WR Nick Toon looking to take advantage of huge opportunity to crack starting lineup

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Nick Toon was drafted by the team in the 4th round of the 2012 NFL Draft and has patiently waited his turn, but with all the turnover this offseason, the opportunity to grab a starting job is a realistic possibility. Coach Sean Payton said he believes Toon's snaps will go "way up" this season and the wideout is ready to take advantage of a great...

Opportunity is there for Saints WR Nick Toon

The loss in free agency of key New Orleans Saints offensive players looks to be a call for wide receiver Nick Toon to step up his game. Toon, previously buried on the depth chart, now has a unique opportunity to show what he can do, and he's not going to take his shot at becoming the 3rd receiver behind starters Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston lightlly. "Pressure is not...

Saints take back NFC South lead with 31-15 road win over Bears

As bad as the Bears have been lately I had a feeling the game could play out this way, but a fumble inside the Bears’ five by Nick Toon on the opening drive had me fearing the worst. That was followed by a missed 51 yard field goal and terror set in. Despite a disastrous start the Saints steadied their way to a 31-15 win. It wasn’t pretty, it was always perfect, but they got...

Saints relying more on receivers Stills, Toon

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Not long ago, Saints receivers Kenny Stills and Nick Toon merely represented the future of New Orleans' passing game. The young pair, both in their second season on the active roster, now appear to be firmly part of the present as the Saints enter the final four games of the regular season with their playoff hopes in the balance. Stills has emerged as the Saints...

Saints looking for more production from Toon

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Saints quarterback Drew Brees and wide receiver Nick Toon are not on the same page yet, and time is running short for Toon to get it right. ''Obviously, I'm still learning,'' Toon said after Thursday's practice. ''The learning process never stops, so having an open line of communication with the quarterback and the coaches is always good.'' There was a lot of...

Camp Summary: Wide receivers shine for the New Orleans Saints

Thursday saw the wide receivers take over team drills, with guys like Brandin Cooks, Nick Toon, and Marques Colston (of course) looking very sharp. Cooks has been the talk of the camp so far, and if you’ve read any of our other Camp Summaries you know he’s been one of the guys we’ve been most impressed with. He’s showing the burst and quickness necessary to separate from...

Saints receiver battle standing out, with Nick Toon out in front

If you asked most that pay close attention to Saints training camp who the MVP was at this point, after about a week in, I think the majority would say Nick Toon. The corner he’s turned and the consistency with which he’s making plays out there is impressive. His biggest play today was a 40 plus yard deep ball perfectly thrown by Drew Brees where Toon came up with a fantastic...

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...
