  Rams | Nick Toon will join St. Louis    Mon Sep 28, 01:55 PM

Free-agent WR Nick Toon (Saints) will sign with the St. Louis Rams, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This could be bad news for Brian Quick. He's recovering from a shoulder injury that was once thought to be career threatening. Quick has been a healthy scratch for every game this year, and there's been no spotting him on the injury report. It's one of the most mysterious situations right now. If Toon signs, then perhaps it's a sign that Quick is done.

  Saints | Several roster moves made    Tue Sep 1, 07:33 PM

New Orleans Saints WRs Nick Toon, Lance Lewis and R.J. Harris were released Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Toon had a shot to make some noise this preseason, but fell flat. He's struggled for several years now so we'll see if anyone takes a shot.

New Orleans Saints WR Nick Toon (ankle) has a high ankle sprain and could miss as much as two to three weeks, according to sources.

  Saints | Nick Toon will play Z receiver    Wed Jul 8, 03:16 PM

  Saints | Nick Toon to see a lot more snaps    Tue Jul 7, 03:29 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Nick Toon's snap count will go way up this season, according to head coach Sean Payton. Payton said Toon has been working hard, he understands the system and he has shown progress.

Footballguys view: Toon is competing with Seantavius Jones, Brandon Coleman, Joseph Morgan, and Josh Morgan for a #3 wide receiver job that won't be relevant for fantasy leagues without an injury to one of the top two WRs on the Saints, Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston. The third year player from Wisconsin was unimpressive in extended time last year, so progress would be needed before we would even monitor Toon closely in dynasty leagues.

  Saints | Nick Toon favorite for No. 3 WR    Wed Jun 3, 06:32 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Nick Toon seems to be the frontrunner to be the Saints' No. 3 wide receiver, according to ESPN.com's Mike Triplett. Triplett said Joe Morgan and Josh Morgan are also in the mix for the position.

Footballguys view: We've been waiting and waiting for guys like Toon--and both Morgans--to actually start playing up to their potential. This is a positive sign for Toon, but let's just say we're a little hesitant about getting excited given his disappointing career to this point.

  Saints | Nick Toon impressing    Fri Jul 25, 10:24 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Nick Toon looks poised for big things this season, according to beat writer Jim Corbett. He shields well and looks like a tight end at 6-foot-4.

Footballguys view: Toon has quietly been gathering buzz this offseason. He's absolutely worth a later round flier, but his stock could rise in the coming weeks. Right now he looks like a lock for the No. 4 spot and a good camp could get him more.

  Saints | Plenty of depth if Marques Colston can't go    Sat Nov 2, 12:02 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) is uncertain to play in the Week 9 game against the New York Jets. If he cannot go, the team still has good depth at the receiver position with WR Lance Moore healthy, and WR Kenny Stills emerging as a solid threat. WRs Robert Meachem and Nick Toon also provide good depth.

Footballguys view: Stills is an emerging talent with the speed to get on top of the defense in a hurry. Fantasy owners can count on him as a flex play with upside regardless of Colston's playing status. The one player we'd like to see more of is Nick Toon. He's got the size and wingspan to be at least a red zone threat.

  Saints | Jimmy Graham misses practice    Thu Oct 24, 06:21 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (foot) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 24, and the likelihood of him playing in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills decreased. TE Benjamin Watson may start in Graham's place if he cannot play. Watson had three catches for 61 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 6 when Graham was blanketed in coverage.

Footballguys view: There's still one more day before you hit DEFCON 1 but this is a concern. As mentioned, Watson will step in and could be a decent bye week/injury replacement if you're in a tight spot.

Footballguys view: Undrafted free agent Khiry Robinson is active, but Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles should also get some of the touches vacated by Ingram.

  Saints | Patrick Crayton signs    Mon Aug 12, 05:09 PM

The New Orleans Saints signed free-agent WR Patrick Crayton (Cowboys) to an undisclosed deal Monday, Aug. 12.

Footballguys view: Crayton was a street free agent last year and may not have much left in the tank. We'd be surprised if he even makes the final roster.

  Saints | Younger WRs could get more chances    Tue Aug 6, 12:27 AM

New Orleans WRs Saalim Hakim, Preston Parker, Kenny Stills, Andy Tanner and Nick Toon could each see bigger roles following the injury to WR Joe Morgan (knee), who is likely to miss at least a few weeks. However, the team values experience in the top three receiver roles, and it is believed veteran WR Steve Breaston will get a long look as the No. 3 first before any of the younger players.

Footballguys view: Toon is the player to watch here. If healthy Toon has good size and the wingspan to make plays in the red zone. Toon is not a quick twitch athlete and needs to be a more refined route runner if he wants to play up to his potential.

  Saints | Joe Morgan battling for No. 3 job    Tue Jul 30, 01:34 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Joe Morgan is battling WRs Nick Toon, Kenny Stills and Courtney Roby for the No. 3 wide receiver spot in training camp behind WRs Marques Colston and Lance Moore.

Footballguys view: Morgan is an interesting name to remember. He's got an intriguing size/speed combination and can track the ball deep. If he plays up to his potential then he could make a nice 'what the heck' flex from week to week.

  Saints | Nick Toon to have bigger role?    Sun Jun 9, 08:08 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Nick Toon (foot) appears more comfortable in the offense despite missing all of his rookie season in 2012 due to a foot injury. He will be among those trying to beat out WR Joe Morgan for the No. 3 wide receiver duties.

Footballguys view: Toon is a large target with a big wingspan and good 'my ball' mentality. He's not the most explosive player and needs to hone his route running in order to get open consistently at the pro level.
