Slip-up forces Saints teammates to share a bed

Remember that time you went on a business trip and had to share a room with your co-worker and the hotel messed up and gave you just one bed in your room? No? Just me? That’s fine. Well that did happen to me and needless to say I was angry, but at least I wasn’t a professional athlete traveling with an NFL team. Saints teammates Andy Tanner and Austin Johnson got a lovely surprise...

Two Saints Players Stuck Sharing One Bed In Training Camp Hotel Room (Photos)

A couple of New Orleans Saints players are getting cozy at training camp — but it’s not like they have any other choice. Receiver Andy Tanner and fullback Austin Johnson are just two young guys hoping to make the Saints’ final roster, but they’ll have to accomplish that dream with just one bed in the room they are sharing at the historic Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia...

Saints Players Enjoy Golf, Flowery Wallpaper at Greenbrier

The New Orleans Saints are holding their training camp at The Greenbrier for a few weeks beginning on Thursday, so the team is getting settled into its new home for a while. While The Greenbrier, which hosts the PGA Tour’s Greenbrier Classic every year, is a pretty fantastic place to call home, there’s just one problem … the rooms aren’t exactly fit for large, tough football...

Tanners last ride and other Saints predictions

At this point, it is an expectation for Saints fans that we will be making the playoffs. With both a potentially easier schedule than last year as well as what should be a much improved overall team it’s an expectation that is warranted. I have already gone as far as to predict a Super Bowl win, and I am certainly not alone with that expectation. Even Drew Brees has publicly acknowledged...

New Orleans Saints Mini Camp Exclusive: Part Two

The New Orleans Saints wrapped up their 2014 Mini Camp on Thursday afternoon in Metairie. Of the past two days, Thursday was more lively—both among the fans and the players—despite the temperatures remaining stifling. Unlike Wednesday, Drew Brees received his common standing ovation when emerging onto the practice field from the locker rooms. Other fans cheered loudly for fan...

Turnovers are the focus for the Saints defense this offseason

In the Saints’ first organized team activity open to reporters this summer, rookie cornerback Stanley Jean-Batiste slapped the ball out of receiver Andy Tanner’s hands after he made a catch. A few minutes later, safety Rafael Bush stripped Marques Colston as he tried to run with a reception. Non-contact, late-May OTA workouts are not the best predictors of the future, but the...

New Orleans Saints: Why drafting a wide receiver is the biggest need

With the NFL draft less than a month away, the New Orleans Saints are looking to enhance their roster for another possible Super Bowl run. Fortunately for the Saints, an aggressive free agency period has put General Manager Mickey Loomis in a position to draft the best player available, rather than focus on a single need. This doesn’t mean that no position should take priority...

Saints Recap: Who Makes the Cut?

If you managed to sit through that 3-hour blooper reel referred to as preseason game 4 between the Saints and Dolphins, congratulations! You’re not only a true fan but a total masochist. The game, in which starters for both teams spent most, if not all, of their time on the sidelines, ended as sloppy as it began. The Dolphins came away with the victory, not that it matters...

What to watch for during tonight's Saints-Dolphins preseason game

Three Key Things To Watch For Tonight, as the Saints determine which 22 Players To Cut: 1. Red hot receiver battle: Draft pick Kenny Stills likely has the 3 receiver spot locked up, but Nick Toon, Preston Parker and Andy Tanner are making strong pitches to be in the Saints receiving corps number. Toon is a draft pick from last year, so this decision might come down to Tanner and...

Roster spots on the line in Saints' final preseason game

The Saints are headed to Miami for a fourth preseason game versus the Dolphins Thursday night that will serve as the final job interview for many talented players embroiled in a heated battle to survive Saturday's upcoming roster pruning. Many of the Black and Gold's starters won't see much action, if any at all - including Drew Brees. Back up Luke McCown is slated...

Saints Nation: 2013 53 Man Roster Prediction (Part 3.0)

With another preseason game in the books the roster is starting to take shape and we're all starting to see more clarity on what roles players will have coming into this season. Most of the guys on the outside looking in did themselves no favors and there were few surprises. Most notable perhaps is the battle for the fourth running back is now completely neck and neck, perhaps...

Both sides of the ball for the Saints have goals to reach

As the New Orleans Saints gear up for the final push of training camp, both sides of the ball have definitive goals to reach. Offensively, much of the veteran core is in place, yet flow and execution are two areas of concern, given the young group of receivers competing to replace Devery Henderson. Quarterback Drew Brees and sidelined veteran receiver Marques Colston are teaching...

Competition for Saints third receiver heating up

The New Orleans Saints are turning up the intensity in the competition for the team's third wide receiver. So far it has already been a sizzling race to see who will serve as the complement to Marques Colston and Lance Moore. The pool of candidates seemed deep with young guns Kenny Stills, Preston Parker, Andy Tanner and Nick Toon all delivering impressive performances as of...

Saints Nation: Receiving Core in a Better Place Than I Expected

I thought the receiving core depth WITH Joe Morgan was suspect at best entering training camp. When he went down, I wasn't sure what to think. Then I was thrilled by the Steve Breaston signing. Now? I'm not even sure Breaston will catch up fast enough to make the team because the core is so loaded. How things change quickly, but I was thoroughly impressed by how many capable...

Saints Nation: Andy Tanner In the Mix

As the days of camp go by, predicting roster spots is a total crapshoot because it's so dependent on injuries. Things can change in the blink of an eye, and the "next man up" mantra can apply quite harshly. A guy can go from the outside looking in, to on the 53 man roster in one second. Or the opposite, where a guy that's a lock has it all blow up in his face at...

Saints Nation: Saints' Current 2013 Depth Chart

With all the new additions here is how I view the depth chart currently. This is unofficial, of course, but the lower down these guys are the harder they'll have to fight to move up. Keep in mind only 53 guys will be on the final roster and it currently stands at 87. There's a good chance they'll be more additions between now and training camp, too. QB: Drew Brees...

If you had told me at the beginning of training camp that the Saints would bring in Greg Camarillo at some point during the preseason, I would have told you he stood zero shot at making the roster because the Saints' depth was too significant. Marques Colston, Lance Moore and Devery Henderson had and still have the top three spots locked up - none of that has changed. Behind...
