McPherson works on punt return drills

Brett Martel, of the Associated Press, reports New Orleans Saints QB Adrian McPherson worked on punt return drills Saturday, July 29. Head coach Sean Payton was impressed with his progress at quarterback, but does not want to see him go to waste if he can't work his way to become the team's No. 2 quarterback. Payton said, "I want to see him do a lot of things. He's a great athlete. He might be the best athlete on the team. To give a guy a full opportunity to make the team, it would be smart of me to see him do some things other than just take snaps. Can he catch the ball at receiver, can he return punts, can he cover? Because the more he can do, the better his chances are for making the team."

There's a reason he changed his number to 1. That's a wide out's number. look out devery and chase, he might take that number 5 spot

Has he kept his nose clean since signing on? No off the field problems? I haven't heard of anything. But then I've been out of touch this off-season.

It was only a matter of time before we tried him in a slash role.

I'd hate to lose him. I'm still excited about the kid's potential.
