+1. Apparently he didn't show enough in preseason camp however he showed me enough to make the 53 roster. Still a mystery for me... I think he is with the Pats or another east coast team.

No clue on ATanner.

Let's also try Tanner in replacing Lance Moore. And draft 1 or 2 WR in the 2nd-5th.

The fascination with Andy Tanner is always entertaining to watch.

Re: Saints Considering Sidney Rice

The draft is loaded with WR but that isn't what we do.

We fill wholes in FA and then draft by BPA. Its a gamble. If we end up with a stud and have to cut someone great... if not at lease our whole if filled.

Why so high on Tanner? He is cool guy but nothing more than special teams player.

Re: Saints Considering Sidney Rice

I agree with Marching On. I think we're ok on receivers. backfield will be the same, Oline, tight ends, QB, aren't we still talking to Meach? and then draft a good possession receiver and a straight line speed guy in the later rounds.

I don't think he plays special teams.

I don't either. If he did, at some point he would have made the active roster in a Roby-like role.

from wiki:
Over three years from 2010 to 2013, Tanner was repeatedly signed to the practice squad, released, waived, or signed to a reserve/future contract, for a total of 33 roster transactions before he finally made the Saints' opening day roster for the 2013 season. However, after the Saints sustained several defensive injuries in their first regular season game, the Saints again cut Tanner from the roster in favor of linebacker Jay Richardson on September 12, 2013.

My bad. I was thinking about those preseason games when he played on special teams.

From what I remember,he looked real good in preseason. They keep cutting him and bringing him back...he must have something there.
