New Orleans Saints: 5 Training Camp Battles to Watch
 
The New Orleans Saints have finished their off-season programs. They, like the rest of the NFL, have now entered into the waiting period where no team activities are taking place.

While Saints fans now wait for training camp to open up in July; and while the Saints players and organizational staff themselves are all heading off to their month-long vacations in the tropical isles and other incredible breath-taking destinations, all eyes will be on the “battles” for several positions on the Saints roster — to determine several of the starters at a number of those spots.

I have a feeling Lasco will be our rookie we stash on IR this year so that may allow us to keep Cadet AND Murphy.

It's sad to see how illiterate our people have become. It's a disgrace to our teachers, schools and educational system as a whole. Gone are the days of teaching, replaced only by indoctrination. Most sports articles these days are almost unreadable not to mention understandable with the gibberish that comes from some of these writers who are so incompetent at their jobs, they shouldn't even be called writers.

I posted another thread about Ryker. Another hidden gem?

Change of scheme and a new coach will make a ton of difference on the line.

We already have a stud in Armstead, a healthy Unger & solid/serviceable Streif.

X factor - > D ROUSAR

With the Saints track record at the RB history, Lasco could be starting by week 15 due to another players injury.

But at the end of the day, I think he will push Murphy on special teams.

Competition is welcomed.

I don't think this one is a big deal. Essentially because of spread offenses, the top 3 CBs and safeties are all starters anyway.

The big deal in the secondary, as always, is will everyone stay healthy enough to play an entire season... Let's not forget that neither of these two (or Swann for that matter) was able to finish last season.

I like what I'm reading about Matthews. More than I like what I'm reading about Lelito or Calamity. LG is the position that keeps me awake at night.

Streif is a lot of things, serviceable is not one. Liability is a better description.

Some people won't forget Zach's performance vs JJ Watt (arguably best defensive player in the game) or the Bucs game last season. At this point he is average (IMO that is serviceable) for one more year.

We had 3 ... THREE tackles get injured/hurt last season so I'm baffled why anyone would want to get rid of him. Peat hasn't beaten him out at RT & I don't think the coaches are just going to hand out starting positions.

When is training camp again (sarcasm) :rolleyes:?

I think we're gonna end up cutting a few guys who can easily make some other teams.

The odd man out at DT and DE, like a Richardson or a Davison,
Crowded RB field with Marcus Murphy/Cadet/Hightower/Lasco/Spiller

Do we keep 3 TE's and no FB or 4 TE's?

Will FB Austin Johnson be fighting Hill and Hooma for that last spot?

Right now the kicker situation is sad. My guess is our K isn't on the team yet.

Will we keep 3 QB's? My guess is that we cut McCown and pick him back up after week 1 when all the roster shuffling settles down. Probably the same with Hightower.

I have honestly never seen Travis Cadet do anything to stay on this team . . . i'd be surprised if he even has a highlight video . . . I'm sick of this dude taking a roster spot . . . Can anyone please tell me what they like about this guy ? ? ?

Re: New Orleans Saints: 5 Training Camp Battles to Watch
 
-Lewis needs to be healthy. Williams needs to make the team.
-Spiller and Murphy are out unless an injury to Ingram or Hightower happens.
-Richardson is the starting DE. The rest are situational at best. I think a guy like Pettway could surprise.
-I hope Barth wins and Payton chooses him.
-The LG position will be solid. That's all it has to be.

He was one of those players that I just could not shake by season end. Then got wrapped up into the pre draft beauty show and kinda put him on the back shelf. Then his pro day results rolled in and back haunting my draft list in late rounds.

Quickness out of his stance is a bit of an issue but there is a solid chance he can be coached out of that issue. Once he is moving he is a solid player all around. Nasty smart but needs to get the lead out of his azz out of the gate. So he is the one player in the draft that always stuck in my head that the saints added. a draft ghost

I like Ryker upside more than Litto of whats his name. I hope the saints feel coaching is the answer to solving his quickness.

All the OT/OG UDFA are all best suited inside at OG. Two might be good depth if all else fails at OT.

Ryker Mathews - Best athlete and polished blocker of the group
Avery Young - Not a tackles despite his build needs work
Landon Turner - pass protection is a huge bug-a-bho with this big boy
