The New Orleans Saints didn’t disappoint when it came to hosting some of the most exciting battles at training camp.
Starting rotations got mixed and matched, receivers put in the work, corners picked up the pace, and for every “dominant” pass Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill completed, a new article got written and published.
The Saints also brought in a group of new veteran signings that upped the ante and the competition. Everybody, rookie or not, has something to prove at camp, and after four grueling days of practice the initial grades are in.
Some previously overlooked players impressed, and their stock has started to rise. Others didn’t live up to the hype, and their stock has started to fall.
In the fickle training camp market, though, nothing is for certain. Nothing is guaranteed.
All it takes is a nagging injury, a misplaced pass, or even just a tired showing for players’ grades to fluctuate, and there’s still plenty of camp left to go.
So call this harmless speculation (or a sportswriter’s self-indulgence) and take everything with a sprinkle of salt.
As of today, these are 4 Saints players whose stock has changed dramatically during training camp.
