FORGOTTEN MAN: Tyler Placo

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; His mistakes in Preseason were due to the fact that he was trying to make too much out of a bad situation. Can't fault a rook for that too much....

Tyler put up with a lot last year- numerous cuts, time on practice squad, undrafted. He will be a solid back-up some day.

I am surprised that we signed Brunell for 2 years
OPPS... Can a mod please fix it. You might add QB also.

I think the exact reason we brought Brunell in was because he and Palko are both lefties.

Yeah but if you wanna make it in the NFL you better make something good happen out of a bad situation or you'll be on the practice squad.

If he can pick up reading the defenses better, he's got a legit shot at making the squad. I hope he does... I really hope he does, I mean I rather him taking up a roster spot than OLD Martin.

He's like my dad's steak, needs more seasoning.

Hmmm, I wasn't even considering Martin making the team; I guess that is a possibility.
I'd be very dissappointed if we cut Palco and kept 80 years worth of backups. Is Palco even eligible for the PS this year?

ScottF - Yes, Palko should be eligible for the practice squad. I think Palko was on the active roster for four games last year, weeks 1, 2, 3 and 17:

Practice Squad Eligibility

A team may establish a practice squad of no more than eight* players who do not have an accrued season of free agency credit or who were on the 45-player active list for less than nine regular season games during their only accrued season. A player cannot participate on the practice squad for more than two seasons.

Good, hopefully he'll turn it to a player we can turn to if Brees goes down in a few years... like 6.

For no more than 2 years? That kind of stinks in a way. I mean you have to be cut from an active roster... wait to see if anyone signs you and if no one does than you can be signed to a PS.

So its possible a guy could be out of the NFL entirely if after riding the PS this season and no one signs him again and the Saints want to retain him on the PS again but can't. So they guy won't be eligible to work???

I smell a law suit in the making. You have the right to work and if a team wants to hire you... duh.
