WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Undrafted rookie safety Pierre Warren continued to “flash” on the New Orleans Saints‘ practice field Monday morning — this time diving to intercept a pass that was dropped by receiver Brandon Coleman in full-team drills
Earlier in camp, Warren also forced and recovered a fumble against running back Derrick Strozier. The former Jacksonville State standout has also made a handful of nice pass break-ups over the past few days.
And the 6-foot-2, 200-pounder clearly showed coaches something they liked long before this week — because he spent all of organized team activities and minicamp working with the second-string defense (taking advantage of starter Jairus Byrd‘s injury absence).
Obviously it’s way too early to grant Warren a spot on the 53-man roster based on a handful of highlights. He’s probably had his share of low moments, too, that aren’t always visible to the naked eye. (For instance, Warren was involved in a secondary breakdown Sunday that left a receiver wide open, but it was unclear who missed the assignment).
