Finally, the New Orleans Saints take the field to play an actual game. Many rookies will be making their first appearance in Black and Gold and here are 5 to watch.
The New Orleans Saints play the Cleveland Browns in their first preseason game for 2017. The off season seemed to drag on forever. At any rate, it’s time! All those drills and practices in sweltering heat was setup for this moment. Especially for the rookies that come into the Black and Gold uniforms for the first time.
There are plenty of rookies that will take the field on Thursday night to try and make a statement. Regardless, if that player was drafted or not, rookies have one chance to make a first impression. Arguably, one play could mean a spot on the team or even the practice squad. In my opinion, there are five players to keep an eye on this game. Some of these players have been picked in the draft, and others are just trying to make the final cut.
