Jeremy Salmon’s weekend was interesting.

After being passed over in the NFL Draft, the former Cumberland Valley and Maine football player agreed Saturday to attend a rookie mini-camp with the Buffalo Bills.

But Buffalo cleaned house Sunday, firing General Manager Doug Whaley, and Salmon’s agent called with a new destination — New Orleans.

And, while that curve might be a bit for some, Salmon is just fine with the idea of packing his bags for the Saints’ rookie mini-camp.

“New Orleans didn’t make it out to my pro day,” Salmon said. “But their special teams coach called me, and we kept in contact. Every other day, he had me send him videos of me doing different types of snaps. They expressed a lot of interest in me.

“They were the most persistent and the team I thought I’d call.”

The 6-foot-3, 245-pound Salmon said he hoped his versatility would help him make an NFL roster.



He said he can play tight end or fullback in goal-line situations.

But, he said, his long-snapping abilities may be even more in demand with the Saints.

“They don’t have a long snapper,” he said. “Their job is open, and I’m excited to go show them what I can do.”

Can he be a backup QB too? And maybe a punter?

It would be nice to have the punters money tied up in a player who can play multiple positions.

I think I'm in the minority here, but a great punter is worth his weight in gold. A great punter with a good ST coach is worth even more. I'm hoping the changes we've made pay off in a huge way with Morestead.
