Former App everything Travaris Cadet scored on a four-yard reception in the preseason Saints-Cardinals games last night. He finished with a game-high eight catches for 80 yards and 49 return yards on a punt and kickoff.
He’s turning some heads.
The Saints are loaded at running back, but one player that really has caught my eye has been undrafted Appalachian State halfback Travaris Cadet, who played quarterback, halfback, wingback and returned punts and kickoffs in high school and college. Cadet looks physically a lot like Chris Ivory.
Cadet (6-foot-1, 218 pounds) runs with excellent power between the tackles and has enough speed to be effective on the edge. Unlike Ivory, Cadet is a good receiver coming out of the backfield. He has sure hands, effortlessly catches the ball out front with his hands and has some good wiggle moves out in the open field.
It will be hard for Cadet to make the 53-man roster, but he can play pro football somewhere and coule be on the Saints’ practice squad.
