Saints Nation: Saints Announce 2013 Practice Squad

So far there's been no changes to the Saints' active roster, although that could still change in the days leading up to the Falcons game. The Saints did announce that they've filled six of their eight available spots for the practice squad, and unlike last year the names all come from players that participated in Saints' camp this summer, with the exception of Rolle...

Saints Nation: Training Camp Position Battle Preview - Tackles

Tackle is a very interesting position for the Saints this year with Jermon Bushrod gone, as there's tons of depth but not a lot of proven talent. There are a number of players on the roster with intriguing potential so you have to  feel pretty good on one or two panning out, especially given the track record of success this regime has had with offensive linemen. That said, Aaron...

Saints Nation: Saints Slowly But Surely Signing their Draft Picks

It's not a long term extension for Drew Brees, but we'll take the Saints finally inking their drafted rookies. As of a few days ago, the Saints were the only team left in the NFL to not sign a single draft pick. That's something the NFLPA actually cried foul play about. Since then, the Saints have quickly starting taking care of each player. It started with their first...

Defensive back Corey White and offensive tackle Marcel Jones signed four-year deals with the Saints. White was a fifth-round pick out of Samford, while Jones (Nebraska) is the final seventh-round pick this year to sign with his team.

2012 New Orleans Saints Draft Grade

I should probably say something about bounties in the NFL, but really that has been beaten to death at this point. The Saints had little to work with in the 2012 draft, with the trade they made in the 2011 draft to take Mark Ingram and then losing their second round pick because of the bounties program. So we pick up our coverage of the 2012 New Orleans Saints Draft Grade in round...

Draft Grades: New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints had nothing to work with, but I’ll grade them strictly based on the picks which they did have to use. Unfortunately, the Saints took a bad situation and made it worse by consistently reaching and not coming away with any immediate help. Akiem Hicks has the size to play the nose tackle role, which the Saints hoped Shaun Rogers could fill last year. However...

Saints Nation; Grading the Saints' Draft

The New Orleans Saints entered the 2012 NFL draft with little need for immediate starters on either offense or defense, however, the want was there for the Saints to shore up several spots on both sides of the ball with much needed depth. Tight end, defensive tackle, and cornerback were the three positions that required the most depth while every position along the offensive line...
