Saints News 9/17/13: Saints Re-Sign CB Chris Carr

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

The eight-year veteran was re-signed today, according to a tweet from his agent, after being cut by the team August 31st. This move is presumably to add depth after Patrick Robinson sustained a cart-off knee injury Sunday against the Bucs. Coach Payton hasn't yet given an update on Robinson, but it's a safe bet that he's probably headed to IR and is likely done for the year. We'll find out tomorrow when the Saints give an official injury report.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Are A Sad Mess Right Now
Be thankful you aren't a Buccaneers fan. It's one thing for an 8-8ish team to bumble around and lose in the sloppy first few weeks of fall. It's another for that team to look like a 10-win team for 59 minutes and a two-win team for one. Of all the ways for an NFL team to arrive at mediocrity, the Bucs have chosen the cruelest.
