The New Orleans Saints recent history with players from "The Ohio State University" has been a good one. After all, the 2009 Super Bowl Championship team sported two Buckeyes on that defense's starting unit, Will Smith and Malcolm Jenkins. Tonight on "Buckeye Friday" the Saints picked two more Ohio State players in the 2nd round. Wide receiver Michael Thomas gives Drew Brees big red zone target and safety Vonn Bell gives the Saints a ballhawk in the secondary. Here's Bell's story...

At the risk of getting booed right out of the Who Dat Nation, I'm going to state something that I've been thinking for months.

"Blasphemy", you say, "the Saints gave up more touchdown passes in NFL HISTORY!" And yes, you'd be correct in saying that. But I'm saying that last year's injured rookie, P.J.

Geno Smith or Michael Vick? It may not really matter. The Jets' offense has been teetering between bad and pathetic for a number of years.

The New York Jets are heading into the 2014 season with a big question mark in the secondary: who will play opposite of Dee Milliner? Take a look at who has the best chance of filling the void and who has no chance at making the giant leap into a starting role.

Dee Milliner had his ups and downs as a rookie, but the arrow was certainly pointing up at the conclusion of last season. Unlike last year, the former Alabama standout will be healthy for OTAs and minicamp, which is good news for the Jets.
