Memo to Saints: Just don't do it

There has been an ESPN report that the New York Jets want USC quarterback Matt Leinart to come in for a workout.

The Jets own the fourth pick of the draft. To draft Leinart, they'll have to trade up, probably to the No. 2 picked owned by --- your New Orleans Saints.

Memo to the Saints: don't do it.

You've got one chance at a franchise quarterback, one chance at a player who can be the face of the franchise's rebuilding, don't blow it. There is NOTHING on the Jets roster worth making that trade.

ESPN Radio's Colin Cowherd suggested the league needs Leinart in New York. No, the league already has Eli Manning in New York. Cowherd said if the Saints are "gracious'' they'll trade the pick. Dude, the Saints have been gracious for nearly 40 years. As for his statement that the team doesn't know where it will play, I guess ESPN Radio doesn't get the AP wire. They'll be in the Dome again in September.

Matt Leinart was quite well known for how much he loved the nightlife and the ladies of L.A. following his taking home the Heisman Trophy.

Sounds like a man just made for The Big Easy!

Wait a minute ... the Saints dont have to INTENTIONALLY keel over to make the rest of the NFL successful. They already do that without an effort.
