Coby Fleener. I joked a few weeks ago about him taking a big hit in practice from Vonn Bell that has him "gun shy" but I'm starting to re think that Fleener is nursing some type of injury. It's time to bring it. Of course I'm not expecting him to be Jimmy Graham great but at least Ben Watson good. Minnesota (game #1) will be here before you know it.
I keep reading and hearing on the radio that the Saints know what they have with Fleener and he doesn't really need the reps so they are taking it slow.
That's B.S. at the very least Fleener needs to be on the sideline playing catch with a 12 year old so he can learn how not to drop the ball.

Marcus Williams with a pick, Al Quadin Muhammad with 2 strong wins and Lattimore breaking up several passes.

This is what I like to hear.

^^^^^ This. Turnovers & converting those into points are the way to win football games.

Secondary sounds on point today. Looks like Lattimore is just fine. If his hammy holds up he could be the real deal.

Re: 2017 New Orleans Saints Training Camp

Starting to think this team is better coached and better talent than previous. Could win some games this year

WRC Curtis Johnson > Brandon Coleman, Corey Fuller

DLC Ryan Nielsen > Hau'oli Kikaha, Sheldon Rankins, David Onyemata, Trey Hendrickson, Al Muhammad...

LBC Mike Nolan > Stephone Anthony, Alex Anzalone


So that's three new position coaches with a definite uptick in the performance of those players...

Not too mention how much better A.J. Klein and Alex Okafor will improve as well...

Not holding my breath or holding it against Curtis Johnson, if Ginn still doesn't gain reliable mitts...

Re: 2017 New Orleans Saints Training Camp


Starting tight end Coby Fleener headlines a group of players not observed on the practice field. Fleener has missed two straight days of work for unknown reasons.

Joining Fleener are tight end Clay Harbor, wide receiver Travin Dural, wide receiver Jack Lampman, center Jack Allen, linebacker Stephone Anthony, cornerback Taveze Calhoun, cornerback Delvin Breaux (fibula).

Anthony has missed three straight days of practice, but it is unclear as to what is keeping him from the field.


Tight end Josh Hill, who was not on the field Thursday, returned Friday morning and put in a full practice.

Ted Ginn Jr., who hasn't been on the practice for three consecutive sessions, was on the field Friday, but did not participate in anything outside of the stretching portion of practice.

------------------------------------

Word is that Ginn has been soaking his hands in a softening solution.
