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...

Episode 50: Cadet and company

On Friday's edition of Treatment, the Helpers discuss the addition of Travaris Cadet to the Patriots and what it means for the RBs fantasy value. They also discuss Darren McFadden and how the Dallas Cowboys are kicking the tires on the veteran running back to see if there's any juice left. First thing that came to my mind when McFadden signed with the Cowboys was 'it's about time...

Travaris Cadet Could Join Third-Down-Back-By-Committee To Replace Shane Vereen

The New England Patriots appear ready to replace Shane Vereen by committee. The Patriots added pass-catching threat Travaris Cadet on Tuesday, leading many to believe the former New Orleans Saints running back would replace Vereen as the team’s third-down back. Cadet proved to be a solid option catching the ball out of the backfield last season, recording 38 receptions for 296...

Travaris Cadet signs with Patriots

After losing Tyrunn Walker earlier this week to the Detroit Lions, the Saints have now lost another restricted free agent in Travaris Cadet. Cadet signs with the Patriots and that’s a good situation for him. They lost Shane Vereen and there’s no reason why Cadet can’t be a Danny Woodhead type for them with a similar skillset. Bringing him back wasn’t critical for the Saints...

Grading eight free agent running back options for the New Orleans Saints

It’s hard to explain just how great of a deal the New Orleans Saints got with Mark Ingram’s new contract. Few teams can say that their starting halfback accounts for only 2.8% of their total salary. That same player is now locked up for the next four years for the prime of his career (Ingram is only 25), has four years’ experience in the Saints’ offense, and doesn’t have...

The New Orleans Saints (Offensive) Identity Crisis

The 2014 New Orleans Saints scored their fewest points since 2010 and third fewest in the Sean Payton-era, putting just 401 points on the board or almost exactly 25 points per game. I detailed many of the issues last week, naming specifically red zone problems, turnovers and horrible pass protection. Those are all true, and equally responsible for the digression of the once explosive...

From this point forward we will be getting into position groups which I believe need to undergo varying degrees of change for the Saints to live up to their potential.

Saints Nation’s Top 10 Plays of the 2014 Season: #4 Jalen Saunders Kickoff Return vs. Falcons

Many of us have been clamoring for an explosive returner since before Darren Sproles left. Saunders has proven to be a keeper and I look forward to him making the Saints roster in the same role next season. There is no way Travaris Cadet should be returning kickoffs over him. I submit this return as proof to start the Falcons game. Too bad the game didn’t turn out better and the...

The Saints marched down the field and settled for a field goal to take a quick 3-0 lead to start the game. Hard to believe they wouldn’t score again until the 4th quarter on their way to getting completed dominated by the Cincinnati Bengals. The final score was a deserving 27-10.

Sitting precariously on top of the NFC South with a 4-5 record and one game lead on the Atlanta Falcons, it’s clear that there are problems with the New Orleans Saints’ roster moving through the 2014 season and looking forward to the 2015 offseason, when free agents and draft picks are expected to bring fresh life to the team.  It’s far too early to write the current season...

Gameday!! The Saints play their third game in eleven days. And while that sucks for preparation and the bodies of the players, it’s kind of awesome for us the fans.

Close loss to Lions makes 2-4 a reality for Saints

For about 56 minutes of the Saints 24-23 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday, there was hope. It appeared that finally, the real Saints team decided to show up. The defense that allowed 28.2 points per game through the first five games was uncharacteristically stingy–only allowing 10 points. The offense–and Drew Brees–had moments of old, such as an effortless 46-yard touchdown...

We knew this game would most likely be a shootout and we knew the offense would have to be near flawless to have a chance at giving the team a win. And yet, we still kind of expected it. Instead, we were rewarded with a 0 point effort in the first half. Anything that happened after that was just stat padding formality because the damage was done.
