Tanner Waived...again

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; John Fox suggested Benson hire Payton. Payton returns the favor and suggests to Fox about Tanner. Welker's days are numbered. I know it doesn't work that way but maybe........

He lasted on the practice squad. If he had true NFL talent he would have been picked up by one of the other 31 teams or would have made the 53 man roster. The practice squad is just what it is named. It is a squad (now with ten players) that take place in practices. They are simply regular season versions of camp bodies. Sure, occasionally one makes the roster, but that normally takes fewer than four seasons. I fail to see the fascination with him.

He could have caught on anytime over these past four years if anyone thought he was worth it. But I agree, the Saints did do him a favor. They finally sent him on his way for life after football.

Re: Tanner Waived...again

Last week I heard, pretty sure it was Pat Kirwan, say that practice squad rosters usually contain several WR's and CB's who are only there to help prevent wear and tear on the active players. WR's and CB's are constantly going downfield in practice and they need relief. He said the big deal with the expansion of the roster to ten means they can carry a QB and another player that may have a legitimate shot at making the 53 man roster.

Basically, most WR's and CB's on a practice squad are simply practice fillers with little or no chance of making a roster of 53.

And he also mentioned that they're there to star on the scout teams!
So we'll probably have a speedy WR and a tall possession type WR on the PS.

Only if you're needing to buy some insurance.

Lance and Tanner attended the same training camps for three years. One always made the active roster, one couldn't beat out Arrington, Morgan, Meachem, Roby, Hakim, etc.
Again, we gave him 4 years to prove himself, and every other team has had 4 years to sign him, and it never happened. It's not a numbers game when almost 200 wide receivers take the field each year and he never been one of them.
