The day Malcolm Jenkins was drafted by the New Orleans Saints out of the 1st round he came with very high expectations. He was rated the best defensive back of his class and the Saints were ecstatic that he dropped to them. At the time Jenkins was a cornerback and the Saints dispelled any rumors he possibly projected as a free safety. Of course, the Saints felt pretty good about Darren Sharper as their starter back then. 2009 ended up being a decent season for Jenkins as a reserve corner that saw him play well as a nickelback and notch one interception. In 2010, the Saints made the move to free safety official, as Jenkins replaced Darren Sharper. Sharper would sit out the first half of 2010 with a bum knee, and return for the second half as a shell of his former self. Upon his return, Jenkins saw more time at corner - but was platooned at safety. Last year was Jenkins' first full year at safety, one that was supposed to yield his breakout season. Instead, it was a major regressi...

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees said that players don't trust Roger Goodell when he was asked about players' attitudes towards the NFL commissioner.
Ben Grubbs says that when he ventured into free agency, New Orleans seemed like the right fit personally and professionally.
Grubbs grew up in Alabama and played at Auburn, and when All-Pro left guard Carl Nicks left New Orleans during same offseason in which Grubbs became a free agent, the opportunity to return to the South and join a record-setting offense presented itself.
Drew Brees offseason contract dispute with the Saints hasn't dampened his desire to be a good teammate, or to take care of his team's fans who have been braving the heat and rain to come out to Saints training camp. On Saturday fans were treated to free Plum Street Snoballs as Brees had arranged for a truck to come to practice. "It was funny because a few days before...
Jabari Greer has a pulled groin that limited him during Tuesday's practice and left the Saints without either of their first-team cornerbacks on the field.
Cornerback Patick Robinson, who hurt his shoulder Sunday afternoon, has not yet returned, and assistant head coach Joe Vitt says he could be sidelined a couple more days

We aren’t going to think that Drew Brees’ feelings towards NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has anything to do with the penalties the Saints faced or Head Coach Sean Payton’s suspension, this has to be rational. Right?
Peter King with Sports Illustrated recently sat down Drew Brees and Brees’ did not disappoint.
“Nobody trusts him. Nobody trusts him. I’m not talking...
Well-respected Saints quarterback Drew Brees told NFL Network on Wednesday that he was representing the league's consensus opinion earlier this week when he said nobody trusts NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. "I was asked a direct question: How do players in the league feel about the commissioner?'" Brees told Marshall Faulk of NFL Network. "I've talked...
Willie Roaf might have missed out on a whopping 11 Pro Bowls had he been 2 inches taller.
Fortunately for the New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs, Roaf, who loves basketball and says he can still dunk at age 42, stopped growing when he was 6-foot-5.
Roaf says if he had been 6-7, he probably would have kept playing basketball in college, but instead took one of only two scholarship...
Catch me if you can Juan…
Lots of worries in fantasy circles about the state of the Saints offense in 2012. Color me not concerned. Pete Carmichael knows whats up with this offense and Drew Brees is a surgeon. Darren Sproles role will not change and he should be in line for plenty of receptions once again.

When Drew Brees speaks, many people listen. And not just in New Orleans. After a training camp practice this past weekend in Metairie, the Saints quarterback fired the latest salvo at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. "Nobody trusts him. Nobody trusts him," Brees said when asked about players' attitudes toward Goodell. "I'm not talking about a DUI, or using a...

With most of the roster set, Saints interim head coach Joe Vitt decided to move practices to the mornings, in part to make sure the team is getting in full sessions. It's back to more of the normal training camp routine after it made more sense to have afternoon practices last year with so much turnover following the end of the lockout and quick start to camp. "This...

The Saints Cheerleaders went marching in to camp with their Drew Brees jerseys to show their goods. I’m not sure they have anything on the Cowboys’ girls. You decide.

Brees Signs A Jimmy John Sub
Defensive tackle Alex Daniels was signed by the Saints, who waived cornerback Cord Parks. Daniels entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie out of Cincinnati in 2010, signing with Oakland. He has spent time on the practice squads of the Cowboys and Giants, who worked him at fullback.
