New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis speaks during a media availability at the team’s training facilities in April. (Matthew Hinton/Associated Press) (PhatzRadio / CBC Sports) — Louisiana State Police Col. Mike Edmonson says he still has an investigator working with the FBI on wiretapping allegations involving the New Orleans Saints, but adds that no evidence has been turned over to federal prosecutors at this time. Authorities have been working on the case since April, when ESPN, citing anonymous sources, said Superdome wiring was rigged so Saints general manager Mickey Loomis could listen to opposing teams’ radio communications during games. Loomis and the Saints have denied those allegations, and the Saints have hired the firm of former FBI director Louis Freeh to do its own investigation. Edmonson says his investigator has been conducting interviews along with FBI agents. However, Edmonson says it is too early to discuss whether those interviews have produced any cr...

New Orleans Saints 2013 Franchise Tag Candidates

OT Jermon Bushrod On the surface, Bushrod is a valuable member of the Saints’ offense. He has allowed just 7 sacks in the last 2 seasons on one of the league’s most pass heavy offenses and made the Pro-Bowl last year. Pro-Bowl offensive tackles are rarely allowed to hit the open market, almost as rarely as Pro-Bowl quarterbacks. However, while Bushrod has one of the most important...

From Saints to Aints: Baseball meets atheism

ST. PAUL, Minn. As you approach Midway Stadium from the east, the Minneapolis skyline looms in the distance against the hazy August sky, at once too tall and too modern to be so close to this baseball stadium. That skyline has no business with Midway Stadium, with its train tracks and picket fences and mural-covered walls. The home of the St. Paul Saints is charmingly ramshackle...

Saints' Mark Ingram Likes Patriots' Running Back Corps (Video)

While, just like every year, the Patriots came into training camp with most of the focus on star quarterback Tom Brady, there are a number of position battles within the club that probably have a little bit less drama than the starting QB role. One of those battles is at the running back position, where Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen (no relation to Ben Vereen, as far as we know...
