So, he'll take up a spot on the 53 for the opener, which is kind of intriguing.
Anyone know if we needed to make this move in the preseason?

Re: Saints to Activate Sheldon Rankins from PUP List

Call me crazy if you want, but I truly believe that if Sheldon hadn't gone down in the Eagles game, the Rams game would have been a completely different animal, totally different ball game, and the whole BS with the no-call and the stupid overtime would never have happened. Sheldon was an intangible part of that defense, that was clearly capable of taking it all the way to the Super Bowl Mothership before he went down so tragically.

This times 10.

Sheldon ruptured his Achilles. A man of his size does not to be rushed back under any circumstances.

Doctors/trainers and medical staff gotta be smart here.

Wait, what?...

Not only should they not rush him back, but he needs to be reminded himself. Let’s not forget how young he is, he may be pressing himself to hurry as well.

I know the kid wants to play, but PLEASE for the love of God, do not rush it

Re: Saints to Activate Sheldon Rankins from PUP List

It doesn’t mean he’ll be ready to go week one... maybe not even the first couple games. It just means we expect him back sooner than mid-season. I can’t imagine we would use the roster spot though if he isn’t ready.
