METAIRIE, La. -- Max Unger isn’t going to generate the same kind of buzz this summer with the New Orleans Saints that tight end Jimmy Graham has already been generating with the Seattle Seahawks.

Mainly because, well, Unger is a center. And the Saints aren’t even practicing in full pads yet.

But the two-time Pro Bowler who came to New Orleans in that blockbuster Graham trade said it’s been “so far, so good” in his transition to a new team.

“Everything’s kind of coming together,” said Unger, who spent his first six seasons in Seattle.

“The concepts are similar, but I’m being asked to do some little changes here and there,” Unger said. “You know, you’ve been doing something for a little while, and then changing little steps here, a hand placement there, stuff like that … just kind of adjusting to that.”

It all start with the five guys up front. Drew Bress can't be Drew Bress without them. Welcome Max.

Even though he doesn't pass block as well he run blocks that's ok.....he's good at both from what I've read and seen on his high lights. I just hope Drew can see over him.

Pressure coming through our guards and center has been the biggest problem we have faced offensively. It has disrupted our entire offensive scheme. He is a much needed addition.

Max is arguably one of the best centers in the league.
