Should New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees be the next star to take a pay cut?

After leading his team to a third-consecutive AFC West title, a 12-4 record and the No. 2 seed in the conference, Peyton Manning was asked to take a pay cut; that’s a huge piece of humble pie for a quarterback who is 38-10 since taking over in Denver. But the Broncos needed salary cap help, so their highest-paid player was the leading candidate to provide them some much-needed...

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees doesn’t fare well in latest QB Rankings

Quarterback remains the most-important position in all of sports, but that doesn’t mean it’s not evolving. In fact, the past 10 years have seen a drastic shift in the way success is defined behind center. No longer are quarterbacks asked to simply stand in the pocket and deliver passes to receiver. More and more, they are becoming dynamic, two-way threats, players who can torment...

It’s the symbol that represents a city and a franchise; it’s the mark that fans wear with pride, showing their allegiance to their favorite team. That’s what makes a logo important.

The New Orleans Saints need to grab this interior lineman in the NFL Draft

Glamorous. That’s not the word that comes to mind when thinking about players along the offensive line. And it’s especially not attributed to the guys in the middle of that group, the guards and center. While “skill-position” players get all of the headlines, and offensive tackles get the biggest contracts, interior linemen toil in relative anonymity. But in the center of...

Can the New Orleans Saints afford a d-lineman in free agency?

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...

Bold prediction suggests New Orleans Saints could bring an old friend back

Now that the games are over, the next few months will be spent following the NFL’s off-the-field news. This will include free agency, the draft and random things like the police blotter.

The New Orleans Saints can’t forget an offensive lineman in free agency

It’s a tough position to evaluate. There aren’t a lot of stats to help with the cause. Styles of play can sometimes skew opinions. And the difference between a win and a loss on any given play isn’t always black and white. But what is clear is that it’s a vital position. Whether a team is run-first or pass-happy, the ability to control the line of scrimmage is the key to...

Is New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees too low in this week’s QB Rankings?

Quarterback is the most important position in all of sports. That’s why teams are so willing to pony up big bucks to a signal caller when they have (or think they have) a guy who can do the job. One look at the highest paid players in the NFL will support this fact; it’s a list littered with QBs. But part of the equation is also tied to supply and demand. Sometimes, teams are...

Should the New Orleans Saints consider a TE in the NFL draft?

It may not seem like a glamourous position, as tight end is still viewed by many as a job that is as much about being an offensive lineman as it is a wide receiver. But that’s a notion that is quickly changing, becoming more and more outdated with each passing season. Across the NFL, tight ends are a major part of passing attacks.

Should the New Orleans Saints pursue a WR in free agency?

If the NFL truly is a pass-happy league, then there are two parts to making that equation work. First, a team has to have a good quarterback; without someone to throw the ball to the right place at the right time, nothing else about the passing game will work. But second, a franchise must have people on the receiving end of those passes who can make plays; without teammates to catch...
