Talman Gardner

I spoke with his cousin Thursday at little league practice, and picked his brain.

He said the Saints have high hopes for him. He was kept instead of Kelly because he was bigger, faster, and had more potential to develop into a serious weapon.

He said Talman really like Haz. He said players know the difference between and X-O type coach and an Ex-player. They really respect the ex-player types.

He said Talman really like the new WR coach. Look for the WR's to be improved.

Talman's main off-field probs are due to him not wanting to turn his back on his old loser friends. He needs to break the ties with the guys who have nothing to offer him but trouble.

He said if you ever met M.Lewis, you would never belive he was a football player. He is so tiny, but built like a light-middleweight boxer.

He is also quite aware the only reason Haz drafted him was because he is from NO, and hopes his family can keep him out of trouble.

He's working more on catching with his hands instead of his body this off-season. Hopefully less drops.

I think he can develop into a solid WR if he gets his head straight and irons out some fundamentals.

Jimbone...but Danno was saying he talked to Talman Gardner\'s cousin at little league practice. As far a Michael Lewis being so small, it\'s true...Jimbone and me worked for the Saints during training camp (we were security, but all we did was watch practice on the field). It\'s hard to describe how small Lewis actually is because it\'s almost unreal. The guy is listed at 165 I believe, not sure, but looks smaller than that

I don\'t think Gardner is as bad as Ojo. Yeah, he is a project like Ojo was. I can see him having sucess in this league if he gets it together. He was productive at a much bigger school than Ojo went to. Was a projected second rounder before he got busted. He has much more talent than Ojo did. This guy could be a good player, but it is up to him to work at it.

I worked with one of Talman\'s cousin about a year ago. He was an inmate at Hunt Correctional who cleaned our office for 8 cents an hour... No joke.

Gardner will get his chance this season to prove what he can do. So, Boogro what\'s shaking?

The Garnder-Ojo comparison is a joke. Ojo was a project and was never expected to develop. Gardner was a stud at Florida State and he is a ballplayer. He had a terrible rookie season but he will pan out. Ojo...I used to like him.

Ojo is overrated.

I think that Gardner\'s future role with the Saints will be determined in camp, along with any rookies or free agents we have. He has a great shot, especially if something does transpire with a possible draft day trade of Stallworth or Horn or both. Personally, I would love to see Stallworth traded for high 2nd and we get Clayton (I think he\'ll slip on draft day) or Jenkins from Ohio St. Stallworth is blazingly fast, but Donte \"Streetclothes\" never plays, even if he\'s healthy enough. This organization can\'t utilize his attributes if he\'s always on the sideline.
