New Orleans Saints rookie receiver Brandin Cooks dazzles in win over Rams

New Orleans Saints rookie wide receiver Brandin Cooks seems to have made a habit of turning almost every practice snap into some kind of spectacular play. In training camp, he's looked fluid on punt returns and stole the show in the Black and Gold Scrimmage last week. Cooks made Saints players like cornerback Patrick Robinson look pedestrian on the practice field. And while...

5 Bold Predictions for the Upcoming Season

Today I’m going to go over some bold predictions I have for the Saints for the 2014 season. These are in no particular order.  That being said, let’s get to it. 1. Khiry Robinson will emerge as the #1 back: Nobody doubts this dude’s talent or will to work hard. We all saw it at the tail end of last season and into the playoffs; he is a workhorse.

Saints sign NT Tyrone Ezell and LB Marcus Thompson

The new additions are nose tackle Tyrone Ezell and linebacker Marcus Thompson, and they released NT Moses McCray and LB Cheta Ozougwu.

Five Saints players with the biggest question marks surrounding them going into camp

Going into camp we already have a good feel for the Saints’ roster and the role most players will have. This is a mature team with an established track record and along with that comes proven commodity players that are known entities. The identity of the team is largely formed from a tenured coaching staff and talent, and so they’re just building on top of the foundation that’s...

Five biggest questions going into Saints Training Camp

With OTAs now wrapped up the Saints have some time off before diving back into the season full bore. The Saints will report to the Greenbrier in West Virginia on July 24th to start training camp, which means the players have a little over a month off. This is known as a pretty dead period in terms of news unless the players are doing something stupid. So basically no news is good...

Saints cornerback Patrick Robinson has much to prove going into his fifth season

The last time anyone outside of the New Orleans Saints facility got a glimpse of Patrick Robinson in uniform, the image wasn't pretty. Robinson's knee crumpled underneath him while trying to make a play on the soggy grass of Raymond James Stadium against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last September. He was carted off the field in agony with an injury to his patella. Robinson...

CB Robinson getting chance to start fresh

The only thing that stood out as much as Jairus Byrd’s absence from New Orleans Saints practice on Thursday was the presence of cornerback Patrick Robinson on the starting defense. Robinson, who missed most of last season with a torn patellar tendon, was considered by many analysts to be on the bubble this offseason because of his rising salary and inconsistent production over...

Gamble on Champ Bailey could pay off big for the New Orleans Saints

With the signing of cornerback Champ Bailey on Friday, the rest of the league was dumbfounded. They kept on wondering how Mickey Loomis is still making things work (because no one seems to get that Jimmy Graham’s cap hit is A: already accounted for and B: higher now than it will inevitably end up being in 2014), and Champ joined a team that he described as “very close” to a...
