Re: Saints transactions 1/7/14...

Wow. Quddus??? Did not see that one coming.

I think this means we can probably count on Lewis playing though. Without him we would probably have to move Jenkins down to corner so we would need Quddus as the 3rd safety. If Lewis plays, you don't need another safety so much because you still have Jenkins/Harper/Bush.

Johnson takes Haralson's spot I assume? Interesting. They must not be all that high on Dawson.

Surprised Quddus was waived.

And Rufus Johnson? How is he coming along with his development? Haven't heard anything about the guy since we drafted him.

Seeing how he was brought up to the active squad from the practice squad, I'd say he's coming along nicely... Bet he sees some snaps this week

Quddus went from flashing starter like ability to not even being good enough to be a special teamer. Funny how things can change so quickly.

Shocked by Quddus especially since we lost Vaccaro. Yikes!

You know how much Payton wants to win this game. He must like Johnson a lot.

A-Q has been beaten out by Bush, so it's not a huge loss.

The Saints might want to look at another rookie safety early in the draft, since both Jenkins and Harper might be gone after the season.

Great measurables, but he was as raw as can be.

He'll probably see special teams duty. If we see him playing OLB or DE, something bad has happened.
