Saints selection of WR Toon had Payton's fingerprints on it

METAIRIE, La. — Sean Payton may not be in the Saints’ draft war room, but his fingerprints are all over New Orleans’ fourth-round pick.

The Saints selected Nick Toon, a 6-foot-1, 213-pound receiver out of Wisconsin, the kind of big-bodied, athletic wideouts Payton loves to utilize in his offense.

“He's big like we like to have in our systems,” interim head coach Joe Vitt said. “He's more of a Marques Colston type player. He's 6-foot-1. This is a guy that Sean met at combine extensively because Sean likes big receivers. So it worked out perfect."

That’s not the first time, either, that Toon said he has been compared to Colston. Toon said his offensive coordinator at Wisconsin, Paul Chryst, did the same thing this past offseason while breaking down film.

It’s Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald, however, whom Toon looks up to the most.

“One of the things I really pride about in my game is catching the ball, having good hands and being consistent in catching the ball,” Toon said. “He’s one of the best, if not the best, in the league at catching the ball and being consistent doing that.”

"My dad was a great football player and a great resource of mine growing up," Nick Toon said, according to The Associated Press. "He has been a great sounding board for me throughout my career, my entire life -- a great blueprint as far as a football player. Just a good person and a good leader."

Toon had 64 receptions for 926 yards and 10 touchdowns during his senior season, and he's now joining a Saints offense that knows how to maximize receiver talent. Marques Colston and Lance Moore produce because of their intelligence as well as their athleticism, and Toon should fit right in with that mold.

"He's a real smart guy, so he's going to be able to play more than one position for us," Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. told The AP. "We can put him inside, we can put him outside."

If Paytons finger prints are on this God-all is going to take away future draft picks and screw us any way he can.

I think you're right. I think the deal is done. We're going to use it to block out the bad news about suspensions when that fag RG finally announces it.

Not quite done. Until we know what, if any, suspensions are levied we don't know what cap is available for the deal. If a player is suspended their salary does not count against the cap.
