  Saints | Eight signed to future contracts    Wed Jan 12, 11:15 PM

The New Orleans Saints signed OG Roger Allen, QB Sean Canfield, FB Jed Collins, OG Brian De La Puente, TE Tyler Lorenzen, CB Mark Parson, RB Chris Taylor and WR Andy Tanner to reserve/future contracts Wednesday, Jan. 12, reports Adam Caplan, of FOXSports.com.

Footballguys view: The player to watch here would be RB Chris Taylor. He used to be with the Houston Texans and has good leg drive when running between the tackles. The Saints backfield may look different next year, especially if they decide to move on from Pierre Thomas.

  Saints | Questions at backup quarterback    Sat Jul 24, 03:38 PM

The New Orleans Saints have questions at backup quarterback entering training camp, reports Matt LeBlanc, of HoumaToday.com. The team enters camp with QBs Chase Daniel, Sean Canfield and Greg Paulus competing for time behind starter Drew Brees.

Footballguys view: Daniel has been developing under Sean Payton, but might not be ready to do more than hold a clipboard on Sunday. We think Paulus is just a camp arm, and Canfield could stick around on the practice squad but has limited upside.

  Saints | Sean Canfield signed    Mon Jul 19, 02:08 PM

The New Orleans Saints have signed seventh-round draft choice QB Sean Canfield to a four-year deal, a source told Aaron Wilson, of the NationalFootballPost.com. He will receive a base salary of $320,000 in 2010, $405,000 in 2011, $490,000 in 2012 and $575,00 in 2013. The deal also includes a slotted signing bonus and a fourth-year escalator clause that can significantly boost the maximum value of the deal.

Footballguys view: Our very own Cecil Lammey and Matt Waldman watched Canfield up close during the week of practice at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, AL earlier this year and they were not impressed. Canfield did improve slightly over the course of the week, but several of his passes were off the mark and lacked velocity. The Saints likely see him as a candidate for the practice squad as a developmental quarterback.

  Saints | Chase Daniel unlikely to be No. 2 QB    Tue May 11, 03:17 PM

ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas reports New Orleans Saints QB Chase Daniel likely will not be the team's No. 2 quarterback this season. Daniel likely will compete for QB Sean Canfield for the No. 3 quarterback job.

Footballguys view: Daniel is simply not ready to be the main backup behind Drew Brees, although he could develop into that next year. He's a short quarterback like Brees, and can make plays with his feet when the play breaks down. However, his accuracy suffers when he's forced to throw on the run and he has trouble diagnosing what defenses are throwing at him. Head coach Sean Payton watched him in high school, and Daniel should beat out seventh-round pick Sean Canfield.
