Probably, but I'm hearing we really really love Edmunds.

And Lasco is still eligible for the PS.

Re: Lasco waived

I figured they would want Lasco's special teams play more than Edmunds as a 4th stringer who doesn't have the same impact on ST. I realize they do a lot of pointless shuffling of the roster, but this directly affects our coverage team if Lasco's not out there this week. Whatever, I guess.

They'll probably bring him back and waive him again three more times before the week is over, knowing them.

Re: Lasco waived

Didn't take Edmunds long to secure the #4 spot. I look for Edmunds to have a really good year if one of the 3 go down. I love his vision and running style.

I do too, but the experts pointed to his exceptional special teams play as the reason he made this team.

The combo of shining as a RB as well as excelling at ST's made it a no brainer for the staff to keep him as a 4th RB.

What did he do on special teams? I don't recall seeing him do anything there, but I sure have seen it from Lasco. Sometimes it seems like the Saints just say things to make themselves feel better about their decisions.

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.
