The Tiger Zealots will tell you that he blocks well, so that's good enough to keep him.

I disagree.

Oh yeah Papz, I've been waiting on this day too.

I need Andy Tanner put on the practice squad and I'll be beyond happy.

Thought Cadet was cut with Wallace today?

Chase Thomas was the only surprising name on that list, but on the other hand, he hasn't really flashed during the OTAs and hasn't been noticeable in the first two preseason games - maybe PS if he's available for that.

would they cut someone this early if they were going to go on the practice squad? I think it is more of a question of not being NFL ready.

Sometimes the draft boards are right....

Chase Thomas got virtually no work this last game against the Raiders so that should not have been a surprise to anyone. A little surprised by the cutting of Breaston so soon - I always liked him - but this just means that Stills and Toon are settling into their roles better and that the coaching staff is much more comfortable with them. For the #5 receiver I like Preston Parker due to his abilities as a returner. We shall see. Or maybe we keep Tanner and Parker and cut Roby?

Unless its a lineman, blocking had better be an added value..... It's not worth a primary role.

Surprised Thomas didn't make the splash; very productive in college, major impact in big games...

Would like to know why he failed...

True, but the Saints have a recent history of releasing players as early as possible, so that they can perhaps find a new employer while the preseason is still in full swing.

So, while it would be a long-shot that Thomas would be brought back for the PS - it isn't impossible, and certainly not because he was released this early.

A little upset. Saints have a long history of letting go of players, only to have them turn to gold elsewhere. Thumbs down for the Thomas move.
