New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham had wrist surgery earlier this month, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. The surgery is keeping Graham from playing in this Sunday's Pro Bowl. He was selected as an alternate after the Atlanta Falcons' Tony Gonzalez backed out of the game. Instead, the Minnesota Vikings' Kyle Rudolph will play. Graham reportedly played through the wrist injury for much of the season and did not miss practice. He made 85 receptions for 982 yards with nine touchdowns but led the NFL with 14 drops. It is not clear how much time Graham will need to recover.

NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Saints have fired defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo after one season — a record-setting year in the wrong way.

Saints Nation: NFC Blows Out AFC 62-35 as Brees Plays Well

With the number of injuries that preceded the Pro Bowl I was surprised to see Drew Brees, Jahri Evans and Jermon Bushrod all starting for the NFC on the opening series, considering two of those three weren't even on the team when it was originally announced. All three of them played fine and Brees ended with a stat line of 8 for 11 for 131 yards and a nice touchdown pass to Vincent...

Roger Goodell Hung in Effigy as He Arrives in New Orleans For Super Bowl

Saying that the Saints fans are holding a grudge against Roger Goodell would be like saying that Kevin Garnett trash talking is on a Shakespeare level. Saints fans are really mad at Goodell to the point I think he might need Carmelo Anthony’s bodyguard while he is walking around town. Here are some of the things Saints fans are doing in lieu of his arrival. An effigy of NFL Commissioner...
