Saints News, 1/2/15: Saints DBs Unsure Of Where They Fit Going Forward

New, comments

From Mike Triplett: “It’s been a roller coaster for me, a lot of highs and a lot of lows. Inactive for the first time in my career,” White said Monday. “That’s the most frustrating part for me in the offseason, just not knowing. ‘Am I playing well enough?’ Things like that. ... We go into the offseason with questions about Rob [Ryan] being back, our defense being awful, I don’t know what position I’m playing. There’s all this going on. But you only can control what you can control.”
