Re: Saints to work out Spicer and Wright

Spicer, 34, spent the entire offseason with the Saints after signing as a free agent. But he was released on the final cut-down day when the team learned it would not lose starting defensive ends Will Smith and Charles Grant to four-game suspensions. Chance are, the Saints wanted to see what kind of shape the 6-4, 295-pounder is in two months later.
Wright, 25, spent three seasons with the Miami Dolphins, starting nine games and playing in 13 in 2007.
The Saints have not ruled Clancy out of this week's game against Carolina, but he missed practice Wednesday and Thursday after experiencing some swelling in his knee. Another option would be promoting second-year pro DeMario Pressley from the practice squad.

We need some serious depth on the D line. I hope we sign some people soon.

Take Pressley...give the guy a chance to play. Ofcourse, Spicer is a good solid vet...but he's kinda long in the tooth.

Re: Saints to work out Spicer and Wright

As Qbrees said, Hartley has a bum ankle so they probably want to hold onto Carney for another week, so there's probably not another guy they want to cut yet to make room for Pressley.

Look for Pressley to be added next week, unless there's a change in Hartley's ankle either good or bad.
