Don't Sleep on McPherson

It looks like the Miami Herald may have jumped the gun a bit. This according to NFL.com's Adam Schefter [Link].
Despite the fact that he did not play last weekend, and despite speculation to the contrary, the Saints are not going to be releasing fifth-round pick Adrian McPherson, whom the franchise thinks could be their quarterback of the future. He has a roster spot locked up. McPherson has looked lost this summer, even lining up behind guard on one snap. But his talents are too incredible to ignore. He's got a rocket arm, and has worked very hard, showing up at the Saints training facility most every day before training camp to study film.

The Saints quarterback in trouble is Kliff Kingsbury, who spent parts of the past two seasons with the New England Patriots. Kingsbury is practice-squad eligible, and the Saints would like to bring him back there. He's talented -- just not as talented as McPherson or No. 2 quarterback, Todd Bouman.

Ha! So take that R.D. :)
