Do you think he'll lead the saints running back corps in carries this year. I'm Steve -- natural early morning look it's. Boards and see what do you guys look for our. To -- guys and girls when you're looking abilities. Yet to meet the main thing was right. Now is because you're not seeing these players have full pads so there's not much if any contact going on. A lot of the things I was looking for right off the bat were the guys that were banged up last year and injured especially you know knee and foot injuries you wanna see how they're moving in they're cutting. The sea of you know everything's okay if they're fluid they're the look and fast out there and obviously some of the receivers you wanna see some of these young guys if they're able to catch the ball. A guy out I was pretty high on coming into this camp was rookie Brandon Coleman who was undrafted. This offseason and the saints picked up in free agency. He's do little case of the drops -- which is not good for him right now and he does look a little he's a tall tall guy at six foot four. And just seems to run awkward is not really that fast so I'm worried that he has roster spot might be in jeopardy. Some drop -- that you really -- take a look at that the for the defense and everything to see how -- Let me jail yet what's -- is -- you're seeing this saints secondary right now has really been giving Drew Brees some fits during these practices. Are getting your hands in a lot of balls even picking off passes. There were times when last week when trump paid even piped in some crowd noise to get this team used to playing on the road. And the first played. With the crowd noise going on senator Tim Alito and Drew Brees had a botched -- so he gets you these team this team is definitely knows where their problem issues are. Are working to correct him right now and are poised to have I think a really huge year and I think who -- have great reason to be excited for a run this year. All right very good -- check on the -- see where we are with that so everybody on that ski area -- don't -- the control room it is better. Out there. They realized the coming up phone apps that can make yourself these look a little thinner and would you ride the back double whale shark.

Rob Gronkowski is the highest paid tight -- in the NFL right now at nine million dollars a season OK you know what I agree Jimmy should be the highest paid tied it in the NFL.
