Saints News, 5/29/15: Rookie LB Stephone Anthony Provides Saints' Play of the Day with Interception

New, comments

From Mike Triplett: The first-round draft choice made the play of the day in Thursday's organized team activities -- snagging an interception from backup quarterback Luke McCown in full-team drills. Anthony (6-foot-3, 245 pounds) leaped up high to snatch the pass in the middle of the field -- showing off the kind of athleticism the Saints have been missing for years in their linebacking corps.
