The competition for backup quarterback behind Drew Brees continues to progress, with veteran Luke McCown and youngster Ryan Griffin having submitted an addendum to their respective resumes last Friday in St. Louis.

They’re preparing to turn in another work sample Friday in New Orleans, when the Saints play their preseason home opener against Tennessee at 7 p.m. at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Griffin was one of the offensive stars in a 26-24 victory over the Rams, completing 16 of 23 passes for 179 yards and a touchdown, with no interceptions in five series. McCown, who started in place of Brees, completed seven of 10 passes for 49 yards and an interception in two series.
