We also have to live with a roster spot going to a 3rd QB, something we've rarely done. I don't think we can play the cut/sign game with McCown that we have done frequently in the past with other #3's

Re: 2015 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

Scott, we've carried three quarterbacks since the Rams tried to claim Griffin early off the PS last season...

Brees starts, depending on how Griffin and Grayson do, it'll be interesting...

If Grayson flops, he's out, he sure wouldn't stay on the Practice Squad for long...

Payton obviously doesn't feel it for Griffin as they took Grayson...

McCown's only concern is that if Griffin and Grayson perform well and Griffin performs as well in pre-season, then McCown's salary number could cost him...

Re: 2015 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

McCown could end up a cap casualty
Save around 500k cutting him

JP- Griffin was on PS all year until late December

New Orleans Saints add Ryan Griffin to active roster, place John Jenkins on injured reserve | NOLA.com

I'm just saying that we can't do that next year

Re: 2015 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

Well, we still have some major depth issue on the interior of both sides of the ball...

But if we don't have a solid ****ing corps of cornerbacks now, we'll never have it...

Still in shock we drafted three, THREE, linebackers; we should always draft at least one linebacker every draft with a first through fourth round pick...

Would really like to have drafted another defensive lineman...

Really surprised we didn't take a guard with Evans' age...

Re: 2015 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

I'm excited to see the youth infusion at linebacker.

Now let's get them coached up to knock a snot bubble in some opponents noses!
