NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The Saints have invested many resources into the cornerback position this off season, bringing in three free agents and drafting two more at the position.  

Stanley Jean-Baptiste was drafted in the second round of the 2014 draft, yet barely saw the field last season.  After playing in just four games and seeing a slew of new faces in the secondary, he knows the pressure is ratcheted up. "I heard it, I can't do nothing about it," Jean-Baptiste said. "I can't just throw myself on field, I've got to wait until the time comes and show them then."

The few times he saw the field as a rookie, he was exposed, including on a game-winning touchdown at Detroit. "My position, you've got to forget real quick, don't stress anything," he said. "I know what I can do, I'm confident."

    LSU went back to work this week in preparation for the Citrus Bowl against Notre Dame. A win would be nice, but this is also a chance to get some freshman playing time to get ready for 2018. Well it'll come in practice only. "Those guys will get more reps. So I'll give them a couple of more reps at the end of a team period. It's sending the wrong message to our football team. It's all focus on winning the game. Exactly what we did last year," said LSU Head Coach Ed Org...more>>
