He'll be lucky if he's still on the team when camp starts. Camp body with a slim to none chance of making the team on special teams.
Yeah, the only thing I can figure is they were looking for the best special teamer available. We have so many 4-3 type linebackers already. IMO, why not bring in a vet safety?

We have 8 safeties on the roster right now, with 3 vets (4 if you include Ball's CFL experience).

Byrd will be ready for the beginning of camp so I think we're good there for now.

Now A.J. Davis has been moved to IR... again. Benson pays this guy money so he can he can eat chips all day. He must have a ton of upside if we keep doing this

Reddick or Fortt may be ready to step up in playing time. They're cheaper than Hawthorne. Then, someone is needed on special teams. He has a shot to prove himself. All a man can ask for.

Re: Saints Sign a LB - Cut CB A.J.Davis

sounds like an inside job, a favor for the guy whos coach or dad knows someone on the inside to get this man out off the weight room and in an nfl uni. may only be through training camp but may supprize....

now how does my opinion sound.

Well, Hawthorne played better last year but started fading at the end of the season and during the playoffs. He's close but just not quite fast enough for what we're looking for I believe. I really like Humber he brings the bricks when he hits you and we need to make some statements with our hitting.
