Saints Plan To Start Brees In Preseason Finale
Heading into the final game of a winless Preseason, the New Orleans Saints are making adjustments on the fly. Coach Sean Payton is pulling out all the stops for this week's game with Baltimore, and the front office is still shopping for new talent for the 2016 season. Here's a breakdown of the team's recent activity from the Louisiana Radio Network:
"Saints Coach Sean Payton said today the starters will play in Thursday night’s preseason finale against Baltimore, including quarterback Drew Brees. 2006 was the last time Brees started in the preseason finale. The first-team offense has struggled in the preseason.
The team is also looking to improve its pass rush. They’ve traded a conditional seventh round pick to Miami for defensive end Chris McCain and pass-rushing linebacker Paul Kruger visted the team today.
Two years ago, Kruger had 11 sacks for the Browns, but last year the 30-year-old only had two and half sacks."
