New Orleans Saints sign former CFL player Chris Williams: report

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Umm...anybody see those two blatant blocks in the back there at the end? Not that the guy isn't good/doesn't have moves or speed, but that gets called back in the NFL no doubt....

Wonder if there is more to Moore injury than we know.

I think Moore may be placed on Injured Reserve. I saw him nursing a pretty serious finger/wrist splint

I'll bet you can find 1 return for TD video on just about every returner in the league. Doesn't mean they are all a Darren Sproles.

They kicked to Reggie Bush more than Sproles. Albeit they were kicking from a little further back, they could have still kicked it OB.

Did you watch the Browns/Bills game last night, The returner was only stopped by the kicker on the 40, they licked to him again.. TD!

For some reason no one wants to kick to Speoles.

Sproles is not on the official injury report. Moore is. My guess would be that Lance will be out longer than anticipated.

Re: New Orleans Saints sign former CFL player Chris Williams: report

Still not sure I get this. Surely when you kick you want a punt to be called for a fair catch or you ground it inside the 20. From a kickoff perspective you want to blast it through the end zone. There is very little value in risking actually wanting the opposition to return the ball.

Of course if the kick isn't good enough then yes, let's see someone roll I've not been a fan of Sproles returning any kicks due to his importance in the offence for a while now. It has been made all the more obvious this season because of his being on fire!

Now do those guys play wr like this guy is listed as? no they don't. yes sproles catches passes out of the back field and lines up at the wr spot on occasion . I said I don't see THIS GUY as a wr for us kick returner is the only spot I think he is going to have any relevance to us but I high doubt he lasts a week or two before being cut. I see this as a similar move as steve breston signing

Re: New Orleans Saints sign former CFL player Chris Williams: report

I like Sproles but as a returner, he does get run down just like the Chargers said. He's still good at it but actually breaking one...either have to be lucky or have some serious speed. Williams is also experienced at it so he could make money for us right now plus this is basically his last shot at the NFL so I'm sure he's going to leave it all on the field.

Trindon Holliday is listed as a WR on the depth chart; just sayin'

He'd be fine at WR...have you seen all his highlights, the man can catch. Brees also has no issues throwing to smaller WR's. Most of his passes to Sproles are right in the chest.
