Austin Johnson was a linebacker out of Tennessee, converted to fullback...he'll need reps...

Everyone has their preferences. We've done very well watching the Chargers

I thought we just didn't want him back. He signed with Detroit for the vet minimum.

His 2013 cap hit with us was 555,000

His 2014 contract with Detroit was 1 year @ 645,000 with a 65,000 signing bonus.

He just wasn't that good.

My understanding from remarks from Coach Payton on the "Lorig" signing was they wanted to get bigger and more aggressive at the point of attack with the running game between the tackles...

Re: Saints prepared if Erik Lorig injury lingers

After Payton watched film of Tampa he went after their FB because he stood out in every game........that says a lot about Lorig.

we would have had to tender him at over a million, and you're right, he isn't that good

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/10/14) The Saints did not tender two of their restricted free agents, fullback Jed Collins and receiver Joe Morgan, because they can't justify paying either $1.4 million in 2014, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Both became unrestricted free agents, with the team hoping to re-sign them at a lower price.
Collins is a valuable lead blocker in the running game, and Morgan is a dangerous deep threat when healthy.
