SAINTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Even with Ingram and Spiller, Khiry Robinson ready to make an impact

Khiry Robinson may be sitting behind both Mark Ingram and C.J. Spiller on the depth chart for the New Orleans Saints, but that doesn't mean he's feeling like the odd man out according to Mike Triplett of ESPN. “I’m the type of person, I’m gonna get what I get and do what I do with it. So whether it’s 20 carries or one carry, I’m gonna do the best of my ability every play...

What can the Saints expect from CJ Spiller in 2015?

C.J. Spiller signed with the New Orleans Saints this past offseason, and is hoping that a change of scenery can help him get his career back on track during the upcoming 2015 season. He was one of the big additions for the Saints this offseason, although they lost more from the offensive side of the football than they were able to gain. New Orleans ended up trading away star tight...

NFC South Off-Season grades: Saints

Since we are now approaching training camp I figure it’s time I get off my butt and start taking a look into the 2015-16 season. The first thing I want to do is to take a look at all of the teams from the NFC South and I’m going to grade their off-seasons. Now to be clear this isn’t necessarily a grade on the team overall, that will come later when I scout them, it’s just...

Spiller in 2015, but he's confident a role for him in 2015 is assured. “I’m the type of person, I’m gonna get what I get and do what I do with it.

Rookie quarterback Garrett Grayson says New Orleans Saints were one of three teams on his wish list

The politically correct answer is always important during the draft process. A rookie saying, ‘It doesn’t matter what team selects me I just want to be drafted’ is a bunch of malarky. Every rookie has a short list of teams they want to suit up for every Sunday, but it’s a secret because the player doesn’t want to alienate any team. But now as we’re getting closer to training...

5 Ascending Players: #3 Mark Ingram

For this series I’ll be listing 5 players who are the upswing, with the caveat that the player is not a rookie and has spent at least a year with the team, so no Stephone Anthony or C.J. Spiller. #3 Mark Ingram What he’s done so far: Drafted in the first round in 2o11, Ingram struggled to find his footing in the NFL. It wasn’t until the latter half of 2013 that the light...

Who will replace Jimmy Graham for the New Orleans Saints?

The New Orleans Saints have had one of the best offenses in the NFL for about a decade and will head into the 2015 NFL season without one of their top weapons over the years.

Three questions the New Orleans Saints need to answer heading into preseason

If anybody knows what happened to the Saints last year, can you please give me a call? Because I’m still grasping for answers. I mean, there’s no reason why the Saints should have been as bad as they were, even if everything went wrong — which it pretty much did. Before the season started, the general consensus was that New Orleans could very well be competing for a Super Bowl...
