I doubt he can pass a physical, had to be something wrong in his rehabilitation

Might be a good pick up if his leg is healed and hold's up though

Bring him in. If he's healthy enough, give him a chance to earn a spot.

I was wondering the same thing. I don't know much about him but I do know that ex charger players thrive in the N.O.

Good player. Fractured tibia Sept 2011 which can take a year to heal.
He's not ready but late in the season, somebody will pick him up.
