Report: Saints RB Mark Ingram May Ask To Be Traded

Jason La Canfora of ESPN reports that New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram could seek a trade out of New Orleans in the weeks leading up the NFL trade deadline.

The Saints have Ingram sharing carries with Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles, so this isn’t exactly the type of role...

Report: Saints Recently Made TE Jimmy Graham A Contract Offer

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that New Orleans Saints recently made TE Jimmy Graham a contract offer, but his representatives have yet to respond.

Father of Cardinals' Williams killed in car crash

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Cardinals defensive tackle Dan Williams is not with the team for Sunday's game against the Saints because he was excused following the death of his father, who was killed in a car wreck.

Williams' loss, not Cardinals', the one that really matters

Bruce Arians wouldn't do it. Neither would Carson Palmer or any of the Cardinals players. But given the likely pregame mood of the team, we should give them a free pass for Sunday's 31-7 loss to the Saints in New Orleans. Dan Williams' father died in a car crash on his way from the family's home in Memphis to New Orleans to see his son play. Williams' mom and...

Saints gain confidence from 31-7 win vs. Cardinals

New Orleans Saints players often wore T-shirts with the phrase, ''Be Special,'' printed across the front during the season in which they won the Super Bowl. Between coach Sean Payton's return from his bounty ban, his morale-boosting hiring of defensive coordinator Rob Ryan and quarterback Drew Brees' continued prowess in the passing game, the Saints are starting...

Rashad Johnson Tweets Pictures of Decapitated Finger, Says He’s ‘Blessed’ to Still Be Playing (Photos)

Ouch. Ouch ouch ouch ouch ouch. It was squeamish enough when Rashad Johnson said after Sunday’s game that he lost part of his finger in action, but photo evidence has confirmed the feat.

Arizona Cardinals starting defensive tackle Dan Williams is not with the team for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints because he was excused for the death of his father, who was killed in a car wreck.

Saints Nation: Saints Move to 3-0, Drop Cardinals 31-7

Now that's what I like to see! Not to say that there wasn't some struggles involved in this win, but a 31-7 drubbing is about as much as you could ask for as the Saints move to 3-0, comfortably atop the NFC South. The story of these first three weeks continues to be the shocking and incredibly unexpected performance by the defense. For the third straight week the Saints have...

Saints vs Cardinals: 3 and “0″ That Was Fun!

You know how it is when you’re in a new relationship and you feel a certain way about the other person, but you’re just not sure when it’s safe to say it? Maybe you’re just blinded by the “newness” of it all. Maybe you need more time to see if what you’re getting from the other person is the “real deal”. Maybe revealing how you feel will freak them out. You...

Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades vs. Cardinals

Quite a strange performance by the offense in this one, which turned in negative yards rushing in the first half before finishing with 104 yards on 24 carries thanks to finding some lanes late. Luckily the passing attack was mostly effective despite Brees being under constant duress. It was clear the only way to move the ball was going to be to spread things out. I will say, the...

Saints pummel Cardinals, 31-7, improve to 3-0

The New Orleans Saints may not be playing like it's 2009 exactly but they're starting the season like it's 2009. A staunch defensive effort combined with a pass-happy offense produced a 31-7 win over the Arizona Cardinals (1-2) on Sunday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. It's the first time the Saints have kicked off the season with a 3-0 record since 2009. The Saints...

Rashad Johnson tweets picture of missing finger tip

Sunday, Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson lost the tip of his middle finger (down to the first knuckle) during Arizona’s game with the New Orleans Saints.
