Saints News, 6/30/15: Rookie Stephone Anthony Looks Impressive So Far

New, comments

From the Sun Herald: Working almost exclusively with the No. 2 unit during minicamp and organized team activities, Anthony picked up the defense quickly, made several plays in the passing game and often looked right at home moving at the NFL’s accelerated pace. “I think the game, it’s not very fast for him,” defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said. “He’s been really well-coached in college, he understands football, he loves football, so he’s learning at a very quick rate, and that’s awesome. That you can see with no pads on.”
