Drew Brees revealed how well fifth-rounder Kenny Stills has filled in for the injured Joe Morgan since Morgan got hurt during Saturday's scrimmage. Stills has been running with the first team and practice and the Saints feel like he has progressed.
Stills is not a tall, speedy receiver like the 6-foot-1 Morgan, but Brees said the rookie is starting to catch on -- pardon the pun.
Stills ran a 4.38 40-yard dash is only one inch shorter than Morgan, so he's built in the same mold as the Saints' deep threat receivers (Devery Henderson, Robert Meachem, Morgan) before him. Those players were always boom-or-bust plays due to the inconsistency of the deep game.
