Its 6 weeks, then we can evaluate him for 3 weeks before we activate him or place him on IR. We'll get a roster exemption during that evaluation period.

At this point is AA's contract guaranteed. ?

He wasn't on the roster for the entire week 1.

Arrington has to be close to getting on the field, if hendersons out for gees hope its not that long but the way morgan preformed sunday the team had little time to start calling in wo's for tryouts. they could let morgan be the deep ball guy to clear the safety, and AA as colston's relief. we will see, this is just speculation guys don't ya'll start ruff-ruffin me lol

I'm hoping that Morgan looks better with more opportunities to catch the ball

Bryce Harris

ProFootballWeekly.com - Draft Prospect - Bryce Harris

Notes:

Also was a standout on the hardwood as a California prep, averaging 21 points and 14 rebounds. Despite weighing approximately 220 pounds as a high school senior, passed on Division I basketball offers to play football for the Bulldogs. Redshirted as a defensive lineman in 2007. Appeared in nine games in 08, mostly on special teams, and moved to the offensive line. Started all 39 games at left tackle over his final three seasons (2009-11). Is a four-time Academic All-WAC selection.

Positives:

Fairly athletic. Very quick out of his stance. Generally plays on his feet. Good leg drive. Creates some push as a down blocker. Tough, durable three-year starter. Highly intelligent. Outstanding character well-respected and coachable with a team-first attitude. Very smart can learn any position.

Negatives:

Plays short-armed. Needs to get stronger, particularly in his upper body. Technique and footwork need to be refined. Stressed by speed and flexibility to the outside. Unbalanced, inefficient puncher. Bends at the waist and slips off blocks. Average quickness to adjust or redirect struggles reacting to counters. Is not a consistent finisher and needs to incorporate more physicality into his game. Might be too smart and overly analytical.

Summary:

A big, smart, unflashy college left tackle, Harris is not as athletic as you would expect of a former basketball standout (movement skills play better in space than in tight quarters). However, he is a character player warranting draftable consideration as a versatile, developmental swing backup. Is a better run blocker than pass protector and could be best on the right side or kicking inside in the pros.
Bryce Harris

A taller, tight-hipped tackle who lacks ideal flexibility in his lower half and has a tough time naturally bending at the knees. Struggles to sit into his stance and lacks ideal range toward the corner in pass protection. Gets buckled over at the waist when extending into contact and despite his natural compact/balance footwork initially, routinely is forced to lunge into contact and push speed rushers past the play. Showcases decent lateral quickness in tight areas. However, when asked to reach the edge and adjust off the speed rush, he gets upright and is stiffness showcasing his inability to cleanly re-direct. Is compact with his punch and uses his length well, however isn't real heavy handed and has a tough time staying engaged.

Showcases decent initial quickness when asked to step and seal in the run game. Plays mostly from a two point stance, isn't a guy who gains much leverage or has the lower body strength to move defenders off the football. At best he possesses average lateral range to stick through contact and looks top heavy on the move. He struggles to breakdown in space and has a tendency to over run plays when trying to reach the second level.

Impression: Flexibility, balance and range are all below average and he lacks the skill set needed to make an NFL roster.

Re: Saints place Vilma on PUP list

I sure hope Vilma can help the team when he comes back. It's definitely highly questionable. However, Godhell ain't done dismantling this team yet.
