Saints beat writer Mike Triplett was asked if Tarvaris Cadet could be used to replace the Darren Sproles role in the offense:
"That’s entirely possible. I probably haven’t mentioned Cadet as much as I should while writing about how much depth the Saints still have at running back. Obviously there is no way anyone should expect Cadet to replicate what Sproles has done the past three years. But coach Sean Payton did mention Cadet a handful of times late last season as someone the Saints tried to get on the field for a few snaps here and there. Now they’ve got a little more room to do so (even though he’s still fourth on the depth chart)."
