Unproven wide receivers must step up for Saints offense
METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Unproven wide receivers are going to have to come through for the New Orleans Saints if they want to stay in the ranks of the NFL's top passing teams.
The Saints have finished fourth or higher in passing rankings every year since coach Sean Payton and quarterback Drew Brees arrived in 2006.
But after trading Kenny Stills to Miami in March, New Orleans enters the summer with only two proven wideouts_veteran Marques Colston (59 catches, 902 yards in 2014) and 2014 first-round pick Brandin Cooks (53 receptions, 550 yards).
Undrafted free agents Seantavius Jones and Brandon Coleman practice with the second unit during Wednesday's OTA workout, the ninth of the offseason. Joseph Morgan, another undrafted free agent whom the Saints released last December, is getting a second chance to make the roster after four injury-affected, up-and-down years.
