He'll attend the offseason programs and be at training camp. The coaches will decide based on their first-hand analysis of his character and his abilities whether to put him on the 53 man roster or not. Remember, it's a one year deal with an insignificant bonus, so they aren't hamstrung to keep him if they don't like what they see.

Another OL player. Not a big surprise. We are trying to find the diamond in the rough. Here is what I say.

If Carr is sacked hard 2 times in a game, then we should calling running plays for the rest of the game. Make the OL work for there money. Of course, we would not win very many games this way so we would then be able to select an OT in the top 10 pick that we will get.

If he isn't sacked really hard twice, then we stick to the gameplan and win.

Well he did play well and maybe he can get back to that form. I am glad we are at least bringing in somebody to nudge Seth.

Take it for what it's worth, which sounds pretty accurate given the current info on this thread.

we we'd lose davis to a major injury about the second game of the season ! and prolly get the number one overall pick in next years draft. And next year i wanna be picking in the high 20s even 30s !!!!!

Lets run that by David and the rest of the coaching staff and see how they feel about that.

Default Victor Riley,

Sorry Houston Fans, but this guy is horrible. He single handedly lost over 100 yards, and prevented the saints from not only scoring, but finishing games off when we were in the lead. It's hard to imagine, because of our 32nd ranked defense, but with being one game away from the playoffs, Victor Riley was the most prominent reason for the saints failure to score in the first quarter, and red zone. I wish you guys the best of luck, but don't say I didn't warn you when this joker false starts every first and second snap, and he puts Carr on IR. don't let the team press sweet talk you, this guy is the worst right tackle in football, and he might play left tackle for you guys. I really like the texans, and would be for them if the saints go to san antonio, but I'd hate to see carr go down because of this jerk.

An old player that comes in and signs a ONE year contract? I'm not worried about him. He's an upgrade to Spears.

I agree with vinny.. People are acting like Riley is starting ... well if was was a RT...do you think we'd take over Wade's spot? uhhh NO..
LT...if he is so horrible in pass blocking and commits false start penalties.. why does anyone think that he would take over Wands spot then?

Victor provides depth behind Wade only he is not a LT. from ourlads- Victor Riley has all the tools you look for at right tackle, but has a lot of weight problems and is too inconsistent. He lacks the mental makeup teams are looking for. he was the 2nd highest rated OT in free agency, lets hope he gets his head right and realizes this is it.

Welcome aboard and thanks for your insight on Riley in any case Saintsfan. I think Riley will find some time at Right Guard this year too. Weigert seems injury prone.

I like him better on the right side, at RT or RG, I honestly think that he's lost a step or two since he broke his leg. I don't think he has the agility he used to. Which is why he had so many false start penalties. I have no idea how he'd get by at LT, since pass blocking never was his forte. And he's declined in that area since his loss of movement. All that said, I wouldn't be surprised if he did beat out Seth "Broken-Magic" Wand.

But man would I love it if we had a legit LT.
