For a recent third-round pick who couldn’t get on the field for the league’s all-time worst defense (as measured by yards allowed), cornerback Johnny Patrick was popular yesterday.

After being released by the Saints, he was claimed off waivers by the Chargers. But according to Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com, the Seahawks and Colts also put in claims for the former Louisville corner.

Patrick being popular (primarily because he’s cheap) illustrates the “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” nature of the business, which is worth remembering as teams obsess over the measurables of mid- to late-round picks this week.

When he starts for that team and leads his league in INT - oh man is there going to be some drama...

Re: Holder: Saints Cut Dave Thomas, Johnny Patrick

When corey white was struggling I was thinking "man why don't they just put Johnny Patrick out there, he looked great in preseason"

Then they finally did, and he single handedly nearly lost the dallas game for us

Lets hope corey white is fully healthy and can continue from last season, he was playing real well before he got injured

He sure did look like he was developing nicely.

Don't forget, many scouting sites thought his best fit in the NFL was at FS.

Hmmm.

He does have the size to play FS and he's a fast guy, you never know

This is the best coverage by a saints DB on a deep pass that i've seen in a long while - he plays the ball very well in flight

The db coach in San Diago is pretty good, but you look at the Seahawks db. coach he's even better, makes me think what 2 real good db. coaches see that we might of missed. I know our db. coach stinks. Maybe, just maybe he is part of the problem.

We definatly do need a true polished corner, not only for his field play but also to teach, we don't have one. Greers not bad but one more we could be good, not great but good.

Seahawks DB Coach Kris Richard, only 33, would be an outstanding DC

Do you mean Andre Curtis, the assistant secondary coach, when you are talking about the Saints' DB coach?

Because if you do, I think you are barking up the wrong tree, since he's only been with the team for a year and his track-record before that would indicate that he is more than capable of doing the job and developing the Saints' DBs.

If he can get them to tackle, hit, and play some D you may be right. But judging by last years performance or should I say lack of, his track records mean nothing, look at Spags., performance is EVERYTHING, and he has shown nothing to prove me wrong.
