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...

Virtual Reality Could Be More Than A Fantasy For NFL’s Future

There was an interesting article posted on the league’s website yesterday that centered around comments made recently by New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton, who is evidently in support of incorporating virtual reality as a training technique for quarterbacks. The article also touches on other technological elements of advancing the game that I think […] Virtual Reality...

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. In a sport that truly is a year-round endeavor, however, this certainly won’t be a quiet time on the calendar. So with that thought in mind, cover32′s James Merilatt came up with five bold...

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...

What are the New Orleans Saints' Plans at Tight End?

Since the beginning of the Sean Payton/Drew Brees era, the Saints have been a team that utilized the tight-end position extremely well; this has been a huge part of their offensive success. In 2014 the Saints tight ends were, like always, a huge part of the offense's scheme. So if New Orleans wants to keep this strategy heading into 2015, what changes need to made? Last season, the...

New Orleans Saints should call the Vikings about Adrian Peterson right away

Three years ago, one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history hit the free agent market, as Peyton Manning was released by the Indianapolis Colts. This offseason, one of the best running backs to ever play the game is most likely available, as Adrian Peterson’s days with the Minnesota Vikings appear numbered. After missing most of last season due to a suspension that stemmed...

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...

New Orleans Saints Insider: Brandin Cooks

In his rookie season, Brandin Cooks showed tremendous athleticism. From the reverse to the 'go route,' this Oregon State Beaver did it all. After being drafted by the Saints, it seemed that Sean Payton already knew where and when to put Cooks in for the big play. His debut season had high expectations, and those expectations were fulfilled. With 53 receptions and 550 yards, Cooks...

New Orleans Saints climb in the latest Power Rankings

The offseason is only unofficially upon us, as teams have made coaching and front office changes, released players to create cap space, made decisions on their own pending free agents, and started evaluating draft prospects. As a result, teams look slightly different now than they did when the regular season ended. And that means it’s time to once again grade each franchise in...

Jameis Winston Reportedly Met with the New Orleans Saints

A handful of quarterback-needy teams with early first-round picks in the upcoming draft met with Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston at the NFL Scouting Combine. However, one of the somewhat more surprising of teams who reportedly met with Winston was the New Orleans Saints. Probably just an act of due diligence, it is still intriguing that the Saints—selecting 13th overall—chose...

How do the Saints overcome salary cap issues?

New Orleans Saints Facing a Crossroads in 2015 Season

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. And their role isn’t just as a possession receiver...

Patrick Robinson coming back to the Saints?

And before you go insane, I’m totally fine with this. He’s a decent slot corner and/or reserve guy. Just not a starter. He improved greatly last year when he got bumped from the starting lineup.
