NFL Rumors: New Orleans Saints comfortable with Kenny Stills as starting wide receiver


The New Orleans Saints offense will look a little different come 2014, but they’re not expecting to miss a beat – at least not in regards to their wide receiver position as they’re reportedly ‘comfortable’ with Kenny Stills taking over as a starting wideout.

They’re certainly not in a panic over the top jobs right now. They’re very comfortable with Marques Colston and Kenny Stills as their two starters. They like the potential of Nick Toon and Joe Morgan.

In addition to losing Lance Moore via free agency, the Saints also moved on from Darren Sproles so there certainly shouldn’t be any shortage of passes to go around.

Stills looked pretty impressive during the 2013 season so it’s understandable why the Saints are as comfortable as they are with him, though a little insurance is always nice and ESPN’s Mike Triplett believes the Saints will target a wide receiver in the upcoming 2014 NFL Draft.

It’s also possible the Saints could re-sign Robert Meachem if they’re unhappy with how things look after that fact.

    I dont know about comfortable more like thank God we had a player this good on the bench.To me at least signing Meacham would go a long way towards solidifying the group as he was good for a home run on just about any occasion in his time in NOLA.Nick toon had a lot of drops and I really haven’t seen much of Morgan. What I do know is Lance Moore moved the chains better than anyone in the past few years and his presence and production will be missed.
