'He's dove into the deep end of the pool with us. There's no toe in the water with him'

By - John DeShazier - New Orleans Saints

New Orleans Saints defensive end Chase Young isn't expected to be able to participate in upcoming OTAs but continues to progress from offseason neck surgery.

Young, an unrestricted free agent who was the No. 2 overall pick by Washington in 2020 and was named NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year that season, signed a one-year deal with New Orleans in March and has totaled 16.5 sacks, six forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 43 games, with 32 starts.

Young played in 12 of 33 regular-season games in 2021-22 after tearing the ACL and patella tendon in his right knee during Week 10 of 2021.

"Things are going well right now," Saints Coach Dennis Allen said on Monday, prior to participating in the annual Saints Hall of Fame Celebrity Golf Classic at Chateau Golf and Country Club. "I don't expect to see him out there on the practice field working any time soon. ...

While at the New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame Golf Tournament, head coach Dennis Allen said that he and Lattimore had a positive conversation and he is moving forward with the Saints.

The former Saints running back who broke out early in his career with the Arizona Cardinals has decided to walk away.

Allen also gave an update on his new defensive end’s health status heading into OTAs and minicamps.

New Orleans Saints game previews: Week 1 vs. Carolina Panthers

Our New Orleans Saints game previews kick off with Week 1’s opener against the Carolina Panthers. How much help does Bryce Young have? What’s different about the Panthers from the last time they crossed paths with the Saints? And how does this game impact the all-time series history between the two rivals?

Let’s start with the obvious. Neither of the two head coaches leading Carolina in 2023’s games against the Saints will be patrolling the opposite sideline this time — not after Frank Reich was fired at midseason and replaced by interim coach Chris Tabor. The Panthers recruited former...

Dennis Allen gives health update on DE Chase Young

New Orleans Saints head coach Dennis Allen gave an injury update on newly signed defensive end Chase Young. According to Allen, Young’s health is going in a positive direction, but he doesn't expect him to see the practice field anytime soon. Young has participated in walk-throughs during OTA’s and the team expects that to be his status until they reevaluate him before training camp.

When New Orleans signed Young, they were aware of his health and expected him to be out for the majority of the off-season.

The addition of Chase Young was the Saints’ big off-season signing and they’re...

If you tune into NFL Network on Tuesday, May 21, you’ll get Tyrann Mathieu’s picks for programing. The New Orleans Saints safety is kicking off the “Player’s Choice” series for 2024 where players around the NFL get the opportunity to curate which programs are shown throughout the day, starting at Noon CT/1 p.m. ET.

And as you might expect, much of Mathieu’s choices feature himself, telling his story in the world of pro football. But his roots run deep. Mathieu is leading off with a pair of NFL Films features “Born and Bred in New Orleans” and “The Mathieu’s.” After that he’s shifting...

ESPN picks a new team for former Saints All-Pro Michael Thomas

Where will Michael Thomas be playing football in 2024? The former New Orleans Saints All-Pro is still waiting to find the right fit as a free agent, along with a dozen of his teammates from last year’s Saints team. With the clock ticking down until training camp, it’s looking like a long summer might be ahead of him until he finds the right landing spot.

ESPN’s Matt Bowen matched some of the best remaining free agents with possible team fits ahead of training camp, and he has a clear pick for Thomas. Here’s why he argues the Dallas Cowboys should give Thomas a call:

It’s an interesting...

Saints attempted to re-sign Andrus Peat

New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis delivered some interesting updates to the media on Monday morning about star cornerback Marshon Lattimore and former Saints’ guard Andrus Peat.

It was announced that Peat, a free agent, would be joining the Las Vegas Raiders on May 13. It was initially assumed that the Saints chose to not pursue another contract with the former first-round pick.

According to Loomis, that was not the case.

Although Peat had his ups and downs in New Orleans, attempting to re-sign the veteran made sense. The Saints do not have a clear option for several...

New Orleans Saints salary cap update after signing most of their draft picks

The New Orleans Saints signed most of their draft picks after rookie minicamp earlier in May, so where do they stand against the salary cap? And what could change in the weeks ahead? How much can they spend to improve the team over the summer? Those are a couple of different questions, so let’s work on answering them one at a time.

Right now, Kool-Aid McKinstry is the Saints’ only unsigned draft pick. That isn’t unusual for second round picks (we’ve discussed this before; it’s a side effect of the new collective bargaining agreement), and he’ll likely sign before training camp at a...

PFF analyst grades Saints' offseason so far with a strong B+

NFL offseason grades don’t carry much value, but they are a good measuring stick for finding how different teams (and their offseason strategies) are being perceived. So how do the New Orleans Saints stack up against the rest of the NFC South? Their road to the playoffs runs through the division, and it’s worth keeping up with them to see how each squad compares.

Pro Football Focus analyst Trevor Sikkema graded the Saints’ offseason thus far with a B-plus, which was better than the Atlanta Falcons (C-minus) and Carolina Panthers (C-plus), but a little behind the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (A)...

Mickey Loomis says Saints made several attempts to re-sign Andrus Peat

Every NFL team hopes to draft good prospects and develop them into great pros, and to see them play out their careers in the same uniform — so it’s disappointing when that doesn’t end up as planned. That’s the place the New Orleans Saints found themselves when Andrus Peat, a three-time Pro Bowl alternate left guard, left in free agency to sign with the Las Vegas Raiders.

General manager Mickey Loomis spoke about Peat’s situation at the Saints Hall of Fame golf tournament on Monday. He says the Saints tried to retain Peat once his contract expired, but the two sides couldn’t reach a deal...

Cameron Jordan says 'it feels like we have to' beat Sean Payton's Broncos

You’d be hard-pressed to find a player in the New Orleans Saints locker room that Sean Payton had more respect for than Cameron Jordan. The team’s ironman defensive captain rarely missed a snap in a decade with Payton working as his head coach, and Payton’s decision to walk away from the team was as hard on Jordan as anyone else in the building.

But that doesn’t mean Jordan is taking it easy in a prime time matchup with Payton and his new Denver Broncos squad. The last thing he wants to see is Payton leaving New Orleans with one more win, this time as the visitor. He spoke about the...

PFF picks Rashid Shaheed as Saints' breakout candidate for 2024

Good NFL teams draft well, but great ones find diamonds in the rough as undrafted free agents. And that’s how the New Orleans Saints found Rashid Shaheed. The former Weber State wideout was not drafted while recovering from a knee injury, so the Saints gave him a shot — and he’s done nothing but beat expectations while climbing the depth chart year over year.

He certainly has fans at Pro Football Focus. PFF’s Bradley Locker identified breakout candidates for all 16 teams in the NFC, and Shaheed was the clearest choice for the Saints. Here’s why expectations are high for him in 2024:

Chase Young on track in surgery rehab, participating at walkthrough practice

The New Orleans Saints are betting big on Chase Young. The former Ohio State Buckeye and No. 2 pick in the NFL draft signed a unique one-year deal with the Saints in free agency, and they’re putting a lot of hopes on him livening up their pass rush — once he’s cleared for a full workload after undergoing neck surgery earlier this offseason.

Young’s injury was not news to the Saints, who constructed his deal to where they’ll essentially get a refund on the 2025 salary cap for any games he misses in 2024. Just in case. But they’re hoping he’ll be back in action early this season, and with...
