Re: New Orleans Saints bring in seven players for tryouts on Monday

Rambo, a 2013 sixth round draft pick out of Georgia, started 13 games for the Washington Redskins as a rookie but was benched for poor tackling. He was back in the starting lineup in 2014 during Brandon Meriweather's two-game suspension.

He was waived in September after allowing a 76-yard touchdown in Week 1 and a 63-yard touchdown in Week 2. Rambo has played in 45 career games with 33 starts.
No thank you, we have enough poor tackling already...

What baggage did Pierre Warren have that we didn't want to keep him?!?

He had some great moments during the PreSeason...

Re: New Orleans Saints bring in seven players for tryouts on Monday

Really thought Rambo was a stud in college. He was just in the wake of some great talent in front of him at UGA it seems now. Tackling can be cleaned up, but a safety that can't tackle is really bad.

Really weird to see we've brought in 2 more fullback-types. Lorig has looked like some hot garbage since he's been in there...missed blocks, terrible pass protection which led to a Brees fumble, fumbled a ball against GB. There is an obvious drop-off with Austin Johnson out of there.

I too thought Rambo could be a good NFL player.

Don't get down on Lorig yet. Even Vaccaro took 4 games to shake the rust and he had an entire training camp.

Scraping the bottom of the barrel. Not much left on the streets this late in the season.

Brandon Taylor LSU

Chargers waived S Brandon Taylor.
The 73rd pick in the 2012 draft, Taylor tore his right ACL in December 2012. He was activated from PUP last August, but was a "healthy" scratch for all 18 Chargers games, including playoffs. Beat writers noticed diminished explosion at OTAs. Likely damaged goods, we wouldn't expect Taylor to earn a look on waivers, but his draft pedigree could net him a minimum deal before camp

more time out migyht mean he has recovered that explosive edge again
