Oh, Adrian Arrington, Your Rookie Season Has Ended Much Too Soon

Filed under: Saints, NFC SouthAbout a month ago, I used this space to pimp seventh-round receiver Adrian Arrington as The Next Big (or at least Very Surprising) Thing. And then Arrington’s first preseason contest he suffered turf toe. Now, the Saints have ended his season by placing him on the IR.

In a perfect world, of course, Arrington plays, catches 100 balls for 1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns opposite of Marques Colston, and has a 13-catch performance as the Saints win the Super Bowl. In the real world, the one where bad stuff unfortunately happens, this is the best move to make with Arrington.

Don’t get it twisted, this turf toe will not sideline Arrington for the whole year. But it will sideline him long enough to force the Saints into deciding whether to let him eat a roster spot or put him on the practice squad. With little experience, more established names ahead of him, risk of lingering injury, and little special teams ability, Arrington wouldn’t have been worth a spot on the 53-man team.

But putting him on the practice squad would have exposed him to waivers, and his performance so far and potential would lead him to getting snapped up right quick. So putting Arrington on the IR will allow him to heal slowly while learning the game better, it will save a roster spot, and give him the ability to compete for a more prominent spot next year.

The fact that the Saints put him on IR means they intend to have Arrington for a next year. I think it’s going to be a pretty good one.
