Is this the Brandon browner of offensive linemen?

Edit: I keep forgetting that we've signed and released him at least a couple times now this year. What gives?

The Saints always play musical chairs with the bottom of the roster and practice squad.

A few years back we had a QB named Sean Canfield .... We used to sign him over the weekend and then release him the coming Monday or Tuesday ....We are doing the exact same thing these days with Barnes ...

The old story goes that Jimi Hendrix's dad would work all week, get paid on Friday, and go "buy" a guitar at the pawn shop. Young Jimi would play gigs that weekend to earn some extra money for the family. Then on Monday, dad would "sell" the guitar back to the pawn shop so that the family would have money for the week.

I have no idea if this is a true story, but I nominate "Jimi's guitar" as the nickname for the player each year that the Saints play this roster shuffle with.
