And Lasco is still eligible for the PS.
forgot about PS- good point
he certainly hasn't merited enough to be picked up by anyone, so he's probably safe there

If not, there must be a big difference in what Edmunds does in practice vs. what I saw of him in games. I do prefer him as a runner over Lasco, any day. Just a bit surprised they think he's better than Lasco on special teams.
It's just what I've heard about him from several sources. They could be wrong

Peterson is a gamble so what the heck roll the dice again.

Saints needed a big bruiser any ways.

I was more just wondering "out loud" what the Saints think is so terrific about his special teams play. Wasn't doubting you that that's what Payton said.

I just didn't notice him on special teams. I didn't watch every play, by any means, this preseason, but I saw a fair bit and read plenty, and hadn't really come across anything praising his ST play. I guess he was fundamentally sound in his assignments, though not necessarily making the tackles... Or something along those lines.

Re: Lasco waived

Edmunds played better than Lasco and Vito. Edmunds was more versatile.

Re: Lasco waived

The tackle Edmunds made in preseason was reminiscent of a Bronco Hall Of Famer. Lasco is a great athlete. Has passion. But, he just isn't anything special as a running back.
