Saints are in the process of acquiring Chris McCain from the Dolphins. I saw it on twitter. It's not official yet.
Is he a good fit?

PFF graded him pretty poorly in 2015 when he only played 43 snaps. Whatever that's worth.

I read this tidbit about him: "08/28/16 - DE Chris McCain, who appeared to be settling in as a pass rusher, hasn't yet earned a spot on the roster at a crowded position. There's a chance McCain is good enough at special teams to earn a roster spot but that'll be a close battle."

Also this article says they wanted him to play LB, but he didn't win the job, so they moved him to DE. It appears he's a bottom of the depth chart signing.

Let me be the first to say it...Can he play Guard? Seriously though this is likely for Special Teams which means Lasco could be headed for IR.

I wish we would trade for a Offensive lineman
Yeah you'd think we'd be looking to make a move for a Guard. Sometimes it feels like the FO is trolling Saints Report. We have needs along the O Line so they promptly make a move for fringe DE.

They are either trolling us, they are happy with what they have, or they are just too stubborn to admit there's a problem with the O Line.

Lasco practiced today. Idk what this move is about but it's likely unrelated to him. Maybe he has some real pass rush ability that they want to unleash. Who knows.

I wonder if he's any better than Gwachum.
