Actually I think safeties having Nos. in the 40s is pretty cool...Ronnie Lott wore No. 42, John Lynch wore No. 47, Kenny Easley wore No. 45

C'mon JP,

This is the "new" league and those were ole school baller numbers .

I always preferred safeties & corners wearing #'s in the "20's".

With the re signing of Cadet, we now have 6 RB's on the roster.

Weird.

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

Surprised at the Cadet signing eith Spiller,Murphy and Lasco all able to play the change of pace role and kick return.

I know Ingram and Spiller are injury probe but surprised

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

Just to circle back to my earlier question about jersey number changes... Someone asked De'Vante Harris about that on Twitter and I got a kick out of his answer:


Hefty ass 49?! Lol

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

You know I started to wonder, with all this talk of how great the Dallas o-line is...

Why is Romo constantly writhing on the ground in agony?

Because he doesn't know how to get rid of the ball, thinks he should have 6 secs to throw every play...

He also seems to be made of glass, so there's that too.

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

MRI of Romo's collarbone revealed buildup of peanut brittle, sources say.

"Generally there's a strong layer of toughness that sheaths pro football players' bones," said Dallas orthopedic specialist. "But you can clearly see here, there's only a thin layer of chocolate surrounding what appears to be loosely clumped-together peanut brittle."
