Time is now for WR Nick Toon

Opportunity is knocking at the door for New Orleans Saints WR Nick Toon, who seems to have a clear path for the No. 3 receiverspot.

It may be now or never for Nick Toon

We’re now in year three of the “Nick Toon experiment” and this upcoming season really does feel like the fork in the road for the Saints’ receiver. After a 2012 season spent entirely on injured reserve, Toon didn’t fare much better last season. He turned in a 4 catches for 68 yards 2013, despite a decent amount of time on the field. Put simply, Drew Brees just didn’t...
