Sean Payton speaks highly of Travaris Cadet
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Saints running back Travaris Cadet has received a lot of work in OTAs as the passing downs back in the offense, much like what Darren Sproles did. ESPN has noticed that Cadet has flashed speed and elusiveness, and it could lead to a large role this season

While Cadet has spoken of being a complete player, he has realized that this is "an opportunity that comes around once in a lifetime." Coach Sean Payton is impressed with what he's seen even though Cadet was originally tailored for a rushing role when he first joined the team. 

"He's a guy with good hands, he's sudden with a good change of direction. And I think that is one of the things we'll look for in this upcoming training camp," Payton said. "He's been able to do a lot of the things we've asked Darren to do in the passing game. You just keep building on that. He's a good young talent."

Travaris Cadet gets a lot of work Thursday
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Saints used Travaris Cadet a bunch during OTA workouts on Thursday. According to ESPN, Cadet played a lot on rushing plays as well as passing plays, showing off his speed and elusiveness. While the network believes Cadet is still fourth on the depth chart, they also think he could end up being a replacement for Darren Sproles. Coach Sean Payton suggested as much this offseason.  

Cadet has seven catches for 49 yards and a touchdown over two seasons.

Travaris Cadet positioned to be Darren Sproles' replacement?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Saints coach Sean Payton kicked off Wednesday's meeting with the media at the NFL Owners Meeting in Orlando by saying there were a number of ways to replace Darren Sproles. Then he went on to talk about only one: With Travaris Cadet

"Cadet is a player who has played in that role," Payton said. " ... I don't think you ever replace specifically a skill set like Darren's. It's unique and it's different than really our league's seen in a while for a player like his stature. But with regards to his touches, with regards to opportunities, Travaris is a guy that has played and is now going into his third year."

Payton liked Cadet's skill set to Sproles'.

"He's got very good ball skills," Payton continued. "He's a guy that can run the routes in that tree when you talk about a choice route, when you talk about an option. He can play from in the backfield but he can play from extended positions. That doesn't necessarily mean he's a wide receiver, just means he's a running back in space. So I think he's someone that is very comfortable in that role and I think he can run. I know his first season, '12, he kind of came to camp as a receiver and then we switched him back into running back. But he's a utility player that has gotten better at not just at the core skill sets of being a runner but is very comfortable when it comes to being a receiver out of the backfield." 

Payton further punctuated the discussion by saying he wasn't planning to be any more run-heavy this year than in the past. Since Sproles joines the Saints their running backs have caught at least 140 passes in each of the last three years.

Travaris Cadet could see bigger role next season
by Chris Towers |

After two years with the Saints, running back Travaris Cadet has touched the ball just eight times total on offense. With the loss of Darren Sproles this offseason, that numbers should go up next season, as coach Sean Payton told Cox Sports TV Tuesday.

Sproles' exit leaves behind a pretty big hole in the offense, as he picked up 71 receptions and 53 carries in 15 games a year ago. The Saints have three other running backs in house to work into the offense, however, so Cadet is unlikely to take on all of Sproles' touches.
