It's so much nicer, to me atleast, to be able to sign guys to play the DL in a different system than previous.

I don't know why.

I am fricken thrilled with what he may bring. He was a stud at Texas, thought he would go earlier than the 4th round.

The Saints run defense was ranked No.1 last year. Okafor was a part of that, so thereís more to it than sack numbers.

:-) OUCH!

Okafor is a pretty tough dude. Never quits. Was a work out warrior in college and that had carried over to the pros. Very good work ethic. He'll help the Chiefs. Dont really know what to think about the cost until we see how its structured. But this guy can play.

$6M a year isnít bad. We need players. He could start, so thatís good value more than likely.

Now where is Darby.

Police responded and after discovering the warrant, Okafor then ran on foot and was finally caught, taken down by three officers, and arrested.
Took 3 officers to bring him down. Most of the other DEs we were thinking of signing were brought down by 2 cops. I like his moxie.

Remember Reid interviewed their DC Dennis Allen before hiring Spags. So just in that way you get an idea what they look for in the weak side DE. And he fits the mold of the strong pursuit, high motor relentless type players Veach has brought up since the Speaks pick. Itís not flashy and lightning first step but itís a solid rotational piece. And they do need a veteran as they tear down the old D and build it back up.

That's a fact I can get behind

4 sacks in 16 games is no great shakes, but sacks aren't everything... this run D is in desperate need of improvement

Great. We got Tyson Jackson without spending the THIRD OVERALL pick on him.

I don't know much about him, but he sounds young enough and solid enough (but not flashy). Pair him with a draft pick and let them fight it out.

Seems to use his hands really well. Looks like a taller, step-slower version of Justin Houston.
