New Orleans Saints notes: QB Greg Paulus on bubble

By James Varney, The Times-Picayune

When the New Orleans Saints launch into another organized team activity┬ Monday morning - one that will be held indoors - the roster might have dwindled. That's because decisions were looming on some players who had been invited to minicamp on a tryout basis, Coach Sean Payton said.
Payton said some of those decisions might be announced when they were made, but as of Sunday evening the franchise had not released any names. One prominent player on that bubble, however, would be quarterback Greg Paulus.

The Saints obviously like Paulus, whom they first invited to their rookie camp last month. He appears to handle himself well on the field and he clearly possesses some of those intangible personality traits Payton values highly in his quarterbacks.

But the Saints drafted a quarterback in April, and last year the team only kept two signal-callers active on its roster. Chase Daniel, who ran the Saints practice squad in 2009 as the third quarterback, showed no reason he should drop on the depth chart at minicamp and there is always the possibility the Saints will still sign a veteran backup as the calendar moves toward the July 29 training camp opener.

In other words, there are more guys wearing red jerseys at practice than the Saints are going to have in a couple of months.

Payton diplomatically avoided the issue, however, when asked about Paulus.
"He did well," Payton said. "He's someone that gets us in and out of the huddle. He has quickly picked up on what we're doing. I think he's a good decision maker. I'm glad he was back. We saw some good things in the rookie minicamp and again in this camp. He gets limited reps, but he's someone that can handle everything you're installing and take it to the field."

Injury report
For the second straight day, second-year man Malcolm Jenkins did not participate. Jenkins, drafted as a cornerback out of Ohio State in the first round last year, opened minicamp running with the first team at safety, but he injured his knee in the Friday afternoon session has not been seen on the field since.
Payton described it as a day-to-day issue determined by swelling. Most important, he said, was the diagnosis it was only a bruise.
Receivers Devery Henderson and Robert Meachem were again held out of most drills. Henderson is recuperating from a sports hernia procedure and he is obviously very close to a full return. He did do walk-throughs with the first unit at the beginning of each practice session.
Meachem, however, is more problematic. He is clearly hobbled by the toe surgery he had last month and didn't offer a particularly optimistic take on his return. Meachem, like defensive end Jimmy Wilkerson, coming off ACL surgery at the end of the 2009 season, and safety Darren Sharper, who has been at the Saints facility throughout mini-camp and on the sidelines during practices, are all expected to be a full strength when┬ training camp opens next month.

He seems to be the kind of guy you'd like to give a shot to, but that won't happen in NO. He will be lucky if he is released and allowed to hook-up with a team that really needs a QB...like the Browns, for example.

Incredible, even after Reggie and his squeeze?
