Default Why is Rhema McKnight still unsigned?

Any idea why this kid hasn't even been signed to a UDFA contract after not being drafted? Seems very odd.

He's not unsigned. He signed a UDFA contract with the New Orleans Saints.

Hopefully he can contribute to us in some way.. before I start putting him in our WR depth chart, I just hope he has a solid training camp and can find a spot on special teams first.

Is there offense based on dropping balls? Because then he will thrive.

He went to Notre Dame but got injured in 2005 (was a 5th year senior) in 06. He put up some nice numbers, but I don't know the other details on him...(67 for 907 and 15 TD)

I think he should have been drafted, but if Mike Haas couldn't make the Saints with more size, far better hands, and better route running ability, then McKnight has basically no shot. He can run routes and has decent measurables, but that's about it.

he is good in the redzone becuase of his size an dleaping ability, he also has good concentration on the ball when in the air and adjusting to it. I agree that he should have definetly been drafted and he will fit well in New Orleans if used right. I really wish the Bills would have grabbed him, he would have be perfect opposite of Lee Evans.

I disagree. He definately has a decent shot. The two possession type of WRs are Marques Colston and Terrance Copper. The stretch the field type of WRs are Robert Meachem and Devery Henderson. Those guys are locks. The Saints have kept six receivers for as long as I can remember, so that leaves six guys fighting for two jobs:

Jamal Jones
David Patten
Dante Ridgeway
Michael Lewis
Rhema McKnight
Lance Moore

The Saints insist their bottom WRs play special teams. That's why Mike Hass got cut last year while Jones didn't. This means that Patten probably has no shot. Ridgeway and Moore were around last year and couldn't beat out Jones, so it's unlikely they'll do so last year. And the only way Michael Lewis makes it is if he holds on to the kickoff return job. David Jones and Pierre Thomas have the resumes to give him a push there, and Antonio Pittman and Joe Porter have the physical skills to do it. So if McKnight can play special teams (given his physical nature, it seems likely) and live up to his pre-draft billing, he will make the team.

Injuries and camp change everything, but this is my best guess with what we know now.

Don't forget about Practice Squad too. If he doesn't make the Saints you have to imagine they will get him on the PS as long as another team doesn't put him on their team.

I thought of McKnight as a 4-7 round prospect.

I was ecstatic when I found out we signed him. Payton wants his WR's to play ST (the WR's on the bottom of the depth chart) so thats why Mike Hass was cut.

That end the conversation; he'll probably thrive though if he's given a chance like very other wideout in that offense

Rhema McKnight is so inconsistent at catching.Its been infuriating to watch him this past season.

He sucks. Worst hands in the whole draft, makes Joe Thomas' hands look like a pro-bowler's. He's slow, not agood route runner, no ups. Don't expect anything out of McKnight.
