Didn't they do the same thing last year, sign someone the Saints released?

... yeah, you can't tell me they're signing him because they were looking for someone to make an impact on the practice squad, eh? Falcons probably got ol' Mr. Spock standing by to do a 'Vulcan-mind-probe' on him the minute he reports ...

I think it has more to do with the fact that McCown played for Dirk Koetter for the last three seasons in Jacksonville. The fact that he's been with that Saints for a month is just icing on the cake.

That's a good point. He would know the offensive scheme pretty well over there. However, he didn't even play well in that system. This is definitely more about the Falcons trying to get every edge possible on the Saints. I would be shocked if he even makes the final roster. The guy is that bad.

Hey, we needed better backups. Double D is the only one that's good.

So they chose McCown over Redman? That's like replacing a pile of crap with an even bigger pile of crap.

Probably is the reason.
