Jabari Greer unsure if he’ll continue his NFL career

Free agent cornerback Jabari Greer claims his rehab from a major knee injury is “going really well.” It’s unlikely he’ll be healthy enough to work out for any NFL teams prior to training camp. “I think my pride and my body have two different things to say about that,” joked Greer, who was released by the Saints in February. “But we’ll see. I mean, God can do anything...

Jabari Greer not ready to attempt comeback from knee injury

Cornerback Jabari Greer saw his 2013 season with the Saints come to an end in November when he tore his ACL, PCL and total posterior lateral compartment in a game against the 49ers. Seven months isn’t a lot of time to recover from that combination of injuries, which makes it no surprise that Greer isn’t ready to start shopping himself to teams. Greer said he didn’t think he’d...

As we enter the painfully long 3-plus month wait until the NFL bestows its magical graces upon us, draft picks are signing by the dozens and the last patch of unattractive free agents begin to negotiate low-risk incentive-laden contracts.

A few ex Saints are still looking for NFL jobs

When you look at the Saints roster you get the feeling it is close to complete but they could still round out some of their needs with some post draft pick ups. When the Saints start seeing some of these guys practice, too, they’ll get a better feel for whether or not they need to bring in certain veterans at a given position. And of course there’s still guys that were with the...

2014 Offseason: Saying goodbye to familiar faces

All good things must come to an end, and 2013 is the end of an era for the Saints. Cutting/not resigning players like Malcolm Jenkins, Jabari Greer, Roman Harper, Lance Moore, Jonathon Vilma, and Will Smith signifies that. All of them were big contributors in the 2009 season, when Hell froze over and the Saints won their first Super Bowl in history. In the five years since then,...

2014 Saints Position Breakdowns: Defensive Backs

Before the addition of Jairus Byrd, the defensive backfield was a major concern and desperate for talent. Losing Roman Harper, Jabari Greer and Malcolm Jenkins complicated matters. Adding Byrd is a game change, of course, but cornerback remains one of the weakest positions of depth on the team. Keenan Lewis is a rock cover man and a terrific land for the Saints a year ago, but the...

New Orleans expected to be active in secondary search

After releasing veteran’s Roman Harper and Jabari Greer the Saints were left with two massive holes at the back end of their defense. What’s more, Malcolm Jenkins is set to become a free agent (and a pricey one at that). On the bright side, second year phenom Kenny Vaccaro should be healthy come training camp, Keenan Lewis looks to be a solid option at cornerback, and Cory White...
