NFL Trade Rumors:
Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune writes that Saints head coach Sean Payton will probably hold off on signing a new contract with the team and is more likely to “keep his options open.”
Triplett adds that the Saints will not force Payton sign a new contract and wouldn’t ask him to stay in New Orleans against his will.
“There is no indication that Payton is unhappy in New Orleans or looking to leave the Saints,” writes Triplett.
According to Triplett’s sources, the Cowboys are the only team that could entice Payton to leave New Orleans, which coincides with numerous rumors in the past few weeks since the news of the league voiding his contract become public.
Dallas has repeated said that they intend to keep Jason Garrett in place as their head coach and have had no internal discussions regarding Payton. ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that sources have informed him that it’s unlikely that the Cowboys would be willing to payoff Garrett and hire Payton.

The New Orleans Saints offered up head coach Sean Payton a contract extension recently but the NFL league office decided to void the extension, making Payton a free agent head coach at the conclusion of the regular season. When the news broke of Payton’s impending free agency, several pundits speculated that he might jump to the Dallas Cowboys.

According to Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Sean Payton isn’t expected to re-sign with the Saints right away. He’ll continue to keep his options open and right now. The only real option aside from going back to New Orleans, would be to sign with the Cowboys since his kids live in Dallas and he has a great relationship with Jerry Jones.
From talking with...
Saints head coach Sean Payton had his contract voided by the NFL two weeks ago. Since then, there has been plenty of speculation on where he might land. Places like Cleveland, Philadelphia, San Diego and Dallas have been brought up repeatedly.
Since the news broke, I’ve said that I don’t think he goes anywhere but New Orleans and that they’d work out an extension that the league...
According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles is healthy enough to play this week if the Saints are ready to use him. RB Darren Sproles healthy enough to play if Saints decide to use him vs. Raiders and other three backs also likely to be active #saints — Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) November 16, 2012 If Sproles is truly ready to go, I don’t see...
The Saints seem to have things together, is it too late to make a playoff push?
After a rough Week 10, I'm sitting at 92-54-1. Who wants to keep track of a tie.
Let's see if I can turn this around this week.
Arizona at Atlanta - The Cards need to get some production from the QB position if they want any chance to make playoff this season.
New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles was back at
practice yesterday after being sidelined for the past several weeks due to a
hand injury. The speedy back was full-go and it looks like he’ll be ready to
play this weekend when the Saints take on the Oakland Raiders.
Sproles underwent surgery on his broken left hand in the
beginning of Nov. While the recovery time was...
Chris Ivory has played so well the last two weeks there's almost no way the Saints can go back to shelving him on the inactive list again. If nothing else, he's secured his spot in the rotation as a situational runner for the Saints. But why did it take so long for the Saints to plug him in there, especially when Mark Ingram had performed so poorly, and why are the Saints...
So it seems that as soon as I give my vote of confidence to a certain player, they have a knack for underperforming.
Last week’s article featured a picture of Buccaneers running back Doug Martin. He followed up his monster week 9 with a pedestrian week 10, rushing for just 68 yards. Martin did have 51 receiving yards, but failed to score for the first time since week 6.
Dennis Allen is the 18th head coach for the Oakland Raiders, but in his first year, his 3-6 team is struggling.
Before he landed in Oakland, and prior to Allen being with the Denver Broncos in 2011, he learned his trade in New Orleans as a defensive backs coach.
Allen sat down with the Jerry McDonald of the San Jose Mercury News to talk about his time in New Orleans.
The New Orleans Saints listed running Darren Sproles as questionable for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders. Sproles has missed the past two weeks after undergoing surgery on a hand that was injured in a loss to Denver in week eight. Interim coach Joe Vitt said Friday that Sproles experienced some swelling in the hand. If Sproles plays Sunday, Saints offensive coordinator...

We’re talking bout practice Juan…
Julio Jones left the game against the Saints last week, only to return and grab a nice little 52 yard bomb. Now, he has missed practice all week and will be a gametime decision according to Mike Smith.
Smith: “These guys are so close and moving in the right direction that we’ll make a determination as late as we possibly can,” Smith...
Gameday is here and with it comes a chance for the Saints to claw their way back to .500 for the first time since week 2! For them to get to 5-5 after an 0-4 start would be somewhat miraculous, but also necessary to have any shot at the postseason. The opponent is an extremely beatable one, but the "easier" games, which don't truly exist in the NFL, are the ones the...
