Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that a league source has informed him that the Saints haven’t begun contract discussions with TE Jimmy Graham and adds that there’s ”no indication” that they will. Graham, 26, will be entering the final year of his contract next season and has a base salary of $1.323 million. He’s quickly become one of the best weapons in the league and there’s no doubt that the Saints would like to ensure that he remains in New Orleans for the foreseeable future. Florio makes the point that the Saints could probably save money in the long-run by addressing his contract now rather than allow him to gain extra leverage as he nears free agency. But, the real issue for New Orleans is the fact that they’re in a tough cap situation and are prepared to make the transition to a 3-4 base defense next year. There has already been plenty of talk that they could shed a number of big salaries in the coming weeks, but even then it wouldn’t be easy to fit a long-term deal ...

Saints Nation: Five Free Agents the Saints Could Target

We're about three weeks from the free agency window opening up, so I plan to talk more about this soon. In the meantime, we all know the Saints don't have a 2nd round draft pick and they are completely strapped for cash. Signing top tier talent for big money is probably not going to happen, so any free agents the Saints land will either be cheap or second tier talent. That...

Pierre Thomas Is Kid Friendly At The Blackhawks Game

Pierre Thomas was once again a multi-talented threat out of the Saints backfield, but with Sean Payton on vacation in 2012 the backfield was all over the place.  All four backs had fantasy value at one time or another, it was just hard to figure out who to use and when.
