Spoon Gone?

514 posts in this topic

I was worried about this when Spoon went off on twitter about the other players getting cut.

Every indication was they wanted him back, so I'm guessing that created a riff they couldn't reconcile.

I was on the fence about resigning him. His stats are average even IF he's healthy. Wouldn't mind bringing him back because he does provide our defense energy but only if the price is right.

If he joins the Saints, he's dead to me.

Well LB is a HUGE need for us. All 3 spots need upgraded.

It isn't even up for debate. They better attack this position hard in free agency and the draft.

No it means he thinks he is worth a bunch of money and he isn't

This. I was critical of what he said on Twitter, but I have no doubt this is about money, not pride. If they wanted him back before he said that, they wanted him back after. My guess is his agent said "we want $___________, and if we can't get it, he's going to test the market." And my guess is the Falcons responded "let us know how that works out for you."

I'd also wager one side or the other leaked this to pressure the other side, and that negotiations are ongoing.
