(WVUE) - On Sunday's Final Play on FOX 8, analyst Deuce McAllister called Brandon Coleman "the surprise of camp" with big plays every day. The fourth year wideout continued the trend Monday with a play that wowed the crowd:
Coleman said after practice that he has added ten pounds to his 6'6" frame, now weighing in at 230 pounds. The changed physicality is symbolic of the mental change he has undergone as well "It's time, it's my fourth training camp here and the time is now," he said after practice Monday. "Each year, I grow a little bit more in the system so it's starting to show."
2016 was a regression for Coleman, statistically, from his first season on the active roster in 2015:
In his first year out of Rutgers in 2014, he spent the year on the practice squad. The 25-year-old is the eleventh-longest tenured member of the Saints.
