Who are your favorite longshots?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I have a few. Joique Bell - He's having a PT (rookie) type camp. I think he may be the reason Lynell was released. Joe Morgan - I'm hearing he's a poor man's version of DeShean Jackson. He's impressing so ...

Who are your favorite longshots?

I have a few.

Joique Bell - He's having a PT (rookie) type camp. I think he may be the reason Lynell was released.

Joe Morgan - I'm hearing he's a poor man's version of DeShean Jackson. He's impressing so far and zero'ing in on AA's spot

Will Herring - OK, he's probably not a longshot for the roster, but is somewhat a longshot for a starting spot. I'm hearing/reding he's looked very good at SLB, as does Clint Ingram

Tyler Lorenzen - He's put on about 30 pounds, and Drew said he's one of the most improved players from last year. Could be our #3 TE.

Well I have no idea since I really don't get to pick up much news on the team so. I'll have to take your word on this one

One of the two rookie WR's that's been making noise in camp. Other than that, I just don't think there's many spots that are actually available.

Normally I'd agree, but as awful as special teams were last year, and all these young guys we signed who excell at special teams, I think we may have a mini-youth movement going on.

Herring, Bussey, Amaya, Hall, Morgan, McDaniel, Bell, should all give our back-ups a run for their spot because of their special teams abilities.

Lorenzen was a former QB, I reckon .... I can just imagine some nifty SP trick plays with a guy like that....
neugey and homerj07 like this.

I had McDaniel, Herring, and Amaya making the roster... which is why I didn't consider them as long shot favorites. I'm just not overly excited about the rest of them... not even the Morgan/Fayson.

I do want to see what this Bell kid is all about... you guys have been talking about him since last year. I'd like to see what all this hype on Junior is all about also.

Arrington, if he can stay healthy. My guys are already gone. I thought Carl Johnson could make the roster as a guard and C.J. Gable at least had a chance to make the practice squad.

I haven't seen any of these guys play or practice. So I have no real opinion. I do like what I've been reading about Herring. And I've got a soft spot for Bussey because of his freak injury history and the fact that he dropped so low in the draft because of unusual cicumstances.
