New Orleans Saints Q&A: receiver Adrian Arrington

Adrian Arrington is a wide receiver in his third season with the Saints. He played college football at Michigan and was drafted in the seventh round, No. 237 overall, in the 2008 NFL draft. He missed his entire rookie season with a knee injury and spent most of the 2009 season on the practice squad. He will be a receiver the coaching staff keeps an eye on in training camp as he tries to maintain his roster spot. He recently spoke with staff writer Rachel Whittaker.

10 QUESTIONS WITH ADRIAN ARRINGTON


Who's the one figure in football you admire the most?
"Barry Sanders. I played running back for pretty much my whole life until my freshman or sophomore year in high school, so I used to love Barry Sanders."

Any pre-game superstitions?
"No routines really. My whole thing for games is, 'look good, feel good, play good.' If I go out there, and I'm looking good and feeling good, I'm ready to play."

Who was your favorite coach, high school or college?
"My favorite is definitely Lloyd Carr at Michigan. He helped me grow to be a better man, helped me learn a lot of lessons I needed to be taught. When you're a higher player on a team, you have guys looking up to you to carry yourself the right way. In my first years at Michigan, I didn't pay attention to things like that. I was a meek guy in a sense. That's one thing (Carr) helped me work on."

Who's your favorite musical artist?
"I'm definitely a rap, hip-hop and R&B kind of guy. My favorite rappers are Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Eminem, Drake, guys like that."

What's your favorite pre-game meal?
"Anything with steaks and eggs involved. I'm always into steak and eggs."

What is your best football memory?
"Being in Miami, winning Super Bowl XLIV. It was the greatest experience of my life."

Who is your biggest fan?
"My biggest fan would be my mom. I was raised in a single-mother household, so she's been by my side from Day One. I have an older sister and two older brothers on my mom's side, and on my dad's side I have two older brothers, one older sister and another sister. They definitely came to Michigan as much as they could. I'm from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, so Michigan is a lot closer than down here (in New Orleans). But they make it down here when they can."

If you weren't playing football what career would you pursue?
"NBA. I grew up a basketball player at heart. That's how I became a Michigan fan. I loved Chris Webber and the Fab Five. So I would have concentrated harder on basketball if I hadn't gotten my first scholarship offer for football as a freshman in high school. I thought football might be the way to go."

What other position would you like to play?
"I played running back a long time ago, but my frame isn't really a running back frame. I got recruited a lot coming out of high school for safety as well, so I'd say free safety."

What's your favorite sport other than football?
"Absolutely basketball. I love pro basketball, but I'm more of a March Madness guy. When March Madness comes around, I'm glued to the TV watching as many games as possible."

Re: New Orleans Saints Q&A: receiver Adrian Arrington

He's on the bubble. He's in that no man's land where expectations have not yet panned out. If he doesn't impress and stay healthy, he's going to have to fulfill his NFL legacy wearing different colors...or at best working for the minimum. Scratch that! Not even the minumum justifies lack of productivity. "Looking good" does not get the job done. A.A. is going to have to bring it - or hit the road jack - and take Jay-Z, Drake and Enima with you.

This is his year. They been hiding him on IR, they must like him. I would say he needs to step up and make the team.

This better be the year for him... or he'll be hitting the road.

Re: New Orleans Saints Q&A: receiver Adrian Arrington

Unless an injury hits, this guy has very little chance at making the roster. The Saints top 4 WR spots are set. Number 5 is slotted for return man, probably Courtney Roby right now. As the Saints proved much of last year, they will probably not go 6 deep at the position.

I say keep 6. I do not want to see Roby lining up at WR.

If Arrington is healthy he will be impressive. Can't wait til the preseason.
