I mentioned this in the other thread about him. I think it's a blessing in disguise for him. He's a tackle away from another concussion. He's in a tough spot. A young guy with a promising career derailed by injuries. He really shouldn't play again, but how do you tell a young man whose entire life is football to stop and find something else to do that will more than likely never pay like an NFL career.

I don't necessarily disagree with you... However, Vaccarro had two concussions his rookie year as well... Just sayin

This explains why he went to the doctor (to get a second opinion). I am with socbe7, this is (for lack of a better term) a mercy kill. The Saints are doing Swann a favor as he is one concussion away from having his brain go to mush. Hard to enjoy that money when you can't remember what your spending it on.

What happened with Crawley? I thought he had a decent camp.

Crawley wasn't cut, was he?

I would love to have one single season where we don't have an onslaught of catastrophic injuries at the CB position.

I have a lot of confidence in Williams. Once he starts to turn his head around I think he'll be even better than Keenan was for us (hot take). Where it gets tricky is the nickel CB. We can always use Vaccaro as a slot CB when we go to dime and have Bell go to Safety but who's gonna be the nickel? I have a feeling it'll be Harris.

Crawley is fearless on run support.

Last game they took an extended look at Harris so he was playing as 4th CB, then second unit with Swann. I think nothing happened.
