Saints try out cornerbacks Derek Cox and Brandon Ghee, o-lineman Eric Olsen, offensive guard Lemuel Jeanpierre and center Alex Parsons

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Nothing wrong with OL depth...Olsen is a solid backup but wouldn't think we'd want him starting for extended period of time. Cox was just in the wrong system, I'm thinking....

Olsen is good, not sure about Cox though. Champ Bailey? Anyone? Bueller?

Champ Bailey has obviously lost a step or two. After the Saints cut him he tried out at the Lions and he wasn't even taken seriously. He may be at retirement threshold.

If Ghee can stay healthy he's not a bad CB.

Olsen should know most stuff we do allready so that should be a solid pickup.

These corner tryouts; could it be a sign the end is near for Robinson?

You're probably right. That's kind of sad, but he'll be a first-ballot hall of famer. I just wanted to see him get a ring.

could be interesting to watch over the next few weeks. White did kinda take over PRob's position by the end of the game and PRob was seeing the field on more special teams play.

Olsen has one brother, Drew, a safety at Gettysburg College. His father, Andy Olsen, was a New York City firefighter. Just three days before the 9/11 attacks, his father was promoted to Lieutenant. Therefore he was in officer training on September 11, and not with Ladder 80, his firehouse at the time. When his father finally arrived at the World Trade Center site, both towers had already collapsed. A few days later, when he was digging through the rubble, his father found a truck from his firehouse buried and destroyed. None of the firefighters in that particular unit survived .
