Nick Toon WR NO 1 Month
The Times-Picayune's Katherine Terrell believes WR Nick Toon as the "edge" in the battle for the Saints' fourth receiver job.
Terrell is the second Saints' reporter to single out Toon in the last month. ESPN's Mike Triplett recently said Toon could see "significant" playing time this season. Marques Colston, Kenny Stills, and rookie Brandin Cooks are locked in as the top-three, but Toon appears to be in the drivers seat for the No. 4 wide receiver duties in New Orleans this season.

ESPN Saints' reporter Mike Triplett believes WR Nick Toon has a chance at "significant" playing time this season.
Triplett admits Toon could be cut if he struggles in the preseason, but he sees a "much better chance" Toon cracks the top-four wide receivers in New Orleans and earns a fair amount of playing time. Toon only saw 12 targets in 205 offensive snaps last season and was primarily used as a blocker. He can be safely ignored in fantasy leagues.
Nick Toon WR NO 3 Months
ESPN's Mike Triplett reports the Saints remain high on Nick Toon's potential.
Toon struggled when filling in for Lance Moore last season and was active for just eight games as a rookie. He should open training camp as the No. 4 wideout depending on what the Saints do in the draft. If Toon can put together a strong preseason, Joe Morgan and Robert Meachem will likely be competing for one roster spot.

Nick Toon WR NO 9 Months
Nick Toon had no catches on four targets in Sunday's Week 9 loss to the Jets.
Subbing for an inactive Marques Colston (knee), Toon led all Saints wideouts with 55 snaps and 43 routes run. He also led them with ineffective play. Toon had a brutal drop on a perfectly thrown deep ball early on and then had a pass clang off his hands for an interception later. From there, Drew Brees appeared hesitant to throw the second-year man the ball.

Rookie Kenny Stills is in the driver's seat for No. 3 wideout duties following Joe Morgan's ACL tear, but Toon is making a case for playing time. He's also Marques Colston's top backup. Toon certainly has a roster spot sewn up.
