SAINTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Saints Nation’s final 53 man roster prediction

The Saints will need to waive (or place on IR) a total 22 players by Saturday, or more if they pick up players that were cut from other teams. My cuts and 53 man roster are below. I’ll throw one caveat, though. I think the Saints will sign an offensive tackle if someone they like becomes available. Bryce Harris would be the obvious exchange in that scenario. But for now I’ll...

Saints drop preseason finale 22-13 to Ravens

The Saints played very few key players, but that didn’t stop Robert Meachem, Champ Bailey and Parys Haralson from all getting banged up. As far as I could tell it doesn’t seem like it will jeopardize their ability to play in Atlanta, as Haralson and Meachem both returned, and Bailey seemed to dislocate a finger. Comically the Saints had one penalty in this game, it was by far...

Can any of these 10 guys to watch be future stars for the New Orleans Saints?

Tonight, every NFL team plays their final preseason game. The next time we’ll see them on the field, it will be the opening weekend of the season. That means that this weekend, there won’t be any professional football to watch.

New Orleans Saints: The running game

Since the inception of the Drew Brees-Sean Payton era, the identity of the New Orleans Saints has been a potent, high flying aerial attack. Every passing record, at one point in time, has been broken or threatened by Brees and Payton. However, despite the success in the passing game, team success has always been determined by the ground game. In the Saints’ two most successful...

Mailbag: how will Kenny Stills injury impact the New Orleans Saints offense?

Nick, I hate seeing a guy as young and talented as Kenny Stills continue to deal with this quad injury. But will his loss really have an impact on an already deep receiving corps? – Confident Collin, Crowley Collin you may be on to something here. As Saints fans I think we’ve all been impressed with Stills dynamic play and his ability to take the top off of a defense, but I’m...

Brandin Cooks Bound for Superstardom with Saints

From 2006 until 2013, the Saints’ wide receiver corps underwent very little change. Led annually by Marques Colston, the Saints also featured—in no determinable pecking order—Lance Moore, Devery Henderson, and Robert Meachem. Only a quarterback of Drew Brees’ caliber could enjoy the immense success he has with such a lackluster rabble of wideouts. Of course, […] The post...

The NFC South has been one of the most competitive division over the past decade. No team has won it in back to back years. This division is diverse.
