Re: Saints sign David Onyemata to rookie contract

let the molding begin. Can he become a starting NT in one year? not like beating Jenkins out is that huge of a task. Speaking of the marsh mellow I wonder is contract years will be the motivator for the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man?

Onyemata -

#1 consensus player up there ... I know he played in Canada but for us to get him just seems like a good thing. I've also read he is a quick study & those who know him best have tagged him as a STUD. I think Jeff Ireland may have found him a gem.

We shall see .

Between Onyemata and Davison we're going to have some decent rotation on the D-line. The Saints will benefit greatly from these two mid round draftees. They both have excellent potential.
