METAIRIE, La. – When Greg Camarillo got his walking papers from the New Orleans Saints on Aug. 31, he figured out pretty quickly what his 2012 NFL season was going to be like.

On a roster one week. Off one another.

For Camarillo, it was the cold, hard truth about his position in the NFL, one that’s a luxury on some rosters and all but insignificant on others.

But in the 1-4 Saints’ lone win this season, the part-time player became relevant, catching four passes for 44 yards, two of which kept drives alive on third downs.

“It felt great, first of all getting a win, and then helping contribute to that win,” Camarillo said. “My job as a guy that comes on and off the roster is to be ready when they need me. I’ve got a chance to fill in and tried to capitalize on it.”

Camarillo, 30, is a 7th-year player out of Stanford with prior experience in Minnesota, Miami and San Diego. His role with those teams, however, was different.

In the past three seasons alone, he played in 45 of 48 games and before coming to New Orleans, had 142 catches for 1,686 yards in his career. He has never averaged less than 11 yards-per-catch for a season.

Still, he hasn’t found his role with the Saints hard to accept.

“No. It’s football. It’s a business,” Camarillo said. “They’ve been honest with me every time I’ve been cut and re-signed. I can just stay ready. That’s all I can do.”

I like Camarillo, if we weren't stacked at WR when healthy he would be a big player for us

He could really help a team that is really depleted but i like having him round if our WR's get injured
