Saints Kicker?

Steve: Who will be the Saints kicker in 2014?


Talking about an NFL's team's kicking game never seems important, until you need the guy to drill a game-winning 49-yarder with seconds on the clock. When you look at the Saints roster this year, kicker is one of the few question marks. Read More
NFC South

As the Who Dat Nation no doubt knows, Saints training camp starts this week! As the Black and Gold head out to West Virginia, let’s take a quick look at how the other teams in the NFC South are shaping up. Read More
Saints Moves

Kristian: Two Saints start camp on PUP list


According to the league transaction report, the Saints have placed nose tackle John Jenkins and Linebacker Cheta Ozougwu on the PUP list (Physically Unable to Perform).  A player can be removed from that list at any point in training camp prior to week 1. Read More
Saints CB?

Kristian: Cornerback spot is one to watch at Saints camp


Several other teams are wondering who their starting QB might be; that's not the case in New Orleans as we know, but nonetheless here are some key areas to watch. Let's look at cornerback first. Read More
Saints Core

Steve: Graham is a part of Saints essential core; who else?


Graham just may be the 2nd most important player on this roster. But who else makes up the Saints core?  You know; the guys this ballclub cannot do without? Read More
Hail Loomis!

Kristian: Mickey Loomis for MVP!


Yeah, yeah, general managers are never in the running for Most Valuable Player in the NFL, and Saints GM Mickey Loomis isn't a player in the traditional sense.  He doesn't block, he doesn't tackle, he doesn't catch or throw touchdowns. Read More
Now What?

Kristian: With Graham wrapped up, what's next for Saints salary cap?


Prior to the Jimmy Graham contract, New Orleans had about $1.7 million in cap room. After the Graham contract, the Saints saved roughly $3 million in cap space with Graham's cap hit for this season sitting at roughly $4 million dollars. Read More
Top Money

Jordan: How does Graham's deal compare to the rest of the NFL?


Graham's deal is for 4 years, $40 million, with $21 million guaranteed.  So Graham will average $10 million a year. That’s the biggest contract for a tight end in the history of the NFL. Read More
Deal Terms

Kristian: Hebert says Graham very deserving of pay day


“Really, after the Saints had the leverage, I don’t know what else he was going to do,” said the Cajun Cannon Bobby Hebert after Jimmy Graham announced the deal via Twitter. Read More
Graham Appeals!

Kristian: Graham appeals Burbank ruling with 24 hours to go


The NFL Network has reported that Saints tight end Jimmy Graham will appeal the ruling from arbitrator Stephen Burbank, with less than 24 hours to go before the deadline to reach a long-term deal with the Saints. Read More
50/50 Chance?

Kristian: Flip a coin on Graham deal, according to Mortensen


The second biggest decision of the summer might be on the way - or it might not.  Now that we know where Lebron James is going, what about Jimmy Graham and the Saints working out a deal before the July 15th deadline?  Read More
Graham Appeal?

Kristian: Jimmy Graham not likely to appeal TE ruling


Any appeal would be to a three person panel in the NFL; however, that three person panel has to "accept" the case if Graham and his camp can prove erroneous facts in the first hearing, or a procedural error. Read More
Payton's Stats

Deke: Fast starts have led to big things in Sean Payton era


They say in life that numbers don’t lie. That statement could not be more evident when it comes to the New Orleans Saints success under Coach Sean Payton. And when you look a little deeper inside the numbers things become even more clear. Read More
Graham Deal

Kristian: Saints hold the leverage over Graham


After last week's ruling by system arbitrator Stephen Burbank, the Saints not only claimed a small victory, but also a ton of leverage where negotiations with Jimmy Graham are concerned. Read More
Saints Drama

Steve: Graham-sanity has taken over!


Remember the relentless coverage of Drew Brees' contract squabble with the Saints back in 2012?  Well, buckle up folks, because the Jimmy Graham show is in town this year, and it has a lot more question marks and room for speculation than Brees' deal did. Read More
New Deal?

Deke: Graham deal should get done sooner than later


Now that the ruling is in, a long term deal to keep TE Jimmy Graham in a Saints uniform should get done, and soon. I have no reason to believe otherwise. Graham will probably become the highest paid tight end in the NFL. Read More
How They Knew

Complete text of Burbank ruling on Jimmy Graham


System Arbitator Stephen Burbank concluded that Jimmy Graham is, in fact, a tight end and not a wide receiver. How did he come to that conclusion? Click here to read the full ruling
Kristian's Take

Kristian: Graham needs to go back to negotiating table


The most logical option for Graham would be to go back to the negotiating table with the Saints and hammer out a long term contract if he receives a fair offer.  I fully expect that to happen. Read More
Long Term?

Steve: Graham's a TE, but what happens next?


Graham may decide to appeal this ruling, but I’m guessing it won’t make a difference.  The NFL does not want the players following suit in the fututre. Read More

Saints Camp

Deke: Defense shines at Saints mini camp, Jenkins out

Saints Defense

Deke: Saints defense has never looked better


Going from the #32 defense in the NFL to #4 is one hell of a jump. In less than a year's time, the New Orleans Saints went from being on the bad end of history to making great history.  The 28-position jump in total defense from season to season was one of the most significant improvements in league history. Read More
Saints Center?

Steve: Goodwin to be a Saint this week?


It has been widely talked about and speculated that the Saints would bring in veteran center Jonathan Goodwin, and it seems as if the time is now.  At least according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapport. Read More

Champ Bailey

Kristian: Does Champ make sense for the Saints?


The Saints continue to kick the tires on free agents, most notably defensive back Champ Bailey. NFL Analyst Mike Detillier told me “He’ll go down as one of the greatest cornerbacks of all time.  The problem is, you're getting the 36 year old Champ.  What do you want him for?” Read More
