Nick Toon, the Saints' fourth-round draft pick out of Wisconsin in 2012, not only has he come back completely healthy but he has returned stronger and wiser and that has been obvious during the first three days of preseason camp.
Much like last year, the 6-foot-4 receiver has shown flashes of being a big-play receiving threat in the Saints' offense. His size and speed have thrust him in the mix for one of the third or fourth receiver spots.
Toon stood out during Sunday's practice, the first session in pads, making several impressive catches from Drew Brees and other quarterbacks.
Toon is getting time without Marques Colston participating right now. He's doing his best to create a logjam among Saints receivers, which already consists of Colston, stud TE Jimmy Graham and Lance Moore, along with RB Darren Sproles.
