Williams, who coached both Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams, is expected to join the Saints' staff as their WR coach.

By Gerard Angelo Samillano - ClutchPoints

The New Orleans Saints are looking for change after their disappointing 2023 season. Their defense remained solid for the most part, but their offense… yikes. Between Pete Carmichael's dubious play-calling and Derek Carr's inconsistency, New Orleans struggled to get things going on offense. Because of that, the team failed to make it to the playoffs yet again.

The Saints already started their retooling after releasing Carmichael. They are hiring San Francisco 49ers passing game coordinator Klint Kubiak to be their new offensive coordinator. Now, they're adding a new face to their offensive coaching staff by hiring Baltimore Ravens assistant coach Keith Williams, per Nick Underhill.

“The Saints have hired Keith Williams to be their receivers coach, per source. It is a two-year deal. Williams last served as the assistant receivers coach in Baltimore.“ ...

New Orleans Saints head coach Dennis Allen made an appearance on NFL Network discussing how the hiring of Klint Kubiak impacts draft strategies, where he shared one interesting points on the team’s quarterback situatio.

Allen said they’re sitting down with scouts discussing, “this is what we’re looking for at the quarterback position” followed by the same at offensive tackle and wide receiver. They’ll take a look at all of the positions eventually but of course naming quarterback first caught the ear of Saints fans. It’s the type of comment that could mean nothing or absolutely...

With the start of the new league year just under a month away, I’ve decided to put together a list of five pending free agents that the New Orleans Saints might look to target in free agency.

*Most of the players that I chose were based on a combination of need and scheme fit all together.

Without further ado, in no order, here’s a look at those players:

I know many of you are probably saying no way the Saints can afford him but that has never been an issue for them if they want a guy bad enough. Hunter who just turned 29, ripped off a career year with the Minnesota Vikings last season...

Saints free agent report card: Was Khalen Saunders a good defensive signing?

The New Orleans Saints retooled their defensive line last season, replacing most of the players that were roster in 2022. They lost Shy Tuttle and David Onyemata to big contracts within the NFC South with other players leaving the rotation like Kentavius Street, but were they able to replace them with some other nice players on the inside.

One of the players they brought in was former Kansas City Chiefs nose tackle Khalen Saunders. Saunders became an immediate fan favorite due to his athletic ceiling made apparent by his viral front-flip ability.

We’ve covered the biggest names in the New Orleans Saints upcoming free agency class in Michael Thomas, Jameis Winston and Andrus Peat. Now, it’s time to start taking a look at the depth pieces that the Saints will either be looking to bring back or replace for a better value.

The Saints drafted Zack Baun in the third round of the 2020 NFL draft. Now it’s time to figure out if the team should invest in a second contract for the linebacker. He finally started to carve out a role in the defense for himself towards the end of his fourth season, but was it enough to warrant bringing him back...

The New Orleans Saints failed to meet expectations in 2023, and CBS Sports analyst Jeff Kerr believes they’re in line to take an even farther step back next season. This is complete 180 from the spirits locally. Many local fans seem more optimistic after the hiring of Klint Kubiak. Kerr is looking higher than Kubiak and right at Dennis Allen.

Questions and doubt about Allen won’t subside until the season begins. This isn’t a roster problem in Kerr’s eyes. Honestly, it’s hard to disagree with his reason for hesitancy.

It seemed the Saints had a quality roster to be better than they were...

The New Orleans Saints have spread themselves pretty thin when it comes to draft picks in the 2024 NFL Draft. They have just five picks at the moment (before any compensatory picks have been given out) with only two coming in the first four rounds. Suffice it to say, the Saints are going to need to hit a home run on their first two selections.

There are quite a few positions of need on this team. We’ve already taken a look at edge rushers and offensive tackles the Saints could look to add in the draft, but today, we’re going to look at some defensive tackle options.

The New Orleans Saints ended last season with a 9-8 record with an easy schedule. Obviously, the team has a lot of room to improve. The first step was adding Klint Kubiak as offensive coordinator. His addition should help New Orleans win with scheme as well as talent instead of relying strictly on the players.

There need to be improvements to the roster as well. There is a lot of uncertainty along the offensive line at a couple of positions. That is the paramount concern as it has the ability to cripple the offense. What are the other biggest positions of need?

A franchise tag is a unique kind of one-year contract that only exists in the NFL. A franchise tag allows a team to select a player that is up for unrestricted free agency and lock them in to a non-negotiated salary for the upcoming season. Teams are only allowed to use the franchise tag once per off season.

Since its creation in the 1993 Collective Bargaining Agreement, the New Orleans Saints have only used the franchise tag five times. Here is a look at all five of the Saints previous franchise tag uses.

In 2004, the Saints tagged DE Darren Howard, and he played the 2004 season on a...

We’re still a ways out from the NFL setting the salary cap for 2024 — it’s expected to be confirmed during or after the league’s Scouting Combine in Indianapolis next week — but the early murmurs are positive for teams riding tight against the spending limit like the New Orleans Saints.

Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio shares that one source believes the cap will fall “closer to $250 million” than the previously-expected $243 million. Whether or not Florio’s information is accurate, there is a sentiment around the league that this year’s salary cap will rise further than anticipated...

We all know the college football landscape is about to change dramatically. It’s already begun to shift with the new era of NIL and the transfer portal, but now, the four team College Football Playoff is set to expand to 12 teams in 2024-25.

Originally, the plan was for the playoff to be set up in what was referred to as a 6-6 format. The six highest ranking conference champions would receive automatic bids, and then the next six highest ranking teams would also receive an at large bid.

However, with conference realignment really coming into effect this season and the Pac-12 dying out...
