I don't believe he has any shot of making the opening day or any other day's roster.

Saints need offensive lineman in the second half of preseason games after the starters get pulled

sorry just never saw it with Tanner, IMO he was one of those guys that showed a little bit of talent in the preseason so everyone jumped on his bandwagon so they could be right if just IF he actually did something in a regular season game so they could say "Look I told you so"

I still say Preston Parker outshined Tanner that preseason.

Re: Poor ole Andy Tanner......

My guess is he'll be back for at least one more run.

Re: Poor ole Andy Tanner......

I liked Tanner, at least what I saw.
Tanner has excellent hands.
Only remember one drop that hit his hands.
Light in the pants and a step slower than his competition.
He was "OK' doing all the things asked of him.
Just didn't bring anything glaringly better to create his own niche.
Not big like Colston, not quick like Moore/Stills/Sproles, not fast like Henderson/Morgan.
Just could never play his way to the front row.

Re: Poor ole Andy Tanner......

I know some people got tired of seeing Tanner on the PS and such. To me he was the New Orleans Saints version of "Rudy".

I would've liked for him to see the field even if it was on special teams.

I don't feel sorry for him. But I do respect him. With so many NFL bums out there, this above average athlete stuck around a long time. That takes some serious heart. Respect to Tanner from me.

Don't feel too sorry for him. He isn't going anywhere.

Re: Poor ole Andy Tanner......

Can he now qualify for NFL retirement since he's been on/off the roster for ten years already?
