New Orleans Saints: Tracy Porter And Adrian Arrington

2 of 2

Wide receiver Adrian Arrington may finally make the Saints final roster this season.

Arrington, a seventh round selection out of the 2008 draft, has been a staple on the practice the last three years.

Each year he has put on a show during the Saints preseason games, but always lost out on a final roster becaue of injury and a deep pool of receivers ahead of him on the depth chart.

Times are changing however as receiver Lance Moore is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent when league operations resume possibly as soon as next week.

Moore  is expected to return as the Saints are keen on keeping the sure-handed receiver in New Orleans.

Often as free agency goes though, some team could come in and make Moore a deal the Saints are not willing to match.

Devery Henderson is a candidate to be cut given his 2.25 million dollar salary next season coupled with this up and down play over recent years.

Top wide receiver Robert Meachem is expected to become the primary number two opposite Colston, and should Arrington have another break-out preseason, then Henderson is nearly expendable.

Head coach Sean Payton loves the speed Henderson’s possesses and he often sends him streaking down the sideline behind coverage.

It’s likely that he could still stick with the team if he agrees to restructure his contract and reduce his role in the offense.

Arrington saw action during the Saints last regular season game in 2010 against the Buccaneers, catching a team high seven receptions for 79 yards, and demonstrating once again that he is deserving of a larger role with the Saints.
