Re: Saints waive DE Broughton

i do not like the move myself. i really wanted to see worked out as a 34 DE.

i am tired of cutting healthy players for players with IR issues that are also developmental. if he resurfaces else where in the nfl in the next two years as making an active roster i will be upset

Re: Saints waive DE Broughton

He was an UDFA in 2012, scouts saw something they didn't like. Saints picked him up and gave him a year to see how he would develop. He made the practice squad last year so they have seen a fair bit of him on the practice field.

Logical assumption is that he did not develop as expected.

Re: Saints waive DE Broughton

The Detroit Lions have been active on the waiver wire this off-season, and they added another player to their roster via that method Tuesday.

The Lions claimed defensive end Braylon Broughton off waivers from the New Orleans Saints.

Broughton spent last year on the Saints’ practice squad, after going undrafted out of TCU. He took a predraft visit to the Lions last spring.

Broughton will compete for a backup job and potentially a practice-squad spot with the Lions. Jason Jones, Willie Young, Ronnell Lewis and rookies Ziggy Ansah, Devin Taylor and Freddie Bishop are the other defensive ends on the roster.

Bishop also has practice-squad eligibility.

Earlier this off-season, the Lions added linebacker Cory Greenwood, defensive back De’Quan Menzie and offensive guard Derek Hardman off waivers.

he did not clear waivers lmao the saints i fear screwed the pooch here. I can look at the roster and come up with 5 players right off the bat i would have cut before him.

Scouts some where else see some thing worth working on enough to make wavier claims.

@LarryHolder

RT davebirkett: Braylon Broughton, claimed off waivers yesterday, failed his physical and was released by the Lions
Looks like maybe we didn't screw the pooch after all.
