Agreed. Some guys just don't want to step up and take a leadership role; Vilma the player was not that special athletically when he arrived in the black and gold, but his leadership was missed when he wasn't on the field...

Ellerbe's string of injuries have been disappointing. Next man up.

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

I feel sorry for him.
Its not like he wants to be injured or wont try and play. I probably have more sympathy as someone that has had to slow down and then stop sports since my mid 20s.

It started with bad knees from playing soccer on turf for 20 years. I'm sort and heavy (wasn't fat) and killed my knees playing. Then badly damaged part of my hip joint starting years of calcium growth that was removed (fists size growth on bone). Then finally at 32 nearly dieing of pancreaticis thats led to type 1 diabetes and waking up after 2 months in pretty much a coma without the ability to raise my hand 6inches and spending months to get back on my feet and still trying to do more than walk fast.

I don't "like" this, per se, but very inspirational. Appreciate you sharing it, it's difficult to have perspective sometimes when you haven't been there

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

Linebacker Tony Steward and Quarterback Garrett Grayson are supposed to be signed to the Practice Squad - having ten (10) players already on the list, maximum allowed, who was let go?
