The Buccaneers coach by Tony Dungy next year dungy in the go to Indianapolis to be music go to court on. Bowl 2006 that was great moment watching ball. Abuse as it is of course. Also the opener in the media wants it. While thirteenth season in the thirteenth season the Baltimore Ravens game towards that Ravens secondary or seven touchdown that. Or show EST it might trip looking at these things in free tickets on the way this week the black eagle putt took me dollar in salary cap space with out the restructure. The possible restructure quarterback Drew Brees that would clear in seventy dollars to the Saints could walk in the free agency. You know in the neighborhood of seventeen mean dollars if they get a deal done with Drew Brees before march 9 at 3 PM. Reid as he starts now in the back right line for a second there is a three day period where team actually start Monday teams can start reaching out tune. Our players. Agents. Are up team's vice Versa. To express interest and start. Trying to deal they can officially announce that it's like Ian PA report for fuel.

The first round draft also. Nick unreal the advocate joining us you know wide receiver corps stands right now with the black or rating cooks will at least need Coleman. Also yet. You know you with all the slot receiver Cody core 9477. The ultimate basketball team balls out yesterday pretty much. Putting rest the most disappoint basketball season et rouge median recent memory. Mitchell Tigers. Have yet to turn it on at the NCAA tournament. But if you honestly yourself year. I mean it at the Arctic to the one about this team. Gives you any confidence. Tiger's skills. It yet seat. There's nothing about incentives not eligible. For the wooden award because of the EPA. One and done prospect going to be in all likelihood the number one pick in the draft. Morsel all. Season is unable to catch you were beaten cheap ways as a Edinson liking it class Q do you work while meet about it the NCAA allows them. Old rule doesn't make. Is there a little we've got a high school so they can go to college for one year. He really wanted to make is that a deal if he really wanted to make this. Peru it was about being student athlete. They make it stay eligible and have a GPA for three years three years removed from high school. Yet the dude out football it do baseball. It's disappointing. Yeah it. As of expectations around this basketball team sweet sixteen it was only the bar set fair one at that ignited the at the Saints and Carolina play a game today. Kept confidence and rain coats will wasting brain and Coleman as the top three wide receivers. Final four to 601876870. Pizza I'm in the notion that shirt I am confident to break votes yes. Willie Snead nice complementary receiver last year. A thousand yards receiving for a player that was caught by the panthers' practice squad a year ago. But prank call with the players that now we're on a bigger role because of the release of more schools that. Coleman. Are off a slow. Three touchdown grabs altogether. Last year. Is Arafat arts or arts. On thirty catches so last year he got it. It got a little bit of a big role towards the end. I think it. In free agency. The Saints go out there fine. Veteran at 27 when he range. You know. That age. To infuse some leadership. And veteran presence on this one because. The players latest name raincoats Snead Coleman. Ball at three years lots of experience. Not enough rain coat at this point is in his career he's not ready. Well maybe Willie believe yes. But the point still trying to hone his skills are a master his craft. On the Saints don't call and ask him to lead apron and just focus on getting better keep doing your thing. Stretch in the thousand yards receiving years ago. Over eighty catches. He built that. But those theory. Coax Snead Coleman. Atlanta at the plate in today. How confident would you be. Top three guys Bible for 2601870. Text 878 and come back when undergo. Visited with him back on Friday at the at the breakdown at wide receiver corps it's just sports here on W to dwelling about the super Saturday in the books Donald Trump taken Louisiana. Fultz or four on line to be it will come pre jaguar people on line. At that it will come. We divided or united as a culture right now catcher vote like it or call it final 4201870. Text eats. Ate some talk about the Saints there receiving corps course those three players. Released neat article critical of the top three right now for the black and gold and late game and how confident would you be having. Success with those three players nick on a real the advocate Jordan is back on Friday breakdown that very subject areas. Joining us now nick unreal the advocate we'll about it the advocate dot com nick howry on this Friday night moment Omar your good real good first off. So it's a that me as seed your column the comparisons between brainy Coleman a Marcus Colston are obvious McKinney be that guy. I I think that kind to be determined that it act I want back throughout what did all the routes cigarette mustered the plays we were targeted and I mean there's some similarities Coleman's really good our curls that there's there's. Pull them was you know Obama also charge which was kinda went soft spots in the don't know a lot of his girls are we're over the middle where all the instructors outside. And do things that are that that kind they give me confidence that he can he can do those things that it Coleman didn't operate much over the middle I think. What kind of made Colston goodness operatives he knew where to sit knows all over the middle. You could find them aid get mad shaking out of sorts in. It is not over the middle field and we need to see Coleman beat up for it I can go out there and say our percent that he can step in and in so level. I know your big Willie sneak guy you have been for quite some time top three receivers on this team branding Coleman. A branding coach no particular order Willie Snead you trust them that they have a lineup today and play game would you be confident those three players. I get it would depend of their client. I mean I thought at the end of the year they would get it against Jacksonville and Atlanta didn't really look that well placed a crooked numbers out there stood. Some let up well there's overlaps lead a little bit more out of the slot. Took only had two catches that those slot most against that I think he can do some of that so. I think if they didn't out of others eager and had to go to those three guys sharp and Smart coached. Kind of look at their strengths and weaknesses on the bottom up there and get him out there. And positions to succeed there you would just kinda like to have that safety blanket over the middle I know Colston is back on the decline yeah. He wasn't nearly but he used to be last season. You still did some of those things that I think. Whether it's going to be called himself hopper's meter cooks adjusting what they do a little bit they need to try to mention in some form or fashion. Hey felony gun hill the advocate here on WL at nick underscore on the hill on Twitter in. How they use Coleman last year to the use of wrinkles and troll could you explain that. He mostly played on the outside you know calls them a lot of it is targets came from. In inside position other slaughtered just inside that is the in the end sometime and it up the slot receivers to the outside a minute you're on the table I'm kind of able to track earlier probably the most of his rocket from in front of the field and some former fashion you didn't really work the perimeters too much in what Coleman that he used more on the outside. He didn't come over the middle much I think he ran maybe seven slant circles see them a couple routes that. Predominantly you worked outside the numbers and you show longer up there but he got better this season monologue. But I I really I mean if you just gonna try to. Look at one guy season compared to the other by picture. That there's a good comparison Mac. Kenny slide inside. I think. I mean he's a big body guy yeah ground swell I think. Yet some success. Burke or out door out I think that was serve multi played in the slot where it seems and I respect. I think he can do it but it. Again we didn't see him out so it's kind of a projection and when you're talking about being that the third receiver on this team and ideally burger Seagram's you can get 7585. Catches. It kind of a stretch so I I would feel more comfortable are top abort the middle jewel more cards and say okay you care what it calls them. Again I think he can do it the there's a little bit of guesswork involved. Riddle me this nick underhill the advocate at nick undergo under scarred and make underscore unreal I should say riddle me this. So right now Willie Steve branding Coleman Brennan cooks. Then may make skates you know like they signed a futures contract the holiday Prater. Do you expect them though to add an elder statesman of that group I mean a veteran wide receiver because. I typically they've had that. Whether it goes back to David Patten Marques Colston Devery Henderson ME guys that. Just one guy in that room that can be the leader regardless if he's the top target just the veteran presence do you expect that in there. I would like them to I think it would be get idea I don't know to me and expensive guy to come and in the end you know. A top tier free agent that they used to have a better and better presence somebody back and kinda go in there and help these young guys develop. They've practiced out and some study habits and all that. The men just maybe to compete with Coleman and if colon got the job we went about that's great but it. I don't know if he's at a point were. They should just rely upon that they've relied on Joshua last year with al-Qaeda aura and I colon and chuck it shows her brother got a really all season. When the season comes around bullies need when that that their job. Josh holes just wasn't he was shot Davies jumping in on the game anymore I mean it. I don't think this should take anything for granted it is are you in the other there's some potential is set up better presidential leadership would probably go along way what is. A very young mark receiver amounts. He told the story nick about Eli apple in the Falcons. Are you got me incredibly flimsy NFL gonna CI a look announce enough. That he. And that that was probably one of the dumbest thing that I regret not want to. I just I don't know how you're just gonna upbeat guy that question. I mean I don't it. I'm really not sure what the it's just a really dumb thing I mean who cares for the guys doing in his personal life coach said the vote he's doing I mean. What would see you know. I'd love and I go to an article I was right and appropriate we'll what are the role go to the -- I mean look who's the coach to say what if you look at coaches get a big deal who can't. CO that the good point it's just not a road anybody should be gone down and 2016 I mean come off. A calculus anyway I ala two runner to second the first mend some business to attend to we found out the Saints are going back to the Greenbrier. For training. Our guard. That's the what are our man ethnic you know this is gone so low. We're gonna have to have that rematch. Team Brett. Team or team TV. Football media bull too. I'm just wondering. If you gonna come up with a better scheme for us as our Bill Belichick as our coach other than the speed defense can you help us out with this. Yet that water under the proper arm stronger in my answer that sort of tell you defense. I bumping packing goes there and this time I played six feet two year old man that are willing to run my team and we could be deterrent prince watcher you. Essentially you're playing quarterback. On public conduct that would inspire lecture or. Actually doubt the mock I look like seven interceptions. And no. As brutal man looked bulldozer that's got its confidence and millions and I'm roots. It's hard manned by you know. Back gamely hit big goal well we were humiliated at it and I that is I've chicken back yet. Yeah well we need jolt so make sure you jeweler tonight there. Nick thinks about for the time men appreciate it have a good week in argued you paper yeah they're gonna know the advocate a go back on Friday breaking down. The Saints wide receiver core here or there to this story about Eli apple and the Atlanta Falcons and are you about that but that it them a strange question. At the combine not strange. I'm very very. I think inappropriate question. I'll explain Athens news headlines are welcome back it's just sports here. On WWL and as I mentioned their before the news Eli apple Ohio State defensive back at the combine. Week and a half ago interviewed by a Falcons assistant. And you know these players. Go through a series of questions personal one on one interviews at last about fifteen minutes in last no longer than fifteen minutes at the combine and you know we've seen questions oh I used all year cat. If your mom hi. Oh yeah you know. To some of these questions silly and I get. Why teams who wanna ask a player if you're on a mountain on a boss in Alaska or 400 miles an hour. Where were you wanna be seated on boss and bodily correct answer there is privacy by. I see why some of those questions are relevant. And I understand that these teams are gonna spend the dollars on a potential first round which by the way Eli apples projected ago. And that range of eighteen at 31. So the Falcons though one of the assistant coaches. Asks him. These gay. This coming out in the interview Eli apple did back on Friday. On 00 local local Comcast sports network show. And you know Eli said Eli apples that he cannot just laugh it off agents that no I'm the coach was on its okay focused you know it's all new faces and a and each at the limited. I guess he wasn't trying to buy the explanation. He wasn't trying to find out assailant Eli apple. Was gay percent per Irsay or what is. Sexual preference bullets. It's sexual orientation was. Is much is was could he be around. Season and I react adversely. However in a normal job interview. You and I walk in different view. They can't ask does that. And I know the rules are sometimes different for NFL for the NFL does it god look at some of the things that they get away with already. But at some point in FL has to step in his say hello. You know here's the guidelines here's which you can mask here's a cute enough and also. The NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy. Says is that this morning clearly inappropriate. At about knowledge we will look into it so my question is what do you think happens whose coach Al that you should loses out percent. But maybe. You know you have to. Find. Some point that. Each step immediately saint Denis it's about mistake draft picks now multiples of the year. But it's into it cut. Befuddled me because. A league hit as. Sensitivity training. Within you know the league for each team and also a new domestic violence group. Policy. At the Ray Rice incident when it's going to take is one of these gay pride organizations. To really rays think about this unit though have to Clement. It takes and I don't think teams need to. Don't need it even if they RK what does it matter can play. That's ultimately what every team is trying to answer about all these prospects right now even the ones that have character answer. Off the field. Innate poise and help the team. Three point 8% of the population the American population identifies as yet. There's 16100 players in the National Football League. If you go by three point 8% at 16100 it's and it's 61. 61 player to actually god a five K in the national football that's to our team. So it's already there it's already been done Michael Sam. C'mon what are we gonna stop making this a big deal. If a team's off limits as well as you pleased when he goes there. Has no bearing I think optimize ability when he and oh by the way if I'm. Obama player on. All they have a problem with my sexual orientation. That they do I don't know that I want to play there play for them. And these coaches. What they were would've won the coaches. Does that matter now he's gonna count on shall ever work every day at work. The other game plan coaches whose players are relevant. I'm gonna CBS news update here just double seconds. About sixty seconds here will get to that phone lines open a final four to 601878. Taxed 87870. What do you think should be NFL. Have some tour policy as to what these teams can acts. There are players or prospective players. Coming into the league at the combined Senior Bowl etc. these one on one. Interviews 26018786878. Him at the CBS news and sad news to hear certainly that Nancy Reagan has passed away for First Lady. Wife of Ronald Reagan president United States just heard that CBS news update our 2000 ago here on it's just sports show weighing in on WW on. The show Joni wood to. Not to market and Goodman song in my world I think I think it's a big deal that. They're apt or this is a conversation. Than which players because on. They're very much one key like in an advantage hours again. Days they interact with each other on such a personal level. When you start happening just a few people. Not like certain person due to sexual orientation I think you're. The blow up between. And I just think because. The close nature. I think they should be. Open about what this actual orientation. You know my job title now the leash dollar deal with people. But that closely. I think he's on you and I think they should be okay. If they're not on them you know merit again deal. I don't the problem with that. Joseph here's a deal on I get it. I it would your point is about the schedule risk running of you know alienating a player too because of their sexual orientation team record. Have an impact and how the team fox how the organization function functions right. But just because you take a shower a group shower. In net sitting in the locker room after practice after game. Just because you're in the shower with somebody who might be gate doesn't mean they're trying to get chewed. And we got and those of who might be used old totally uncomfortable by that news in the fact that the shower with somebody who has different sexual preference that Nate. But I tell you from a guy that was in the military. And you had to take the showers. I never really was concerned with of my shower with somebody who might be a and it they were oh so I mean they L it's like. Its like American wedding it's not Steve's deplore the one that not every gay person army and wants to sleep. It's just. Is not the way it is so for me he. It doesn't matter if this if somebody were gay I don't care can help me in to help me. You know for military it was I've really didn't care and I was there in the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy. There are 1000 in. And I never really thought about it because. Was that I can go out there and do his job. If he if he gets a yes and he proved that. I didn't care didn't bother me if I'd take a group shower and he happened to be shower at the same time I I just never was. That. Deck crazy eyes and didn't bother me but. I I understand Joseph at least recover from in terms of you got to find out but I I just think that it's if it has no bearing. And these teams. At what point are they gonna have to. They're still live in the seventies a lot of these questions. At what went well I have a problem when it's sixty. This society. It still living in the it doesn't matter what the issue. You can almost pretty much guarantee. That that will never be every. Who agree. With. All flowers yeah and that's our. Well that's what makes everybody that's what makes this country great and I give it. Once you start doing it not personally. I don't have a problem. It's not an issue for me. I'm just looking at it on the other side going on yet there are some people. Out there that can be completely inadvertently discussed it. Munich Collins is really in tune. And then it it just one thing it's buying and plop plop him out there on what. Channel to see that I actually think it all. I think a lot of Rasho I think locker rooms and NFL dislike in the military if so many similarities specially football. They would actually Embree and knew it would be an issue I don't think you'd be it be an issue is is maybe you know I sit in on the outs I would think it would be. Ryan wood or I don't know like Joseph if the other thing at this a mix at this joke. You know. Eli apple thing truthful cooperative Eli apple when he was asked about it. In the count laughed it off and that would probably be my response. That would be my response I kind of just laugh like hell in a look I know come on I'm not it at all and at some heat but. I could see where somebody else who might be gay would be upset and offended by that being asked that question. Want Joseph to the other Josie. On line two you're on to be able to Gypsy. Think that it is you may get back it would have been in question not. Concerned sexuality is he be to get a ride now. Mean sure yeah. Because I don't know if you remember and we felt that big milk you know we the what did the Steelers mean and it's Cincinnati. You're spending all this money on the back and potential player in their reacting to trash talking he can't focus on the game itself. They've been doing it for quite contaminate. The question during interviews please see what kind of reaction you're gonna get a player if Pete going to be able to handle criticism. Heard trash talking. Scored just. Focused on what keeps up these could be. Now come we gonna get real here they've been doing gate thing for last three years since Michael Mahan came it's no big deal with it. It is or do you. Notice evaded a big deal the NFL's about the making a big deal Gypsy Eldorado I know what your. I know what you're getting at terms of the New York Giants and Carolina Panthers in a way. Josh Norman and O'Dell Beckham junior got into it and cost O'Dell Beckham junior one game being etc. because of trash talking from Josh film but guess what. You can find out how player handles pressure in adverse situations. And Taylor what. You got five now. There are at a much. Yeah tiger. Joseph take care there's other ways you can buy that stuff if you really want UG two on these players. That. Just a matter 5042601870. Text 8787 each of sports Gionta beat him well are it's just sports. Kristian garic here on WWL. Hey mark you're on W developing for a call the Sheldon. Yeah sure. And that all you know them. What part about the receivers in buddies. That got. Have some different people want you to pick out these is going to be on the ball you know what I would like to SC. I'd like to see him play with these new receivers. In the preceding games. At least a quarter so they can work down there the route and the timing. And everything. That goes to get inside the game in and I think that that. What we hold true Brett you know up until like. The last preceding game importantly Africa or. I don't think that's helped about it if to make it look like the timing was off. A lot in the first half this season and that you know. I'd like to me that. And about that. I know they worry about injuries but you never know what game or what place it's gonna get injured so. That's just saw. Marc I agree with you. Together and actual pre season game as much as it is an entire offseason now that you'll have. Back to back with some of these new receivers released need another offseason. With Drew Brees during the OTAs the throwing sessions with branding Coleman's OT eighth throwing sessions the mini camps and training camp practices. The reps that they take throughout the offseason that's more valuable honestly. For those guys I think in that pre season game that. You know really these guys are not playing at full gain speed and you start to learn the chemistry as you say how do you expect what are you what what does Drew Brees expect a certain route. And I think that comes from just by listening and in an asking drew about that very subject. That's the thing that he points to immediately is it's not always pre season wraps as much as it is. An entire offseason of reps to be able to go back with that wide receivers that you remember. Early in the spring this is the wrath that we encountered this early this college Iran this week and expect the football so. I'd give it I still think the approach for the pre season games. Is right for the New Orleans Saints in terms of you know playing. Guys limited number of snaps you don't want to get hurt. I think it's really more about the quality of work that you ultimately get done in the off season. During March April may June in mini camp and training camp etc. I come out next hour rule take a look at some free agents out there for the New Orleans Saints and possibly on the radar. Also give you my take on Tyree Robertson not being tendered as an. Restricted free agent last week as well what that means for his future it's just sports rolls on its Debbie didn't well I met him in WB well.
