Forget the "EB" moniker.

According to Saints backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, undrafted rookie wideout Emmanuel Butler's nickname is now "eBay."

"We found him on eBay at a bargain price," Bridgewater said after the Saints' 16-13 preseason finale loss to the Miami Dolphins.



Butler said he doesn't remember exactly when Bridgewater christened him with the new nickname, but it first was used in the training room.

"He was like, 'What's good, eBay?'" Butler said. "I looked over and I was like, 'eBay?' He was like, 'Yeah, we had to find you on the internet, you're too good to just not get drafted and come here as an undrafted free agent, so we had to find you cheap on the internet on eBay.'"

I've yet to watch the game, but from Mike Triplett, he apparently has been struggling with drops. Whilst Humphrey is catching everything thrown his way.

I wouldn't read too much into a couple of drops from Butler + he's been targeting a lot more times than Jordan.

If you look at the overall big picture since Emmanuel was signed, rookie camp & subsequent pre season games ... I think coaches have been overall impressed with his full body of work. Meanwhile I expect Jordan to be cut. He's a guy that has a lot of potential though.

Lil' Jordan is like Dan Arnold, a turrible mismatch for defenses.

Humphrey is a gamer for sure but Butler has been very consistent through camp while Humphrey has been up and down. The drop hurts but I think he’s safe.
Humphrey MAY make it to PS though.

I’m liking both of these guys over T. Smith right now. Smith seems a little stiff to me and doesn’t catch well in traffic.

eBay. Thats a pretty good nickname, the type that would stick for a long time.

Butler will make it and Humphrey won't get to the PS.
