The New Orleans Saints have few picks to work with in the 2019 NFL Draft, but they made the most of them in a recent mock draft. Trevor Sikkema of The Draft Network charted all seven rounds, suggesting players to fit each of the Saints’ selections. Here’s who he picked up for the black and gold:

Saints can’t afford Andrus Peat without sweetheart deal

An interesting piece from ESPN.com on Thursday, Feb. 14, suggests the Saints give Andrus Peat a massive pay raise. We say ain’t gonna happen.

We’ve done a fair amount of talking about the issues about to come up for the Saints with left guard Andrus Peat. Between Peat and Terron Armstead, without any kind of contract restructuring, those two will account for just over $31 million toward the team’s 2019 salary cap.

Peat’s number for 2019 is $9.625 if the team kicks in the fifth year option on the contract for the Saints first round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Armstead is set to make over $10 million a year for the next three years running. ...

The New Orleans Saints have some pressing business to get to.

A few prominent players are entering the offseason as free agents, including the likes of running back Mark Ingram and reserve quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, among others.

Over the next month or so, the Saints will have to deal with a few triggers in the existing contracts for several of their players, in addition to others that will come in later years.

“Teams will need to decide before each date whether or not to exercise the trigger,” according to the analysis of Over the Cap. “In many cases, the contract must be terminated in order to avoid the clause in question from triggering.”

Here is a list of the upcoming contract triggers for the Saints. ...

For much of the season, the New Orleans Saints enjoyed good health.

Every position group was playing at peak performance and peak health in the early and middle portion of the 2018 campaign, but there were still a few notable concerns.

The team’s excellent offensive line succumbed to a few ailments, then their defensive front suffered one bad injury in the playoffs, a few of their reserve players had some problems dating back to the summer, and then one of their prime free agent acquisitions went down in a practice.

Here is a rundown of every player the Saints have returning from injury in 2019. ...

By John Sigler | Saintswire

The New Orleans Saints will be poring over the lists of unrestricted free agents from every NFL team, looking for players who can help the black and gold. So we’ll be highlighting the options each team presents, every day of the week and twice on Saturdays. We’ll get started with the Arizona Cardinals.
Unrestricted free agents

DE Benson Mayowa
DE Markus Golden
DE Zach Moore
DT Rodney Gunter
FB Derrick Coleman
FS Tre Boston
K Phil Dawson
LB Deone Bucannon
LB Gerald Hodges
OG Mike Iupati
OG Oday Aboushi
OT Joe Barksdale
TE John Phillips
WR J.J. Nelson

Options for the Saints

Defensive tackle Rodney Gunter is an intriguing free agent. He’s a nose tackle (listed at 6-foot-5, 305-pounds) just hitting his prime at 27 years of age. Gunter logged a career-high 44 combined tackles last year (32 solo, 12 for no gain or loss of yards) to go with 4.5 sacks and nine quarterback hits. That profiles him as a disruptive presence who can anchor the middle of the line, offering more upside than the Saints’ incumbent nose tackles — Tyeler Davison had just two tackles for loss or no gain, and Taylor Stallworth only one. ...
