Saints love TE Josh Hill following Jimmy Graham trade

The New Orleans Saints dealt one of the best tight ends in the NFL when they traded Jimmy Graham to the Seattle Seahawks just a couple of weeks ago. However, since the trade took place, head coach Sean Payton has been talking up tight end Josh Hill, who was an undrafted free agent back in 2013 (via ESPN). This Josh Hill is another player that I love. I love. When you look at...

Restudying the Saints needs

If you’ve listened to Mickey Loomis and Sean Payton‘s interviews this past week, you’ve gotten brand new insight into where the roster goes from here. I have to say, that’s more candid and useful sound bites than usual from those two. I think Sean Payton is genuine when he says he’s excited about Josh Hill, Seantavius Jones and Brandon Coleman. I think he hopes at least...

Can a New Look Fulfill Old Expectations in New Orleans?

Change.In the National Football League, that can be one of the biggest words in your vocabulary. And as a player, it can be one of the single most grounding words. For at this level, change can signal both the beginning if a career, but also, for some, signal the end that they weren't quite ready to see come.And as painful as that can be for players, it can be worse yet for a loyal...

Saints need speed

Looking towards the draft and to the history of the last few years there is some trend that I noticed: speed! Some of the recent draft picks the Saints have made were speedy guys, and not just a bit speedy, but very very fast. With the arrival of Jeff Ireland that might change, though. However the speed guys drafted have been all on offense. That tells me Sean Payton loves speed...

You won’t believe how long the Saints & Seahawks talked about Jimmy Graham

The blockbuster trade that sent tight end Jimmy Graham from the New Orleans Saints to the Seattle Seahawks for Max Unger just gets more shocking all the time. One of the more remarkable things about it is nobody knew about the deal before it was announced. Not a single source broke the news, which is stunning given the magnitude of the move… AROUND COVER32 QB Rankings: All 32...

NFL messed up Pittsburgh Steelers compensatory pick, it now improves

The Pittsburgh Steelers were awarded a compensatory pick in the 2015 NFL Draft on Monday night. The league announced it’d be a seventh round pick at No. 252 overall. The NFL (shockingly) screwed up. The NFL has informed us that our compensatory pick will be in the 6th round not 7th in the upcoming draft. — Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) March 25, 2015 The change moves our...

Does Sean Payton Have A Boner In His Pants, Or Is He Just Happy To Be Here?

Sean Payton came out guns blazing for the NFL coaches class photo shoot this year. Payton was packing heat of some sort. Is that a boner? Possibly some proud ass pleats? Payton looks chipper as all hell, chest puffed out, rocking a solid teal on blue look. Andy Reid, if you can read this, don’t […]

Sean Payton: Travaris Cadet’s Hands And Football IQ ‘Are Exceptional’

Sean Payton probably tampered with Travaris Cadet, using the New York Jets’ highly flawed definition of the charge. Payton paid high praise to the New England Patriots’ recently signed running back Wednesday at the NFL Annual Meeting. The New Orleans Saints head coach said he would have brought Cadet back if his team was unable to upgrade the third-down back position in free...

It has been a couple weeks since the New Orleans Saints sent Jimmy Graham packing in a shocking trade to the Seattle Seahawks for Max Unger and a first-round pick. For the first time, the Saints are speaking out on how the trade will impact quarterback Drew Brees moving forward. Head coach Sean Payton spoke with NBC Sports on Monday the situation.

A New Offseason Approach in The Big Easy

Over the past two weeks, one question I get more than any other is: "Have the Saints/Sean Payton lost their minds?" And in all honesty, to the casual fan of the team, I can understand why some of these moves make little sense. So the question of whether they're laying the groundwork for the future, or in panic mode is easier to answer than some would think. If the truth be told,...

Sean Peyton’s new gameplan for the New Orleans Saints is a blast from the past

It’s been a whirlwind of a couple weeks for the New Orleans Saints. In a matter of about 10 days, the Saints released long-time fan favorite Pierre Thomas, defensive leader Curtis Lofton, re-signed Mark Ingram, traded Jimmy Graham for a Pro Bowl center and additional first-round pick, traded Ben Grubbs for a fifth-round pick and Kenny Stills for a starting inside linebacker and...

The Saints ‘do stuff’ like its 2006… How’s it grading out?

So we all saw all that coming right? Yea…me neither. Sean Payton promised us changes would be coming, but I don’t think anyone expected them to be coming like this. We traded our most dynamic offensive weapon, one of our young up and coming receivers, cut our best linebacker (kind of like being the smart Kardashian but…), signed a solid veteran corner, signed an explosive RB...

What is Mark Ingram Worth in Free Agency?

Locked in the catacombs of a Sean Payton backfield, Mark Ingram bided his time. After being selected in the first round of the 2011 NFL draft by the New Orleans Saints, Ingram was relegated to supplemental duty, sharing time with Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles and Khiry Robinson, among others. Yet Ingram finally found the light in 2014, breaking free of his bench-warming duties to...

Sean Payton and the Saints Hope to Re-Sign Mark Ingram

The New Orleans Saints would love to keep running back Mark Ingram, one of the few players who actually shined last season. However, the team is in horrific trouble when it comes to the salary cap which currently is in a deficit to the tune of $21.9 million.

The Top 6 and Bottom 6 Free Agent Signings of the Sean Payton era

This should be a big couple weeks for the Saints starting now. Last year the Saints franchised Jimmy Graham on 3/1, cut Lance Moore on 3/7 and traded Darren Sproles on 3/13. If those dates hold any significance in terms of timing, the action is about to start. Since 2006 free agency has been a real hit or miss exercise for the Saints. In fact, I wanted to do a top five list for both...
