He actually ended up getting waived three times during the '09 season (Once by Washington and twice by New Orleans), and cleared waives all three times.
I may end up being wrong, but unless Case looks incredible, I just have a difficult time seeing his stock rise that much between the draft and the end of preseason.
Wow! Here I had thought that he was drafted by Saints, and that they kept him on active 53 rather than send him to PS!!!
My bad. Good catch!
