Linebacker (8)
In: Stephone Anthony, David Hawthorne, Ronald Powell, Hau'oli Kikaha, Davis Tull, Ramon Humber, Dannell Ellerbe, Parys Haralson
Out: Henry Coley, Jerry Franklin, Anthony Spencer, Marcus Pierce-Brewster
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 think he's right about Spencer vs Haralson. I think only one of them makes the cut.

Boy idk about the WR. Everything I'm hearing from you guys is Snead is tearing it up. I would think he's making a serious case to get a roster spot vs going to PS.

Interesting battles all over.

I would keep Warren over Bush 6 days a week and twice on Sunday. I look for Spencer to make the 53 also. Dixon shows promise and our secondary has a little glass to some of them so he gets the last spot.

Kikaha got schooled in the Ravens game but as far as tackling, hussle and no quit he has in him this guy stays healthy we have us a star.

Keep in mind he's never had to cover, but on several occasions Thursday night looked pretty good doing it, and some other times not so much.

He's gonna get better.

It sure would be nice to have tough choices at the LB position for a change.

Out: Anthony Spencer?

what preseason game did he watch? Two neutral zone infractions does not over shadow the poor play of the others

lost creditability right there IMO.
