Study in contrasts

Patrick Robinson is youth.

His size, his speed. His competitive hunger, eager to amend past performances and unexpected injuries, make him a top option to start the Saints regular season Sept. 7 at Atlanta.

Champ Bailey is accomplished.

Name a defensive achievement short of a Super Bowl victory and Defensive Player of the Year honors, and Bailey has done it. He has as many Pro Bowl appearances in his NFL career as last season’s Saints defense had interceptions (12).

Now, pick one cornerback to start opposite Keenan Lewis in 2014. Or watch Saturday night’s preseason game at Indianapolis for an answer.

“The plan is to play them,” said Saints coach Sean Payton of the team’s third preseason game. “We kind of went through their roles yesterday, what there goals are ... but both of those guys will play.”

Bailey and Robinson have missed practice time this summer at training camp because of injuries, although both players were back on the field at Saints headquarters Thursday.
