Adrian Arrington #87

Arrington entered the NFL as a 7th round draft choice of the Saints in 2008.  New Orleans traded a 2009 6th draft for Arrington.  He started on the practice squad was called to the active roster during the 2010 season.

His NFL debut in a match up against the Bucs on January 2, 2011, was pretty spectacular.  He led the team with 7 receptions, totaling 79 yards.   His last sighting was in the NFC Divisional game against the San Francisco 49ers.

In that game, he made one catch for 17 yards but also Carlos Rogers forced him into an incomplete pass.  Arrington has been somewhat injury prone but that has not stopped five other teams from making him offers that he has turned down. At present he is being groomed for the slot position.

*Interesting tidbits–Arrington was only bested in his college career as a Michigan Wolverine by Mario Manningham.
