Saints experimenting on defensive line
1 Attachment(s)
Vitt said the Saints gave up too many big plays last season and the defense will look to include more zone schemes. It appears that also means there will be some personnel changes. Linebacker Martez Wilson, who showed some promise last year, has been moved to defensive end. He was lining up Thursday opposite Greg Romeus, another 2011 draft pick who missed last season with an injury.

"We've got a lot of zone pressures now and it's going to call for a defensive end to drop into coverage," Vitt said. "And Martez has got a pretty good foundation from being here a year ago with coverage and coverage aspects. So we've been very encouraged for the first week of what he's done. He'll be our right end. He does a pretty good job with pattern recognition. This is a time to experiment and we'll see what he can do."

I love the idea of getting Tez more playing time just was hoping he would be the main reason to cut Shanle

From April 8th...

Could Martez be moving to DE?

I'd like to see some recent video on Romeus, it would be really nice to see how he looks in the black and gold and on what level his mobility is at the moment.

Still, I find it curious that they don't mention anything about Gallette when listing potential starters at DE.

Martez at DE and dropping back into coverage! I like it!

mixed feelings on the move myself. but spags has a good history using liter weight players on the line.

Anywhere players can be moved to be more successful then i'm all for it, I didn't know what to make of the Martez to DE move and i still don't at this point but if Spags has made that decision then i trust it will work

Tez is a freak of an athlete and spags brings out the best in D lineman, Martez, romeus and even galette could turn into real difference makers

Thinking out of the box, the Idiot Box, the Greg Williams Idiot Box...

I like it .

Man. I am all over that coverage and coverage aspects.

I think we ain't seen nothing yet. I getting this feeling that a lotta Tezmanian devil Saints shirts will be sold.
