Details On Near Cofield Trade

Mike Garafolo–as always– has the details on the almost trade of Barry Cofield to the Saints. Garafolo says the Giants weren’t openly trying to trade Cofield; the Saints made an offer they couldn’t refuse. The Saints offered the G-Men the last pick of the 2nd round, 64th overall. The Saints took USC offensive tackle Charles Brown. The Giants were ready to trade Cofield, according to Garafolo, but Cofield and the Saints couldn’t agree on a contract.

Garafolo notes that Cofield isn’t on the block. I wonder if the Saints would try to re-visit the deal, but with contract breakdowns, I’m not sure they will.

Would you have traded Cofield? Who would you have selected with the 64th pick?

    Love the site.. first time in the comments.

    I would have taken the deal. Joseph has been impressive and we have Canty to play the other DT. Slight rick losing both Robbins and Cofield in the same off season.. but I would take it.

    Charles Brown wouldn’t be a bad pick at that point… O Line Depth. Future starter.
    Also Ed Dickson from Oregon was the best player avaiable according to Mel, I think.
    If they had taken a safety with that pick.. they could have used the Jones pick to get:
    Donald Butler. Bowman. Bruce Campbell.

    Mike Garafalo’s article says that they had the deal done a few picks before there 2nd round pick, If thats true then I think they would’ve traded that pick to move up to get someone they wanted.

      I think you’re bang on Sam. Too bad they couldn’t have swung this deal and moved up for McLain. I like Cofield but he’s on borrowed time w Joseph in the fold.
