ESPN: Coby Fleener more comfortable, hopes for better in Year 2 with Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I have never seen someone with so little energy on a football field at any level. I don't have faith in him at all after watching him run lazy routes at training camp. My God he's a waste of space. ...

I have never seen someone with so little energy on a football field at any level. I don't have faith in him at all after watching him run lazy routes at training camp. My God he's a waste of space. We over paid again. I don't like to criticize people or players but this guy gets no lee way from me at all. I hope he improves but I'm not going to hold my breath.

Fleener last year was a case study in failing to bring in an effective replacement when trading away an asset...

And then overpaying for what little the market had to offer in the way of the TE position that year...

Although I'm not sure we could call Jimmy an asset at that point. I think we got better than we gave on that one. But still, it was a desperation move even though it did force Drew to look beyond the TE position.

Eh... Most of us wanted Ladarius Green last year. So if you look at it that way it turned out alright.

Nobody else can either.

Precisely.

Per Spotrac numbers, Ladarius was paid 6 million by the Steelers and they got 18 receptions for 304 yards and 1 TD for their coin. Fleener was paid $7.4 million so far by the Saints and they got 50 receptions for 631 yards and 3 TD's.

It could have been a lot worse for us.
