Brandon Coleman ascending into prominent offensive role

When the Saints failed to sign Greg Jennings this offseason, the opportunity to not only make the roster as a receiver but contribute in a meaningful way was open to a lot of “potential” receivers. Brandon Coleman was certainly no exception. You’ll remember Coleman as the guy that was widely rated as the best undrafted player in the 2014 draft. When the Saints were able to...

Saints Camp Confidential: Quarterbacks Primer

In recent memory, there has been no more scrutinized position for the New Orleans Saints than that of quarterback. And perhaps more to the point, Drew Brees. For the most part, the general media's perception of this team has been when they win it is because of Brees' elite skillset. But when they lose, then it must be because of Brees' diminishing arm strength and the inevitable...

Ranking the NFC South Positional Groups: Safeties

#1 New Orleans The Saints boast some unusual depth at safety. Rob Ryan likes it that way. Jairus Byrd came to New Orleans as a highly sought, ball hawking safety, who looks to regain that title as the entire defense was amiss last year. With the corner position addressed, Byrd should be free to play on instincts. Kenny Vacarro was blunt towards the end of last year, saying that...

Per, New Orleans Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks has the utmost confidence that he has what it takes to become quarterback Drew Brees' number one target in 2015. "No doubt about it," Cooks said.

Is Bobby Richardson the next undrafted rookie free agent to shine for Saints?

Bobby Richardson entered the NFL draft with a 3rd or 4th round grade according to some reports. Unfortunately for him, his dreaded “tweener” status that plagues so many prospects prevented his name from getting called on draft day despite a very successful college career. Richardson was labelled as “too small” for the 4-3 defensive tackle and “not tall enough” to be a...

On August 5th, I will be traveling to West Virginia to watch the New Orleans Saints at training camp as they gear up for the regular season. Specifically, I will be watching the defensive line and special teams to see how the proven veterans are holding up, what players seem to be hitting their prime, and which rookies and undrafted free agents (UDFA) seem to stand out.

A quick recap of Junior Galette won’t ever be welcomed back to the city of New Orleans

To put it nicely, Junior Galette and the New Orleans Saints had one of the ugliest breakups in recent memory, and again, that’s putting it kindly. Unlike most players who’ve been cut by a team for off-the-field issues, Galette didn’t play the good soldier, apologizing for his mistakes and promising that he’ll work to amend his faults if given a new opportunity. No, instead...

Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis have very little to say about Deflategate

For Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis and the New Orleans Saints, it seems that Deflategate isn't a topic they have much interest in talking about.

So this has been an interesting weekend into the start of the week for the New Orleans Saints. Not because anything particularly important has happened.
