With ozigbo being cut, I wonder if they're thinking about bringing Zenner in for a look or if they just really like Washington
Washington might end up being the ST captain if Robertson is out for any substantial amount of time. He led thre league in ST tackles before he got concussed on that cheap shot. Still haven't heard about a fine for that punk who had two personal foul cheap shots.

So, the Saints front office thinks that they cannot afford to release Ken Crawley at the expense of waiving Emmanuel Butler...

I usually trust the Saints brain trust, but Crawley is not worth a roster spot, especially if it means exposing a young talented player to the waiver wire.

This may be a dumb question but...who’s our PS QB? Does Taysom run the PS offense? Will Sean bring in a 4th arm? Find out on the next episode of Glee.
The practice squad practices with the whole team, they just don't get many reps.

When has that ever happened? And if so, I'm sure the coaches have thought about all contingencies plans.
The last few games last season, both Peat and Armstead were way below 100% and it showed. That's what started all the "demise of Drew Brees" articles we saw this off-season.

One is an NFL starter, a year removed from a really great season, the other is a udfa wr who hasn't really shown much with the lights on. And you're wondering why we're exposing him to waivers over cutting Crawley? No one is picking up Butler off waivers.

In the distant past we were wondering how many players would be claimed to round out a pathetic, 53 player roster.

Now we stress over having so much talent that other teams might claim some of it for themselves.

I hope that the Saints can keep Ozigbo, Butler, Lil'Jordan, Arnold, and others, but it's a very nice problem to have.

No I’m saying you can’t compare the running back and receiver position cause one never really has more than one of the field and the other could have up to 5
What? I have no idea what you are trying to say.

The morning sunshine (Butler) did not make the 53! Gotta do it when the lights come on. He didn’t. Maybe he’ll develop on PS. He was a morning glory.
I'll bet if he makes it to the PS that he'd be one of the first considered to be called up. And I think he'll make the PS.

The Saints didn’t keep 2 TEs, they kept 3

The Saints didn’t keep 6 WRs, they kept 7

The Saints didn’t keep 3 RBs, they kept 4

The Saints didn’t keep 1 KR, they kept 2

See, the Saints have something that no other team in the NFL has ever had... it’s called a Taysom Hill 😉

Happy with the moves. Sean and the front office have had a good eye for talent the last couple years.

Yes. Because like someone pointed out in the immortal words of Jim Mora earlier, "You think you know. But you don't know."

Along with the injury in week 13 or thereabouts to Max. He was not the same the last quarter of season.

I do think that made the decision to keep two TE on the roster easier. The top "position" he played last year was TE.

I've got to figure that Mack will clear waivers. Arnold might. If both go on the PS, we don't really need anyone else.

I hear ya. But the TE part is a stretch. No one would think he's in there to possibly have to block a DE one on one (if lined up tight, of course.)
