    Saints | Team won't tag Bentley

    Saints | Team won't tag Bentley
    Wed, 22 Feb 2006 19:00:17 -0800

    Mike Triplett, of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, reports the New Orleans Saints are not planning to place a franchise or transition tag on free agent OC LeCharles Bentley. He almost certainly will find a new home when the NFL's free agency period begins March 3. "I'm not ruling out the idea of coming back," Bentley said. "But with that being said, New Orleans has had ample opportunity to put their bid on the table. And once the other bids start coming in, I have to make the best decision I can." He was disappointed that the team did not sign him to a long-term contract extension sooner. Bentley, who is now represented by Neil Schwartz, is expected to seek a contract similar to what the Carolina Panthers gave guard Mike Wahle last year, reportedly a five-year deal worth up to $28 million with $11.5 million in bonuses. Saints general manager Mickey Loomis also did not rule out the possibility that the Saints could re-sign Bentley, but they have allowed themselves the possibility to be outbid for his services.

    Man, that is a big chunk of change for an interior OL. But he is the best C in the market right now. IF we get him, we shouldn't expect much more through FA.

    We could sign him as a guard as well. he plays both positions very well. in adddition, dont underestimate the importance of a guy that can get back in action after taking a shot in the nuts as he proved this year.

    ramming speed to all
