Saints QB Drew Brees on WR Nick Toon: "I think he has come along extremely well. I’ve been very impressed with some of the things I’ve seen from him out here. He’s another big target that can run well, he transitions very well for a big guy. You watch the way he catches the ball sometimes and it’s so confident, he goes and he goes after it and plucks it. He’s very natural and confident when he catches the ball which you like to see. I think he can have big contributions on this team. I know that it’s extremely competitive with the receiver position right now with a lot of guys fighting for spots but he’s certainly right in the mix.”
Toon is going to struggle to see snaps behind Marques Colston, Kenny Stills and (probably) Brandin Cooks, but he appears to be earning a roster spot with a strong offseason.
