Re: Joe Morgan Could Be Next Star For New Orleans Saints

Saints promoted WR Saalim Hakim from their practice squad.
The younger brother of Az Hakim from the Greatest Show on Turf Rams, Saalim is relatively new to football after concentrating on soccer until late in his high school career. He's been clocked as fast as 4.31 in the forty, which is why 18 NFL teams tried to sign him once he became eligible this year after playing for the UFL's Las Vegas Locomotives in 2011. Hakim is an intriguing developmental project. Tue, Dec 18, 2012 07:58:00 PM

I think we claimed someone off of Dallas' PS that has sub 4.3ish speed.

He's raw, but he's raw at mach 5.

It was Saalim Hakim (yes, Az's little brother), he supposedly ran a 4.23, recorded on a youtube video that went viral.

He's a free agent, and I've heard nothing about the Saints trying to resign him.

I'm just assuming he's gone.

We can go ahead and let Devry go... as far as I know he has never flipped a cornerback before

Re: Joe Morgan Could Be Next Star For New Orleans Saints

With all the options that the Saints have on offense it's a stretch to think that Morgan will have more than 600 yds and 4-5 TDs in my opinion.
I hope he surprises me but one thing that I've learned as a lifelong Saints fan is that I must temper my enthusiasm each year. That has been hard to do since 2007.

Yep, I think Morgan will incrementally improve, and another young WR will step up and post similar numbers to Morgan's 2012.

Likely Toon.

I could care less if any 1 player is at the top of any stat board for our offense. As long as the Team Offense is #1 things are going as planned.

Having a workhorse anything means that they are pretty beat up by week 13-19.. Spreading it out means we have an overall healthier team.

Football/Playoffs is all a war of attrition.

Re: Joe Morgan Could Be Next Star For New Orleans Saints

Love the speed. Could develope into the next roby. The soccer background could meen he can stop and start in a flash. Its something we need in a reciever is breakaway speed in a cut after a catch.
