That last spot can be better utilized for a depth CB/S/LB; ST until an injury

I didn't know how big Morestead was until someone went to practice and told me. I remember when he was drafted a lot of people were thinking this guy was not worth drafting so high. I guess now we know as he is one of the best.

I really don't understand how he does get any rebs with the starter when the season starters. Even if a receiver gets hurt they will go out and get a player first.

I just look at him as a reciever stashed as a great special teams player who can step up when hes needed to cover for an injury.

To answer the OP ? - he's gets to play WR in preseason, if he is out on the field then some one is out with some kind of injury. He is the Saints best special team player who just happens to fall under WR in the program

Exactly. He is huge special teams asset.
