July 27, 2012; Metairie, LA, USA; New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston (12) battles cornerback A.J. Davis (20) for a catch during training camp at the team

New Orleans Saints take a look at cornerback A.J. Davis


With the secondary ailing a bit recently with a groin injury to cornerback Jabari Greer, the New Orleans Saints brought back Elbert Mack who they had during preseason.  From a recent report, the club is taking a look at another cornerback as well.

Aaron Wilson of Scout.com said that cornerback A.J. Davis recently visited the Saints and most likely worked out the free agent defensive back.  Don’t get too concerned just yet though.

This is most probably just a checkup with Davis since he already spent some time with the Saints during preseason.  Davis was a cornerback for Jacksonville State before signing with the team as an undrafted free agent.  He was waived/injured by the team on August 18th.

A standout player in college, Davis injured his ankle in the preseason game against the New England Patriots, finishing with two tackles during preseason.

    New Orleans Saints looking into another cornerback not bad hope they find a good one that can hustle.

    Another scrub DB. Great. Are we that out of money that there’s none left for someone who can play the position? Johnny Patrick should be playing with Greer when both are healthy. Patrick Robinson is still trying to figure out how to play at this level and should only be used in Nickel situations. He like to play off the receiver so maybe they should just stick him back behind Jenkins and Harper as a kind of mid-fielder. It’s guaranteed no one will get behind him.

      Mickey Loomis the GM should be back after are before the eagles game he the one that makes the good picks. I feel the defense we has already can get the job done just need some hustle like Jenkins and Harper. Saints never had a powerful defense in 2011, they just had a good hustle and played hard on defense and ended up 13-3. They can do it again.

    I thought Marquis Johnson did great in the preseason. I know he’s on IR, but what’s the deal with him. What’s the injury? I know he’s no help to us now but just wondering?
