Tanner Clears Waivers
 
@LarryHolder: Just a heads up, WR Andy Tanner cleared waivers Friday. So the #Saints can add him to the practice squad if they so desire.

After seeing the receivers for both the Patriots and Jets the other night, I'd say they're crazy not to have snatched up Tanner. Those receivers couldn't catch a football with a net.

I don't think there was much doubt that he would clear waivers. I also doubt that the Saints will sign him to the PS.

Tanner is not in their long-term plans, with Joe Morgan presumably returning next season. I think Loomis will just keep his number on the Rolodex in case of injury.

How can Joe Morgan return to something he never was a part of for more than a game or two.

I'd keep Tanner over Morgan.

Tanner has paid his dues. Morgan has paid... well he's paid Doctors' salaries. ;-]]

Tanner mustn't be an NFL type receiver. I sure hope he catches on with somebody like San Diego, Oakland or Kansas City.

I'm happy declaring my ignorance on this one. From what I have seen of Tanner versus what I have seen of some of the depth in some of the 32 NFL Teams, I have no idea why he doesn't catch on somewhere.

Ok, New Orleans is stacked with depth. But teams like Jacksonville, Oakland, San Diego, Kansas and even New England at the moment (!) are in dire need of anyone decent. Why are they not even trying him out? Bizarre.

Pardon the comparison please...

Tanner's story is similar to Tebow's story.... Very athletic, very driven, easy to admire; just doesn't quite excel enough at any one skill set to justify a spot.

Bill Belichick has lost his brain. Tanner would be a big improvement over the bumbling stumbling Dobson, imho.

Dobson will get it together. I just hope it's not before the Saints have to play them at Gillette.
