Brandon Coleman not safe!

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett suggests Brandon Coleman's roster spot isn't assured.

Triplett writes "Coleman will need a strong preseason to secure his roster spot" after the Saints used a second-round pick on Michael Thomas, who is a similar style of player but far more talented. Triplett's statement is particularly notable because another Saints beat writer recently suggested Coleman was the favorite for the "big slot" role over Thomas. That never seemed likely.

Re: Brandon Coleman not safe!

Agree, We will likely only keep 5.

With Harris coming on strong and Cooks, Snead guaranteed spots...

1. Cooks
2. Snead
3. Thomas

That leaves 2 spots for the final 5. Those spots typically are filled with WR's who play ST's. Coleman doesn't.

So he's competing with veteran Vincent Brown and upstart RJ Harris.

I still think he has the inside track, but he'd better turn it up a notch.

I agree with ya Danno but I don't know who I'd rather have at this point, Brown, Harris or Coleman. Like you said he better step it up because Harris is hungry and Brown is a vet that knows the game.

Just glad that we have a good competition at WR. Harris has a good deal of buzz. It is a little early to make these calls. We'll find out more as training camp opens and preseason games play out. Can't wait.

Re: Brandon Coleman not safe!

I think Coleman is a lock, just on his size alone.

Coleman 6'6"
Thomas 6'3"
Fleener 6'6"

Good luck defending that in the redzone

Re: Brandon Coleman not safe!

WR is all up in the air and young so if the talent is there why not?

If we circle back to the end of last season, Cadet was lined up as a WR (was productive) & has the ability to play special teams making BC expendable in my opinion.

Competition is good.

A bit early for me on this one. This will probably answer itself weeks from now. I never rule out 6 wr's on this team because....Payton.

Re: Brandon Coleman not safe!

The trends over the last decade would indicate that Coleman either takes a major step forward in year 3, or he really never will.
