Saints veteran Steve Gleason and his family were practicing today. He toured throughout the day with a long list of players, media members and staff. Gleason was recently awarded the Stuart Scott Enspire Award.
Tyrone Matthews continues to spin around the defense. Sometimes it is difficult to track him. He’ll take a picture at free safety, get back into coverage on a play on the weaker side, then attack the edge on the next side. Their ramp up progressed quickly, which is great news for the Saints and their many defensive plans.
Despite moving into a bigger tight end role, Hill is still expected to throw a pass.
Driving back Divine Ozigbo would benefit from the heavy pre-season workload. The former Cornhuskers were listed in the team’s unofficial depth chart with Mark Ingram as the co-second team. While we cannot conclude from an unofficial list, it is notable that he is the most consistently followed behind Ingram and Alvin Kamara.
Ian Book will likely see more Precision Snaps this Saturday then he sees the entirety of the 2021 exhibition lineup. Which shouldn’t be difficult to do as she only took 24 photos last year. The canceled Arizona Cardinals exhibition game certainly didn’t help. But it looks like Buk, who has put in two solid drills this week, should get plenty of opportunities this season.
