Travaris Cadet Made The Most Of His Playing Time In Week Nine
New Orleans Saints running back Travaris Cadet got some extended playing time in week nine against the Philadelphia Eagles. Cadet made the team with his electrifying play during the preseason but has yet to see much playing time in the regular season. However, with Darren Sproles missing the week nine contest Cadet got a chance to play.
Cadet, the Saints’ number five running back, only had one carry for five yards in the Saints’ 28-13 rout of the Eagles. Despite his low rushing numbers Cadet still had a big impact on the Saints’ victory. With Sproles out Cadet stepped in as the Saints’ primary kick returner and he did not disappoint.
On his three kick returns Cadet accounted for 80 yards which was good enough for a 26.7 average. Cadet’s 26.7 average helped the Saints get great field position all night and he even had a return for 30 yards. Cadet definitely made the most of his playing time and continued to show everyone why he made the team.
Cadet’s versatility is such an asset for the Saints and I would even compare him to a bigger Sproles. Cadet can do everything Sproles can, maybe not as well but he is not as seasoned as Sproles is. Cadet mostly played as the kick returner and played a little at running back, but he is also capable of playing wide receiver if need be.
Cadet has not gotten much playing time this year but in the time that he has played he has definitely made the most of it. If the Saints can work him into the rotation I think he can give them good production and become a great weapon for them.
