I'm looking at it also from the standpoint of the season after this. With both Franklin and Rogers

signed to 1-year contracts and for under market value - even though I don't think Franklin's contract

numbers have been disclosed - it would seem like if they'll have good to great seasons they'll have

many suitors next off-season and the Saints might be too to close to the cap limit to sign them. Therefore,

Johnson could be somebody who steps up to become a starter on next years team. I mean he's

only 26 like Ellis and if the general opinion is that Sedrick is still developing, I don't see

any reason to doubt that Johnson could do it also. Having Rogers and Franklin show how to

be a dominant DL could be just what he needs to refine his technique and training regime in order

to become that dominant young DT for years to come.



But at this point it's all wishful thinking and therefore I'm so starved for any information on

how he is performing at the camp.

Yeah I hear you. I rarely ever check out their reports... mainly when one is pointed out on this forum.

And don't even get me started on the CBS national NFL coverage.

According to Jeff Duncan's depth chart report Tom Johnson "could" make the roster and he stated

that Johnson has been "playing well" in the camp with the 2nd team, and could provide the needed

depth at the 3-tech position behind Ellis.

- Still think Six (6) Cornerbacks is a little much
- Some of the Defensive Ends can move inside to relieve Ellis/aid pass rush
- Arrington isn't making the team from the tub is getting louder
- Charles Brown may join Rookie Greg Romeus on the PUP list
- After Will Smith Suspension, may see a roster shift to give depth in another position
- Have better competition/depth at linebacker; but is it enough?
- Matt Tennant can also play guard - like Strief, versatility is good

I think FinSaint was asking about Tom Johnson; he looks solid candidate to make squad as there isn't a whole lotta 3-tech tackles on the squad; but his play has been solid, he's a little older - so there's maturity; and he has a favorable contract...
