Found April 01, 2013 on FatManWriting:
This must be a sports blogger's idea of an April Fool's Day prank. There just isn't any other explanation. If it isn't I can't find anything to back up the story so this guy must have one heck of an inside source if it is true. According to a story on Saints Nation, the New Orleans Saints have traded two draft picks (a third rounder this year and a second round pick next year) for Atlanta Falcon wide receiver Roddy White. Genius right? Bring in one of the best wide receivers in the game and pair him with one of the best passing quarterbacks in the game--absolute genius! Buy why would the Falcons do it? White was their leading receiver last year with over 1300 yards. Together with Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez the Falcons have a pretty potent attack. They are under the cap so they don't need to create space. To further muddy the waters, in order to have room for White under the cap the Saints had to cut Marques Colston--their No.1 receiver ...

I started out by writing a post called "when are the Saints going to trade Ingram", but after thinking about it there is no way they will trade Ingram.

Saints add Luke McCown, Kenyon Coleman

The New Orleans Saints signed free agent quarterback Luke McCown and defensive end Kenyon Coleman. McCown was on the Falcons’ roster in 2012, and the 33 year-old Coleman was with the Cowboys for the past couple of years.  Both players give the Saints some much needed depth.       Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('...

Saints Nation: Saints Sign QB Luke McCown to Back Up Brees

Ok this isn't an April Fool's joke, I promise. The Saints signed their backup quarterback and it'll be Luke McCown out of Louisiana Tech. Of course that doesn't rule out the team bringing in a young understudy or even a veteran, but at this point I picture McCown being the #2 this year with an undrafted quarterback likely being on the practice squad.
