Hoping Wilson didn't break his left arm

And Chamberlain was taking snaps with the ones instead of Lofton; not sure if that was injury related or not
Chamberlain? Bleh.....

I don't know where you're coming from with that comment, but Chamberlain looked really good last off-/preseason before he got injured.

He was drafted by the Rams as a safety so he has some ball skills which might come in handy when dropping back into coverage.

I for one have moderately high hopes for him making the final 53, at least if he plays at the level he did a year ago before his season ending injury.

Not too mention; he was the Rams special teams ace! He could upset Roby as the top gunner...

Re: Eric Martin may be the guy.

I'm for anyone who can come in and rise above the muck that has been the Saints LBs for the last decade (or two). We've been lucky with Vilma and Lofton inside recently and Fujita was was pretty good but for the most part Lb has been a weak spot way too long.

Every where I'm looking has him listed at 6'2" and 250 lbs. I don't know. You can never tell what is good info these days. There is a good bit of video of him on YouTube. I like the way he plays. Relentless...hustler. He played special teams in college, too.

Re: Eric Martin may be the guy.

I remember a linebacker we had long time ago that was what 5'9" sam mills and he worked out just fine
Cruize and Rell&Gold like this.

Re: Eric Martin may be the guy.

Not too sure what he ran at the combine; but he's pretty damn quick in that video. A lot of times, he's already in the backfield as soon as the QB gets the ball...
