Where are Cardinals, Chargers, other potential Sean Payton suitors picking in 2023 draft?

Week 12 is in the books and the 2023 NFL draft order projections have updated, so it’s as good a time as any to speculate on which teams might be in the hunt for Sean Payton — and what the New Orleans Saints could gain should he move on to a new team in a few months.

But let’s start with the Saints. They traded their 2023 first round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles so they could get another first rounder in 2022 (which became left tackle Trevor Penning), and right now that draft choice is projected to fall at No. 6 overall. That gives the Super Bowl-contender Eagles a highly valuable draft pick which the Saints could dearly use.

The good news is the Saints could end up with a high first rounder of their own should Payton be traded to a new team in 2023. Some franchises have already been linked to his interests, and others make sense as long-shot suitors, so let’s take a look at where each of them are slotted in: ...

NEW ORLEANS — The Saints are moving, albeit slightly, in the right direction on the injury front.

Three players- running back Mark Ingram (foot), tackle Ryan Ramczyk, and guard Josh Andrews (ankle)- were full participants in Friday's practice after the trio were limited on Thursday. The Saints have one more practice session remaining, on Saturday, ahead of Monday's game in Tampa.

There was some positive injury news on Friday’s New Orleans Saints injury report, with three players upgraded to full participation after being limited on Thursday: center Josh Andrews (ankle), running back Mark Ingram II (foot), and right tackle Ryan Ramczyk (rest). But there were still four limited participants (including linebacker Pete Werner and cornerback Marshon Lattimore) as well as eight others held out of action while on the mend or dealing with illnesses.

Meanwhile, the Buccaneers gave rest days to several past-their-prime veterans like quarterback Tom Brady, wide receiver...

Jeff Duncan: What is and isn't an NFL catch? Nobody seems to know, including NFL officials

In the New Orleans’ loss to the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Chris Olave caught what appeared-to-be a 30-yard pass from Taysom Hill in the second quarter.

It was a huge play at the time. The Saints trailed 3-0 and would have had a first-and-goal at the 49ers’ 8-yard line. However, the play was subsequently overturned by replay officials in New York after 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan challenged the call.

During the FOX broadcast of the game, Dean Blandino, the NFL’s former vice president of officiating, agreed with the overturn, saying that Olave failed to “perform an act common to the game”...

Saints Passing Attack Seeks Better Performance Against Buccaneers Defense

In the 2021 Divisional Playoffs, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pushed QB Drew Brees into retirement with three interceptions in a 30-20 win. They'd knock out his replacement, former Bucs QB Jameis Winston, for the 2021 season in Week 8. Winston returned in 2022, only for Tampa Bay to intercept him three times and record six sacks in a 20-10 Week 2 win.

Now it's Andy Dalton's turn.

The 35-year-old Dalton gets his 10th straight start for the 4-8 Saints as they go into Tampa Bay to take on the 5-6 Buccaneers on Monday night. He'll lead a 15th ranked offense that averages 347 yards per outing but...

Let’s start with the good news. The New Orleans Saints are wearing their fan-favorite “Color Rush” alternate jerseys in Monday night’s game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which are always a welcome sight — the gold detailing and black trim stand out well on the white uniforms, making for one of the best looks you’ll find around the NFL.

Now the bad news, which we already knew about: the Saints are also wearing their alternate black helmets for this game, using the same lids-uniforms combo that they debuted in Week 4’s game with the Minnesota Vikings earlier this year.

It’s not your regular Friday Dattitude, as the focus of the Saints shifts to LSU playing No. 1 Georgia in the SEC championship game on Saturday and Tulane vs. Central Florida in the American Athletic Conference title game at Yulman Stadium.

How do the Tigers matchup against the Bulldogs? Well, who better to answer that question the LSU sideline reporter Gordy Rush, who joins Dattitude (Ep. 122) for the first time. How will Jayden Daniels hold up with his injury, and will the Tigers’ offensive line be able to withstand the fierce Georgia rush? Also, how remarkable a job has Coach Brian...

No, Drew Brees was not struck by lightning

NEW ORLEANS — Drew Brees was not struck by lightning while filming a promotional video in Venezuela, despite a video posted online. The video was shared by several prominent sports personalities and sports journalists before being debunked as a "spoof."

Earlier this week, Brees shared on Twitter that he was "flying to a top-secret location" to film a promotional video for Pointsbet Sportsbook, a company which he owns a stake and serves as a brand ambassador.

The video shows the former New Orleans Saints quarterback getting ready for a video shoot while the skies are erupting with...

Sunday’s biggest game in the NFC playoff picture is the Commanders against the Giants, with Washington surging and New York fading.

Early in the season the Giants looked like this year’s surprise playoff team, while the Commanders looked like they were going nowhere fast. But the Giants have collapsed just as the Commanders have turned this around, and on Sunday Washington has a chance to leapfrog New York in the playoff race.

Here’s how the playoff picture looks heading into Sunday’s games.

Drew Brees jokes 'The lightning must’ve thought I was wearing a Falcons jersey'

Take a lap, Drew Brees. The former New Orleans Saints quarterback sent fans into an uproar after a video hoax went viral alleging he had been struck by lightning while filming a promotional ad in Venezuela. He circled back after the social media buzz erupted to put them at rest, saying on Instagram that he’s fine and joking that “The lightning must’ve thought I was wearing a Falcons jersey.”

Look, as zingers go, that’s a good one. It doesn’t make up for a dumb marketing stunt that upset a lot of people, but Brees deserves a hat tip for it. The sponsor in question, PointsBet Sportsbook...

The last four times New Orleans has been shut out, it has been by the San Francisco 49ers, and this past week was no different. Very few teams vacillate as crazily from week to week as New Orleans. The Saints' offense has struggled for the past three weeks.

It isn't easy to anticipate the team's performance, but shockingly, New Orleans is still in a post-season race. The team is preparing to face Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.

Five questions before Week 13

The New Orleans Saints laid an egg last Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. Even more frustrating was the fact that they probably should've won the game if they could find the endzone on the final two drives that ended on the goal line. That makes this week's game a critical make-or-break point for the Saints.

Defensively, the New Orleans Saints played their very best game of the season in my opinion against a very dynamic Niners offense. Only to get “zero” help from their offense. It is still a great sign for the defense going forward and they only look to progress getting maybe their most important player back on that side of the ball. Marshon Lattimore looks to be back for next week's game as he finally was able to practice last week since dealing with a kidney/rib injury.

A perfect gift for Mike Evans in December... ;)

Come on, man. The New Orleans Saints fanbase rushed into concern when a video allegedly showing Drew Brees being struck by lightning while filming a commercial went viral on social media, but multiple local reports from New Orleans outed the marketing stunt as a forgery.

That news prompted Saints fans and observers on Twitter to shift gears, first in relief for Brees’ health, and then towards getting off jokes about what a boneheaded decision this was by his sponsor. Here’s what they’re saying after the truth came out:

A video making the rounds on social media showing New Orleans Saints legend Drew Brees getting hit by lightning is a publicity stunt, The Times-Picayune has confirmed.

The shaky video, which was posted on Twitter at midnight, portrays Brees in the process of filming a commercial, when suddenly a flash pops on the screen along with a clap of thunder.

The company apparently behind the video clip released a statement saying that it was "aware of media coverage" surrounding the incident, and that it "will continue to monitor events through the coming hours."
