The New Orleans Saints hosted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for their season opener this past Sunday. The Black & Gold came away with a 34-23 victory in a key divisional game to start the season 1-0.
Third-round tight end Adam Trautman and undrafted free agent defensive lineman Malcolm Roach were the only Saints rookies that saw playing time against Tampa. 24th overall pick Cesar Ruiz was ruled inactive due to an ankle injury.
Roach saw 23 snaps while Trautman saw just seven. While neither made a huge impact, both have started to carve out roles for themselves moving forward.
