Agree. And one of those was pretty tickey tack. He looked to be over about 1 inch.
He looked like our best defender

I'd like to keep Josh Morgan... He's not particularly flashy but he can do the dirty work and block when needed. I don't think we have a single other WR who can block.

+2. Aside from the false start, he was solid. Spencer is far away from cut material.

Vinnie Sunseri had a butt load of coverage mistakes starting last week. I would hope he is on the way out. We have a ton of safeties and a few that can play corner also. I think Phillips will stay for now because of his ablilty to play both. Spencer caused havoc when in the game. I believe he stays also.

Sunseri and Warren are guys we need to keep developing.

Re: Josh Morgan in, Jalen Saunders out in latest 53-player projection

Why are people inking Hawthorne in again as a starting ILB? He should not even make the roster. Just like last year, he over-runs plays and/or does something (actually, doesn't do something) that allows runs right up the middle where he's supposed to be.

Using just 1 play as evidence: see 2nd Quarter, 7:11 mins and watch him make a bad read and take a false step to the left then fall away to the right completely....way....out of the play. Literally didn't lay a finger on a RB running right at him

Was part of the problem in the middle last year (along w/ Butler making most his tackles well downfield and w/ our interior DL). Please cut this guy whether we give LB Coley a chance or not.

Analysis: Spencer vs. Haralson will be the veteran battle to watch. I'm giving the nod to Haralson this round. Spencer cost the team twice with neutral zone infractions Thursday night. He can't make those mistakes. Tull will eventually go on injured reserve, but he has to count toward the 53-man roster right now.
Secondary (9)
In: Keenan Lewis, Brandon Browner, Delvin "Chip" Breaux, Stanley Jean-Baptiste, Damian Swann, Jairus Byrd, Kenny Vaccaro, Rafael Bush, Vinnie Sunseri
Out: Kyle Wilson, P.J. Williams, Terrence Frederick, Brian Dixon, Kenny Phillips, Jamarca Sanford, Pierre Warren, Travis Manning
Analysis: Swann's nice interception displayed why the Saints are higher on him than Williams through all of the practices and early offseason workouts. He has to clean up those penalties, though. Injuries are a major concern with this group after the Ravens game. The roster shake up alters if the wounded miss some playing time. I could see the Saints hanging on to Williams and then plop the rookie on IR.

I'd keep Spencer. I looked up #99 to see who was getting penetration a couple times and he was often in the play. Looked big and powerful. Penalties will get cleaned up or he can be cut during the season. Coley: practice squad at min.

I looked up #37 to see who kept allowing WRs to get behind him on those 3rd/4th and long. Cut Federick. Liked the UDFA rookie in a pinch last year. We're too much better this year for him to make it. Cut #24 Wilson clearly. Roster spot for Swann.

In a way. But I looked up #13 Joe Morgan (Joe, right?) because he did a nice crack back block. Made a nice slant reception just prior, too.

Yeah I kinda neglected Joe Morgan being a good blocker. I guess it's kinda a two way tie between the two Morgan's.

Saunders vs. Murphy for a roster spot I believe.
