The New Orleans Saints head into 2021 with one of their most uncertain rosters yet. It’s only to be expected after Drew Brees retired, but a slew of recent events have threatened to sidetrack the Saints’ Super Bowl hopes and make this year an uncomfortable one.
The Saints hosted a number of players, including cornerback Prince Amukamara, running back Devonta Freeman and running T.J. Yeldon. They didn’t take long to agree to terms with Freeman on a one-year deal, according to Freeman’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus.
According to multiple reports, the Saints are hosting several veterans on visits Saturday. One immediate transaction that has transpired is the signing of running back Devonta Freeman, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus.
The Saints had their third straight practice of training camp and second one open to fans on Saturday. There was a lot to unpack from the practice session, and we give you a full rundown of our observations here. Be sure to check out what happened on Thursday and Friday.
The New Orleans Saints wrapped up their second day of practice and there was plenty to unpack from Day 2. Fans were allowed to attend this practice, which was the first time Saints fans got to watch their team practice since 2019.
The New Orleans Saints are underway with training camp but that isn’t stopping them from signing guys. A familiar face came to visit the Saints on Thursday, as Tommylee Lewis paid a visit and now is joining the Saints for the time being.
Day 2 of Saints training camp is in the books, as New Orleans spent their time outside with fans being able to get their first glimpse of the team. Here's all the notes and observations from Friday's session, and be sure to check out what went down on Thursday if you haven't already.
Don’t hold your breath on the New Orleans Saints signing a veteran receiver (Chris Hogan hardly counts). According to Tre’Quan Smith, the Saints are going to be just fine going into the season with their current banged-up receiver unit.
The New Orleans Saints know Alvin Kamara’s worth better than anybody, even Madden NFL 22. (It’s a video game, for crying out loud.) Madden recently released their running back ratings for 2022, and Kamara ranked fifth at 94 overall.
We don’t just have to look at wide receivers. We’ve already covered free agent wide receivers who the New Orleans Saints could target to replace the targets from Michael Thomas, but even after the signing of Chris Hogan, the Saints are still looking to address the receiver position as evidenced by their recent workout of Tommylee Lewis.
A sitdown with The Phinsider’s Jake Mendel giving a detailed look into Xavien Howard There is not a day that goes by if you’re a New Orleans Saints fan, writer, or casual observer where you’re left without something to talk about.
In a perfect world, the New Orleans Saints would be contenders to land Xavien Howard in a trade. He’s one of the best cornerbacks on the market and is unhappy with his situation in Miami, making him a trade candidate as we enter training camp season.
The New Orleans Saints are lacking a true No. 1 wide receiver, as Michael Thomas is going to miss several months of the 2021 season. Sean Payton wasn’t happy about this situation and the Saints are not in a good spot at the position, to say the least.
Michael Thomas will miss the start of the upcoming regular season after he underwent ankle surgery in June. Understandably, some wondered why Thomas didn't have the procedure done earlier in the winter or spring.
