A Super Bowl champion and member of the Saints Hall of Fame hints at a possible return to New Orleans.

By Bob Rose- Saints News Network | SI

Former New Orleans Saints safety Roman Harper teased a possible return to the New Orleans Saints in an interview earlier this week. During SEC Media Week, Harper revealed that he had been speaking to Saints coach Dennis Allen about the possibility of assisting the coaching staff during New Orleans training camp. The Saints officially begin training camp on July 24 in Irvine, California.

Harper, now 41, was a second-round selection by the Saints out of Alabama in the 2006 NFL Draft. It was Sean Payton's first draft with the team and included key stars like Harper, RB Reggie Bush, G Jahri Evans, T Zach Strief, and WR Marques Colston.

After appearing in just five games as a rookie, Harper became a key part of the New Orleans secondary for the next several seasons. He'd intercept three passes in 2007, which turned out to be the second most of his 11-year career, while breaking up eight throws, forcing two fumbles, and recording four sacks among his 90 tackles. ...

As the New Orleans Saints get ready to start training camp in less than a week, the team gave a brief update on some players’ health. The team had seven health-related roster moves as players managing injuries reported for camp.

Chris Olave going on the non-football injury (NFI) list will get the most attention, but take a breath.

Ryan Ramczyk designated to reserve/physically unable to perform list

It had been looking like for a while now that New Orleans Saints All-Pro tackle Ryan Ramczyk’s future with the team was in doubt.

Thursday’s announcement confirmed just this.

The Saints shared that Ramczyk was placed on the reserve/physically unable to perform (PUP) list as he’s battling what’s been reported to be a degenerative knee issue. This will officially sideline him for the first four games of the season. If there were any chance Ramczyk could return sooner he wouldn’t be going on PUP.

With Ramczyk being placed on the list, he’s technically eligible to be activated to the roster...

Would the 49ers accept our Brandon Aiyuk trade offer?

It’s official: Brandon Aiyuk formally requested the San Francisco 49ers trade him to a team willing to pay him what he feels he’s worth. Aiyuk earned a spot on the All-Pro second team last season after posting a career-high 1,342 receiving yards (at a very impressed 17.9 yards per catch), but the 49ers haven’t budged in contract talks or seriously considered offers from other teams. They want him to remain a fixture in Kyle Shanahan’s offense, and at their preferred price point.

Could the New Orleans Saints get involved? They should have a good handle on Aiyuk’s strengths and what makes...

Alvin Kamara's 52-yard touchdown is the Saints Play Of The Day

The New Orleans Saints may not have won the matchup against the Green Bay Packers on Sept. 27, 2020, but one of running back Alvin Kamara’s receptions within the final minute of the third quarter still goes down as one of the best moments in recent team history.

On this one, the versatile Kamara picked up a short pass from quarterback Drew Brees before taking it all the way to the house with the help of a downfield block from Erik McCoy that you’ll have to see to believe. At first, it looked like a quick, short pass that would pick up three or four yards for the team as they tried to make...

Paulson Adebo missed the cut for ESPN's top corners list, but Marshon Lattimore didn't

Who are the best cornerbacks in the NFL? ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler set out to answer that by polling nearly 80 team executives, coaches, and scouts to rank their top 10 players at the position. And while New Orleans Saints corner Paulson Adebo didn’t make the list, his teammate Marshon Lattimore was included as an honorary mention.

Here’s what Fowler’s sources told him about Lattimore:

A couple of freak accidents forced Lattimore to miss a lot of time — he suffered a lacerated kidney in 2022 and an injured ankle in 2023 that sidelined him for 17 games over the last two years. But he’s still a...

5 Saints rookies selected in UFL college draft

Five New Orleans Saints rookies were selected in this year’s UFL college draft, including two teammates going to the three-time champion Birmingham Stallions. But will any of them actually play in the spring league?

That’s what these startup teams are betting on by drafting them. Each player’s UFL rights now belong to these teams whether they ever join the squad or not. If they don’t make the cut with the Saints or sign with another NFL team after the season ends in Jan. 2025, they’ll have a good fallback plan to try their hand in the UFL and continue developing their game.

Here’s a quick look at each of their situations:

Texans try out former Saints offensive tackle Cameron Erving

The Houston Texans tried out former New Orleans Saints offensive lineman Cameron Erving on Wednesday, per KPRC 2’s Aaron Wilson. He ended the 2023 season as their starting right tackle after Ryan Ramczyk and Landon Young were both sidelined by injuries, totaling 208 snaps across three games. But he wasn’t re-signed after the season when the Saints hired a new offensive coaching staff so he clearly isn’t in their plans for 2024.

Erving entered the league as a first-round draft pick by the Cleveland Browns (out of Florida State, where he was college teammates with Jameis Winston), though...

Roster Battles: Johnathan Abram vs. Jordan Howden

The New Orleans Saints have one of the top safeties in the league in Tyrann Matthieu, but the person who stands beside him has yet to be decided. Here’s why I think it’ll be between Johnathan Abram and Jordan Howden.

Abram is entering his second year with the Saints, and for the first time in his career will have the same defensive coordinator as the previous year. He’s jumped around the league since being drafted by the Raiders in 2019, spending time in Green Bay and Seattle before setting his sights on New Orleans. Abram was a practice squad guy, never really seeing any real playing...

Pro Football Network ranks Saints LB Demario Davis 45th on their Top 100 list

Pro Football Network has released their annual Top 100 list of NFL players, and New Orleans Saints LB Demario Davis has made the list, ranked at No. 45.

PFN says of Davis, “A late bloomer in the NFL, Demario Davis has become a genuine force since signing with the New Orleans Saints in 2018 While he’s entering his age-35 campaign, Davis is still among the most productive linebackers in the league. He’s received a first- or second-team All-Pro nod in five consecutive seasons and has been named a Pro Bowler the last two. His 6.5 sacks in 2023 ranked second among off-ball linebackers.”

Ranking Saints' toughest offseason departures: No. 2, Jameis Winston

Jameis Winston may not have played a meaningful down for the New Orleans Saints had he stayed, but his departure for the Cleveland Browns is still heavily felt.

Winston was the Saints’ backup quarterback and one of the better backups in the NFL. He stepped in for Derek Carr on two occasions in 2023, but he didn’t start any games. Saints fans have enough familiarity with backup quarterbacks to know the value of the position.

Go look at how Winston’s backups performed in 2021 and how Teddy Bridgewater performed when filling in for Drew Brees. Drastically different products that yielded...

The tight end that has turned plenty of heads during camp for the New Orleans Saints was selected by the Birmingham Stallions.

Spencer Rattler is the big name to keep an eye on for the backup QB spot, but there are other rookie battles to watch.

The former first round pick has dealt with multiple injuries early in, but feels like year four could be the difference maker.
