New Orleans Saints and the Pelicans GM Mickey Loomis and Coach Sean Payton plan to work out PF/C Anthony Davis as a wide receiver.
“I’m sick of having two mediocre teams. So we’re going to cut our losses, rebuild the Pelicans and move their talent over to the New Orleans Saints,” Loomis told Who Dat Dish reporters in the early hours of the morning.
“Anthony Davis has the frame, size and speed to be an elite receiver in this league. [Wide Reciever Coach] Curtis Johnson should be able to get him quickly up to speed with the nuances of the position. We believe he’ll be the ideal candidate to replace Brandin Cooks’ production down the field.”
WDD reporters managed to land Drew Brees on the phone to discuss the move. “Hey man… The Brow? Yes, yes I’m excited. I think we can do big things with him this year. Our offense has always been good, but I really think with him on the outside we can take that next step. We’ve been knocking man. We’ve been knocking. It feels like this will be our year.”
Loomis is also allegedly considering moving Demarcus Cousins to NT, where he would compete with Tyeler Davison for the starting job.
Cousins is a bit tall for the position, but Loomis believes that will be an asset rather than a hindrance.
“Listen, we’re not going to stop with Anthony. Boogie Cousins might get a shot along the defensive line. People say, Mickey man, you’re crazy, what are you thinking moving basketball players to football they’re going to get eaten up. But I tell them, look. Boogie is a big guy. A big guy. I think he’ll be just fine.”
It appears that after Boogie, Tim Frazier and Jrue Holiday would be the next players to make the move.
Oh, and Anthony Davis let us know that he’s changing his initials from A.D. to A.F.
