Five takeaways from New Orleans Saints minicamp practice

Posted Jun 10, 2014

Cornerback position is in good hands

1.    Jonathan Goodwin sharing snaps with Tim Lelito at center with the No. 1 offense isn’t a bad thing for Lelito. It’s more of a good thing for Goodwin. If the veteran and former New Orleans Saints starter, Goody, can hold off Lelito, it’ll give the Saints quality, valuable depth at the interior line positions and will make Drew Brees feel even more secure when he drops back to pass.

2.    The cornerback position opposite Keenan Lewis will be in good hands. Either Champ Bailey, the future first-ballot Hall of Famer, will claim the spot, or it’ll be Patrick Robinson, a former starter for the Saints. Whoever doesn’t win the spot will be a strong addition to the defensive sub-packages. Another win-win situation. Each has looked solid.

3.    It’s becoming more apparent that the Saints didn’t draft a quarterback because they feel they have a good, young one in Ryan Griffin, who’s entering his second season. Griffin will compete with Luke McCown in training camp for the No. 2 spot behind Brees.

4.    If you were able to see receiver Nick Toon on Tuesday, you had to like what you saw – size, speed, all the necessary tools to make a difference on Sundays. Toon has to take advantage of the extra practice reps he’ll receive while Marques Colston and Robert Meachem have their workloads reduced (coaches know what Colston and Meachem can do, no reason to add unnecessary mileage to them). And he has to transfer the work to gameday.

5.    No one on the team seems to have as much fun at work as defensive end Cam Jordan. Don’t bet against him being better than he was last season, when he was one of the best in the league (12.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, 47 tackles) and was selected to play in his first Pro Bowl.
