Opening Statement: “We have gotten through our second week of our OTAs. Next week our schedule (on) Tuesday, Wednesday (and) Thursday is minicamp. Three guys that we held out of practice today (are) Malcolm Jenkins, Ryan Steed and Benjamin Watson. Those guys (statuses) are just injury-related. We will see where they are at next week. Hopefully they will be able to participate. In regards to Joe Morgan’s situation, I have had a chance to visit with Joe, the club is on top of all the specifics and I am going to leave it at that.”

What is the challenge of a situation like Morgan’s?
“I just think each team is faced with it at some point, hopefully less than more. It is what it is in regards to the lesson you hope the players, including Joe, learn from it. It’s our job to keep reinforcing the importance of being smart and making right decisions and it’s something that we really try to pride ourselves in since we began here in 2006.”

Some teams might let go of a guy when things like this happen. Do you take it case by case?
“Again, we look at each individual case and kind of leave it at that.”

As far as Benjamin Watson, is it serious?
“No, we will have him back. He will be fine.”

You have Cameron Jordan at one defensive end spot, but for the second position, how much is it a battle between several players?
“I think you are seeing a lot of guys competing to play the other end spot and we have some flexibility. I mentioned this last week, we are in a base 3-4 front less than 50 percent of the time, so we get into all the nickel and dime packages. So, guys are competing, obviously in the base when it comes to the end position. As it converts to the sub-packages, they are competing to play inside as a pass rusher or outside.”

What do you expect from Rob Ryan’s unit?
“Just to see improvement each week as we practice and get ready and prepare for the start of the season.”

How do you feel about left tackle having Charles Brown back?
“Charles is getting work now. We have three guys over there competing for that spot, so it’s one of those positions that I think you don’t receive much information on until we get into the pads, start playing the preseason games and getting into the live practice settings. But all three of those guys bring a different skill set and obviously have different experience playing that position.”

Re: Sean Payton: "Competition is Strong Right Now"

How do you view Travaris Cadet right now?

“It’s interesting with him and I am just getting a little more familiar with the player. Seeing him last year was one thing, but he is someone that catches the ball really well in the backfield. I’m anxious to see how his running skills are, because Darren Sproles is a guy, as good as he is as a receiver, we feel like he has a running skill set that suits what we want to do in our one-back runs. I think in Cadet’s case, it’s year two and he is learning what specifically is the role (for him). Obviously he is a guy that is comfortable in the passing game, and I think it’s going to be important that he can protect. I think he is big enough and smart enough too. It’s just a matter of getting repetitions in learning who he is blocking and the technique on how to block. Those things will allow him then to be a little more versatile, and it’s not as predictable when he is in the backfield as a guy that is just going to go out in the routes.”


i am really hoping he steps up this year and his blocking improves. IMO he is the reason the saints felt ok trading Ivory. They rolled the dice and now it is up to him. with his skill set, DS and PT are the two that can mentor this kid. he is in good hands

break out player in 2013?

Re: Sean Payton: "Competition is Strong Right Now"

Saints rookie OT Terron Armstead has bulked up to 315 pounds after weighing in at 306 at February's Combine.

One of the questions about Armstead coming out was his "anchor," and added weight should help make him a more powerful player at the point of attack. Alex Marvez reports the rookie has run with the first-team throughout OTAs, and considers him the favorite to start over Charles Brown and Jason Smith.

I never thought of that, but you may be right. It may have had little to do with Ingram stepping up and more to do with Cadet's development.

Good food for thought.
