Interesting. I'm guessing/hoping this means no more Donald Thomas.
Worst case scenario = no more Brian Waters.

I liked Tennant as a C coming out. He did remind me of Koppen.

He was with the Saints during Pats/Saints joint practices, similar to how the Pats traded a late pick for Ojinaka a few years ago.

Liked him a lot coming out of college. Wonder what this means for McDonald/Thomas?

5th round pick in 2010 for the Saints from Boston Collage, ran 5.16 at 6-5, 300 pounds.

Played 28 games in 2 seasons, no starts.

I'd feel better if he was a tackle.

Not sure if you want to call it conflicting reports or not... but Reiss says we claimed Tennant [which makes a lot more sense], we didn't sign him like a FA.

I'm pretty sure we can't even sign him as a FA yet, so he had to be claimed.

He isn't a vested veteran.

I liked him coming out as a Center prospect, I remember wanting the Pats to draft somebody from BC and he was considered by some to be a second round guy at one point. I remember watching him fill in at some point for the Saints and I thought he fared well. I like this signing overall for the depth of the interior line but I think it could be a hint that Waters might not be close to coming back.

I'm starting to think Waters isn't coming back. Training camp is over, he should have been back by now. grrrrr, I hope I'm wrong.

He didn't join last year's team until this time (actually a day or two later)

If he's not here Wednesday, I'll be concerned.

He got very limited playing time with the Saints but he was alright in pass protection. He's a good athlete with good length, he really struggles in run blocking though. He isn't very strong, he gets pushed around quite a bit.
