New Orleans Saints rookie receiver Chris Olave pulled down an incredible ball during training camp.

The former Ohio State superstar receiver elevated over C.J. Gardner-Johnson to make a catch that needs to be seen to be believed.

Watch him haul in the outstanding catch below.

Some people choose to treat training camp like it’s not a big deal, but for huge football fans, training camp is what gets the engine going.

It’s not the real thing, but it definitely greases the tracks to make sure we’re ready to roll for week one. Highlights play a huge part of that.

For Big Ten football fans, that’s nothing new. He had 35 touchdown grabs and went for 2,702 receiving yards while playing for the Buckeyes.

It’s not hard to understand why Saints fans are expecting him to immediately step in and play a huge role in the offense.
