Found May 07, 2013 on FF Locker Room:
3.13 New Orleans Saints Terron Armstead, OT, Arkansas-Pine Bluff (6-5, 306) Terron Armstead has a lot of upside at offensive tackle and could, in time, turn himself into a very serviceable offensive tackle in the National Football League. Drafted by New Orleans at the 3.13 position, he has great feet, agility and is a very good athlete compared to most offensive tackles. What holds him back is the lack of strength in his lower body which allows for him to lose leverage against opposing defensive lineman. If he can build up the strength in his lower body and improve on a few technical aspects of his blocking game, Armstead has the potential to become a fixture in the Saints offensive line for years to come.

Saints Nation: The Top 10 Most Valuable Saints in 2013

Every year in May I revisit the roster to designate the ten players on the team that stand out as most important. This is the fifth time I've done this exercise and every year there seems to be a lot of shifts and changes, but there is always one constant: Drew Brees at the top. Last year I had four defensive players on the list and only two this year. Those guys better step...

2013 NFL Draft Team Grades: New Orleans Saints

First Round: Kenny Vacarro, S, Texas It pretty much came down to Jarvis Jones or Kenny Vaccaro here, and I'm really OK with either one. Both are playmakers and the best available at their position. Their defense was so awful last year, that anything here would be an upgrade. Vaccaro I think is pretty underrated and can be a key player in their secondary for years to...

Tyler Norris’ All-Saints team of 1998-2012

I was born in 1991, the son of a longtime New Orleans Saints fan, but I didn’t really start watching football until 1999. Over the years of watching bad teams, learning about teams of the past, enjoying great success over the last few years, and pretty much living Saints football, I’ve gotten to see or become familiar with pretty [...]The post Tyler Norris’ All-Saints team...

Saints Nation: Players That Need to Step Up Their Game in 2013

After reading Andrew's article, I decided to come up with a list of my own. I have highlighted several players that CAN be valuable to the team, but need to step it up in 2013 if they have any hope of sticking with the team in the future. 1. Mark Ingram - I believe in Ingram and his ability to be the featured RB in the Saints' backfield. As you all know, his career...

The New Orleans Saints, BountyGate And History’s First 7,000-Yard Defense

The New Orleans Saints defense was overrun last year like the Mexican-American border before harvest season. The pressure is on Drew Brees to continue his world-class play and on rookie first-round pick Kenny Vaccaro to make an immediate and much-needed impact in the secondary.

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton receives an honorary doctorate from Eastern Illinois University

According to, New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton has been granted an honorary doctorate degree from Eastern Illinois University.  Perhaps people should start calling him Dr. Payton now. [...]

Saints Nation: Only One Saint Makes Pro Football Focus' Top 101 in 2012

Pro Football Focus is a website I mention often as I'm a big fan of their stuff, and they just released a Top 101 of 2012 listing the best players of the year. I view this as way more notable than the NFL Network's top 100 players because it actually grades each player individually on every play as oppose to just being a popularity contest. Sadly last year's 7-9 Saints...
