Sean Payton says Delvin Breaux's tryout was one of the best he's seen

At this point, cornerback Delvin Breaux is no longer flying under the radar. He's quickly becoming one of the more intriguing prospects on the Saints roster, and could very well wind up seeing plenty of playing time in 2015. Apparently, though, if you had asked head coach Sean Payton about Breaux, he could have told you about his upside a while back. As Joel A. Erickson of The New...

Sean Payton praises workout of former basketball player Chris Manhertz

When the New Orleans Saints signed another former basketball player at tight end, it immediately led to some eye-brow lifting from fans, for obvious reasons.

The top 10 New Orleans Saints linemen of the Sean Payton era (Part 2)

Last week I went ahead and ranked the 10th through sixth best linemen in the Sean Payton era of New Orleans Saints history. Because it only seemed fair, I actually went with a 10a/10b approach. It was too hard to limit the number to 10, if only because there were probably only seven or eight players truly worthy. By expanding the number to 10, it decreased the quality and widened...

The top-10 New Orleans Saints skill players of the Sean Payton era (Part 2)

I lied. I said this article would be up on Thursday of last week. Sorry (I was flying across country and it just didn’t work so get off my back!). But anyway, I intend this time around to speak of the five best offensive skill players for the New Orleans Saints in the Sean Payton-era, which began in 2006. It doesn’t include Drew Brees, since he has had no competition at the position...
