A month ago, most New Orleans Saints fans had never heard of running back Travaris Cadet. But three weeks into the 2012 preseason, more Saints fans are talking about Cadet than Drew Brees. Like most running backs in New Orleans, Cadet can also run pass patterns and he can even return kicks.
New Orleans always finds outstanding running backs that went undrafted. Pierre Thomas and Chris Ivory are two other Saints running backs that NFL scouts overlooked. Today, the hot topic of conversation in New Orleans is whether Travaris Cadet can earn a spot on the deepest running back corps in the NFL.
