If someone is cut midseason from a position group that is among the worst in the league has no shot at making this team. Has he shown you some qualities that are really appealing to you and that you think will help this team excel? Have you scouted this talent? My guess is no. My gut feeling is if he is not good enough to play on one of the bottom five o lines even as a back up then I wouldn't want him. It's clock work, every time someone is let go people think THEY see something in this person that professional coaches and scouts do not. He wasn't cut because he is good. I don't think that anyone has ever been cut because their play was too good for the team.
Researchers...can you find the last person cut midseason that turned their career around at that point.

No, I haven't scouted him myself. As a matter of fact, I couldn't pick him out of a line up. And your gut feeling is most likely correct, being cut from one of the worst offensive lines in football is definitely NOT a ringing endorsement.

What I do know is that the Saints back-up tackles have played terribly when called upon. We've seen that the last couple pre-seasons. The starters go out and the o-line falls apart. Chase Daniel never seemed to have a pocket to throw from and the running backs never had a hole. Also, during the Ram game last year, Charles Brown was a walking turnstyle. It was one of the biggest reasons we lost that game.

So all I'm asking is, what does it hurt to check him out? No one is suggesting he's going to replace Bushrod or Strief. If, like you said, he doesn't even make the scout team, then no harm done.
