Saints | Open Competition at MLB

Thu, 20 May 2004 14:30:56 -0700

Chris Pika, of NewOrleansSaints.com, reports New Orleans Saints head coach Jim Haslett said the team will have an intense competition at middle linebacker consisting of LB Orlando Ruff, LB Cie Grant and rookie LB Courtney Watson. "It's wide open," Haslett said about the position. "Orlando is the incumbent and he did a good job for us last year. We like Cie, who we drafted in the third round last year and Courtney, who we drafted in the second round this year. If one of those young guys can become our middle linebacker, we will probably slide the other one over to become the backup Will (weakside linebacker), depending on how Derrick Rodgers does."
