NFL Rumors: New Orleans Saints Wide Receiver Adrian Arrington Is Poised To Claim The Fourth Receiver Spot
The New Orleans Saints have opened training camp and some players have impressed early on. Specifically, wide receiver Adrian Arrington has been one of the bright spots for the Saints during training camp. Arrington has definitely been the “star” so far for the Saints’ training camp.
During practice Arrington has been making many great catches and beating defenders more often than not. Arrington’s good play early on bodes well for him to be a regular receiver and earn some significant playing time.
Arrington has been with the Saints since they selected him in the seventh round of the 2008 NFL draft. Arrington has been a loyal, hardworking player for the Saints and has bided his time quietly on the sidelines.
Arrington has even turned down offers from other teams just so he can stay with the Saints. Arrington’s patience might finally pay off as he is the most likely candidate to claim the fourth wide receiver spot on the Saints’ depth chart.
Nothing is official yet on the Saints depth chart, but if Arrington can continue his play he will surely lock up the fourth receiver spot. Arrington’s biggest competition in training camp thus far has been wide receivers Nick Toon and Joseph Morgan. While Toon and Morgan have also had solid training camps Arrington clearly has the edge against the two.
Not only has Arrington been having a great training camp but he has more experience. Arrington knows the Saints system and given his height and speed he could be a solid option for Saints quarterback, Drew Brees.
Arrington has become a better route runner and has shown in camp that he can beat his man. Arrington is poised to take the fourth receiver spot and he might also be poised to have a breakout season.

Breaking down Dri Archer and his role(s) on the Pittsburgh Steelers roster
It's amazing how much changes in one year. Last training camp, writers like me were simply gushing over the possibilities Dri Archer's 4.26 speed could bring to the Steelers offense in 2014. The only caveat was his size (5'8”, 173 lbs). To compensate for Archer's lack of girth and muscle and to best utilize his speed, getting Archer out in space, away from those big, angry defenders looking to throw him around like a rag doll, would be key to him making an impact in his rookie season and beyond. Will he find a spot on the Steelers 53-man roster? Read More
