Saints add WR Steve Breaston

Payton said in response to the question about Hakim, whose brother, Az-Zahir, played nine seasons in the NFL and was with New Orleans for 2005. Meanwhile, Higgins is part of a tight end corps which features Jimmy Graham, in his fourth season with the Saints, Benjamin Watson, a 10-year pro, and rookies Keavon Milton and Josh Hill. As expected, Brees preferred targets at tight end have been Graham and Watson during camp. Higgins, whos been in four games for New Orleans but was on the practice squad for most of 2011 and 2012, said the Saints expect him to excel as a run blocker. Nelson, a safety who prepped at Destrehan, is in a group that includes Roman Harper, Malcolm Jenkins, first-round draft pick Kenny Vaccaro, Isa Abdul-Quddus and Rafael Bush.

Starter Marques Colston has yet to practice this camp. Joe Morgan , who appeared to have the lead for the No. 3 receiver spot, went down with an unspecified injury in a scrimmage Saturday. Breaston, 29, has spent six seasons in the league with Arizona and Kansas City, but was limited to only seven receptions with the Chiefs last year. Still, Breaston provides some insurance, even if its only temporary. If Colston and Morgan get healthy, Breaston may not make the roster.

With a less-cluttered depth chart in New Orleans and health finally on his side, is it Ingram’s time to make an impact for the Saints ? The running back appears to be off to a good start this summer. The third-year pro received the majority of carries with the first team Monday, a good sign entering a season in which he’s expected to split time with Pierre Thomas .

With a less-cluttered depth chart in New Orleans and health finally on his side, is it Ingram’s time to make an impact for the Saints ? The running back appears to be off to a good start this summer. The third-year pro received the majority of carries with the first team Monday, a good sign entering a season in which he’s expected to split time with Pierre Thomas . Mike Triplett of The Times-Picayune wrote that Thomas “continued to look strong, fast and fluid” in practice, adding that “the buzz would probably be through the roof by now” if this were Ingram’s first camp. The Saints invested a first-round draft pick in Ingram two years ago, hoping he could be the punishing back who could provide balance to the team’s offense. He has been slowed by knee and toe injuries, and his 3.9 yards-per-carry average speaks to the lack of big-play ability. Sean Payton is on record saying the Saints will run the ball more this season.

Is Mark Ingram a breakout candidate for Saints?

“First half and second half of the game, somebody’s always in two-minute mode,” he said. “It’s not often you have a team just sitting on a knee. “In the games nowadays in the NFL, it’s always fast pace, there’s always somebody trying to play catch-up. The two-minute is a big emphasis, it’s a big part of every game played this year.” For a defense that allowed an NFL-worst 7,042 yards last season, finishing games has become just one of many problems the Saints are working to fix. But an offense that was constantly playing catch-up last season hasn’t taken it lightly, either. Last season, the Saints were outscored 129-96 in the fourth quarter.

Brees, Moore unhappy with Saints’ practice

Brees was a little calmer, but still not happy. The reason? The first-team offense went four-and-out during a two-minute drill near the end of practice. The drive ended with a leaping Moore being unable to pull in a pass from Brees. “You don’t want to go out and lose a drill,” Moore said. “When we don’t win that drill, I’m (ticked) off.

New Orleans Saints’ defense a welcome frustration for offense during two-minute drill

The Nuggets eventually prevailed 144-137 in an epic game which went to a record four extra periods – the first time that has happened in NBL history. After nearly three hours, Otago eventually wore down the hosts, with veteran point guard Mark Dickel holding his nerve and hitting six straight free throws in the final minute of overtime No 4. The former Tall Black finished with 27 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds in a whopping 58 minutes. Import Jack Leasure was Taranaki’s star, leading all scorers with 41 points, including two clutch shots to force two extra terms. The Nuggets will play the Nelson Giants in Saturday’s second semifinal at Pettigrew Green Arena. The Giants sealed third by beating Southland 119-110 in Nelson and despite finishing lower will start slight favourites against the Nuggets, who have started to fade after their fast start to the season. The Saints are hot favourites to win their eighth championship after rolling to a 14-2 regular season record – their best winning percentage in franchise history.

The New Orleans Saints have gotten their top wide receiver back on the practice field and signed a pair of wideouts to bolster an injury-riddled group. Marques Colston returned from the physically unable to perform list Monday, and the Saints signed six-year NFL veteran Steve Breaston and re-signed rookie free agent Brent Leonard. Colston missed the first 10 days of training camp with a foot injury. Breaston has 255 career receptions with Arizona and Kansas City. Leonard returns to the Saints six days after being waived.
