TRAVARIS CADET NEWS

Return man for Saints in draft?

After parting ways with Darren Sproles and Lance Moore this offseason, the New Orleans Saints no longer have any experienced punt returners on the roster. Third-year running back Travaris Cadet has shown some ability as a kickoff returner over the past two years, and the Saints may try him out in the punt-return job, as well. Or they might make a kick returner a priority in the...

Fantasy Football Name To Know: Travaris Cadet

In deeper leagues, keep an eye on how the New Orleans Saints use Travaris Cadet this summer. The Saints’ front office jettisoned Darren Sproles this offseason, creating a gaping hole in production as a receiver at the running back position. Pierre Thomas figures to eat his share of targets/receptions again next season, but there still is room at the table for others. Enter Travaris...

Saints Nation Mailbag: You’ve got questions, I have answers (sometimes) ☆

Thanks for some of the questions you sent over the weekend. Some good things to discuss for sure. Let’s dive right into it. From Facebook: Chad Koelling Assuming Pierre Thomas is the starter next season, do you prefer Ingram or Robinson next in the rotation or can you see Robinson filling in the hole Sproles will likely leave in the screen game the Saints have been so accustomed...

2014 Saints Position Breakdowns: Specialists

When the Falcons signed Devin Hester yesterday it reminded me of how big of a weakness the return game has been for the Saints in the last two years. Darren Sproles, now traded away, had regressed significantly in that department. He was replaced almost entirely by Travaris Cadet on kickoffs and the regression was then felt even more acutely. While Sproles continued to man the punt...

2014 Saints Position Breakdowns: Running Backs

The Saints are extremely deep at running back and the big question coming into 2014 is whether or not they will continue to keep as many with the cap issues that surround the team. Sean Payton has always said "you can't ever have too many good backs", but when so many of them are cheap and your team is right up against the cap, you can't always afford to keep the...

Saints need to consider cutting offensive weapon

Jimmy Graham and the Saints are currently locked in a contract dispute that will cost the franchise a lot of money in the upcoming year. The Saints are also struggling to re-sign core components of last year’s playoff team such as Brian De La Puente, Zach Strief and Malcolm Jenkins, having given the marching orders to several veterans already. The Saints have traditionally been...

Saints Nation's Top 10 Plays of the 2013 Season: #10 - Travaris Cadet's 82 Yard Kickoff Return

With the season officially over I thought I would revisit the top 10 plays of the season, much like I do every year. I start with number 10 and one of the best wins of the season, the 49ers home game. You will be seeing more from this game as we progress through the top 10, but 10th is an electric 82 yard kickoff return by Travaris Cadet. The Saints never scored a  defensive or...

Saints Nation: Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades vs. 49ers

I have to say, this was a complete team win. The Saints got critical plays from all phases of the game. You had the Cadet return and the big Hartley kicks. You had Meachem, Brees and Colston on offense. But the defense holding the 49ers to 196 total yards from scrimmage and just 81 on the ground was monumental. That's what allowed this team to survive three turnovers. By the...

Saints Nation: Five Things to Look for in Saints at Texans

Preseason game number three is on the docket for tomorrow as we inch closer to hosting the Atlanta Falcons on September 8th.

Cadet looking to avoid fumbles

Saints running back Travaris Cadet knows he has to hold on to the football. Cadet fumbled twice in the Saints' 28-20 preseason win against the Oakland Raiders last Friday. Neither cost the Saints on the scoreboard, but coach Sean Payton was not pleased. Cadet made the team last year as an undrafted rookie from Appalachian State. He is trying to secure a roster spot in the...

Saints Nation: Saints Move to 2-0 In Preseason by Beating Raiders 28-20

A weird ebb and flow to this one saw the Saints go up 23-0, then give up 20 straight, before rattling off the last 5 points of the game to seal it. Overall the improvements were significant, but there were still a lot of problem areas with penalties and turnovers. It must be said the competition was quite poor and I felt the Raiders as a team look in really rough shape at the moment...

Saints Nation: Saints Win Preseason Opener 17-13 Against Chiefs

The Saints' started the preseason by winning at home, which was cool, but the biggest take away will be the Chiefs' opening 14 play 80 yard drive to score with ease on the Saints' starting defense. That drive, where the defense was abused and slowly bled to death, was a painful experience that suggests they are not much better than what we saw on the field last year....

Wilson's dislocated elbow opens door for young hopefuls

Doctors now confirm Saints linebacker Martez Wilson dislocated his left elbow when he banged it off of Rafael Bush's helmet Monday during a training camp practice. Wilson was trying to get to Travaris Cadet in the backfield when the injury occurred, and Wilson initially thought he had bruised his bicep.

Saints Nation: Training Camp Position Battle Preview - Running Backs

Even with Chris Ivory traded away, I view the running back position as one of the most stable positions on the entire roster. In fact, that's exactly why Ivory was traded, an overload of talent at the position. There's a lot of variety at that position with a 1st round draft pick, a couple undrafted players that make an impact, and a free agent that demanded a medium priced...

Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades @ Raiders

The Saints were both efficient and balanced on offense in this game. 28 passes, 28 rushes. They passed for 229 at 8.2 yards per pass (thanks to 75% completions) and rushed for 153 yards at 5.5 yards a pop. The last few weeks they've gotten away from Brees throwing for 400+ yards in the interest of balance, and it's made them more explosive. This was another all around impressive...

Saints Nation: 5 Things to Look For in Saints @ Raiders

Gameday is here and with it comes a chance for the Saints to claw their way back to .500 for the first time since week 2! For them to get to 5-5 after an 0-4 start would be somewhat miraculous, but also necessary to have any shot at the postseason. The opponent is an extremely beatable one, but the "easier" games, which don't truly exist in the NFL, are the ones the...

The Fantasy Football Chameleon – Week 11 For 2012 Fantasy Football

Week 10 of 2012 will be remembered as the Week of the D/ST. The Broncos, Cowboys, Titans, Colts and Bucs all put up huge point totals that likely swung more than a few matchups, and the Steelers have yet to face the pathetic Chiefs. I for one am against the more unpredictable aspects of fantasy football (kickers in general, defensive TDs, the destination of Sanchez’s passes), as...
