New Orleans Saints A-to-Z Roster Breakdown: WR Adrian Arrington

2 of 2

Arrington is the prototypical NFL receiver with classic size and leaping ability as well as extremely long arms and big hands. He has demonstrated he is more the capable of beating defenders and turning in big plays.

What he is lacking is elite speed (4.55) which eliminates him as a true deep threat inside the Saints offense. Currently receivers Devery Henderson and Robert Meachem hold down the deep routes for the Saints, another reason while Arrington has not secured a full time starting role.

With the uncertainty surrounding the return of unrestricted free agent wide receiver Lance Moore, Arrington may finally have the opportunity to prove he belongs on more then just the practice squad.

Even if Moore returns, and rumor has it he will on a $3M dollar deal, Arrington will be given every opportunity to make the final cut this season.

New Orleans is high on Arrington, and Arrington is high on New Orleans, evident by his refusal to sign elsewhere, including with the Minnesota Vikings. Devery Henderson may also lose his job if he does not take a pay cut down from his expected $2.25M salary. There is not better time then now for him to finally break through.
