QB Chris Finlen - New offensive coordinator Mike Sheppard picks up one of his quarterback projects off the street. Finlen signed with the Saints in spring of 2003 after starting three years in his collegiate career with Northern Illinois. Finlen was then working as a scout intern with the Bears organization, and the Saints shipped him to the now-defunct Barcelona Dragons in NFL Europe 2003 where he was knicked up and a backup behind Seth Burford and attempted only 45 passes. His injured shoulder prevented him from doing much in training camp upon returning to the states, and in 2004 Finlen failed to crack the final roster of the Jets. Finlen has had exposure to pro-style west coast offensive schemes in New Orleans and New York now. Now healthy and looking for another chance, the Saints will be sending Finlen to NFL Europe again this spring.
Dan Curran
FB Dan Curran - Reportedly will be shipped to NFL Europe by the Saints. The former all-Arena star fullback with the New Orleans Voodoo, Curran tried his luck with the Saints in 2004 and passed on a return to the AFL so he could try to catch on in the NFL through NFL Europe. The 6'0, 230 pound New Hampshire product is a quick undersized fullback who had one of the best seasons in AFL history for a rusher, scoring 21 touchdowns.
Thyron Anderson
WR Thyron Anderson - Most recently with the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL, the Grambling product and Jonesboro, LA native caught 12 passes for 183 yards and a touchdown in the 2002 SWAC Championship. The 6'4, 200 pound, 25 year-old had 76 catches for 1147 yards and three touchdowns in 2004, his second CFL season, and is the first cousin of Cardinals WR Scotty Anderson.
Mike Banks
TE Mike Banks - Iowa State product and former draft pick of the Cardinals who fell out of favor with the Dennis Green administration. Turned down an offer to sign with the Chicago Bears, who wanted to send him to NFL Europe. About to be a father, Banks is an avid hunter and fisherman and looks forward to his time in Louisiana. Banks, 26, weighs in at 6'4, 262 pounds and bench presses 355 pounds. Banks was a 7th round pick of Arizona in 2002, taken one slot before the Saints drafted (Virginia Tech DE Derrius Monroe).
