After talking with New Orleans Saints coaches and front office personnel throughout the past week, one name seems to be coming up again and again - Stanley Arnoux.

Stanley Arnoux is starting to get noticed by the New Orleans Saints coaches.
This was supposed to be a "redshirt freshman" season for the second-year linebacker, who missed the entire 2009 season after tearing his Achilles tendon during the first day of rookie minicamp. But the fourth-round draft pick out of Wake Forest is looking more like a player who could contribute early on special teams and as a situational backup.
"I'm having a great time," said Arnoux, who said he has no complaints about the heat and humidity and long days. "It's a lot better than being stuck inside."
Arnoux (6 feet, 232 pounds) is still buried on the depth chart somewhat, working as the third-string weakside linebacker. And the guy in front of him - second-year linebacker Jonathan Casillas - is another young player who has earned praise for his development this offseason.
But the Saints have been rotating their linebackers around quite a bit in camp, and both Casillas and Arnoux have taken advantage of extra practice snaps while starter Scott Shanle has been out with a knee injury the past few days.
On Thursday afternoon, Casillas was credited with sacking quarterback Drew Brees on a blitz during the first-string two-minute drill. Then Arnoux followed with a sack of his own on a blitz with the second team against quarterback Patrick Ramsey.
Earlier this week, Arnoux forced a fumble, stripping tailback P.J. Hill. On Friday, Arnoux was at it again, leveling fullback Zak Keasey to break up a pass attempt.
"I'm just out here trying to get better every day," Arnoux said. "As long as I'm fixing something every day, that's the kind of camp I want to have."
