If you go by 40's, he's our 2nd fastest S on the team behind Bush's 4.48

Re: Saints sign S Marcus Ball

That sack at 1:10 was the most beautiful thing ive ever seen. Im guessing this will be our safety that improves the run game looks like hes always aware of where the ball is going and ontop of everything also mega big hits, so not much breaking a tackle with this guy. i sure as hell wouldnt wanna get hit by him

Maybe a run stopping in-the-box safety for those three safety looks?!

I like it... I'm hoping that Bush signs his tender in the near future. It would be nice to have a stable of play making safeties on the 2014 roster.

Re: Saints sign S Marcus Ball

Saw two comments on the Saints website that was good. He looks sweet on that highlight tape. The only thing that creeps into my mind is "is this a security signing? How is Vaccaros knee coming along?"

As a Canadian transplant now living in LA it's cool to see one of my Argos moving to my Saints. Due to the spread out nature of the defense, Canadian defensemen tend to be fast. According to the CFL combine numbers I saw, he had a 40 time of 4.45. He could be one of those surprise pickups the Saints tend to make.

Saints fans are in for a real treat. Had the pleasure of watching him in Toronto for two seasons. Always around the ball, finishes every play, and plays with a chip on his shoulder. Really gonna miss him in Toronto, but wishing him all the best.

You've got yourselves a player, folks!
