Saints News, 6/9/15: Max Unger's Adjustment to Saints is Key to Their Offseason Makeover

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: “Everything’s kind of coming together,” said Unger, who spent his first six seasons in Seattle. "The concepts are similar, but I’m being asked to do some little changes here and there,” Unger said. “You know, you’ve been doing something for a little while, and then changing little steps here, a hand placement there, stuff like that … just kind of adjusting to that.”
