The Saints (4-6) still have a shot at the NFC South division and wide receiver Joe Morgan is going to get his 115th chance to finally prove himself in the Black and Gold.

The Saints also brouht back safety Pierre Warren, a fan favorite during training camp, who some thought would actually earn a roster spot prior to the season. Warren, who was on the Vikings practice squad will be promoted to the Saints active roster immediately.

In other news, the Saints waived RB Edwin Baker, indicating that either Pierre Thomas or Khiry Robinson is finally slated to return from injury.

How do you see the rest of the season going now Who Dat Nation?
