Cameron Heyward a Good Fit for the Saints?

The Times-Picayune has a good piece on the son of former Saints RB Craig “Ironhead” Heyward. The story is on son Cameron, who could be a good fit with the Saints in 2011 at the DE spot.

“I don’t want to live in his shadow,” Heyward said. “He was a great player and he’s always in my heart. I appreciate everything he’s done. But I want to do everything by my own. I’m not asking anybody to give me a second look or anything just because my dad was ‘Ironhead.'”

Although, Heyward added, “They all know I have a big head just like him.”

Heyward said he chose to play at Ohio State instead of Pitt because Pitt was “my dad’s school.” However, he insisted that he would be perfectly happy to follow his dad’s footsteps to New Orleans, where he could join former Buckeyes Will Smith and Malcolm Jenkins – two former first-round picks who have paid off for the Saints.

“It’s fine with me. Gold and black, I’ll do it,” Heyward said. “Malcolm is there and Will Smith is there, and I know a couple guys well. If I got a chance to play for that team, I would truly cherish it because it’s a great opportunity.”
