Saints WR Brandon Coleman shows big upside against Packers

All offseason we’ve heard the rave reviews about wide receiver Brandon Coleman. Through three preseason games, Coleman hadn’t lived up to the hype just yet. Fortunately for the New Orleans Saints and their fans, that all changed on Thursday night.

 

Coleman, who’s just in his second year, hauled in four catches on four targets for 82 yards during a 38-10 preseason loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Coleman’s strong showing is something fans have waited on for weeks now, but it’s more than just one game. While Coleman had received praise from coaches and players all over the roster, he’s fully expected to start the 2015 season as the No. 3 receiver.

 

With the likes of WRs Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston in the mix to help ease the pressure off Coleman, many expect him to potentially be the breakout player for this Saints offense in 2015. Only time will tell, but he’ll be a player to keep your eye on when the Saints open up the season against the Arizona Cardinals.
