Saints Wrap Up Minicamp With a Couple Defensive Notes
The biggest rumor out of the New Orleans Saints minicamp this week was that the passing game looked “off”. But with Drew Brees as the quarterback, it’s safe to assume that by the start of the season anything that might be “off” with him will be solved.
But last year’s Saints didn’t have many offensive issues, and no one really anticipated many going into this year. Especially after the team did more to address the offensive side of the ball than they did on the defensive side (with the additions of Ted Ginn and Adrian Peterson).
But as minicamp wrapped up today, a lot of the focus was on the defensive roster, including a great moment with reporters an Kenny Vaccaro. Here’s more from the Louisiana Radio Network:
“Saints minicamp ended today. Kenny Vaccaro told reporters that he wants to be one of the elite safeties in the league. Coach Sean Payon says he likes that Vaccaro is thinking that way.
The Saints have signed veteran defensive tackle Tony McDaniel. The 32-year-old has played 11 seasons in the league and will provide some insurance, if Nick Fairley can’t return because of a heart condition.”
