The Saints will be back in 8 days, a week from Friday, for their home opener against the Jaguars. As always you don't want to take much away from a...
The most intriguing battle so far in camp has been the cornerback position which has seen the backups get a number of looks. Both starters Jabari Greer (groin) and Patrick Robinson (shoulder) are out with what are considered minor injuries.

That might come as a surprise because the secondary...

He has now played in 5 games in his first two years with the Rams and he has 7 tackles and 3 passes defensed. This will hurt the depth...
