Saints' Fairley preparing for larger role on defensive line

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Nick Fairley hopes a combination of experience, good health and happiness in his personal life helps him realize his yet-to-be-fulfilled potential as an NFL defensive lineman.

If so, it could provide a considerable boost to a New Orleans Saints defensive front trying to bounce back from a dismal showing in 2015.

Fairley grew up rooting for the Saints in his hometown of Mobile, Alabama, about a two-hour drive east of New Orleans on Interstate 10. He said he gets "chills" thinking about playing for the Saints in the Superdome for the first time on Friday night, when the Pittsburgh Steelers visit New Orleans in both clubs' third preseason game.
