TE Coby Fleener Looking Forward to Year Two in the Saints System

After making reference to missed assignments during his first season with the Saints, tight end Coby Fleener was asked how deep the problem went since it’s impossible for outsiders to gauge, Nick Underhill of the Advocate reports.

“That’s a good thing,” he cracked.

Fleener struggled some of that during training camp and early in the season, but he doesn’t think missed assignments were anything that plagued his season. And he’s confident the issue, as well as other aspects of his game, will improve after having already spent a full season in New Orleans.

Signed to a five-year, $36 million contract last offseason, Fleener was supposed to serve as another dynamic playmaker in an offense full of them. At times he was. Mostly, he was just solid, catching 50 passes for 631 yards with three touchdowns.

“I think anytime you’re trying to learn a new offense, trying to learn a language, trying to learn something of that nature, going through it under pressure, going through it for a year really helps,” he said.
