The announcement was made by Saints’ Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis.

  • Goodbye To All That
    This is my last post here, because I'm done with the NFL. So let's get one thing straight from the beginning: this is not a response to the Saints' loss at Seattle. Actually, I had been planning something like this for quite a long time, to be posted after the last game of the season—whatever that game was, however it ended. This is all about the damnable behavior of the so-called men behind the current NFL.

  • Carolina In My Mind
    Three and out. Savor those words. Let them sink into your brain and emboss their shape on your cortex. Three and out. The phrase describes almost perfectly the course of this, one of the epic losses in the long, tawdry history of New Orleans Saints losses. It describes the Carolina offense, which was helpless until it wasn't. It describes the Saints' offense, which needed just ten yards to seal a victory already won, and instead gained no yards at all. I wonder: does it describe the end of our season?

    The Saints' loss to the Seahawks was so one-sided, so crushing a defeat, it seemed there must be shell craters on the New Orleans sideline. It wouldn't have surprised me to hear that Sean Payton had shot himself to avoid capture. But even so, it left behind unanswered questions: were the 2013 Saints nothing but a mirage? Or are the Seahawks really this good?

Should he sign a contract with a new team, the Saints, if they choose not to match the offer, would receive two first-round draft picks as compensation for losing Graham.Likely before any (meaningful) negotiations take place, however, there is the issue of whether Graham will be designated as a tight end or a wide receiver.

    In a way, Reggie Bush, Jeremy Shockey and Darren Sproles helped Saints’ early triumph in Jimmy Graham grievance

    Saints coach Sean Payton’s past use of playmakers such as Reggie Bush, Jeremy Shockey and Darren Sproles helped New Orleans win lots of games and field some of the NFL’s most potent offenses. But Payton probably never imagined that would one day help the Saints score an initial victory in this offseason’s franchise-tag dispute with […]

    Saints take aim at each other, renew paintball tradition

    When the Saints convened for work on Tuesday, the NFL’s mandate against live tackling was still in place. But they introduced more contact than might be typical this time of year by renewing a tradition: leaving their practice facility in Metairie and playing some paintball. The Saints divided themselves into a gray squad and a […]

    Knowing it’s never too early to execute well, Saints offense does in final minicamp drive: Quick observations

    It was third-and-goal from the defense’s 4, there were fewer than 20 seconds left, and Saints quarterback Drew Brees shouted at his teammates, “Dig deep!” Then, after the snap, Brees saw Kenny Stills slip inside and behind safety Rafael Bush, and he connected with the second-year receiver for a touchdown that capped off a 13-play, […]

    Former Saints LB Jonathan Vilma possibly joining Falcons?

    Because Falcons linebacker Sean Witherspoon sustained a ruptured Achilles tendon this week that’s expected to end his 2014 season, Atlanta is considering signing former Saint Jonathan Vilma as a replacement, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport. Rapoport reported late Wednesday on Twitter that Vilma as well as free-agent linebackers Pat Angerer and Tim Dobbins were all […]

    Falcons' Reedy is ready to pursue dream

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Atlanta Falcons rookie Bernard Reedy is still waiting for his NFL career to take off, but his acting career has launched -- sort of.Before minicamp concluded in mid-June, the diminutive, undrafted receiver from Toledo was summoned by "the skinny white guy who always wears sunglasses" -- better known as football communications coordinator Matt Haley -- for a video session with the crew from HBO's "Hard Knocks.""I think they said they're going to have me 'mic'd' like two times a week," Reedy said of the Falcons' upcoming training camp documentary.

    Saints' Jairus Byrd remains on schedule

    New Orleans Saints safety Jairus Byrd's recovery from back surgery has gone as expected this summer, according to a league source. Byrd is expected to be healthy enough to participate in training camp, though it’s unknown if he will be limited when the Saints begin practicing Friday at the Greenbrier resort in West Virginia.Obviously there’s a good chance the Saints will take a cautious approach with their prized free-agent acquisition.

    Five questions for reporting Falcons rookies

    The Atlanta Falcons are set to begin training camp on Friday, and the process begins with the rookies scheduled to report Tuesday.First-round draft pick Jake Matthews should have no problem making the adjustment. Here are five questions for some of the other rookies as they head into their first training camp:1) Will Prince Shembo take full advantage of his golden opportunity? The former Notre Dame Fighting Irish standout could earn a starting role at inside linebacker following a season-ending injury to Sean Weatherspoon (Achilles).

    Saints' Cooks on fast track to rookie of year

    New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson was trying to be a voice of reason when describing the potential of rookie receiver Brandin Cooks.Watson said there are too many variables when it comes to making any kind of NFL Rookie of the Year predictions -- things such as injuries, grasping the offense and adjusting to NFL defenses.But like everyone else on the practice field when Cooks first showed up this summer, Watson couldn't help but be taken aback by what he saw from the 5-foot-10, 189-pound speedster out of Oregon State.

YatesThe Falcons are counting on Ryan to play like an elite quarterback with a full complement of receivers and better protection. They feel like they upgraded the backup quarterback position by trading for Yates, the former Houston Texan who has a playoff win under his belt. If the Falcons indeed go with just two quarterbacks, as expected, look for undrafted rookie Jeff Matthews to be on the practice squad.

    Fact or fiction: Coaching and special teams

    Let’s conclude our fact-or-fiction series with coaching and special teams.1. The arrival of coach Lovie Smith makes the Buccaneers an instant playoff team.Our take: Fiction.Justify it: There's little doubt Smith will be better than predecessor Greg Schiano. Smith is a proven winner in the NFL. Players like working for him and he commands respect. All that being said, Smith still faces a tough job. This team was 4-12 last season. The Bucs were very aggressive in free agency and that will help.

    Father knows best: Jake Matthews ready

    One NFL personnel man said he was concerned with Jake Matthews' strength prior to the draft. At least one team that drafted in the top 10 this year ranked Zack Martin -- the 16th overall pick of the Dallas Cowboys -- ahead of the Atlanta Falcons' rookie right tackle because of concerns over Matthews' ability to finish.Such nitpicking of his son's game seems comical to Hall of Fame offensive lineman Bruce Matthews, particularly the strength part of it.
