I don't know about that speed. It's been a few years but I think he ran a 4.6 40 and there were talks about making him into a safety.

Re: Saints Sign CB Marcus McCauley

No kidding... I must have him confused with someone else. I thought it was his speed that made his draft stock drop.

Re: Saints Sign CB Marcus McCauley

I think its perfect to bring in some people and see if they are hungry to play. You come in do what GW wants or needs, make plays and you have a job. Don't cut you next week. We got a younger player who may develop and play ST's. Curious to see how this pans out.

Re: Saints Sign CB Marcus McCauley

Its a cut throat business, but I agree with others that it does throw off the rhythm in the team to keep switching guys in and out. I think we are a no nonsense team this year and if you arent cutting the mustard we part ways with you. This is beautiful because this is how championship caliber teams think.

All of these goodies + size and strength, and the guy still can't find a home? There's gotta be something else going on... We've been pretty lucky rolling the dice lately, at what point are we going to crap out? I hope he works out and can plug the gaps until we are healed.

Re: Saints Sign CB Marcus McCauley

I wonder what went wrong with McCauley at Minnesota? He was projected to possibly be a 1st rounder and he went in the third. Our FO has given us some nice talent to work with that hadn't worked out some where else. Let's hope he's a diamond in the rough and we can do good things with him.

Re: Saints Sign CB Marcus McCauley

Guys, if I remember correctly, this was a kid that we discussed leading up to the draft as somebody that a lot of people wanted. He was a really good player at Fresno State.

Yes he got some attention lets hope the goons that had him didn't know what they had and GW can coach him up and make him an all-pro.
