Saints News, 8/4/15: Saints Rookie LB Stephone Anthony Impresses

From Mike Triplett at Veteran linebacker Parys Haralson said Anthony’s play has been reminiscent of the presence receiver Brandin Cooks had as a rookie last year, which is high praise when you consider how much the Saints have raved about Cooks’ makeup. “I think right now he’s one of those guys that you look at and you know that in a couple years he’s going to be one of those elite linebackers that actually is a leader off the field and on the field,” Haralson said. “He prepares, he’s smart, he’s physical and he works hard. So I think he’s got a really bright future.”
