Lions draft preview: Detroit lost Suh, Fairley but should still be a contender

The Detroit Lions hold the No. 23 overall pick in the NFL Draft. In our 32-team preview series, FOXSports.com takes a look at their roster post-free agency and delivers a plan of attack for the last day in April. Losing defensive tackles Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley to free agency certainly stole the headlines in Detroit this offseason. While the Lions initiated a trade with the...

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...

Saints lose Tyrunn Walker to the Lions

This is not a good loss. He was the Saints’ best reserve lineman and improving each year. Really unfortunate to see him go, but he’s definitely worth what he’s getting paid.   Per @skiernan78 Non-Tendered DL Tyrunn Walker signs $1.75M/1 Yr w/ $750k Bonus w/ @lions Over $200k more than RFA tender of $1.542M. — Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) March 13, 2015

Lions Sign DT Tyrunn Walker To A One-Year, $1.75M Deal

Tim Twentyman reports that the Lions have signed DT Tyrunn Walker to a one-year contract. Mike Garafolo confirms the deal and adds that Walker receives a one-year, $1.75 million. Walker, 24, was set to be a restricted free agent, but the Saints didn’t offer him a tender last week. However, this contract will actually pay him $200,000 more than the ...

Saints letting Tyrunn Walker test market

This below makes sense because the minimum tender is around $1.5 million and there’s no way the Saints can afford to pay a reserve lineman that much. Losing Walker would be a bummer, though. As an undrafted rookie he has exceeded expectations and has been a rare bright spot as a developing reserve. The guy can play inside, outside, rush the passer and play the run a little bit...

Position Review: Defensive Line

Now at last we are getting to one of the three positions on the team that the Saints MUST address in the off-season in some shape or form if they want to even dream of winning the division…much less the Super Bowl.  The Saints Defensive Line took the biggest step back of any unit from 13′ to 14′. That’s right it fell further than the corners or the linebackers the two units...

Saints Whip Packers 44-23

As the Falcons, Panthers and Bucs all lost today in last second fashion, the refrain of how bad the NFC South is was strong as ever. But the Saints wouldn’t be included in that mess today. The Saints are now 3-0 at home on the season and being back in the Dome seems to be the cure all. After trading points for a 16-16 tie at halftime, the Saints went on a tear in the second half...

Saints win preseason opener 26-24 at Rams

It was about what you’d expect from a preseason game. Lots of sloppiness, mistakes, and boredom to a degree. But I thought the positives outweighed the negatives overall. The Rams missed a 59 yard field goal just wide left at the buzzer to finish the game. The Saints will leave this game with plenty to work on but when you consider the fact that both sides of the ball showed good...

New Orleans Saints will likely avoid defensive tackle in draft

As we continue to analyze this year’s NFL draft, it looks like the New Orleans Saints will be avoiding the defensive tackle position…at least through the early rounds. The interior of the Saints’ defensive line was a strength this past year, and with Cam Jordan continuing to move towards his role as a more traditional 3-4 defensive end there is little need to draft a playmaker...

2014 Saints Position Breakdowns: Defensive Line

This has been on the backburner recently with the flurry of activity, but needs for the roster still exist so let's get back to it. The defensive line is probably in better shape than almost any other position on the roster. Hard to believe after it was so poor in2012 that it's become one of the biggest strengths on the team. That said, depth and young talent is always something...
