New Orleans, La. - Even pre-season games in the NFL deserve *game ball* winners. After all, most of the players out there are working for gainful employment in the league. Every snap in every practice and every game could be a career maker... Or, *breaker*.
For example, the third wide receiver with the Saints behind Marques Colston and Lance Moore is loaded. But, through one pre-season game, the guy who may have stated his case the loudest is Preston Parker. 4 passes for 43 yards Friday night, scoring the Saints only two touchdowns.
For Parker, the North Alabama product, ever day represents an opportunity.
Parker is keeping it simple and humble. "Me, I just love the experience. To come out here with some good athletes from all over the world, I just love the opportunity and the experience. I love being here. It's a good job."
With guys like Kenny Stills, Nick Toon, Andy Tanner and others vying for the spot vacated by the season ending knee injury suffered by Joseph Morgan.
The Saints will practice Monday morning, and each morning through Thursday. All practices in Metairie are open to the public. The Raiders are in town Friday evening, and then training camp officially breaks.
