(WVUE) -

For Darion Monroe's entire three-year career at Tulane, the East St. John product sported #2 and led the Wave defense, both on and off the field. In 2016, Nico Marley changed from #20 to #2 and now in 2017, the legacy is back on the back of a New Orleans native in Brother Martin's Roderic Teamer.

As a junior in 2016, Teamer started all twelve games at safety and was fourth on the team in tackles but coach Willie Fritz sees more on the horizon in 2017. "He's a really good football player," said Fritz. "He had a good year for us, I don't think he finished as well as we wanted him to but he's one of our tougher football players."

Linebacker Zachary Harris is looking to match Marley's production at linebacker but knows that Teamer is the perfect call to take Marley's number. "He's a great guy on and off the field," said Harris. "It is big shoes to fill but I think he's the right guy for it."

    Three turnovers against the lowly Jets can still get you a win in this league. Numerous giveaways against the Eagles, Vikings, Rams, or Panthers might not give you the same result in the standings. The Saints end the season with the Falcons and the Bucs. If they want to end the 2017 regular season campaign on a win streak, things need to be cleaned up. "Two fumbles, and at times you're going to score.

    The Saints racked up three turnovers, flagged for 92 yards in penalties, and still beat the Jets 31-19. Brandon Coleman lost two fumbles in Jets territory, and Drew Brees threw an interception inside his own 20. It was no doubt ugly, but the Saints still got a "W." They lead the NFC South via tiebreaker over the Panthers with a 10-4 record. "I didn't feel like it was one of our better games. Nonetheless, we were able to do what we had to do win a game.

    Brandon Coleman lost two fumbles inside the Jets 30-yard line. Drew Brees threw an interception inside the Saints own 20. The Black and Gold lost offensive guard Larry Warford with a concussion right before half. All off these negatives, and the Saints still beat the Jets, 24-19. The Jets came into the contest with a 5-8 record, and played without their starting quarterback. A weakened New York squad no doubt helped out with the final outcome.  Brees went 25-of-35 passing for 2...
