Ryan Ramczyk's season is over.

By John Hendrix - Saints News Network | SI

After some further digging into the NFL rules, Saints right tackle Ryan Ramczyk's season is over after being placed on the Reserve/PUP list. The reason is due to him being a vested veteran and the timing prior to the final roster reduction. The initial belief of Ramczyk missing the first four games was for players placed on that list at final roster reductions.

Ramczyk's owed a considerable amount of money from his five-year contract extension in 2021. He restructured back in early May to help free up some space for the Saints this year, but the reality is next year's cap hit for him is just above $29 million (11.2% of the cap) and offers little savings compared to dead money. 2026 is a little easier, and it'll be interesting to see how New Orleans navigates the books on this one. ...

Ryan Ramczyk won't play football in 2024, NFL future in doubt

We received the clearest indication yet that Ryan Ramczyk has already played his last down of pro football on Thursday. The New Orleans Saints placed their former All-Pro right tackle on the reserve/physically unable to perform (PUP) list, which carries an important distinction from the active/PUP list other players were designated to.

As observed by NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Ramczyk is a vested veteran (someone who has earned earned three or more credited seasons), and those vested veterans who have been placed on the reserve/PUP list before roster cuts on Aug. 27 are ineligible to play...

The wait is over. We’ve reached the unofficial start of the 2024 NFL season as training camps kick off around the league.

There will be plenty of roster battles to monitor throughout the summer, whether it’s starting jobs up for grabs or battles further down the depth chart. There are teams looking to fill roster holes after key departures and players looking to earn starting jobs and roster spots. But there are some battles that should garner more attention than others.

Our NFL Wire editors identified the top position battle to monitor for each team during training camp.

Demario Davis ranked a top-50 player by Pro Football Network

Pro Football Network released their top-100 players of 2024 list, and New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis cracked the top half of that list.

The veteran was the third linebacker on the list only behind San Francisco 49er Fred Warner and Baltimore Ravens Roquan Smith. This is extremely high praise for the veteran. If you isolate it by position, Davis would rank higher on this list than ESPN’s recent top-10 rankings. Here’s why PFN’s Dallas Robinson is so high on him:

This is the same skillset coaches around the league have praised Davis for cultivating. For the second year in a...

Derek Carr says he was nearly a New York Jet in 2023

In the 2023 offseason, the New Orleans Saints and New York Jets both needed a quarterback, and both wanted Derek Carr.

Carr clearly chose to come to the Crescent City, and he recalled a past conversation with Jets coach Robert Saleh during an appearance on the “Pardon My Take” podcast. He says Saleh told Carr the Jets would love to have him. Carr considered it but decided it wasn’t the right time to make a decision, because he still had to visit multiple other teams.

It should come as no surprise Carr was sought after; it was reported at the time the Jets were in on him. He was the top...

Pro Football Network named Demario Davis the 45th best player in the National Football League as the New Orleans Saints’ defensive leader looks to have another strong season.

The three-time All-Pro was placed on the PUP list on Thursday, meaning that he will miss the entire season for the Saints.

Johnathan Abram came in for the 2023 season and made some big plays in the back end, but Jordan Howden has been equally impressive. Who will prevail and take that safety spot?

Rashid Shaheed's 51-yard game-winning catch is the Saints Play of the Day

We’re now at 51 days until the New Orleans Saints season opener, which makes Rashid Shaheed’s 51-yard game sealing reception against the Indianapolis Colts our Saints Play of the Day. Shaheed solidified a career day with his third and final catch, ultimately hauling in three passes (all of which went over 40 yards) for 151 yards and a touchdown. A little reminiscent of Randy Moss’s Thanksgiving Day performance back in 1998.

At the time of this play, the Saints were up by eight points, facing a critical 3rd-and-13 with less than three minutes to go in regulation.

Shaheed came through with...

Countdown to Kickoff: Cesar Ruiz is the Saints Player of Day 51

We are now at 51 days until the start of the New Orleans Saints’ regular season, which makes today’s Saints Player of the Day: Cesar Ruiz. Will the former first-round pick ascend his way to the top in Year 5?

Ruiz entered the league as one of the more polished prospects in his draft class. As a three-year starter for Michigan and a former number-one overall recruit at his position, Ruiz felt as close to a sure thing as you can get. When the Saints selected Ruiz in the first round of the 2020 NFL draft, the idea for the team was to play Ruiz at the guard position next to Pro Bowl center...

51 days until Saints season opener: Every player to wear No. 51

  • News source: lukeloffredo

Our countdown to the start of the New Orleans Saints’ 2024 season continues with Day 51. Let’s take a look at every single player to every take a snap in the corresponding jersey number.

The No. 51 is one of the more iconic jersey numbers in team history. A couple of foundational pieces of this Saints organization come to mind when we hear this number. Those two being linebackers Jonathan Vilma and Sam Mills. Vilma spent six seasons with the Saints after being traded by his former team the New York Jets. Vilma served as a pivotal piece in the franchises’ revival leading one of the most opportunistic defenses in the league during his time. Vilma would be selected to two Pro Bowls (2009, 2010) with the Saints while totaling 439 tackles, 8 sacks, 6 interceptions and a touchdown. Sam Mills on the other hand, set the bar high for Vilma in his nine seasons with the Saints.

The Hall of Fame linebacker played the game much bigger than his 5-foot-9 stature. Mills was an integral part of the Saints dominant defenses in the early 90s. He, Rickey Jackson, Pat Swilling and Vaughan Johnson came together to form the NFL’s most disruptive linebacker corps, the “Dome Patrol.” As a group they combined for 19 Pro Bowls while with the team including the 1992 Pro Bowl where all four of them were selected. Mills carried four of those Pro Bowls with the Saints and put up tremendous numbers to go along with them. By the end of his career with the Saints, Mills tallied 934 tackles, 10.5 sacks, 16 forced fumbles and 4 interceptions in 9 seasons. One heck of a career to say the least.

Here’s the full list of Saints players to use No. 51 from

METAIRIE, La. — The New Orleans Saints have placed right tackle Ryan Ramczyk on the reserve/physically unable to perform list that will cause him to miss at least the first four games of the upcoming regular season.

Ramczyk remained away from Saints headquarters throughout the offseason while attempting to rehabilitate from a procedure last winter that was meant to alleviate a knee injury that has lingered for more than a year, limiting his practice time during game weeks.

Saints coach Dennis Allen said during offseason workouts that it was unclear if Ramczyk would be available by the...

Just two days ago the New Orleans Saints placed rookie fifth-round pick Bub Means on the non-football injury list.

As of Thursday, he is now off of that list. The Saints announced that Means had been activated off the NFI list along with several other roster moves that the team made. Just a couple days ago, Nick Underhill at NOF Network reported that Means’ injury “wasn’t serious” and that he would be “good to go quickly.” Here’s proof of it.

The former Pitt Panther will be in competition for a spot at the back end of the wide receivers depth chart. With Chris Olave and Rashid Shaheed...
