Sean Payton says Brandon Coleman to play with first-team Saturday

BY foxsports • August 19, 2015

Brandon Coleman has become a force for the New Orleans Saints, at least during the 2015 offseason. Can that strong play continue into the upcoming season? Only time will tell on that, but as Joel A. Erickson of The New Orleans Advocate explained, Coleman will get plenty of work with the first-team during the second preseason game.

It was actually a bit surprising to see Coleman not work with the first-team more during the preseason opener against the Ravens. Even Sean Payton had to answer questions on that specific topic apparently.

“I talked with him afterwards. I think you’ll see him. He is healthy, and there was no specific rhyme or reason,” Payton told Erickson. “Obviously, there are a lot of guys at that position, but he has been playing too well, and we feel like you’ll see him get a lot of work this week with the ones. You’ll see in the game Saturday with the ones.”

Coleman's strong play can't be overlooked, and now it seems that we'll get to see the young receiver against the New England Patriots on Saturday.
