The guy is from Moss Point, played at MGCJC and Southern Miss.

Could be a backup for Sed Ellis.

Anyone been to practice or heard anything about his progress in camp thus far?

Exactly, this is what we were wondering earlier here, and I personally wasn't able to find out much about him other than some mildly informative articles about the Saints signing. The Stampeders' fans seemed to have thought the world of him, but that isn't exactly saying much and how success in the CFL translates to the NFL is another thing completely. But now that I think about it, wasn't Joe Horn a CFL player before signing with the Saints?

Anyway, I would also appreciate any information on him, since he could really provide the Saints proper 3-tech rotation coupled with Ellis.

Here's his CFL highlight reel from the 1st page:

I don't see Arrington making the cut. All reports out of camp are that he sucks compared to other guys. He won't play special teams, and I think our last receiver will have to contribute on ST. There is a new rookie who has been burning it up at receiver and Drew is singing his praises. I think we see a new guy at receiver this year.

Thats what I hear. I was kinda sweating him too. I had heard some bad stuff about him from national reports, but GW seems to be really high on him. He may be hamming it up a bit to push Porter, but even if he is close that is fine by me. Always good to see draft picks panning out.

Should be some really good battles at Defensive Back - looking at depth chart, you can see why Darren Sharper at his age/injury isn't being tenured.

Emphasis on special teams could affect several players (i.e. Ries, Arrington, Amaya, Oliver)

There is the looming suspension for Will Smith; how will that affect roster?

Got some really good, young rookie free agents.

Keep looking back at the depth accrued at DB; never in Saints hx has there been this many options...

Ivory injury could open door to him being on back end and Bell making a play for the team...

Nose Tackle depth is amazing...

Will be playing close watch to linebacker position battles...

Kreutz signing really stabilizes the offensive line...

Does the Barron and Foster signings light a fire under Brown, Strief?

Does Cam Jordan allow us to have Ellis as the only 3-tech Tackle?

With the depth on this team, you can see why more veterans are being told everybody plays special teams. This is why staff has emphasized special teams will decide who makes the roster.

Charleston resigned - Curtis Johnson cut.

The New Orleans Saints re-signed backup defensive end Jeff Charleston, who has been with the team since 2008. The 6-foot-4, 265-pounder has been an effective pass rusher in spurts. He had three sacks and two forced fumbles last season.

To make room, the Saints released defensive end Curtis Johnson.
