Ive read and heard several opinions on this trade. Here is my take. Saints got a good player in Max Unger. He will anchor that line and it seems like the Saints are going to go to more of a run philosophy. The 1st Round Pick they got in return was a good get as well. The downside though...
1) If they do go to more of a run philosophy, thats good news. Saints were very good at passing the football. Their problem isnt offense, its defense. Switching up to a run game makes them a worse team imo.
2) They trade Jimmy Graham. Let that sink in for a bit. Top 2 TE in the game and a player we always gameplan for. Sucks he is going to another nfc team, but we wont have to face him twice a year. Its just shocking im typing about Jimmy Graham being traded... just shows you where the Saints are as far as cap goes. Whos next?
