Saints News, 6/1/15: Seantavius Jones, Brandon Coleman Seizing Opportunity So Far

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: “Man, light years ahead of where they were, even just at the end of last year,” Brees said of Jones and Coleman. “You can tell that it’s just been at the forefront of their mind throughout this whole offseason. And then look at what’s happened here, Kenny Stills gets traded, Jimmy is gone, just certain things where they see this opportunity that’s kind of out there for the taking.”
