SAINTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Saints preseason clouded by injuries to key veterans

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Saints coach Sean Payton is willing to concede that New Orleans' preseason hasn't been ideal as far as creating cohesion among projected regulars. A handful of veterans who were expected to compete for starting or regular roles haven't practiced or played much at all in several weeks, and one of them is already out for the season. ''Some of that you can't control...

The names of the cuts are starting to come. First it was Jalen Saunders getting traded to the Patriots for a conditional draft pick.

J.J. Watt 'heartbroken' over Jennifer Aniston's marriage

It’s on to the next chapter for J.J. Watt. Watt has a not-so-secret celebrity crush on actress Jennifer Aniston, so news of her recent marriage to actor Justin Theroux caught the Houston Texans defensive end off guard, to say the least. “She got married a couple weeks ago,” Watt joked Sunday during Houston’s preseason game against the New Orleans Saints when FOX sideline...

Thoughts on Saints 27-13 Loss to the Texans

The Saints are now 0-3 in the preseason and while that’s no reason to hit the panic button, it’s plenty reason for concern. This team looks pretty bad. I took my son to the game (his first) and I felt for him because the experience was pretty miserable in person. I had the opportunity to watch the game later this evening and feel I can now formulate better thoughts with the advantage...

Saints record special Hurricane Katrina message for fans

Ten years ago, Hurricane Katrina ripped through the Gulf Coast of the United States, causing the levees to break and flood the city of New Orleans. That forced many of the residents out of the city, never to return again, but luckily, some have been able to return. There were talks of moving the NFL’s New Orleans Saints to California, but that never happened. The team stayed. The...

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...

Which New Orleans Saints players saw a change in their stock after their second preseason game?

The opening moments of the New Orleans Saints preseason bout with the New England Patriots were a far cry from the display they put on last week against the Baltimore Ravens.
