Free agent LT Jermon Bushrod is "50-50" to re-sign with the Saints.
Per SI's Peter King, Bushrod's Saints future could depend on Jonathan Vilma and Will Smith restructuring their deals. If it's Vilma and Smith holding the Saints back from keeping Drew Brees' blindside protector, it's shocking one or both haven't been cut loose already. Bushrod is far more important to the Saints' 2013 chances. Neither Vilma nor Smith is a fit for New Orleans' new 3-4 defense.
