The Saints visit the Browns in Week 2.
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."
Cadet has seven catches for 49 yards and a touchdown over two seasons.
"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.
