Twitter Tuesday: New Orleans Saints DE Cameron Jordan is a wild animal

On the football field there’s no doubting that Saints’ defensive end Cameron Jordan is a beast. In an interview last week, Jordan took that metaphor a step further.

Three Saints make the NFL Network 2014 Top 100 list

The NFL Network finally revealed the final part of its top 100 list and the entire list featured three Saints players.

This list is always made up of player votes. Brees is up from #11 last season and Graham resurfaces for the...

Jordan Cameron Changes Twitter Bio To Avoid Jimmy Graham-Like Mistake (Photo)

The bio section of Twitter may seem like a throwaway information field, but it helped cost one of the NFL’s most dynamic players $5 million this week. A fellow Pro Bowler decided he wasn’t going to let the same thing happen to him. New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was given the franchise tag, and a dispute ensued with Graham insisting he should be tagged as a wide...

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was finally, officially, ruled a tight end on Wednesday by an arbitrator.  The ruling brings to an end the dispute over what position Graham really played – tight end or wide receiver.  And, it means Graham’s franchise tag is now in the $7 million range instead of $12 million.  Even though Graham lined up a majority of snaps away from...

One of the issues regarding Jimmy Graham’s fight with the Saints over whether he is a receiver or not had to do with him self-identifying as a tight end on his Twitter profile. I don’t know how much that factored into the fact that he was ultimately ruled a tight end, but Jordan Cameron decided not to take any chances.

A look ahead: New Orleans Saints 2015 draft prospects / part two

For fans of football (that’s not of the soccer variety being played in Brazil), this is perhaps the most boring period of the year; free agency and the draft have come and gone, OTAs are over and training camp is yet to begin.

After Spag’s firing, in stepped Rob Ryan and his 3-4 base scheme. The...
