Wednesday New Orleans Saints News & Senior Bowl Practice Items

If yesterday was about the defensive side of the ball, today is about the offensive side of the ball. It’s easy to blame the New Orleans Saints’ lack of success in 2014 entirely on the defense. And it deserves a lot of the blame. But not all of it. The offense was rugged and at times downright offensive (pun very much intended). The offense had its own troubles. Drew Brees...

Saints take a flyer on Tim Hightower

Before you get too excited, Hightower hasn’t played since 2011 and he was beat out for a job with the Saints by Brian Leonard earlier this season. So this should strictly be viewed as a camp body and while I still suspect Mark Ingram won’t return you shouldn’t take this as a sign.   #Saints signed RB Tim Hightower to reserve/futures contract per source. Hasn’t played since...

Three Things the Saints Still Have to Play for in Week 17

At 6-9, and having been eliminated from playoff contention by virtue of last week's 30-14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, it would seem that all there was left for the New Orleans Saints is to simply make a token appearance this week in Tampa, and shuffle on off to the offseason.
