Counting on You

Sophomore receiver Devery Henderson has sat out the past couple of days in recent mini-camps. Henderson pulled his hamstring which raises concern in the Saints coaching staff. The Saints are expecting big numbers form Henderson, who is expected to play a bigger role as the number three receiver.

Though the question still remains, is Henderson durable enough to last the whole season and will his inexperience play a factor in his play making capability. I would not be surprised if the Saints picked up a veteran wide receiver for insurance this off-season.

Getting Cut

I have been talking about the dilemma at the linebacker position for the Saints recently, and I just recently found out that Orlando Ruff has become a June 1st cut. I can see how this makes sense though. Ruff was never really a presence on the field. The coaches felt he never lived up to his potential. Besides with Courtney Watson drafted this year, it is better to start fresh. You can’t teach old dogs new tricks.
