see him tomorrow there just to congrats. Cool story bro.

Except that Hill is a little bit bigger, a lot stronger, and more athletic. In addition, using NFL.com as a guide, Bromley (whom I did like) was drafted one or two rounds earlier than projected, and was pegged as at best a rotational DT. Hill was drafted exactly where they figured he'd be, with a chance to become a starter.

But, yeah, other than that, very similar. So keep posting it. Maybe someone else besides you will come to believe it.

Nope another reach by Reese in the third round no less, Glad they are both history and we can move on at last. Reese was more incompetent than Bromley but unfortunately lasted longer. Did Reese or Ross get jobs yet, thought not.

Does it matter? He's gone now.

But, since you asked...

Doomster : 5/15/2018 8:14 am : link
he did make some plays over a four year span.....3 minutes of film.....47 tackles in 4 years....less than one per game? I must have been getting a beer and missed some of those...

I wonder how long, the non plays that he made, film would be?

But I do stand corrected.....
