METAIRIE, La. -- The NFL’s No. 1 passing offense doesn’t have a single wide receiver over the age of 24.
The New Orleans Saints keep getting younger -- and better -- at that spot, thanks to the addition of second-round draft pick Michael Thomas, who has a touchdown in each of the past three games.
Really good article. Enjoy!But the Saints’ receivers certainly don’t act their age. All of them have taken on major roles early in their careers, with Brees and coaches lauding them for their maturity and work ethic.
Brees also loves the fact that the Saints got to start molding them from a young age.
“We’re taking these guys right out of college and this is their first team so, ‘This is how we’re doing it, and this is how it needs to be done, and this is what I’m expecting.
