Rams promoted WR Nick Toon from the practice squad.

The Rams placed CB Eric Patterson (ankle) on I.R. Toon will be making his first appearance of the year. He won’t be higher than the No. 5 receiver.
Jan 1 - 6:14 PM

Rams signed WR Nick Toon to the practice squad.

The Rams are getting close to zero production from their receiver corps beyond Kenny Britt, but Toon wouldn't change anything if he got promoted to the 53-man roster. He'd be a deep reserve who needed to carve out a special teams role to keep his roster spot.

Free agent WR Nick Toon worked out for the Titans on Tuesday.

Toon was a surprising final cut by the Saints, but other teams really must not like what they've seen from him on film, as he's been a free agent for two weeks now. He previously worked out for the Cowboys. The Titans only have four receivers on their 53-man roster. Toon also has practice-squad eligibility.

FOX Sports' Mike Garofolo reports free agent WRs Nick Toon and Clyde Gates are "in play" to be signed by Dallas.

Toon, Gates, Hakeem Nicks and Austin Pettis all worked out for the team on Tuesday. Toon has a fourth-round pedigree, but was cut by the receiver-needy Saints just one week ago. Whoever ends up in Big D would be miles from fantasy relevance.

Saints released WR Nick Toon with an injury settlement.

It's hard to believe the Saints couldn't find a place for Toon in their razor-thin receiver corps, but he must have been just that bad this summer. Going on 27, the 2012 fourth rounder hits the open market with a history long on injures and low on production.
Tue, Sep 8, 2015 03:35:00 PM

Saints waived/injured WR Nick Toon.

Waived/injured will send Toon through waivers before landing him on season-ending injured reserve. He could then be outright waived when he returns to health. Toon caught just two preseason passes for 11 yards before going down in the second exhibition game. He never really put any heat on Brandon Coleman for No. 3 duties, even though Coleman has had a middling summer.

Saints WR Nick Toon suffered a high ankle sprain in Saturday night's preseason game and will be shelved 2-3 weeks.

The injury effectively ends New Orleans' No. 3 wideout battle, where Brandon Coleman will open the season in three-receiver sets alongside Marques Colston and Brandin Cooks. Toon had been something of a disappointment in camp following a fast finish to the 2014 season. Toon finished the 2015 preseason with two catches for 11 yards. His roster spot should still be secure.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports "there’s still a question" as to how much the Saints like Nick Toon.

Toon has been passed by Brandon Coleman on the depth chart. He's not a lock for a roster spot, and needs to hold off Joe Morgan, Seantavius Jones, and Josh Morgan for the No. 4 receiver job. Toon started and played 22 snaps in the Saints first preseason game, managing one catch for nine yards.

The Advocate's Nick Underhill believes Nick Toon has fallen to sixth on the Saints' wide receiver depth chart.

Toon has by all accounts been passed by Brandon Coleman, but Underhill believes he may have fallen behind Joe Morgan and Josh Morgan as well. If that is the case, Toon's roster chances are bleak. He is not worth a late-round flier.

Coach Sean Payton said he thinks Nick Toon's snaps will go "way up" this season.

Toon appeared in just eight games last season, averaging 30.1 snaps per day in those. Now Kenny Stills, Jimmy Graham and Robert Meachem are all gone and Toon is penciled in as the primary "Z," a role that will get him on the field in all three-wide sets alongside focal point Brandin Cooks and slot man Marques Colston. Toon has the tools to excel with this opportunity, making Kenny Stills' 32-641-5 line from 2013 a real possibility.
Tue, Jul 7, 2015 12:59:00 PM

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett considers fourth-year WR Nick Toon the "strong frontrunner" to serve as New Orleans' No. 3 receiver this year.

Seantavius Jones and Brandon Coleman have drawn more OTA headlines, but Toon is in the driver's seat to work into three-receiver packages behind Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston. 26-year-old Toon had a quiet first three seasons in the league, but came on down the stretch in 2014 and ran 4.43-4.54 at 6-foot-2, 215 coming out of Wisconsin. He's a deep sleeper to monitor.

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett says "in a best-case scenario" Nick Toon could approach Kenny Stills' 2013 numbers.

Stills posted 32 catches for 641 yards and five touchdowns while playing in all 16 games that year. It's a reminder that although Toon is favored to win the No. 3 wideout job, it's a low-volume role in the Saints' scheme. That was the case even before they shifted to the ball-control mentality Sean Payton is installing this offseason.

The Saints did not select any wide receivers in the 2015 NFL draft.

It's a bit of a surprise given only Marques Colston and Brandin Cooks are established at the wideout spot for Drew Brees. It's a vote of confidence for Nick Toon, Joe Morgan, Seantavius Jones and Brandon Coleman. If one can clearly rise to the top during the offseason program and training camp, he'll get on the deep-league radar.
Sun, May 3, 2015 10:56:00 AM

Nick Toon caught 1-of-2 targets for 24 yards in the Saints' Week 17 win over the Bucs.

The No. 122 pick of the 2012 draft, Toon caught 17 passes for 215 yards this season after injuries helped limit him to four total grabs through his first two years in the league. Signed for an affordable $660,000, Toon should be back to close out his rookie contract in 2015, but there's no guarantee he'll be in for any sort of a role. Toon's outlook would brighten if the Saints decided to move on from Marques Colston's $6.9 million salary.
