    New Orleans Saints - Saints Sign CB Marcus McCauley

    That was quick. But in any case I wonder what you guys think about this, should the Packers bring him in for a tryout. I mean I guess he can't really make quite an immediate impact but since he has some experience playing the 3-4 it would be a plus.

    Chris McAllister is a good football player and I think it would be a great pickup considering Green Bays injuries in the defensive backfield...but I havent exactly checked out the details yet.

    It'd be irresponsible NOT to bring him in for a tryout.

    What's a bit messed up is that Mcallister is the one who forced that fumble which led to the overtime field goal. Way to treat big playmakers New Orleans.

    Maybe they caught him sniffing glue or something.

    I also think it would be a good idea to bring Mcallister in for a look-see. The guy has a ton of expirence in the 3-4 and you cannot substitute for expirence.

    Not just that, but my blood pressure would go down so much with Jarrett Bush on the bench.

    Appearantly he was released because the Saints have 2 DB's coming back from injuries.

    Well, then this is a good test to see how determined GB is to winning this year vs. next year. If they sign him that is a good sign (no pun intended). LOL

    Saints released CB Chris McAlister.

    McAlister held his own in limited action against the Pats two weeks ago, but he was exploited by Devin Thomas and the Redskins. Jabari Greer (groin) is expected to return this week.

    Bring him in, he's a solid Vet and could really help with Al out now, he's been through the playoffs before, and even has a ring, and he HAS to be better than Bush.. He is terrible

    That is interesting. Maybe they just want some info on MN defense from the past 2 years. McCauley was with them until September. You Packer fans should remember him. He was the CB that Brett threw his record breaking TD against in MN.

    Bush is terrible, he would be an upgrade for sure.
