Toon has 21 career receptions, including 17 last season. Now, he's got a clear path to be the team's No. 3 wideout, but he isn't banking on anything.
"No, I don't have any more security. It's one of those things, whether you're an undrafted free agent or the first pick in the draft, you can never get complacent in this field," he said. "There's always someone coming in, looking to compete for your job. Complacency will cut your career short. You can never be complacent in this industry."
The path is clear for
The offseason losses of Kenny Stills, Jimmy Graham and Robert Meacham should result in more reps for Toon, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract. He has been buried on the depth chart, though he did catch a career-high 17 passes last year.
He believes that now is the time for him to step up and break out.
"Pressure is not something that I've every worried about or thought about," he told the New Orleans Advocate. "I just try to be consistent. Anything outside of that is out of my control, so do what you've got to do to put yourself in the best position for things to work out."
Toon has a shot at the third receiver role behind Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston.
Colston led the way with a team-high six catches on 10 targets for 80 yards. Stills finished as the team's second leading receiving, posting six catches for 68 yards on eight targets. Toon cracked the 40-yard mark again with three catches for 44 yards in a 30-14 defeat.
New Orleans will end their 2014 campaign against Tampa Bay in Week 17.
They'll all face Atlanta on Sunday.
