Saints sign CB Derek Ross

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; http://www.nola.com/sportsflash/sai...torylist=saints I don't know much about him but it looks like a low-risk high-reward looksee. He's got great upside. Atlanta loaded up on CB this offseason so maybe he was lost in a numbers game. I read he asked Moraa ...

He's got great upside. Atlanta loaded up on CB this offseason so maybe he was lost in a numbers game.

I read he asked Moraa to be released to find a team he might start on. (unverified)
Apparently he was locked in as the dime-back for Atlanta, and felt like he wasn't in Mora's plan.

Couldn't hurt huh?

No, Danno, it can\'t hurt.

I\'ve done as much research on this guy as I could. And it appears this is a very talented guy that\'s has some \"character\" problems.

He\'s suppose to have great speed and all the physical tools. He had a very good rookie year.

I don\'t have high hopes. Maybe he\'ll surprise.

This is a no-risk type of move. He\'s a talented guy who\'s, as some have said, had some \"issues\" off the field. Most often mentioned over on the Falcons board seemed to be \"immaturity\". Now, I don\'t know about you, but \"immaturity\" seems like a lot better bet than \"drug addicted\" or \"criminally prosecuted\"...LOL. Bring the guy in, see what he has (I understand he\'s having some swelling problems with a knee), reintroduce him to some of his former college teammates like LeCharles Bentley, and see what happens.
