(WVUE) -

In 2014, Curtis Lofton led the Saints in tackles and after he moved on to Oakland, Stephone Anthony filled his shoes and also managed to lead the team in take downs.

After Anthony suffered a significant sophomore slump in 2016, he appears to be ready for a return to prominence in 2017 and Lofton, now serving as FOX 8 Saints Analyst foresees him eventually taking the reigns back from Manti Te'o "Right now, the starter is Te'o but with the hopes of Anthony coming along and beating him out later on. Te'o knows where to be and he's a very confident signal-caller so he has the edge right now because of experience."

Lofton will be back on FOX 8 next Sunday as the Los Angeles Chargers host the Saints.

Week 2- at LA Chargers   Aug. 20, 6:30 PM – FOX 8

Week 3 - vs Houston         Aug. 26, 6:30 PM – FOX 8

Week 4 - vs Baltimore       Aug. 31, 6:30 PM – FOX 8

    For tight end Ben Watson it's season #15. But he admitted he didn't know if he was going to get there. " I would say that at the end of last year I was very unsure if I was going to continue playing," Watson said." I knew that if I did play there only a very small number of places that I'd consider going.  One of those teams were the saints..because it was here where Watson had the best statistical season of his career in 2015...

    First-round draft pick Marcus Davenport missed almost three weeks of action during Saints training camp. This weekend, Davenport was back at practice, and all signs point to the rookie playing against the Chargers this Saturday. "The assignment, he'll know. He's been practicing in the meetings. It's just making sure he's 100 percent. But I anticipate that happening this week. I anticipate him being able to work this week and get some playing time," said Sean Payton. The Un...

    Lowell Narcisse came out of St. James as a four-star quarterback, with a ton of potential. At LSU, he redshirted in 2017, and was ready to step up this season and finally get on the field. The Tigers put a package in for Narcisse that focused more on his running skills, but wouldn't exhibit his throwing prowess. So Narcisse left LSU, and now calls Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College his home "When you set a standard and you believe in yourself, you don't settle for things t...more>>
