Former Cedar Rapids Washington standout Adrian Arrington made his National Football League debut Sunday for the New Orleans Saints, catching seven passes for 79 yards in his teamís 23-13 loss to Tampa Bay.

Arrington, who played college football at Michigan, was a seventh-round draft pick of the Saints in 2008 and mostly has been on the Saintsí practice squad for three years. He was finally activated for a game Sunday because of several injuries to New Orleans receivers.
