Ok, looks like we got the practice squad contracts locked up & out of the way. I'm sure there's a method to this madness, .

I'm glad they signed Broughton, he reportedly has a rather huge "upside" even though that is somewhat of a curse word around these parts.

There is no reason Tanner shouldn't make next years squad. I felt about Tanner this season the same way I felt about Joe Morgan last year.

I guess a lot hangs on what Toon's situation will be come next season and who'll the Saints decide to keep out of their current receiving corps, but I think Tanner is destined for another year on the PS/injury relief role.
