Free agent RB Travaris Cadet is working out for the Jets on Tuesday.

He worked out for Washington earlier this month. Cadet played for Jets OC John Morton with the Saints. It seems unlikely he is signed unless Matt Forte is dealing with a more serious injury than expected.
Sep 26 - 10:43 AM

Free agent RB Travaris Cadet worked out for the Redskins.

Washington has a good passing-down back in Chris Thompson who they just signed to an extension. Unless he is dealing with an undisclosed injury, Washington is likely just updating their emergency list.
Sep 12 - 9:59 AM

The Jets are expected to have interest in free agent Travaris Cadet.

Cadet was linked to New York this offseason before re-signing with the Saints. He isn't a great fit on the tanking Jets, but could provide an upgrade on kick returns.
Sep 2 - 5:49 PM

Saints released RB Travaris Cadet.

Cadet caught 40 passes for the Saints last year, but his fate was all but sealed when New Orleans drafted Alvin Kamara in the third round.
Sep 2 - 4:01 PM

Travaris Cadet isn't expected to make the Saints' 53-man roster.

After setting a career high with 40 catches last season, Cadet is on the outside looking in following the additions of Adrian Peterson and rookie Alvin Kamara. Daniel Lasco is considered the favorite for No. 4 duties. The Saints reportedly have been shopping Cadet for trade, but teams may simply just wait until he's released.
Jul 21 - 9:59 AM

The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reports the Saints are exploring trade options for RB Travaris Cadet.

The Saints re-signed Cadet to a one-year contract this March. Since then, the Saints signed Adrian Peterson and drafted Cadet's replacement in Alvin Kamara. Cadet set a career high in receptions (40) last season. He was reportedly "weighing offers" from the Bills and Jets during his free agency tour.
Jun 10 - 11:42 AM

Saints re-signed RB Travaris Cadet to a one-year, $855,000 contract.

The deal includes an $80,000 signing bonus. Cadet had interest from Buffalo and the Jets, but will stay in New Orleans after setting a career high in catches last season. His return is bad news for Tim Hightower's chances of re-signing. Cadet should open 2017 as the Saints' primary pass down back.
Mar 15 - 4:25 PM

The Houston Chronicle reports free agent RB Travaris Cadet is "weighing offers" from the Saints, Bills and Jets.

Throwing out a lost 2015, Cadet has 78 combined receptions over his past two seasons. He's also a solid special teamer. He's long been a favorite of coach Sean Payton, and could stick in New Orleans.
Mar 14 - 6:16 PM

Free agent Travaris Cadet is visiting with the Jets.

It's Cadet's first known interest. Cadet had 40 receptions with the Saints despite playing behind Mark Ingram and Tim Hightower last year. He can return kicks and would give the Jets a solid pass game specialist.
Mar 11 - 4:25 PM

Travaris Cadet caught 3-of-5 targets for 18 yards and one touchdown in the Saints' Week 17 loss to the Falcons.

Labeled as a running back, Cadet ran the ball just four times this season for 19 yards. As a receiver, he caught 40-of-50 targets for 280 yards and four touchdowns. He's a useful piece in this high-flying offense but really wouldn't fit in anywhere else. Cadet is scheduled for free agency in March.
Jan 1 - 9:24 PM

Travaris Cadet caught all five of his targets for 30 yards and a touchdown Week 15 against the Cardinals.

He added a 16-yard run on his only carry of the day. Cadet ran a nice route and found the end zone from 10 yards out for the Saints' first touchdown of the day, and he saw four more touches in the first half before Mark Ingram and Tim Hightower dominated the work after the break. With at least five targets in each of the last three games, Cadet deserves some consideration in deep PPR formats.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 07:45:00 PM

Travaris Cadet caught 4-of-5 targets for 27 yards in the Saints' Week 6 win over the Panthers.

It's a standard day at the office for the Saints' pass-game specialist out of the backfield. He's not much of a fantasy factor outside of deep PPR leagues.
Sun, Oct 16, 2016 07:28:00 PM

Travaris Cadet caught 6-of-6 targets for 32 yards in the Saints' Week 3 loss to the Falcons.

Cadet didn't register a carry. The Falcons have long been dreadful at covering opposing running backs out of the backfield, and Cadet whipped them all night in the flats and on wheel routes. He also had a long first-quarter catch called back on a weak offensive pass interference penalty. Cadet has a role in the Saints' pass game and is worth owning in deeper PPR leagues. He gets another strong matchup Week 4 at San Diego. Heading into Monday, the Chargers had allowed the most catches for the third-most yards to opposing running backs this season.
Tue, Sep 27, 2016 12:30:00 AM

Saints RB Travaris Cadet caught 3-of-7 targets for 14 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' Week 1 loss to the Raiders.

He "added" a one-yard rush. Cadet was the Saints' preferred passing-down back, drawing four more looks than Mark Ingram and Tim Hightower combined. It's a role that could lead to PPR value if Cadet keeps it, but it's too early in the year to make that judgment.
