Saints sign Vonta Leach FB from Green Bay

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I saw this over at wdz and wanted to post it over here. It looks like this guy is pretty big and maybe can open some big holes for Bush and Deuce. http://www.fayettevillenc.com/article?id=242044...

as noted in a thread yesterday, he's worth paying for a week at least just to glean what playbook information he can share if nothing else.

another player to add to all-time wierdest names of Saints too

Conversely, Leach and Gado were deemed to be not good fits for what McCarthy is trying to accomplish in his first season with the offense.

Leach was without peer in the backfield as a punishing blocker. Yet, the Packers’ new zone-blocking scheme doesn’t require a bulldozer plowing from the fullback position. What’s more, Leach was a liability as a pass catcher

2 because Haynes needed to be cut and Joseph went IR. Sounds like Leach is a legitimate FB, better than McIntyre, who was signed before Leach was waived. I don't doubt even if they wanted McIntyre more that Leach could be brought in just for grilling this week about the Packers playbook-- all 9 pages of it.

Jeez, you're not kidding. They do sound pissed. And they have a valid reason.
