I don't get it. Armstead and Kelemete are both ruled out for this game. What other healthy O-linemen do we have, Hills? That's about it..

I got a feeling they are going to play this game with Barnes all season.

Make up your minds already. This is why we are in the position we are in. The indecisiveness is killing us.

Re: Saints promote CB Brian Dixon, release OL Khalif Barnes

LOL, Payton is so OCD, he can't even decide which one of the Dixon twins he likes better...."should we go with Brandon or Brian? Let's have a look at the tape again" "we need a corner? Sign one of those Dixon guys!" "We need a roster spot? Do we have a Dixon twin on the roster we can cut?"

These two twins get cut and signed from the practice squad so much, they could probably just fill in for each other, show up in each other's uniforms and the coaching staff on all these different teams might not even know or care which one they got. That's life in the bargain basement of spare parts that we live in right now.

Dixon is strictly special teams and an emergency CB if even more disaster happens.

He excels at special teams. This isn't a bad move at all.
