New Orleans Saints waive WR Seantavius Jones Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 02-08-2016 07:06 PM


Full Story – Nola.Com


The New Orleans Saints waived receiver Seantavius Jones on Monday after stashing the young undrafted free agent on the practice squad for most of the last two seasons.

The move was among several executed by the Saints on the first day teams were allowed to cut signed players.

The Saints also released veteran guard Jahri Evans and linebackers David Hawthorne and Ramon Humber.

New Orleans Saints release veteran guard Jahri Evans Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 02-08-2016 07:03 PM

The New Orleans Saints have spent the last two offseasons shedding themselves of their aging veterans as they look to the future.

On Monday, one more piece of the Saints past is now gone.

The Saints released longtime veteran guard Jahri Evans on Monday afternoon, arguably one of the greatest offensive linemen to ever don a Saints uniform. Evans, 32, played for New Orleans for 10 seasons and was one of the few remaining members of the 2009 Super Bowl winning squad.

Super Bowl 50 super end to super career for Peyton Manning: Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 02-08-2016 08:11 AM


Full Story – Nola.Com


Santa Clara, Calif. – Peyton Manning is living proof that if you love the game of football it will love you back. Play the game the right way, respect it and honor it, sacrifice for the greater good, and the game will eventually reward you.

Last March, Manning swallowed his pride and agreed to a $4 million pay cut in order to return to the Denver Broncos and make one final run at a Super Bowl title.

And 11 months later, in what likely was the final game of his spectacular career, the gridiron gods granted Manning the ultimate parting gift: a Super Bowl title.

Brandon Browner serves as another costly New Orleans Saints mistake Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 02-05-2016 11:12 PM


Full Story – Nola.Com


Admitting a costly mistake has become an all-too-common occurrence for the New Orleans Saints the last couple of offseasons.

Add cornerback Brandon Browner to the list.

The beleaguered, over-the-top penalized Browner said his apparent goodbyes to New Orleans early Friday morning as it appears the Saints will soon release him.

The signing of Browner cost them bundles of cash, numerous touchdowns and an NFL-record 24 penalties for 207 yards. The release of Browner will cost the Saints north of $5 million toward the 2016 cap meaning more dead money to a cap-strapped team.

Browner posted a series of messages on social media Friday morning thanking New Orleans and referring to his tenure in the past tense.

"100 (percent) appreciate the opportunity the Saints gave me," he wrote.

Around the football world -- Mike Detillier Posted By: Dan in Lafayette Posted On 01-31-2016 01:55 AM


Around the football world

By Mike Detillier

In 2011, the Carolina Panthers made a choice with the first-overall pick of the NFL draft that has been the “game-changer” to their success.

Auburn quarterback Cam Newton looked to be the obvious selection with the top overall pick for most of the draft process, but late with public pressure coming from the major sports networks to select either Texas A&M's Von Miller or Alabama defensive tackle Marcell Darius, the Panthers decided to stick to their guns and select the Auburn Heisman Trophy winner.

The analysts at those networks publically going strong for either Marius or Miller, and both are outstanding NFL football players, was puzzling.

But give the management team at Carolina full credit for selecting a player in Newton who can't be compared to anyone in the league today or in my lifetime.

The “read option” or “spread option” quarterbacks have struggled in the NFL to say the least, but Newton has not.

His ability to make big plays with his power/speed skills as a runner is unique, but where he has really improved his skillset is as a pocket-passer and throwing the long middle to deep passes with accuracy. And that ability has put the Panthers in a spot to be in the Super Bowl and win it.

Based on the short five-year run on Newton as an NFL player, Carolina drafting Newton in 2011 may well be the most significant selection in the league in the last decade.

Not only did the Panthers hit with the top choice in 2011, but in 2012 the Panthers selected middle linebacker Luke Kuechly in the first-round and cornerback Josh Norman from Coastal Carolina in the fifth-round.

Kuechly, who the Panthers picked in the opening round from Boston College, is the best middle linebacker in the game today for his ability to play the run and even more importantly cover an opponent's running back or tight end in the coverage part of the game.

Norman has emerged as one of the NFL's top three cover cornerbacks and came out of seemingly nowhere over the last two years to be called an elite player at his spot and he has shut down the vast majority of star wide outs in the game.

In 2013 the Panthers selected Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei in the first-round and Purdue defensive tackle Kawann Short in the...
Saints, Sean Payton have hit ground running this offseason Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 01-27-2016 03:23 PM


Full Story –ESPN.Com


Sean Payton doesn't want to be here.

When asked during Tuesday's Senior Bowl practices about how the New Orleans Saints seem to have hit the ground running this offseason, Payton said he much prefers the years when the Saints fall behind because they go deep into the postseason.

That being said, there is a distinctive vibe that the Saints are more ahead of the game this January than they were at this time one year ago -- despite matching 7-9 records.

A year ago, the Saints vowed to take a long, hard look at every facet of the organization after they felt like they had let the culture of the team slip for the first time in the Payton era. That led to major changes to the roster, coaching staff, scouting staff and playbook.

Saints quarterbacks: Drew Brees silences doubters in 2015 Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 01-19-2016 11:24 AM


Full Story – Nola.Com


Even after big changes, the 2015 New Orleans Saints looked remarkably similar to the team of a year earlier: A potent offense, an awful defense and a 7-9 record with no playoff berth.

With another important offseason looming, we're looking at each position group to see what went right and what went awry in 2015.

Our review of the quarterbacks is the sixth installment in our nine-part series. Check out our reviews of the cornerbacks, safeties, defensive line and linebackers and specialists from last week.

10 years of Sean Payton with the Saints: What are your memories? Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 01-19-2016 11:21 AM


Full Story – Nola.Com


New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton said so himself: "It doesn't seem like 10 years."

Today (Jan. 18) marks the 10-year anniversary of when the team introduced Payton as the 14th coach in team history.

His arrival came less than five months after Hurricane Katrina made landfall, and the Saints have since won a Super Bowl, played in two NFC title games, won three NFC South titles and made five playoff appearances.

This by far has been the most successful stretch of 10 seasons in franchise history, as Payton's 93 regular season and postseason wins are tied with Jim Mora for the most in team history.

Mickey Loomis: Saints never considered trading Sean Payton Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 01-14-2016 05:26 PM


Full Story – Nola.Com


New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said he never had a discussion with coach Sean Payton about parting ways nor did he entertain any trade offers from other teams.

"Here's what I can tell you: I never had a discussion with another team. No one called me and I never called anyone else," Loomis said during a meeting with New Orleans media on Thursday.

Asked if he had ever contemplated what would be appropriate compensation for releasing Payton from his contract, Loomis replied, "Not really."

Saints GM Mickey Loomis: 'Drew Brees is going to be our quarterback' Posted By: mvtrucking Posted On 01-14-2016 05:24 PM


Full Story – Nola.Com


New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis promised Thursday that Drew Brees would remain the team's quarterback, but he didn't reveal any details of expected offseason contract negotiations.

Brees is under contract for 2016, but his $30 million hit against the salary cap could be reduced if the contract is extended.

"I know this: Drew's going to be our quarterback," Loomis said. "We'll figure out how we're going to handle the contract, whether it stays the same and just remains right in place, or whether we do something different. That's all part of what we've got to figure out in the coming weeks."

Dan Campbell, the Dolphins’ ex-interim head coach, is joining the New Orleans Saints as their assistant head coach/tight ends coach, according to multiple reports.

Campbell spent a year as a player with the Saints in 2009 under coach Sean Payton.

He was promoted to interim head coach after the Dolphins stumbled to a 1-3 start and coach Joe Philbin was fired. Campbell had been coaching the Dolphins’ tight ends.

The Saints didn’t have anyone named to the initial Pro Bowl roster.

That doesn’t necessarily mean the team will not be represented in the game.

New Orleans left tackle Terron Armstead announced on his Twitter account that he has been selected as an alternate for the Pro Bowl, meaning he could be tapped to play in the game if any of the other tackles drop out.
