Saints QB Derek Carr will square off against a few long-time nemeses this season.

By John Hendrix - Saints News Network | SI

New Orleans Saints quarterback Derek Carr spent the first nine years of his NFL career in the AFC West. Carr was the fourth pick in the second round, the 36th overall choice, in the 2014 NFL Draft out of Fresno State by the Oakland Raiders.

An immediate starter for the Raiders as a rookie, Carr started 142 of a possible 146 regular season games over nine years with the team. He'd square off against AFC West opponents Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers, and Denver Broncos twice a year over that span.

Now entering his second year at the helm of the New Orleans offense, Carr will face those familiar foes again in 2024. The Saints and each NFC South team will face each AFC West team once this season, along with another AFC foe.

Carr had a 63-79 record as a starter over nine years with some albeit bad Raiders teams, a winning percentage of just. 444. He completed 64.6% of his throws with 217 touchdowns, 99 interceptions, and 35,222 yards, and average of 248 passing yards per outing. ...

For a long time the New Orleans Saints were the laughingstock of the league. So much so that some fans wore paper bags over their heads while attending home games.

After Hurricane Katrina devastated the State of Louisiana and the City of New Orleans, it looked like hope was lost and the franchise might relocate to San Antonio, but after tons of rumors and speculation, the team remained in New Orleans and two saviors by the names Sean Payton and Drew Brees were about to completely changed the way the New Orleans Saints were viewed.

Now, nearly 20 years later, the Saints have become one of...

76 days until Saints' season opener: Every player to wear No. 76

We’re highlighting every New Orleans Saints player who has worn the No. 76 jersey as we count down the days to kickoff for the 2024 season. Week 1’s Saints-Panthers game is 76 days away, so that’s where we’re picking up our countdown.

The number currently belongs to Trajan Jeffcoat, an undrafted rookie who played college football at Arkansas and Missouri. The most notable player to wear No. 76 to most Saints fans might be Jonathan Goodwin, the starting center on the Super Bowl XLIV-winning team. But older fans might recall right tackle Don Morrison, who started 92 of his 94 games with the Saints in the 1970’s while protecting Archie Manning.

Bleacher Report’s Ryan Fowler projected each team’s biggest storyline walking out of minicamps. The New Orleans Saints biggest storyline heading into training camp is questions of who will start at offensive tackle on each side. Taliese Fuaga and Trevor Penning are the leading contenders, but both are changing positions.

The Saints start training camp on July 24, and players will put on pads a few days later. Organized team activities, minicamp, and training camp practices before the pads are strapped on are valuable, but you can not get a full evaluation of an offensive lineman until...

We’re down to 77 days until the New Orleans Saints’ season opener kicks off against the Carolina Panthers, which continues our countdown of every player to wear No. 77 with the black and gold.

No. 77 currently belongs to offensive tackle Justin Herron, but it was most notably worn by Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Willie Roaf. It was also used by Carl Nicks, a Super Bowl champion and two-time All-Pro left guard with the Saints. Generally preferred by offensive linemen, a handful of defenders like Brodrick Bunkley have also worn No. 77 over the years.

Day 77 of our countdown to the New Orleans Saints season opener lands at the offensive tackle position with newly-acquired Justin Herron, who currently owns the No. 77 jersey. Herron, a former Wake Forest standout, spent his first four years with the New England Patriots and the Las Vegas Raiders playing a total of 35 games in his NFL career.

Before we get into more detail on Herron and his potential role with the Saints in 2024, let’s make sure to highlight him as our Saints Player of the Day.

We’ve still got 78 days to go until the New Orleans Saints open up their 2024 season against the Carolina Panthers, which makes Alvin Kamara’s 78 career touchdowns our Saints Plays of the Day. It’s too tough to pick just one scoring play from his highlight reel as our favorite, so we’ve compiled all 78 of them.

Every touchdown run. Every touchdown catch. Even that impressive touchdown scored on a kick return against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers way back when. The Saints celebrated Kamara winning the team’s scoring record from Marques Colston with a supercut of his first 73 touchdowns, but we’ve filled in the gaps from the back half of his 2023 season. Here’s to many more touchdowns scored by No. 41 in 2024:

We’re counting down the days until the New Orleans Saints kick off their season against the Carolina Panthers by looking back at every player to wear the day’s corresponding jersey number in franchise history.

And with 78 days to go, today we’re highlighting everyone who has used No. 78. It’s an interesting choice for a jersey because it’s eligible for linemen on both offense and defense, so there’s a good variety in the group of players who have worn it. That includes Pro Bowl center Erik McCoy, the current holder, as well as Super Bowl XLIV champion Jonathan Stinchcomb. But they aren’t alone. Here’s the full list:

As Alvin Kamara pursues a contract extension with the New Orleans Saints, let’s take a look at his current contract within the landscape of running back paydays.

Spotrac shared an interesting breakdown of the highest-paid running backs based on contract averages as a percentage of the salary cap when they signed. The key words are at signing. Kamara signed his contract in 2020, and he accounted for 7.5% of salary cap at the time.

The timing of this tweet has led some to question why Kamara would want a new contract. Once again, these figures are at the time of signing. His contract is no...

We’re counting down the days until the New Orleans Saints kick off their 2024 regular season by highlighting each player to wear the day’s corresponding jersey number. And with 78 days to go until Week 1’s matchup with the Carolina Panthers, our Saints Player of the Day is Pro Bowl center Erik McCoy.

Let’s get to know him a bit better and touch on his goals for 2024:

McCoy has been the most consistent member of the offensive line since the Saints traded up to draft him back in 2019, and he was rewarded for his efforts with his first Pro Bowl nod in 2023. This was also the first time he’s...
