New Orleans Saints
If you had told me at the beginning of training camp that the Saints would bring in Greg Camarillo at some point during the preseason, I would have told you he stood zero shot at making the roster because the Saints' depth was too significant. Marques Colston, Lance Moore and Devery Henderson had and still have the top three spots locked up - none of that has changed. Behind them has been a fierce battle between Courtney Roby (having the best camp of his career), Andy Tanner (having the best camp of his career), Adrian Arrington (who's potential the Saints are firmly in love with), Joseph Morgan (the fastest of the group) and Nick Toon (a 4th round draft pick). The Saints will likely keep 6 receivers including Roby, who is primarily a special teamer, but it's possible they could go as low as 5 or as high as 7 on opening day.So why sign Greg Camarillo? As you know well by now, the injuries have really started to mount.
Arrington hasn't seen any time this preseason...

Joseph Morgan won't let his latest long touchdown go to his head.
There have already been too many hard lessons during the Saints receiver's first two training camps for that.
Morgan says his 53-yard touchdown catch against Jacksonville last Friday night was good to have on film, but that there's still a lot more he must do during the next two weeks to make the regular...
Saints starting linebackers Curtis Lofton and David Hawthorne are injured and it's not certain whether either will be back for New Orleans' regular-season opener against Washington.
Assistant head coach Joe Vitt says Lofton has a high ankle sprain. Hawthorne has a torn meniscus and was scheduled for surgery Monday.
Vitt is not specifying which leg either player hurt. He...
New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees throws touchdown passes. Quite often, in fact. Brees also stays healthy, which enables him to toss those TD passes game after game after game.
Brees will enter the 2012 season within range of a long-standing NFL record that once appeared untouchable.
Brees has thrown a TD pass in 43 consecutive games, just four shy of tying the legendary Johnny...
Wide receiver Greg Camarillo has signed a one-year contract with the New Orleans Saints, according to his agent's website. Agent JR Rickert announced the signing on Sunday. Last season, Camarillo had nine receptions for 121 yards while playing in 13 games for the Vikings. "I have asked my agent to assess situations where I could come in and legitimately compete,"...
Saints interim coach Joe Vitt said Monday that running back Darren Sproles will not return to practice this week and is unlikely to play during Saturday's preseason game against Houston, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Sproles was held out of practice Monday, and reportedly could play through the issue if it were the regular season. He also did not suit up for last Friday...
Saints linebacker Curtis Lofton said he would play this week on his high ankle sprain if this were Week 1 of the regular season, but the plan is likely to shut him out of game action until the Redskins game in a couple of weeks. Lofton said he sustained his high ankle sprain on the fifth play of last week's preseason loss to Jacksonville. Lofton said he played about 25 more reps...
The Saints were bounced from the playoffs by virtue of Alex Smith’s singular moment of career triumph. It was a disappointing ouster from the playoffs, but New Orleans had no reason to despair. Until the world found out that Gregg Williams really wanted the head of Frank Gore, then things got a bit out of hand. Now the Saints have no head coach for the year, no interim head coach...
The New Orleans Saints have announced that they’ve acquired linebacker Barrett Ruud in a trade from the Seattle Seahawks.
“New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced Monday that the club has acquired veteran linebacker Barrett Ruud from the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for a future undisclosed draft pick,” the Saints announced on their website.
After a year in Tennessee, linebacker Barrett Ruud is back in the NFC South – just not with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
On Monday, the New Orleans Saints traded an undisclosed draft pick to the Seattle Seahawks for Ruud. The Saints have a huge hole at the linebacker position with recent injuries to Chris Chamberlain, Curtis Lofton, and David Hawthorne.
Given the fact that Ruud...

Trade for Saints: The Saints obviously felt they needed added depth at linebacker. David Hawthorne and Curtis Lofton have suffered knee and ankle injuries respectively and their statuses for week 1 are up in the air, while Chris Chamberlain tore his ACL and will be put on IR. However, Ruud, once one of the better linebackers in the league, has had his career decimated by injuries...
