Saints sign Mario Edwards

Jay on the Island : 3/15/2019 1:59 pm
The Saints have added another defensive lineman.

Per a league source, the Saints will sign Mario Edwards to a two-year, $5 million contract. He can earn another $1.5 million based on sacks.

Edwards, a second-round pick of the Raiders in 2015, spent three years with the Raiders and one with the Giants. He has 7.5 career sacks.

Not a bad deal for the saints

Dude is good depth, but not a difference maker. Not a big loss imo.
Good

He was good depth last year.
Pissed about this signing and...  
M.S. : 3/15/2019 2:05 pm : link

...B.W. Webb.

Don't we want to keep guys from our shit Defense that played well?

WTF?
Hopefully Kerry Wynn signs with someone next

the more FA's the Giants lose the better their odds of receiving comp picks.

People might complain about trading Beckham away, but really wasn't letting Webb walk the bigger loss?

Not at those levels. Giants got a career year out of Webb. That's exactly the type of guy you let go off.

Edwards was solid, but I'd bet they can find someone comparable in the draft of for less money.

Edwards seems like he will be right around the border of 7th Round versus nothing depending on playing time and such. A few too many brain dead plays, but gave a lot of effort. Hopefully McIntosh can fill that role this coming year.
On the bright side

the Giants finally have/had guys on their roster that another team would take.

Just joshing around. I thought you started it...
For a crappy team  
DavidinBMNY : 3/15/2019 2:26 pm : link
They sure have had a number of players signed away. Collins, Edwards, Brown, Webb. And those guys all count towards comp picks and two of them were in season pick ups.


Belichick 2.0.

If only someone would sign Curtis Riley :-) (jk)

Ha... too funny! I was actually serious. As for the OBJ trade, that's an entirely different level, and for what it's worth I was really pissed about trading him. I've calmed down about it, but now these "smaller" free agency loses are beginning to piss me off. I actually liked these two players!

Sorry I misread the op, I thought the Giants resigned him...
Just to update the compensation game  
SJGiant : 3/15/2019 2:32 pm : link
Which I know means very little but itís there to watch, itís 4 to 2 after 2 innings. First inning is the tamper period and the second inning is the first two days of free agency. Donít ask me what the rest of the innings are.
We need DL badly  
DavidinBMNY : 3/15/2019 2:58 pm : link
So Mauro and Edwards were both signed. Who do they have behind the starters? Very thin position on the roster. They have no depth to speak of on the DL.
You can get an Edwards level player  
giants#1 : 3/15/2019 3:04 pm : link
after training camp cuts. That's where they got him.

As for current depth, they're definitely pretty thin right now with really just DT, Hill, McIntosh, but I'm sure we'll see a vet or two signed in the next couple weeks (a la Mauro last year) and then some depth added in the draft.
