Saints receivers coach Curtis Johnson impressed by depth (1 Viewer)



Sports Talk with Bobby Hebert

There's no doubt that one of the fiercest battles to watch in Saints training camp this summer will be the competition at wide receiver. After Wednesday's minicamp practice, WWL's Bobby Hebert and Kristian Garic caught up with Saints receivers coach Curtis Johnson, who said the unit is certainly deep this offseason.

"This is one of the best problems I've ever had," Johnson said. "We've got a lot of guys who can do a lot of different things. They function very well within the offense.

I get the impression that everything he said in the interview was directed to them and not the media or us.
