Saints Defenders Tweet Their Respect for Kendall Hinton

The Denver Broncos were in quite a pickle on Sunday when all of the quarterbacks on their roster were ineligible to play due to COVID-19 protocol.  In came Kendall Hinton, a practice string Wide Receiver who played QB at Wake Forest.

 
 

As you can imagine, Hinton wasn’t very successful coming in on such short notice.  He went 1/9 for 13 yards and 2 INTs with a passer rating of 0.0 against one of the best defenses in the league fielded by the now 9-2 New Orleans Saints.

 
 

In a classy move, a couple of Saints defenders tweeted their respect for Hinton:

 
 

 
 

 
 

The Saints have had a bit of a situation at quarterback on their own with future NFL Hall of Famer Drew Brees sidelined with 11 broken ribs and a punctured lung.  New Orleans will play the Atlanta Falcons at noon this Sunday in the second meeting between the teams.  The Saints won the first matchup 24-9.

 
 

Nothing but respect for Broncos' Kendall Hinton 👏
