We knew that this was certainly a possibility as we got into the season'

By John DeShazier - Senior Writer | New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints will be without starting safety Marcus Maye for the next three games, as the player and team learned Wednesday that Maye was suspended by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Maye started at strong safety the first two games, as the Saints opened 2-0 for the first time since 2013. He totaled 13 tackles, a sack, an interception and a pass defensed in the two games, but a possible suspension had been looming since Maye reached a plea deal and was given six months probation following a 2021 driving under the influence charge.

Maye will miss Sunday's road game against Green Bay, New Orleans' next home game Oct. 1 against Tampa Bay, and the Oct. 8 road trip to play against New England.

"We've got several options that we have to fill in in that role," Saints Coach Dennis Allen said. "We'll go through the week of practice, we'll make a determination on where we're going. ...

Saints make pair of roster moves-Canal St Chronicles

The New Orleans Saints activated Tony Jones Jr after his two-touchdown performance in Carolina as well as signed a veteran DB.

The seven-year vet will serve his second suspension in just two seasons with the Black and Gold. The three games begin immediately.

We take a look at the matchup between the defense of the Green Bay Packers and the high-powered offense of the Saints.

Chris Olave had a strong game, but the performance of a running back elevated from the practice squad may just take the cake.

The Black and Gold is 2-0 for the first time since 2013.

The New Orleans Saints went on the road to play the Carolina Panthers and picked up a 20-17 victory to start the season with an NFC South win early on in the year.

The resurgence of Tony Jones Jr. in this contest was also a ton of fun to watch. Let’s get into what stood out from the primetime win.

There’s really no way to sugarcoat this if you’re the Saints. Derek Carr wasn’t at his best Monday night. He made poor decisions, missed on several throws, and just looked off. Now there were moments where he shined, but overall, you...

The New Orleans Saints have announced that they signed RB Tony Jones Jr. to their 53-man roster from the practice squad. They have also signed DB Cameron Dantzler Sr. to the practice squad.

Jones was signed in 2020 by the Saints as an undrafted free agent. He briefly spent time with the Seattle Seahawks in 2022 and spent the 2023 preseason with the Denver Broncos. He was re-signed to the Saints practice squad at the start of the 2023 regular season. In Monday night’s game against the Carolina Panthers, Jones had 12 carries for 34 yards and 2 TD’s.

Dantzler was drafted in the third round...

METAIRIE, La. — No doubt a two-touchdown performance – following the loss of Jamaal Williams – in the Saints' 20-17 win over the Panthers on Monday led New Orleans to signing running back Tony Jones Jr. to the active roster from the practice squad on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, head coach Dennis Allen told reporters Williams would "miss some time" due to the hamstring injury he suffered in the first half against Carolina.

With Williams out and Alvin Kamara still serving the final week of a three-game suspension, the Saints may also look for the return of rookie Kendre Miller, who Allen said...

Saints assistant GM Jeff Ireland spotted scouting NFL prospects at Florida State

This feels noteworthy. The Tallahassee Democrat’s Ehsan Kassim reported last week that New Orleans Saints college scouting director Jeff Ireland was in attendance at one of Florida State’s practices before their road game at Boston College (which they narrowly won 31-29). NFL scouts are on the road often this time of year, but it’s interesting to see an assistant general manager taking such a hands-on approach.

But FSU makes sense as somewhere to go looking for talent. Playmaking defensive end Jared Verse is a top-ten prospect (maybe top-five) in the 2024 draft class, and his teammate...
