The New Orleans Saints are full of players looking to shine, reclaim roles, return from injury or just simply take their talents to the next level. That high-powered offense down in the Big Easy has been something special to witness, but they seek to improve. With training camp set to get underway, let's take a look at five offensive players to watch for.
He's paid and he's happy. There is no concern about whether or not Jimmy Graham is going to perform well at camp, but what about the relationship between him and his head coach? Sean Payton took the stand against his Pro-Bowl tight end during the arbitration hearing, but if you don't want to keep an on the bond between player and coach, that's okay. Forget that stuff and just watch him do what he does best -- dominate on the field.
Morgan will be looking to bounce back after missing all of 2013 with a torn meniscus and partial ACL tear. With him, Brandin Cooks and Kenny Stills on the field, we could be looking at one of the quickest receiving corps in the National Football League. Watch Morgan at camp to see if he can reclaim his role as the Saints' go-to deep threat.
When the ball was handed to him as a rookie in 2013, Robinson was an animal. He's strong, athletic, explosive and has the ability to truck over defenders. Between him and Mark Ingram, we should see a nice little one-two punch, with Pierre Thomas set as the third-down back. Will we see Khiry take the next step? The potential is certainly there, so watch for him to battle it out for an extensive role in the backfield.
After seeing very little time at left tackle as a rookie, Armstead is set to start his first full season on the offensive line. The Saints' most prized possession is obviously Drew Brees. Other than quarterback, Armstead arguably has the most important role on the field, protecting Brees' blindside. His athleticism and nimble movements are hard to come across at his position, so keep an eye on him at camp. He could be the long-term answer.
Saints fans are ready to see Cooks in action after the team traded up for him in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He was the fastest receiver in his class, one of the best athletes coming out of college and now, New Orleans may be looking at the most versatile player the city has seen since Reggie Bush. Drew Brees' new toy is a special talent with unlimited NFL potential.
