Landry is the second high-profile free agent to sign with New Orleans this month

By Bryan DeArdo

The New Orleans Saints kicked off the month of May by signing free agent safety Tyrann Mathieu. The Saints are now signing five-time Pro Bowl receiver Jarvis Landry to a one-year deal that is worth up to $6 million, according to NFL Media. Landry broke the news on social media on Friday afternoon.

Landry visited the Saints prior to the 2022 NFL Draft. New Orleans spent their first of two first-round picks on former Ohio State receiver Chris Olave. The Saints have further bolstered their receiving corps with the acquisition of Landry, a Pro Bowl performer during his time with the Miami Dolphins and Cleveland Browns.

Landry, 29, was a Pro Bowler in three of his four seasons with Miami while helping the Dolphins capture a playoff berth in 2016. The former LSU Tiger was instrumental in the Browns' turnaround upon coming to Cleveland in 2018. A two-time Pro Bowler with the Browns, Landry's impact on the field and in the locker room helped Cleveland end the franchise's 18-year playoff drought three years after the franchise endured an 0-16 regular season. The sure-handed receiver caught touchdowns in both of the Browns' games during the 2020 postseason. ...

Drew Brees added more speculation about his future with a social media post to address his status at NBC. On Sunday afternoon, a report from Andrew Marchand mentioned Brees' was done after one year with NBC.

Later, Brees called a reverse on the play and threw the media and his critics off course -- and a little shade on the way. It sort of feels like a Sean Payton-type of play call with the sarcasm and wit.

2022 is already starting to be plenty of fun in the Big Easy and NFL. Brees mentioning, "I may play football again" closely parallels Sean Payton's "might be coaching again at some...

Drew Brees will not return to NBC after just one season as a studio and game analyst, The New York Post reported Sunday.

Brees took to social media Sunday evening in response to the report, stating he has yet to make an decision on his future with the network. He also said he may play football again, presumably tongue-in-cheek.


The Saints legendary quarterback served as game analyst with Mike Tirico on Notre Dame home games with NBC Sports during the 2021 season, his first since retiring from the NFL. When the two paired up to call the Raiders-Bengals Wild Card matchup, the review were...

When you think about it, the 2021 season for the Saints was pretty amazing. New Orleans averaged only 21.4 points a game but still won nine of them.

What could the Saints do with another outstanding defensive season but also a strong offense to go along with it?

I believe we are fixing to find out.

The Saints have addressed a ton of needs on that side the ball.

They needed speed on the outside so they traded twice to get up in the first round to draft wideout Chris Olave.

In a one hour glimpse at practice Saturday, Olave was smooth and fast. It is hard to imagine him not being a key...

Well that escalated quickly.

Former New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and NBC have reportedly parted ways one year into their contract:

The Saints weren’t lacking for news with the team formally announcing and finalizing the contract for WR Jarvis Landry earlier this afternoon. When the team posted a portion of Landry’s first press conference as a member of the Saints, Brees commented on Instagram, “Man..signing [Jarvis Landry] and [Tyrann Mathieu] makes me want to come back and play again!!! Great additions…leaders and players!”

Only minutes later, Brees took to Twitter to...

It started with a report that he’s leaving NBC. It escalated into something much more significant.

Following a report from Andrew Marchand of the New York Post that future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees will be leaving NBC, Brees said this on Twitter: “Despite speculation from media about my future this fall, I’m currently undecided. I may work for NBC, I may play football again, I may focus on business and philanthropy, I may train for the pickleball tour, senior golf tour, coach my kids or all of the above. I’ll let you know.”

In fairness to Marchand, he wasn’t speculating. He was...

Andrew Marchand reports that New Orleans Saints' legendary quarterback, Drew Bees, and NBC Sports have agreed to end their relationship after one year. Brees did not want to continue his role as an in-studio analyst with "Football Night in America" and preferred to call NFL games.

Brees, 43, signed a lucrative deal with NBC after announcing his NFL retirement in 2020. Joining the network was believed to be his next step in seceding longtime color analyst Cris Collingsworth in the booth for Sunday Night Football.

Unfortunately, critics panned Brees' performance next to play-by-play...

Jarvis Landry's eyes kept drifting toward his reflection.

There he sat, in the middle of a Zoom press conference, and he couldn't help but occasionally stare at the fleur-de-lis logo on his new hat for his new team, his home state's New Orleans Saints.

"It's a special time," Landry said. "As a kid growing up, being from Louisiana, you always want to play for your hometown team."

For Landry — a star forged in St. James Parish at Lutcher and then upriver at LSU — this free agency process was stressful.

He had been with the Cleveland Browns since 2018 but the relationship between the two...

NEW ORLEANS — The New York Post is reporting that former Saints quarterback Drew Brees is out at NBC after just one season.

The report says that the parting was mutual with Brees hoping to do more work in the booth and the network apparently souring on Brees, who had been seen as a possible successor to Cris Collingsworth in the booth.

The move comes during a period of time that has seen a huge shakeup in the broadcast booth and for network pre and post-game shows. Amazon has come into the equation and several analysts have moved from one network to another.

Former Saints quarterback Drew Brees will not be an analyst for NBC next season after he and the television network have parted ways, reports say.

The star quarterback joined the network after retiring from the NFL in 2021.

The New York Post reported that the decision was mutual as Brees preferred calling games to studio work and NBC 'soured' on Brees' potential to take over as the "Sunday Night Football" broadcast host.

K.J. Costello isn’t sure exactly how many times he’s watched it.

All he knows is it’s been a lot.

A whole lot.

“Maybe 100 times,” Costello estimated.

The date was Sept. 26, 2020.

Costello was making his debut at quarterback for Mississippi State after transferring from Stanford.

The setting was Baton Rouge in the most intimidating stadium in all of college football against an LSU team just 8 months removed from one of the most dominant runs to a national championship ever.

Costello torched LSU’s defense for 623 yards that day, setting an SEC record that very well could be around for...

Marshon Lattimore and Paulson Adebo formed a shutdown duo of cornerbacks for the New Orleans Saints in 2021. Lattimore is one of the NFL's best, able to lock up an opponent’s best receiver one-on-one and eliminate them from the game.

Adebo was a third-round pick last year that was a perfect complement. He flashed Pro Bowl potential with his ball skills and coverage ability.

Bradley Roby was acquired with an early season trade. His snaps were limited because of Adebo's development, but Roby is a starting quality corner that provides outstanding depth against deeper wide receiver units...

The New Orleans offensive skill positions are developing into one of the NFL's best. Before September, head coach Dennis Allen will evaluate three positions on offense that have question marks ahead of fielding a 53-man roster.

Andrus Peat's injury history and Cesar Ruiz's sporadic play are concerns at the guard position.

Peat restructured his 5-year, $57.5M contract to create $8M in cap space for the Saints in 2022. Also, New Orleans converted $9.73M of Peat's salary into a fully guaranteed roster bonus. Peat, 28, is the Saints' 2015 first-round draft pick and performed well with former...

The New Orleans Saints open their 2022 regular season against the Atlanta Falcons. Between now and then, plenty of roster spots will be up for grabs.

Chris Olave may one day take over as the Saints’ No. 1 receiver. For now, that role belongs to Michael Thomas, and Thomas doesn’t feel threatened by the first-round draft choice.

Instead, Thomas has become a mentor for Olave.

The veteran receiver was one of the first players to welcome the 11th overall choice to New Orleans, FaceTiming with Olave shortly after the draft. It was during the call that Thomas invited Olave to work out with him as both train in Southern California during the offseason.

“I couldn’t turn that down,” Olave said, via Mike Triplett of ESPN.

METAIRIE, La. -- Chris Olave's first day of New Orleans Saints rookie camp technically was Friday. The 11th overall pick in the NFL draft, however, has already spent most of the past two weeks getting familiar with his new running mate, Michael Thomas, in their shared home base of Southern California.

Thomas welcomed the fellow former Ohio State receiver over FaceTime shortly after he was drafted -- and then invited Olave to come stay with him and work out.

C.J. Holmes got a text message Saturday morning from his college coach, arguably the greatest cornerback to ever play football.

The message from Deion Sanders was a simple one:

“Work.”

Sanders probably won’t have to worry about that with Holmes, the former Jackson State cornerback now getting a shot to play in his hometown for the team he grew up rooting for.

Hard work is what got him this far in the first place.

Holmes is one of the 41 players getting a tryout shot with the New Orleans Saints during the team’s rookie minicamp.

So who could blame the Lusher High graduate from Uptown...
