Just enough room left for a certain QB killer we're wining and dining today.

Everyone kept saying we're down to 75 and I'm counting 74, so I knew we're giving ourselves room to acquire another player, but who?!?

No pun intended but I think Tapp will eventually get the tap .

Tull could also be gone.

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

Well, now we're at 75, but we have to cutdown to 53 in less than a week and there's definitely a log jam at that LEO spot...

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

I'm thinking something like this...

WDE: Kruger, Edebali, Gwacham

SDE: Jordan, Richardson

It's quite possible that Gwacham gets cut too if Payton really likes this McCain kid.

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

From my vantage, we have five (5) men who are essentially going to fight for two (2), maybe three (3) spots...

Kasim Edebali, Obum Gwacham, Davis Tull, Chris McCain and Paul Kruger...

What really sucks is that we have a walk-through practice, a game and then some are going to be let geaux...

Kruger wasn't signed this late into the process without a long-term agenda... 4 in 5

With a draft pick attached to keeping McCain, his retention could be doubtful, but Payton and the Mickster don't value draft picks... 1 in 5

Davis Tull has a terrific first step, athleticism, but is too small to anchor as a 4-3 DE; he's a 3-4 OLB, and maybe could be a SAM backer allowing Anthony to geaux back to MIKE? 1 in 5

Obum Gwachum was unable to anchor in the run game despite his hard work bulking up and with the recent acquisitions it would seem that experiment is done, but Payton has reward players who kept the faith... 2 in 5

Kasim Edebali seemed the heir apparent and had flashes, but has lacked consistency; get the feeling he'll be playing in Buffalo if he's not a DA guy, plus he won't be under contract after the season; expect a trade attempt...2 in 5

McCain acquisition was insurance in case we didn't get Kruger and gave some leverage to Saints...

Either way, what was on the roster didn't give Coach Payton comfort, so if you were a weakside defensive end rusher on the Saints roster prior to Tuesday, you have to be nervous...

It's either an extreme vote of no-confidence or one helluva shot across the bow...

I think Tull is cut next time around. If this ends up the case, hopefully he can clear waivers and get placed on the practice squad.
