Is it me or is it a no-brainer that the Saints bring back Jake Delhomme to backup Drew Brees?
A classy, popular former Super Bowl/Pro Bowl player who could finish his career in his home state and have a chance at a ring!
No offense to Mark Brunell who’s a great guy…but Jake would be a perfect backup to Brees and a mentor to Chase Daniel. Jake can also fill Brunell’s role as the holder on extra points and field goals.
BRING JAKE BACK HOME!!!!!
My only question: What jersey # does Delhomme wear if he rejoins the black and gold?
During his first Saints stint Delhomme wore #9…..that’s out!
Delhomme changed to jersey #12 once Billy Joe Hobart left the Saints. #12 is also out (Colston).
The Breaux Bridge resident wears #17 with the Panthers…out (Meachem).
I say assign him jersey #7. Something about a popular local player wearing the digit of a former great (Morten Andersen).
Also, ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Saints free agent linebacker Scott Fujita is in Cleveland to meet with the Browns.
Schefter says Fujita is being targeted by the Browns for his strong leadership and experience.
