There are things you don’t do, like choosing to tug Superman’s cape or pull the mask off the Lone Ranger. You also don’t challenge New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan to a race.

That’s what a few children and young teens discovered at an event ahead of the 2020 Pro Bowl when they lined up for a sprint against the 6-foot-4, 287-pound sack artist. Some NFL stars would take the opportunity to let the kids enjoy the spotlight for a moment by throwing the race. But Jordan treated it like a competition.

At least he gave them a second’s head start. But by the time Jordan burst out of his stance, it was no contest, leaving all three of his challengers in the dust.

2019 Saints Season in Review: Quarterback Taysom Hill

We continue our season reviews at Saints Wire with New Orleans Saints third-string quarterback and pending restricted free agent, Taysom Hill. In 2019, Hill saw an expanded role on the offense from his 2018 production, and continued to be a stalwart on the special teams unit.

Hill quickly gained with the fan base in 2018 when he was utilized in a utility-type role, rather than his conventional position. In 2019, that role became even more prominent earning him the nickname of “Swiss Army Knife”.

Level of play in 2019


Hill cannot be judged solely on his quarterbacking skills in 2019. If that’s the case, his 105 passing yards seem quite lackluster. Instead, what is most impressive are his receiving touchdowns on the season. His seven receiving touchdowns (including the playoffs) put him ahead of players such as Julio Jones, Julian Edelman, and Zach Ertz. It also proved that he became a legitimate weapon for Drew Brees to use on the offense.

Sometimes you’re dealt a tough hand, but you still have to make it work. That’s what the New Orleans Saints did in the 2019 NFL Draft, lacking picks in the first, third, and fourth rounds, thanks to some smart decisions and crafty trades.

In a collaboration from ESPN and Pro Football Focus, the Saints rookie class was ranked fifth-best in the NFL. Not bad for a team lacking so much draft capital:

How much longer will the Saints championship window remain open?

By Bob Rose | Sports Illustrated

The New Orleans Saints won their first Super Bowl ten years ago next month in the site of this year’s game, Miami, Florida, and Super Bowl LIV. The Saints, like 29 other National Football League teams, will watch this year’s game from the stands or their televisions. Many favored New Orleans to be the NFC representative in this year’s big game. Despite a 13-3 regular-season record though, their season came crumbling to an end with a 26-20 overtime home loss to the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the postseason.

Only punter Thomas Morstead and quarterback Drew Brees, the game’s M.V.P., remain from that Super Bowl XLIV championship team that defeated the Indianapolis Colts 31-17 on February 7, 2010. In the decade since New Orleans has won four division titles and made the playoffs six times. Despite that success and a 100-54 regular-season record, we will remember the decade more for the Saints postseason shortcomings.

NFL’s Saints seek to shield PR help to church in sex crisis

By Jim Mustian | Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Saints are going to court to keep the public from seeing hundreds of emails that allegedly show team executives doing public relations damage control for the area’s Roman Catholic archdiocese to help it contain the fallout from a burgeoning sexual abuse crisis.

Attorneys for about two dozen men suing the church say in court filings that the 276 documents they obtained through discovery show that the NFL team, whose owner is devoutly Catholic, aided the Archdiocese of New Orleans in its “pattern and practice of concealing its crimes.”

“Obviously, the Saints should not be in the business of assisting the Archdiocese, and the Saints’ public relations team is not in the business of managing the public relations of criminals engaged in pedophilia,” the attorneys wrote in a court filing. “The Saints realize that if the documents at issue are made public, this professional sports organization also will be smearing itself.”

The Saints’ Trey Hendrickson took a while to get going this season due to a lingering neck injury, but in his third season, the young defensive end had his best season to date as a rotational pass rusher. While his role was still fairly niche, Hendrickson logged 4.5 sacks and a forced fumble for the Saints, while looking generally more disruptive while he was in the game.

Hendrickson played a career-high 38 percent of defensive snaps for the Saints last season...
