"I'm still disappointed that Dillon Lee didn't make this team; felt he had outpracticed and outplayed Mike Mauti...

Mauti has the hometown thing and one play working for him, but he's topped out...

But Dillon Lee had several forced turnovers, interceptions and can play all three linebacker spots; we're gonna regret letting him get outta the house...

Another cut that may come that would disappoint me WR Jordan Williams who just hasn't gotten the opportunities...

He had a stupid penalty, but two real nice grabs; he uses his big body naturally, as opposed to Coleman, and just needs reps...

I'd say another pending cut coming is OL Joe Cheek that will really disappoint who played Guard in college, but is a better Tackle...

Cheek really impressed the helloutta me on a kinda WR Bubble screen that looked like a touchdown...

Cheek recognized a pass rusher as off-balance, powerfully put him down with one hand, then hustled in space to the next level to destroy a defensive back and allowed a beautiful YAC run by Jordan Williams who showed impressive acceleration in traffic...

Honorable Mention: John Jenkins has had some tough injuries that's limited his development; really don't believe the guy is lazy; plus, his role has been changed three consecutive years - and that's tough; but I was glad to see him have a nice game...

Unfortunately, he probably put Ashaad Mabry out the door and that's regrettable because Mabry is a real talent that just didn't get the development, coaching he needed in college because of choices to stay home, supporting his family..."

That is by Jean Pierre... I'm pasting it because I forgot the quote button.



I fully believe Mabry will be on the practice squad if he isn't claimed.

I don't get your dislike for Mauti, though. He's not a star, but he's a good special teams player who actually has made a lot of plays and showed great energy this preseason. I saw you talking him down last year because he's Rich Mauti's boy and you thought he was on the team only for that reason.

Well... I believe that those things do happen in sports from time to time, but in my opinion Mauti has earned his keep and, respectfully, I think it's time to get off his back about who his dad is and where he's from. I can't think of a single play that I saw Dillon Lee make. I'm not saying he never made one, but he certainly didn't stand out to me, and don't think he deserves to beat out Mauti.

I like TommyLee but he needs to try to catch with his hands, he let a very big play slip right through.

And at least Mauti doesn't look like a zombie out there, he plays with passion.

Tull - can't seem to shed blocks well. Cut
Trae Elson - cut ... needs work on tackling in space.
Jack Allen - has has performed poorly last two games. Probable cut or PS.
Spiller - looks way better this year & appears to be completely healthy. Cuts & acceleration reminiscent of his Buffalo playing days.
G Grayson - he simply doesn't do it for me. Not a lot of touch on the ball & I've seen very little progress over two years.

Expect the Saints to make a move @ GUARD after all cuts are announced across the league tomorrow.

As for a kicker? No clue.
Agree with K on everyone and I would add I think Connor gets the job. Well from everything I've read anyway.

Re: Cuts, Part Deaux

It would be interesting to see Tommy Lee Lewis on Kick Returns if he does make the team

Believe he had 4 TD's from kick returns alone in college.

I would like to see this also. I feel he's did well enough to earn a spot .

Re: Cuts, Part Deaux

Can't understand why anyone wants to keep Murphy. The dude is trash. We have 5 players on our team now that are just as good if not better returning the ball. Lasco is a ace on ST and ran with passion. I would keep Grayson and try and trade McCown to the Vikes. Is Grayson ready? Not a chance but with suck with Brees so we won't win a game with Grayson or MCCown. If we could get a rd 5 for a 90 yr old backup qb I say it's a win.

Murphy is versatile. He's no Sproles but those type of players are hard to find. Not really great at anything but decent at a few positions and maybe great now and then.

Calling Murphy "trash" is a bit short sighted.

Re: Cuts, Part Deaux

Murphy is far better than Cadet imo. So long as them handling issues were just a poor couple of weeks he is the better option imo

We still have 5 TE's and 2 FB's

Coleman looks like he might be safe

Didn't see much of Tommy Lee Thursday

Not sure if any of the rookie O-linemen did enough to make the roster

Kicker- was there a clear winner? Money-wise, Forbath makes exactly 45K less than Barth



so, in 48 hours 22 players will be ex-Saints
CJ has looked the best of all of our rb's this preseason
