"good", not great. Losing Kirkwood to injury means we're essentially the same WR corps we were in 2018.

The saving grace is Jared Cook

I hope Butler makes the 7 we keep.

Re: Lafayette Daily Advertiser: With cut day looming, Saints have a problem: They have too many good wide receivers

Here is my list for whom I want from what I’ve seen so far this preseason:

Thomas, Ginn, Smith, Kirkwood, Butler, Humphrey, Cobbs

Cobbs over Grayson only because he’s a better route runner right now and the deep ball is really not part of our offense. Cobbs is the type of receiver that can move the chains by using his size. I think Humphrey can become something special. In college all he did was make the big play and while not the fastest he will cause issues with the ball.

I’m really looking forward to this last preseason game..lots to sort out for the bottom of our roster...feels good to say that!

Don't forgot Harris. He will no doubt be your Kickoff and Punt returner.

Also... Humphrey isn't no where ready to play and has been deliberately not thrown to so we can hide him on the practice squad. At least I think/hope that is the story.

No way Humphrey makes the the 53 over Butler or Harris. I don't get the obsession with him. Maybe I'm missing something....

I was giving Harris the 7th spot as the return man...guess I should have included that. If we go with 6 then I agree that Humphrey will be the odd man out. Itís going to be a very tough decision either way and it would surprise me if the one that donít make it possibly get picked up by another team.

Itís going to be murky , Kirk wood is battling a injury. Again goes to the locker after brief showing. If heís not a go for the start of the season itís going to be interesting.

exactly
just because the 4-7 guys are of similar ability does not mean they're great. Has anyone really stood out in PS? No one even has more than 4 catches except Grayson
