Why other players are scared of the New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints were expected to make some big changes coming off  a disappointing 7-9 season in 2014. However, Sean Payton and the rest of the Saints coaching staff shocked most with the trade of crowd-favorite Jimmy Graham and with the acquisition of C.J.

This insane Drew Brees stat shows he’s still one of the best quarterbacks in the league

Drew Brees has consistently been one of the best quarterbacks in the league since he joined the New Orleans Saints in 2006.  Nearly every year though, someone wants to try and count Brees out, and even when he has to carry the whole team on his back, he still manages to perform at an elite level. For being one of the best quarterbacks in the league, Brees is often sorely underrated...

Khiry Robinson looks to be more than a third wheel

Sitting behind a Pro Bowler in Mark Ingram and capable starter in C.J. Spiller does not discourage Khiry Robinson from believing he is capable of more than a third-string role with the New Orleans Saints.

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.

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...

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