New Orleans Saints lose another from 2014 draft class after Tavon Rooks signs with Cardinals

It was a telling sign when the New Orleans Saints declined to add offensive tackle Tavon Rooks to their long list of players signed to a reserve/futures contract last week.

Such a contract would have added Rooks to the 90-man offseason roster and prevented another team from poaching him.

Instead, Rooks, a Saints 2014 sixth round pick, signed a futures contract with the Arizona Cardinals on Monday.

If the Saints wanted to keep him they could have signed him to a futures contract. They didn't. That tells me they didn't want him.

Seems more like we chose to lose him. Either way you slice it's another draft pick that didn't work out. Maybe 6th round picks are throw away's anymore.

We can't hit on first round picks and we can't hit on late round picks anymore

Yay for the scouting department!

Re: Another one bites the dust hey yay ya ya ya - Tavon Rooks

it is yet another swing and a miss for the saints

how long do you think they can hide behind a few early draft successes?

The thing to watch is what the cards do with him. could this be another bad move like Warren was? i doubt it I never thought the pick was any good any ways. but i will watching this one. the cards have done a great job with player personnel

Yep, posted that last week. We didn't want him, we didn't lose him.

I really don't know of another NFL team that drafts as poorly as the Saints. It's going to catch up to us soon, real soon.

We drafted most of the players from our Super Bowl team. Evans, Nicks, Brown, Bush, Thomas, Colston, Moore, Henderson, Smith, Porter, Harper, etc. It's not as bad as people try to make it. The draft is always a risk.
