Now to call either a TE would not be fair to Watson or the others who do block. granted Josh is a better blocker than Jimmy. Ok puts more effort into it. or shows a willingness to block as the experts say.
I don't understand playing the position half way.

Wouldn't save much cutting him. In fact it would save more cutting Johnson.

From my vantage, it was straight up effectiveness, getting on the field, making positive plays, more than cost-cutting...

Saints defensive outlook: Edge defenders, cornerback could receive facelift | NOLA.com

So Holder has Markus Pierce-Brewster (URFA) and Stephon Sanders (URFA) coming in as Inside Linebackers...

Wish guys could pick one last name and roll with it; yet another reason I'd never have made it as an equipment manager...

In that case you would cut Jarius Byrd.

I think Lorig is a better long term answer than Johnson.

Versatility wins.

Not a big fan of the Byrd signing, hoping he finally leaves the injury bug and plays a full season...

If you want versatility, Johnson looks like the better runner and he played linebacker at Tennessee, so there's that to consider...
