GREEN BAY — Sean Payton loves the story so much that, when given the opportunity to not have to retell it, the New Orleans Saints longtime coach still insisted on regaling his audience with the epic tale of how he ended up with Taysom Hill on his roster.

Hill, of course, has developed into one of the NFL’s most intriguing multi-dimensional weapons — the kind of versatile player who, frankly, would fit in well with the Green Bay Packers, the team that let him go at the end of training camp in 2017 and set the stage for his emergence in The Big Easy.

“There are not too many Taysom Hill-type players out there,” said Packers coach Matt LaFleur, who wasn’t with the team back when Hill was an oft-injured, 27-year-old undrafted rookie quarterback from BYU. “Those are guys that are just tough to find — a guy who can go in there and play special teams, or you can line up him really anywhere on the offensive side of the ball, whether it’s quarterback, running back, tight end, fullback, receiver.

“They’re a rarity, man. And if you definitely have a guy like that, that is an added luxury. I think it puts a lot of stress and a lot of strain on the defensive staff trying to prepare for somebody like that.”

Despite not practicing at any point this past week, there’s still a chance -- albeit a small one -- that the Green Bay Packers will have their star wide receiver in the lineup Sunday night.

Davante Adams will have up until inactives are announced for the inter-conference clash against the New Orleans Saints to determine whether or not he’s healthy enough to play, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Report: Michael Thomas eyes a Week Four return

  • News source: Mike Florio
  • Replies: 0
The Saints have the best receiver in football on their roster. They currently don’t have him on the field. That could change next week.

Michael Thomas currently is targeting a Week Four return to action, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com.

Thomas reportedly was “moving really well” on Friday and “looked good” as he recovers from a high ankle sprain suffered late in a Week One win over the Buccaneers. There is, however, a real difference between the force applied when making cuts on an ankle during a game and the movements of a workout.

The fact that the Saints didn’t place Thomas on...

NFL hopes for 100 percent compliance with mask rule this weekend

With five coaches fined $100,000 and their teams fined $250,000 for failure to wear masks in Week Two, the NFL hopes the message has been received.

Soon, we’ll find out whether that’s the case.

Week Three began with Dolphins coach Brian Flores and Jaguars coach Doug Marrone complying with the mask requirement. The balance of the Week Three games begin to unfold at 1:00 p.m. ET, with two of the five coaches who were punished last week (Kyle Shanahan of the 49ers and Jon Gruden of the Raiders) on the sideline.

As a league source explained it to PFT, the powers-that-be hope there will be...

The Saints face the Packers in an incredibly important early-season showdown. The Saints looked uninspired and lethargic last Monday Night but they have the chance to quickly turn things around where they shine brightest, in the Superdome, on Sunday Night Football, where they have been simply excellent against Aaron Rodgers. This is certainly a game both teams have had circled on their calendars since the schedule was released. Here’s to a Saints win over Green Bay tonight! Who Dat!

Saints made four roster moves on Saturday

With the absence of wide receiver Michael Thomas the Saints have promoted wide receiver Bennie Fowler to the active roster. Fowler was a favorite of QB Drew Brees in camp who spoke highly of him. This is probably why he made the practice squad. The practice squad was increased to 16 players this year in response to Covid-19. Defensive end Margus Hunt was also moved to the active roster. Hunt blocked a fieldgoal late in the first half of the game against the buccaneers.

Center/guard Will Clapp was waived and running back Ty Montgomery was sent to injured reserve. Ty Montgomery first...

What went wrong for the Saints passing game Monday & how they can fix it

  • News source: Andrew_Bell

There’s a little bit more hope for the New Orleans Saints passing attack to get going as they gear up to face the Green Packers on Sunday Night Football, after taking a look at every passing snap from Monday night.

The Monday Night Football broadcast footage made Drew Brees look a lot worse than the All-22 did against the Raiders.

Not that he was great by any means, but the 41-year-old quarterback had a few, dare-I-say, encouraging plays that showed off his anticipation and ability to look off defenders. But the chemistry with the receiver just wasn’t there.

Take this one for example...

How the Saints defensive line rotations performed in week two

It was another busy day along the New Orleans Saints defensive line. Didn’t help that the Las Vegas Raiders held the ball for 76 offensive plays per ESPN. New Orleans had some success along the line in the first quarter coming up with three sacks in the first 15 minutes. Unfortunately though, no more sacks after that.

Before we dig in, you can go and review vocabulary, gap assignments, and defensive line techniques in last week’s piece.

One of the more remarkable things about Monday night’s gameplan in the trenches was the variety of looks they gave. Last week, we broke down...

Davante Adams doubtful, but still hoping to play tonight

Packers receiver Davante Adams is still hoping to play tonight against the Saints.

Although Adams is still officially listed as doubtful with a hamstring injury, he wants to play and he’ll be given every opportunity to show he can go in pregame warmups, according to multiple reports.

Adams did make the trip to New Orleans, which he wouldn’t have done if there were no chance of him playing, so the Packers are holding out hope.

Adams is the Packers’ leading receiver with 17 catches for 192 yards and two touchdowns this season. He was also the Packers’ leading receiver last season, but the...

New Orleans Saints star wide receiver Michael Thomas, who will miss his second straight game Sunday night with a high ankle sprain, was "moving really well" during Friday's workout and wants to play in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions, a league source told ESPN.

Thomas' availability ultimately will hinge on whether he is cleared by doctors, but the record-setting receiver "looked good" this weekend, according to the source.

Thomas has not practiced since he suffered the ankle injury during the final minutes of New Orleans' Week 1 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Can Saints offense get back on track? Who are Green Bay's non-QB stars? 3 things to watch for

At least the New Orleans Saints didn’t have to wait as long as usual to get the bad taste out of their mouths.

Last week was a tough one for the Saints, losing 34-24 to the Las Vegas Raiders in a nationally televised game. Their punishment is to play a surging Green Bay Packers team after a shortened week of preparation in another prime time game.

But history is working on the Saints side. Since the start of the 2010 season, New Orleans has gone 19-3 in prime time games at the Superdome, and they’ve won five straight. The Saints also haven’t lost back-to-back regular-season games since...

'How does a kid like this get cut?' Saints' Taysom Hill faces Packers team that let him go

The 2017 Green Bay Packers had begun trimming their roster to 53 players and Max McCaffrey didn’t make the cut, so he started exchanging goodbyes.

The wide receiver was in good spirits, though, after signing to the New Orleans Saints’ practice squad. As he continued to finish up his business in the locker room, one more person walked in. And McCaffrey had to thank him, because without this rookie quarterback, McCaffrey himself might not have found a landing spot.

“We start talking like, ‘Taysom, it’s been awesome, man. I’m heading out to New Orleans,’” McCaffrey said. “He’s like, ‘Oh...
