Level of interest and Kicking tires doesn't sound that strong to me.

Lol...the Colts have been mentioned as having interest in almost every high level FA that has come available.

I'm not really surprised here.  I can see Ballard viewing him as a similar player to Houston at the same juncture in their careers.  I can see us making him a very good offer close to Houston's.  If he wants him I hope Ballard get's him.

If I had to guess, I'd say we offer a 2 year 25 mil contract with 13 g in the first year

I'd say that's a little high. He was due to make 13 million and typically when older guys are cut for cost savings, they usually don't sign for near the same amount.

Its basically a one year deal if we don't like what we see after one year

I’d be careful with the legitimacy of some accounts on Twitter. I tend to look at verification by their name or the RT and fav count and he has neither of the two. We are in fact interested or maybe intrigued from what I’ve seen from verified accounts but reached out we don’t know as of yet.

Mike Chappell and Joel A. Erickson have both discussed it

I get it. How nice it would be if this then, was the only thread. My comment was as much about how ALL those thousands of posts about players who were never even in our zip code were fan guppies being hooked by a media bait and hook, then it was about this thread being non legitimate. :cheers:

True, but more creditable outlets are fluting the same thing.

I think that is high. I would say 2 years at around 20 .

I can't see him taking that especially with someone like the browns that would outbid that contract easily imo

"level of interest" and "kicking the tires" are what sources are going to say to maintain some sort of leverage.  The leak isn't going to say "going all in for".

 

We have the cap space with a lot of rookie deals not falling off for 3 and 4 years.  It's not my money -- go get him GMCB!

If we get him my Super Bowl aspirations would ratchet up a notch.  Houston , Funchess and possibly McCoy.   Those three are potential difference makers.  Fans are already excited about our team.  If we get McCoy we should move up the list as one of the SB favorites IMO.

Passing situation with a 4 man line consisting of Sheard, Autry, Mcoy, and Houston ain't bad at all.  Sign him up!

That's a combo that would make any QB feel antsy trying to drop back.

Then behind that is the young boys and Margus Hunt.  Turay, Banogu, Tyquan Lewis, Muhammad.  Not bad at all.

Drew Bree says he wants Mcoy on the Saints:

 

It’s no secret that the relationship between New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy is strong. They regularly train together in the offseason and are very familiar with each other’s talents on the field. When asked by Andrew Clay of KATC-TV how he’d feel about the prospect of McCoy signing with the Saints as a free agent, Brees was all smiles.

 

He’s a stud, he’s a great player,” Brees grinned. “I mean you’re basically asking me if I would love having a Pro Bowl defensive tackle that I’ve spent the last eight years trying to run around and avoid, not have hit me, join our team. Yeah of course.”

 

 

https://saintswire.usatoday.com/2019/05/22/saints-drew-brees-gerald-mccoy-cut-bucs-free-agent/

 

 

Something tells me he's going to end up being too far outside of our valuation when it gets down to the money.

It should be.  

 

Last time we signed a quality DT from Tampa...we won it all...in Miami.  We all know where the Super Bowl is being played this year.  Let’s get it done Ballard.

An interior pass rusher that can provide pressure up the middle.   With a little more size than most of our other options sans Stewart.  That’s all I’ve been asking for...I’d love this signing if it happens. Would address our most glaring remaining concern.

I'd be very surprised if the bidding surpasses the money Houston got during the first wave of free agency...and I would think we'd pay that.  If he is limiting his search to a contender, then that eliminates a lot of the teams that have the cap space remaining to bid 8 figures.  The Saints certainly don't have that kind of space without fancy footwork.

Legit playoff teams with scheme and cap space to accomodate McCoy:

Colts

Browns (risky)

Seahawks

Eagles (set at DT)

Cowboys

Chiefs (barely)

 

Looks like a 3 team race to me.

I'm 100% all in on signing Gerald McCoy. 

 

Also, despite all the hype surrounding the Browns, I still think they are a year or two away from being actual contenders.

IMHO, Sheard isn't a good pass rusher. I'd rather have one of the young bucks pass rushing (Lewis, Turray, Banago, etc.)
