Like many NFL teams that have a veteran quarterback in their 30s, the New Orleans Saints didn’t play Drew Brees in their first preseason game, instead opting to let Taysom Hill and Tom Savage have at it in a battle for the No. 2 quarterback job. Neither were bad passing, but they also didn’t light it up as they had 72 and 70 yards passing, respectively]]> 5270484 Mon, 13 Aug 2018 10:12:01 EDT Saints Wire

Bortles underwent surgery on his right wrist in late January to repair a partially torn ligament he suffered during the 2016 season. The 26-year-old received multiple cortisone injections to help play through the injury in 2017. Bortles indicated he was in constant pain while throwing the ball over the past two seasons, but since the surgery is pain-free and appears to have a crisper release, as well as delivering the ball with improved accuracy. Training camp remains in its early stages so it's difficult to assess how this might carry over to the regular season, but at this point the 2014 third-overall pick appears to have entered camp in a much better position than previous seasons..
