All I wanted to do was lay down and do nothing. So I popped in the Super Bowl XLIV Champions New Orleans...

A few ex Saints are still looking for NFL jobs

When you look at the Saints roster you get the feeling it is close to complete but they could still round out some of their needs with some post draft pick ups. When the Saints start seeing some of these guys practice, too, they’ll get a better feel for whether or not they need to bring in certain veterans at a given position. And of course there’s still guys that were with the...

All good things must come to an end, and 2013 is the end of an era for the Saints.

All of them were big contributors in the 2009 season, when Hell froze over and the Saints won their first Super Bowl in history. In the five years since then,...

2014 Saints Position Breakdowns: Defensive Backs

Before the addition of Jairus Byrd, the defensive backfield was a major concern and desperate for talent. Losing Roman Harper, Jabari Greer and Malcolm Jenkins complicated matters. Adding Byrd is a game change, of course, but cornerback remains one of the weakest positions of depth on the team. Keenan Lewis is a rock cover man and a terrific land for the Saints a year ago, but the...
