Saturday Night Slant:
Once again, Andrew Juge over at The Saints Nation invited me to talk a little NFL Draft. I appreciate the opportunity to dive into the NFL and specifically, the Saints, each year around this time. We also talk plenty about LSU's draft eligible players, the top draft picks out of the SEC, and some underrated and overrated players in this draft. I also encourage you to make The Saints Nation one of your daily stops. I know many of you are Saints fans and Andrew always has great takes on everything Saints. He's seriously got one of the best Saints sites on the web. Here is the link to the article.

It's bad enough that Roger Goodell levied an extremely harsh sentence on Sean Payton, but the waiting game on player suspensions makes it even worse. We already know Goodell is going to punish the team even more by laying down players suspensions, but it's the delay of that inevitability that is starting to cause even more problems. If, God forbid, these suspensions get announced...
The schedule is finally out and I have to say, overall, it's not bad. I have the whole schedule listed on the right side of the site to check out. The Saints have 4 prime time games: 2 Sunday night games, 1 Monday night game, and one Thursday game. As expected, the Falcons rivalry got a primetime slot and that will be the game in Atlanta on Thursday 11/29. The Sunday night games...

The New Orleans Saints inked cornerback Jabari Greer to a three-year, $23 million contract extension Friday, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.Greer had one year remaining on his previous contract with his base salary being just under $6 million.

Thank you NFL Draft, for restoring normalcy to a wickedly insane offseason. The playoffs were a downright bummer for this Saints fan. The Super Bowl was whack.

So needless to say, this chick could use the distraction that the draft tends...
