Free-agent acquisition Sam Bradford and 10th overall draft choice

Josh Rosen combined to provide a promising outlook for the Arizona Cardinals‘ quarterback situation.After Bradford completed all six of his passes for 61 yards Sam Mills Jersey , Rosen went 10 of 16 for 107 yards, including a 13-yard touchdown to rookie Christian Kirk in a 20-15 preseason victory over New Orleans on Friday night.Rosen gave himself mixed reviews, saying he wanted some throws back, made some “procedural” mistakes and at times held the ball too long. But he sounded pleased with his scoring strike, in which he bought time with his movement in the pocket and rifled a throw to Kirk.“I had to put it kind of high and away where it’s kind of a him-or-no one ball and he managed to snag it,” Rosen said. “Christian made some great plays.”Kirk, the Cardinals’ second-round draft choice, finished with four receptions for 49 yards.“It seems like he has an extra gear on game days,” Bradford said of Kirk. “He’s got some burst. He’s got some speed and it’s really nice to see that.”Bradford said Rosen “looked pretty good to me. … He is just extremely talented.”David Johnson bowled his way into the end zone from 9 yards for the Cardinals’ opening score, capping a 61-yard drive led by Bradford.Arizona’s Chad Williams caught three passes for 44 yards.Bradford said the offense looked “pretty sharp” while he was in the game.“There were a lot of good things that were done tonight and things that we can really build on,” Bradford said.Arizona’s defense racked up four turnovers for a second straight game to go with four sacks.Quarterback Drew Brees sat out, as he did in the Saints‘ preseason opener last week.Saints coach Sean Payton said he’d play starters more in New Orleans’ third exhibition, but was more concerned with evaluating players vying for roster spots this week.“At some point, we’ve got to see where we’re at as a team,” Payton said. “There’s that fine line of trying to get the work in … trying to get the evaluation and trying to come up with what we think is the best 53 (players). That’s what weighs on our minds.”The two reserves competing to back up Brees 鈥?Taysom Hill and Tom Savage 鈥?were inconsistent and had issues with ball security, combining for four fumbles, two of which resulted in turnovers by Hill.Hill, a second-year pro who got the start, also was intercepted twice and finished 11 of 15 for 68 yards to go with 43 yards rushing, all of it coming on one long scramble.Savage, who played most of the second half, was 6 of 7 for 53 yards, but was sacked three times.Former Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett played the final six minutes for New Orleans, completing 3 of 5 passes for 45 yards and scrambling for a 12-yard TD.Saints rookie receiver Tre’Quan Smith, a third-rounder, caught three passes for 60 yards.HUMBLED HILLHill led several possessions across midfield, only to be done in by turnovers and another fumble that he recovered himself for a 13-yard loss, forcing New Orleans to settle for Wil Lutz‘s 52-yard field goal.The Saints drove to the Arizona 30 on the opening drive before Hill’s tipped pass was intercepted by linebacker Haason Reddick. Hill lost his first fumble when the ball slipped out of his hands on a first down play from the Cardinals 35.Hill overthrew Ted Ginn on a deep pass toward the right sideline, where cornerback Bene Benwikere made a leaping interception, narrowly touching his toes inbounds.Late in the first half, Hill completed five straight passes to move New Orleans to the Arizona 13 Marcus Williams Color Rush Jersey , but fumbled on Olsen Pierre‘s sack. Arizona defensive end Vontarrius Dora recovered and returned it 16 yards to the Arizona 43.“I’ve got to be better. It was frustrating tonight,” Hill said. “There were some good things, but it’s hard to attack when you have four turnovers.”TECH TALKTwo young pros out of Louisiana Tech who grew up in the Gulf South had productive nights in the Superdome, where they played as teammates in a 2015 New Orleans Bowl win.Dora, who began his NFL career as an undrafted free agent in 2016, recovered two fumbles and assisted on a tackle.Saints rookie running back and return man Boston Scott, a sixth-round draft choice, returned three kickoffs for 87 yards, had a 16-yard run among six carries for 28 yards, caught a short pass and returned a punt 13 yards.INJURIESCardinals: Robert Nkemdiche left with a foot injury in the first half and did not return.Saints: Safety Rickey Jefferson had an apparent leg injury covering the kickoff at the start of the second half. On the ensuring series, cornerback Arthur Maulet limped off the field. Devaroe Lawrence was shaken up later in the third quarter and walked off on his own.ANTHEM UPDATEThere were no apparent protests during the national anthem.UP NEXTThe Saints play the Chargers in Los Angeles on Aug. 25.The Cardinals visit Dallas on Aug. 26. METAIRIE, La. (AP) — At the very least, Eli Apple didn’t have to worry about whether he’d be welcomed warmly in the corner of Saints headquarters where the defensive backs’ lockers are clustered.Apple’s former Ohio State teammates, cornerback Marshon Lattimore and safety Vonn Bell, took care of that.“We’re glad to have him,” Bell said, smiling widely.Added Lattimore, “I know what he’s capable of. I know the skillset. He’s a great player, a big player, strong. He’s got good feet. He’s going to get it right.”For the Saints’ sake, he’d better.New Orleans enters its Week 8 test at Minnesota ranked 28th in the NFL against the pass, allowing nearly 276 yards per game through the air. Making matters worse has been the timing of some the Saints’ coverage busts, most recently at the end of Sunday’s victory at Baltimore , when Ravens receiver John Brown caught what should have been a tying touchdown pass in the final half-minute with no defender near him. Baltimore’s extra point kick sailed wide, however, and New Orleans (5-1) escaped with another victory.In Week 2 against Cleveland , the Saints gave up a game-tying, 47-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Calloway with 1:16 to go and would have fallen behind if kicker Zane Gonzalez hadn’t missed an extra point. New Orleans then needed a field goal with 21 seconds left to clinch that victory.Lattimore said New Orleans has been “terrible” in 2-minute defense.So when the Saints had an opportunity on Tuesday to acquire Apple , who was a 2016 New York Giants first-round draft choice, in exchange for a 2019 fourth-round draft pick and 2020 seventh-rounder, they seized it.“We felt like it was in our best interest https://www.thesaintsfanshop.com/Manti-Te_O-Jersey ,” Saints coach Sean Payton said. “We felt like it was going to help us this year.”Apple, 23, practiced with New Orleans for the first time on Wednesday. And while his status for this Sunday’s game remains unclear, he said he was “very excited” to be traded to New Orleans from the languishing Giants, a team with which he has struggled at times and come under public criticism from teammates and staff.“It’s a great organization here, a lot of great players, too,” Apple said after his first Saints practice. “I just can’t wait to come in and contribute.”Apple’s future in New York seemed tenuous since the 2017 season, when Giants safety Landon Collins called Apple a “cancer,” and when Apple also was suspended for confrontational behavior toward coaches during practice.This season, however, Apple seemed to be following through on his pledge that his attitude would be “all business.” In five games with the Giants this fall, he’d made or assisted on 22 tackles, defended five passes, forced a fumble and recovered a fumble.Asked in New Orleans if he needed a change of scenery, Apple responded, “I wouldn’t necessarily say I needed it, but it’s great to have one right now.”“A lot of juice around here,” Apple added. “A lot of excitement.”Payton, who normally emphasizes the importance of character in the players he acquires, said he was comfortable Apple could help after speaking with the defensive back’s former teammates who now play for the Saints.“It’s not uncommon that we would visit with certain players on a roster about guys they might’ve played with in college or maybe with prior to (on) another NFL team,” Payton said. “We felt good on the information. We like the skillset and we’re excited.”In addition to Lattimore and Bell, Apple was Ohio State teammates with receiver Michael Thomas and often competed against him in practice.“It was a heavy-weight fight every day,” Bell recalled, adding that both players practiced so intensely they had to be physically separated a few times. “It was competing at its best.”Notes: Left guard Andrus Peat, who sat out Sunday’s game in Baltimore with a head injury that had occurred in practice the previous week, returned to practice on Wednesday and said he expects to play this week. … Center Max Unger (hand) and reserve guard Josh LeRibeus (ankle) sat out practice. … Safety Marcus Williams practiced, but was listed on the Saints’ injury report with a groin injury.
