Re: Saints work out WR Deon Butler

The Saints are working out free agent WR Jason Hill.

The Saints are also working out Deon Butler, and apparently looking for depth at receiver. Hill was signed by the Broncos in February, but didn't survive camp cuts. He caught 25 passes for 367 yards and three touchdowns in Jacksonville last season.

I wonder just how much the new basket ball acquisition had to do with it? You can only keep so many irons in the fire before you run out of room.
We certainly miss our GM......you know that by now he would have been wheeling and deadling to get a few new players in here.

Great... WR's, not defense...
WR's...
Fantastic.
What we really need is more RB's on the roster...

Damn this team

Proof the Saints Front Office comes to B&G... the FO reads all the "our problem is the offense not the defense threads".

Maybe depth.. Not a starter.

Saints o-line
9 sacks / 18 QB hits
yards/rush 4.3


Falcons o-line
11 sacks / 22 QB hits
yards/rush 4.1

Who would you suggest he replace? You don't reform a guard to Tackle mid season.
Wasn't Arian Foster a Practice Player ?

Maybe Henderson is hurt more than they are telling. Remember he was pretty much knocked out cold in the Skins game.

For defense I would look toward the Packers over the Falcons, we have had good luck with players from Green Bay.

I wouldn't read too much into this, just typical in-season tryouts, same stuff Loomis does a few hundred times per season. More like just in case someone gets hurt down the line can add these two guys to the emergency list.
