Stephone Anthony could use a change of scenery

The former first-round pick suffered a stunning drop-off in 2016, after a great rookie season. If Anthony doesn't make big strides this summer, his future in New Orleans will be in doubt.

The Saints officially announced the hirings of receivers coach Curtis Johnson and defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen. Johnson, who previously served as the Saints' WR coach from 2006-2011 before becoming a head coach at Tulane and spending one year with the Chicago Bears, has also been given the title of "senior offensive assistant." Nielsen spent the past 14 years in college, most recently as the defensive line/recruiting coordinator/run game coordinator at North Carolina State from 2013-2016. The Saints have now filled all of their major assistant coach vacancies after previously hiring linebackers coach Mike Nolan and special teams coordinator Bradford Banta.

The Saints will return home for training camp in 2017 at their team practice facility in Metairie after spending the past three years at The Greenbrier resort in West Virginia, the team announced. New Orleans has alternated between home and away camps during the Sean Payton era. They trained at home primarily from 2009-2013 after training in Jackson, Miss., from 2006-2008. Practices will be open to the public. The full camp schedule will be released later this spring.
