Drew Brees: There's not a guy I trust more than Brandon Coleman



Mike Triplett
ESPN Staff Writer

METAIRIE, La. -- Just when the buzz had started to die down around New Orleans Saints receiver Brandon Coleman, he has come into his fourth training camp and cranked up the volume.

The 6-foot-6, 225-pounder has been a constant presence throughout the first four days of practice -- adding at least one deep ball to his daily repertoire.

He drew some huge praise from both Sean Payton and Drew Brees on Sunday. Payton singled Coleman out first when asked which players have stood out to him. And Brees paid Coleman the ultimate compliment.

"There's really not a guy who I have more trust in than Brandon Coleman, honestly," Brees said. "I've played with him now for a long time, and I feel like he's a guy that can play every position. He can play X, he can play Z, and he can play inside. So his versatility in this offense is really good, he's a very smart player and he's been a guy who's just done whatever we needed him to do over the last few years.

"Obviously, with [former Saints receiver] Brandin Cooks being a featured guy and with Michael Thomas coming on last year and with Willie [Snead] getting his touches, Brandon's just kind of had to get in where he could fit in. And yet, there have been those moments where he's come up with some big plays, some big catches, some big third-down conversions, a go route, a vertical.

"He's just a big target that I have a lot of trust in, and I think we've had enough time on task together from training camp to just time that we spend on our own together where there's just a great amount of confidence I have in him."

Now before you say, "We've heard this before," that is not exactly true.

6'6" on one side. 6'3" on the other side. I really hope Brandon Coleman pans out this year.

I've suspected Coleman's problem is his confidence more than anything else. I didn't think he'd be able to overcome it. Hopefully I was wrong.

Throw Corey Fuller in the slot at 6'2" and Drew will quickly fall in love with the set.

Coleman may have had the light turn on finally. huge plus.

I think he did. Watching him late last season he seemed to start getting much better with his routes and hands. Fuller would be a huge addition if he can keep it up. Defensive matchups from hell. We could be great in the red zone. I do get excited about the O. Still waiting for the D to excite.

I like what I'm hearing. I hope Coleman has turned up his game and we have another weapon.

There seems to be a little more legitimate buzz about the team than normal this offseason. I think they are getting hungry again like we haven't seen in a while. Hoping for 10+ win season but we need improved some players, like Coleman, to help us ascend.

Awfully nice of Drew to say that, and I get why he's saying it, but we know the truth
