New Orleans Saints cornerback Laron Scott trying to make his mark and the roster

If this does happen, Scott could bring a needed break or option if you will to Sproles.  Being the main returner is both a blessing and a curse for the Saints and for Sproles whose only viable backup is wide receiver Courtney Roby.

Sproles can’t be matched in speed but the Saints need to find a backup kick returner besides Roby who is a better gunner on special teams than a return man.

Although it’s only the first game, if Scott can keep up the pace for the rest of the preseason as well as training camp, he could very well have a legitimate case to make the final roster.
