Red hot receiver battle: Draft pick Kenny Stills likely has the 3 receiver spot locked up, but Nick Toon, Preston Parker and Andy Tanner are making strong pitches to be in the Saints receiving corps number. Toon is a draft pick from last year, so this decision might come down to Tanner and Parker. The kicking game could be a key. Perhaps Parker can return his way into a roster spot. Andy Tanner has been cut 16 times by the Saints over the past several years, but sparkled last week by hauling in his first two professional touchdowns versus the Texans. Tonight, he's focusing on his special teams blocking to prove he's an all-around asset. Depending on what these young hopefuls show, special teams captain Courtney Roby could be in trouble. 2.

Saints Aquire LB Parys Haralson

The New Orleans Saints acquired Veteran Linebacker Parys Haralson from the San Francisco 49ers. New Orleans gave up a conditional 7th round draft pick for Haralson hinging on the fact he makes the team. I know I know why is this even a story? For no other reason than Haralson can flat out play. In six seasons Haralson amassed 145 tackles 21.5 sacks and three forced fumbles. Frank...

Saints Nation: 5 Things To Look For in Saints @ Dolphins

Thankfully the preseason is about to come to a close, and considering the number of players the Saints have already lost for the entire season I wish they could just forfeit this game.
