Watson/Euhus (Pro Football Weekly)

Watson gets wish, is dealt to Bills



PFW asks associate editor Jeff Reynolds for his take on the NFL’s hottest topics.

Saints swap another defender, send Watson to Buffalo for TE Euhus

New Orleans traded LB Courtney Watson to the Bills for TE Tim Euhus on Tuesday, pending each player passing his physical. The latter is an important notation. The Saints agreed to deal Watson to the Dolphins earlier in the offseason, but LB Eddie Moore failed his Saints physical, canceling the trade. Euhus and Watson didn’t figure prominently with their soon-to-be former teams. The Saints' acquisition of Euhus comes shortly after their signing of former Texans and Browns TE Billy Miller.



PFW: Which player has the potential to help his new team more?

Reynolds: Both begin as backups with their new clubs. The Saints had Euhus scouted well after signing ex-Bills TE Mark Campbell as a free agent. Both are better blockers than receivers. With the sudden depth behind Ernie Conwell and Zach Hilton, the Saints seem to be leaning toward using more of a two-TE base offense. Head coach Sean Payton used the formation at times in Dallas with Dan Campbell flanking Jason Witten. Watson can push for playing time with the Bills, but he’ll start out as a backup inside behind London Fletcher. Watson suffered a knee injury and missed the final seven games of last season. He’s apparently healthy, having passed his physical with the Dolphins last month. But the Bills have quite a crowd at the LB spots. Besides Fletcher, the Bills are counting on WLB Takeo Spikes to return to full strength on the heels of an Achilles injury that cut short his 2005 season, and they are hopeful that SLB James Posey can rebound from a down year. If not, head coach Dick Jauron won’t be shy about trying Watson outside, or Angelo Crowell, a better fit on the weak side who played well last season, could be moved into the starting mix.
