The New Orleans Saints are back once again for another round of OTAs. It looks like heads are spinning over some of the team’s new acquisitions.

Here at Who Dat Dish we like to keep everyone updated with the latest and greatest news. It looks like today is no different with the latest New Orleans Saints players making headlines for their impressive work during OTAs.

The New Orleans Saints have a while before the team prepares for its first regular season game against the Minnesota Vikings on MNF. The progress being made during the offseason should still be discussed though.

Unfortunately the Saints did not meet expectations for last season or accomplish what the team wanted to do. Naturally the Saints want to improve. That improvement could result directly from the additions the team made during the offseason.

Ted Ginn Jr.

We here at Who Dat Dish have already been mentioning Ted Ginn Jr.’s name for some time. He could have a much larger role now than ever before, now that he’s with the New Orleans Saints. It looks like we weren’t wrong for mentioning him. Ginn has already impressed players and writers at OTAs.

The former Carolina Panther, among other teams, looks mighty sharp and agile on the field despite his age (32).

After the loss of WR Brandin Cooks, who went to the New England Patriots, the Saints needed to bring someone in to the offense. When they signed Ginn, I was shocked. But I knew it was a very solid acquisition. I was excited because I knew Ted Ginn Jr. has the potential to succeed in this offense.

The experienced veteran has not only the capability to make game-changing plays, but the knowledge, wisdom, experience, and talent to thrive with Drew Brees at quarterback. The talent Ted Ginn Jr. possesses will allow the receiver to succeed in this systematic offense. Granted, Ginn might drop a few passes. But overall this acquisition was the right move for the New Orleans Saints. This mixture of Michael Thomas, Willie Snead, Ted Ginn Jr, and Brandon Coleman will be a lethal group of receivers for the Saints. Drew Brees reportedly is already calling Ted, “Teddy” because the two have bonded already. That shows hopefully good signs for this offense.
