Sean Payton: Saints addition of Adrian Peterson is rare chance to add HOF player Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 01:39 PM

By Josh Katzenstein, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

The New Orleans Saints announced the signing of running back Adrian Peterson to a two-year contract Tuesday afternoon.

Peterson, who was a first-team All-Pro four times with the Minnesota Vikings, visited the Saints two weeks ago, and the two sides made the deal official Tuesday.

"We are excited to welcome Adrian to the New Orleans Saints," Saints coach Sean Payton said in a statement. "It's rare and unique to have the opportunity to add a Hall of Fame player to your roster. His career has been top-notch and speaks for itself. We think he will be an excellent fit in our locker room and in our offense. We look forward to the opportunity later this spring to work with him on the field along with the rest of our team."

Peterson will come in and compete for carries with Mark Ingram, who is coming off the best year of his career. The addition of Peterson doesn't necessarily mean the Saints won't draft a running back this week as they could still use a pass-catching back to compete with Travaris Cadet for that role...

Potential Malcolm Butler trade has become 'less attractive' to Saints: report Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 01:34 PM

By Josh Katzenstein, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

The New Orleans Saints have done all they could reasonably do to research the possibility of trading for New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler, but that doesn't mean a deal is guaranteed to happen.

According to Sports Illustrated's Monday Morning Quarterback, sending draft picks to the Patriots then giving Butler a hefty contract is "less attractive than it once seemed" for the Saints.

Here's what Peter King wrote Monday about the potential deal:

"The Saints (picking 11, 32, 42, 76, 103 in the first three rounds) are still interested in Butler, but someone familiar with their thinking believes they are leaning toward keeping their first three picks. The Saints believe that their board between 25 and 75 has a slew of players capable of contributing immediately, with grades close to each other, and the thought of dealing one or more picks for Butler, then paying him a huge contract, is less attractive than it once seemed."...

All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson agrees to deal with Saints Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 01:31 PM

ESPN.com News Services

All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson has agreed to a deal with the New Orleans Saints after spending the first 10 years of his career with the Minnesota Vikings.

The deal, while technically covering two years, is a one-year deal plus a one-year option.

"We are excited to welcome Adrian to the New Orleans Saints," coach Sean Payton said in a team statement. "It's rare and unique to have the opportunity to add a Hall of Fame player to your roster. His career has been top-notch and speaks for itself. We think he will be an excellent fit in our locker room and in our offense.

Adrian Peterson signing: How he'll fit with Saints, what it means for Mark Ingram, more Posted By: Dan in Lafayette Posted On Today 09:53 AM

By Nick Underhill -- Advocate

Sometimes an opportunity arises that is too good not to explore.

The Saints have a need for another running back to help Mark Ingram carry the load, and Adrian Peterson needed a place to play football next season. Those two pieces fit together perfectly. So, it made perfect sense for the two sides to come together on a deal as they did on Tuesday.

"I am excited to be joining the New Orleans Saints," the former Minnesota Vikings running back told ESPN. "I’m really looking forward to this opportunity. Most importantly, I chose this team because it just felt right within my spirit."

1 Defense reigns as Advocate writers take over Saints' war room for final mock draft simulation Posted By: Dan in Lafayette Posted On Yesterday 05:00 PM

By Joel Erickson & Nick Underhill -- Advocate

By the time the first round of the NFL draft arrives Thursday, hundreds of mock drafts have been released, and the best might get only nine picks right. Rather than trying to predict the whims of 32 teams, Advocate sportswriters Nick Underhill and Joel A. Erickson are back for another mock draft that is more exercise than prediction, playing the role of the Saints’ top two decision-makers instead. A draft simulator handles the other 31 teams; Underhill & Erickson make the Saints picks.

First round

1. Cleveland Browns: Myles Garrett; 2. San Francisco 49ers: DT Jonathan Allen; 3. Chicago Bears: DL Solomon Thomas; 4. Jacksonville Jaguars: TE O.J. Howard; 5. Tennessee Titans: LB Reuben Foster; 6. New York Jets: QB Mitch Trubisky; 7. Los Angeles Chargers: S Jamal Adams; 8. Carolina Panthers, WR Mike Williams; 9. Cincinnati Bengals: RB Leonard Fournette; 10. Buffalo Bills: S Malik Hooker.

Underhill: This sets up well if the Saints miss out on Malcolm Butler. The top cornerback, Ohio State's Marshon Lattimore, is available, and there are other good options with edge rushers Derek Barnett of Tennessee and Charles Harris of Missouri, as well as Temple's Haason Reddick, who is kind of a hybrid linebacker/pass rusher. Oh, and if the Saints want to go quarterback, Clemson star Deshaun Watson is also there.

Malcolm Jenkins acknowledges Saints trade rumors Posted By: Dan in Lafayette Posted On Yesterday 04:25 PM

By Jimmy Kempski -- Philly Voice

Before the official start to the new league year back in the beginning of March, the Eagles were heavily rumored to be interested in trading for New Orleans Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks, who was instead eventually dealt to the New England Patriots.

Soon after, a report from Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk surfaced that Malcolm Jenkins was offered up in trade discussions with the Saints. The validity of that report was hotly debated, but Jenkins confirmed that his name was involved, and he even added that the Saints had been inquiring about him long before March.

Know Who to Blame if Saints Botch the Draft Posted By: Dan in Lafayette Posted On Yesterday 04:03 PM

By John Sigler -- CSC

The week of the 2017 NFL Draft is finally upon us, threatening to put months of speculation and mock drafts to rest. Teams have invested hundreds of hours in film study, interviews, and workouts to figure out what makes prospects tick.

Some teams do that better than others. The Saints have been fortunate to get a lot of production out of recent draft picks, but looking over their history you’ll see more misses than hits.

As we draw closer to draft day, it’s important to remember who calls which shots in the New Orleans Saints front office. Some titles can be misleading.

A major force in turning the tide of bad draft fortune has been Jeff Ireland. The former Miami Dolphins general manager has been working as a scout for NFL teams since 1997, and got his start as an area scout for the NFL Scouting Combine in 1994. Despite the Dolphins’ shortcomings under his management, Ireland is a respected talent evaluator and has done a good job as the Saints’ college scouting director/assistant general manager.

Cornerback Malcolm Butler likely staying with Patriots Posted By: Dan in Lafayette Posted On Yesterday 03:34 PM

By ESPN.com News Services

It is highly unlikely that cornerback Malcolm Butler will be traded from the New England Patriots this offseason, sources confirmed to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Butler signed a one-year, $3.91 million tender with the Patriots on Wednesday, which means New England has the opportunity to trade him.

Butler, who was a restricted free agent, had previously not signed the tender in hopes that another NFL team might sign him to an offer sheet before Friday's deadline. He visited one team, the New Orleans Saints, earlier in free agency.

Saints nearing deal with running back Adrian Peterson: sources Posted By: Dan in Lafayette Posted On Yesterday 03:19 PM

By Josh Katzenstein -- Picayune

The New Orleans Saints might still find their No. 2 running back before the NFL draft begins Thursday.

Adrian Peterson, who visited the team facility two weeks ago, is nearing a deal with the Saints, two league sources told Jeff Duncan of NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune.

The 32-year-old Peterson has been a free agent since the end of February when the Minnesota Vikings declined the 2017 option on his contract.

Why the New Orleans Saints should draft Treston Decoud Posted By: Dan in Lafayette Posted On 04-23-2017 09:28 PM

Could Treston Decoud put the Saints defense back on the map?

By Andrew Kovac -- SB Nation

The New Orleans Saints have been putrid on defense to say the least in recent memory, thus cornerback being their primary need come draft night. Who many are calling one of the draft’s deep sleepers is Treston Decoud of Oregon State, a modern day lockdown corner with rare size and length. Decoud’s nose for the ball and reading of a quarterback’s eyes speak for his success as an upperclassmen, putting forth numbers nothing short of sensational.

As a junior, Decoud posted 50 total tackles, 31 solo, 3.5 for loss, five passes defensed, and a sack, making his name known to Beaver nation. In Eugene against the arch-rival Oregon Ducks, Decoud put his breakout performance on full display, with nine total tackles, seven solo, and a pass defensed. Although a 52-42 loss, the 2015 Civil War set the stage for Decoud’s 2016 senior campaign, ultimately turning the heads of NFL scouts and general managers.

Time for Saints to trade for Patriots CB Malcolm Butler is quickly approaching Posted By: Andrus Posted On 04-23-2017 04:04 PM

By Herbie Teope, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

We're nearly two months removed from the start of the New Orleans Saints' flirtation with Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler.

His name swirled as possible compensation in the Saints' trade of Brandin Cooks to New England. Butler's contract situation halted the corner's involvement in the blockbuster trade back in early March.

The courting continued about a week later when the Saints hosted Butler, then an unsigned restricted free agent, for two days of New Orleans cuisine and a vast tour of the Saints facility. The story fizzled out thanks to a lack of immediate urgency to make a deal given the RFA parameters.

"Listen, he's a guy we thought enough of in this process (to bring in)," Sean Payton said last month at the league owners meetings. "But we'll see, though. I think it might take a bit of time."

Marques Colston, Rickey Jackson headline best draft picks for Saints Posted By: Andrus Posted On 04-23-2017 04:02 PM

By Mike Triplett | ESPN Staff Writer

Here’s a look at the best draft picks by position for the New Orleans Saints:


Quarterback: Archie Manning, first round, 1971, Ole Miss. We’ll get to some late-round steals later on this list, but Manning is an easy choice for this honor as the No. 2 overall pick in the 1971 draft. Though he infamously spent much of his career running for his life behind some shaky offensive lines, Manning is a two-time Pro Bowler who ranks second in franchise history in passing yards (21,734) behind Drew Brees. He was one of three inaugural members of the Saints’ Ring of Honor in 2013.

Running back: Deuce McAllister, first round, 2001, Ole Miss. Maybe New Orleans should draft all its players from Ole Miss. McAllister was a bit of a surprise pick at No. 23 in 2001, since the Saints already had Ricky Williams. But they couldn’t pass up the value, and he wound as the team’s career leader in rushing yards (6,096) and rushing touchdowns (49). The Saints have had a lot of success drafting running backs in their history, including No. 1 overall pick and Offensive Rookie of the Year George Rogers in 1981...

1 The Draft is Almost Here -- Mike Detillier Posted By: Dan in Lafayette Posted On 04-22-2017 08:49 PM

The Draft is Almost Here

By Mike Detillier -- Thibodaux Daily Comet

The word from numerous people close to the situation is the haggle on a probable trade of New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler to the New Orleans Saints has everything to do with the fact that the Saints do not want to part with the 32nd overall pick (the last selection in Round 1 of the 2017 draft) to acquire him.

The Patriots want back their late first round choice and the Saints have so far balked at that compensation demand.

The Saints value that last pick in Round 1 in a great manner due to the fifth-year option you would get with a first-round pick.

It also opens up the possibility that the team could deal down for extra picks since they don’t have selections in Rounds 4 and 5, if they hold on to the 32nd spot.

The 2017 NFL draft is stacked with defensive players and, at the present, the Saints do have two first-round picks and two third-round selections, but knowing they need help not only at cornerback and defensive end, but also at safety, outside linebacker, right offensive tackle, running back, another receiving weapon at either tight end or wide receiver, the Saints want more selections in this deep draft class.

On Friday, Mahomes was in Tyler to watch some football as he took in the Tyler Junior College spring game with family and friends.

NEW ORLEANS - At first glance, the NFL schedule makers have dealt the New Orleans Saints a potentially troubling hand to open the 2017 season.

Read ’em and weep.
  • At Minnesota on Monday Night Football in Week 1.

  • Defending Super Bowl champion New England at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in Week 2.

  • At Carolina in Week 3.

  • Then, a trip across the pond to face the Miami Dolphins in London in Week 4.

NFL Prospects from THE BOOT -- Mike Detillier

NFL Prospects from THE BOOT

By Mike Detillier

I have been evaluating college talent headed to the NFL for 30 years and every year something jumps out at me. In the 2017 NFL draft class, what jumps out to me is the huge amount of potential pro prospects with Louisiana roots available to the 32 NFL teams.

Six out of the last nine years Louisiana per capita has produced more NFL players than any other state in the United States. In those 3 other years they came in second.

I have never seen so many potential Louisiana pro prospects in my 30 years covering the college football world in one draft class. Below are prospects who played high school football and grew up in Louisiana.

In my potential top-30 prospects Louisiana has 4:

Leonard Fournette-Halfback, LSU (St. Augustine)
Tim Williams- Outside Linebacker, Alabama (University Lab)
Cam Robinson-Offensive Tackle, Alabama (West Monroe)
Tre’Davious White-Cornerback, LSU (Green Oaks-Shreveport)

Prospects considered to be selected in the second or third round of the 2017 NFL draft Louisiana has 6 in:

Malachi Dupre-Wide Receiver, LSU (John Curtis)
Davon Godchaux-Defensive Tackle, LSU (Plaquemine)
Jeremy Cutrer-Cornerback, Middle Tennessee (Jewel-Sumner-Kentwood)
Duke Riley-Outside Linebacker, LSU (John Curtis)
Carlos Henderson-Wide Receiver, Louisiana Tech (McDonogh 35)
Kendell Beckwith-Middle Linebacker, LSU (East Feliciana)

NFL prospects with very late third round into the fifth round Louisiana has 6 prospects:

Tanzel Smart-Defensive Tackle, Tulane (Scotlandville Magnet)
Chad Williams-Wide Receiver, Grambling (Madison Prep)
Elijah McGuire-Halfback, UL-Lafayette (Vandebilt-Catholic)
Trent Taylor-Wide Receiver, Louisiana Tech (Evangel Christian)
Travin Dural-Wide Receiver, LSU (Breaux Bridge)
Xavier Woods-Strong Safety, Louisiana Tech (West Monroe)

Prospects with either sixth or seventh round pick grades Louisiana has 7 potential draft choices:

Cameron Tom-Offensive Center, Southern Mississippi (Catholic High B.R.)
D’Nerius Antoine-Strong Safety, Southern Mississippi (Westgate)
Cethan Carter-Tight End, Nebraska (Rummel)
Josh Boutte-Offensive Guard, LSU (Westgate)
B.J. Singleton-Defensive Tackle, Houston (Destrehan)
Lenard Tillery-Halfback, Southern (McKinley)
Dwayne Thomas-Cornerback, LSU (O. Perry Walker)

Prospects who just missed out on late round pick grades and will be signed as NFL free agents Louisiana has 5 in:

Speedy Noil-Wide Receiver/Return Man, Texas A&M (Edna Karr)
DeSean Smith-Tight End, LSU (Barbe)
Rickey Jefferson-Free Safety, LSU (Destrehan)
Lazedrick Thompson-Halfback, Tulane (St. Charles Catholic)
Otha Peters-Outside/Inside Linebacke,r UL-Lafayette (Covington)

The above numbers are just remarkable for our state to produce in one draft class.

Watch for Engram

I know the New Orleans Saints need help on the defensive side of the ball, but we all know Sean Payton loves offensive players and this is an offense-driven league. In Round 2 of the 2017 NFL draft don’t be surprised to see the Saints take a long look at Ole Miss tight end Evan Engram, if he is still on the board.

The 6-3, 230 pound Engram has re-written the Rebel records for receptions for tight ends and he wowed the scouts in Mobile, Alabama this past week at...
