New Orleans Saints wide receiver Greg Camarillo may be getting the cold shoulder, but during the win against the Chargers he suddenly became very important, gaining 44 yards in which two were done during the all important third down.
“It felt great, first of all getting a win, and then helping contribute to that win. My job as a guy that comes on and off the roster is to be ready when they need me. I’ve got a chance to fill in and tried to capitalize on it.”
Camarillo is an ex Stanford man who has played with the Vikings, Dolphins and Chargers. Once he was signed to the New Orleans Saints he had full knowledge that he wasn’t going to be playing week to week unless he showed in training camp.
During the game versus the Chargers, he was filling in for injured Saints WR Lance Moore. Camarillo has also worked out with Saints quarterback Drew Brees, which helped when it came to certain calls.
“The more you work with a quarterback, the more chemistry you build. Obviously we didn’t work on the specifics of this offense during the summer….He knows what kind of routes I run and as a receiver, knowing how a quarterback throws the ball gets you that much more prepared to catch it.”
