By John Hendrix - Saints News Network | SI

The Saints have taken care of one of their own before training camp starts. As first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter, New Orleans has given Pro Bowl receiver Rashid Shaheed a one-year, $5.2 million contract extension. This will tie Shaheed to the team through 2025 and it comes in right about a projected second round tender at $4.978 million

Shaheed was tendered as an exclusive rights free agent this offseason and was set to become a restricted free agent after this year. He's made a considerable impact in New Orleans since coming on as undrafted rookie in 2022. In his second season, Shaheed became an All-Pro return man in addition to making the Pro Bowl. ...

Shaheed is expected to have a No. 2 receiver position this season, reported. Last season, he became a weapon in the offense, tallying 46 catches for 719 yards and 5 touchdowns.

The New Orleans Saints were represented on the’s 30 over 30 list by Demario Davis and Tyrann Mathieu. Now, Chris Olave has been highlighted on a similar ranking. The third-year wide receiver made Bleacher Report’s 25 under 25 team.

Olave was ranked as the 17th-best player under the age of 25. He’s joined by his old Ohio State teammate Garrett Wilson. Wide receivers were well-represented on the list. The position made up over a fifth of the total count. That’s no surprise with how prolific wide receivers have been early in their careers in today’s game. Of the six receivers on the...

The New Orleans Saints have signed wide receiver Rashid Shaheed to a contract extension, as first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter and confirmed by NewOrleans.Football’s Nick Underhill.

The former undrafted free agent agreed to a one-year, $5.2 million extension that will keep him with the Saints through the 2025 season.

Good for him. The Weber State product is coming off a career year. Shaheed finished last season with 46 catches, 716 receiving yards, and five...

What's next for Saints with Ryan Ramczyk out for the 2024 season?

What’s next for the New Orleans Saints with former All-Pro right tackle Ryan Ramczyk out for the 2024 season? Their options are limited on the eve of training camp, but they knew this was coming — head coach Dennis Allen has alluded to it as a possibility as far back as NFL owners meetings in March. That’s around the same time they informed Trevor Penning he’d be moving to right tackle while making plans to pick a new left tackle early in April’s draft.

In a perfect world they wouldn’t have to make any moves: Penning would develop as hoped with a new coaching staff and hold down the job...

Pro Football Focus ranks Demario Davis in their top 50 players of 2024

Do the New Orleans Saints have a better player on their roster than Demario Davis? Maybe, depending on just how highly you value guys like Chris Olave or Marshon Lattimore, but Davis has the most convincing case of the bunch. You just don’t see many players performing as consistently as he does at such a high level so late in their careers.

So it’s not too surprising that Davis was the only Saint on this list of the NFL’s best 50 players of 2024 from Pro Football Focus. Here’s why PFF’s Sam Monson ranked him at No. 45 overall, third-best among all linebackers currently in the game:

Saints training camp: 35 players who are locks for the 53-man roster

  • News source: John Sigler

New Orleans Saints training camp is finally in sight. While competition is brewing for dozens of roster spots over the next month of practice, some jobs are already safe. Between secure starters returning from last year’s team, highly-valued draft picks and hefty salary cap investments, these 35 players are locks to make the 53-man roster.

Some omissions might be surprising. Veteran players like running back Jamaal Williams and defensive tackle Khalen Saunders need to perform at a higher level than they did a year ago. Simply being drafted isn’t enough for late-round rookies like wide receiver Bub Means and linebacker Jaylan Ford to make the team. Specialists like Lou Hedley and Blake Grupe must fend off the competition coming for their jobs.

Barring a surprise trade for a former Pro Bowler like Marshon Lattimore or Alvin Kamara, it would be a shock to see any of these 35 players not on the Week 1 roster in September:

The New Orleans Saints are betting big on their youth movement at wide receiver. Chris Olave and Rashid Shaheed are expecting A.T. Perry to join them in the starting lineup, and he did show some real playmaking ability as a rookie last season. But he’ll need to outplay veterans like Cedrick Wilson Jr. and Equanimeous St. Brown during training camp to win that WR3 job, and all while another rookie draft pick, Bub Means, is pushing him.

How does this group compare to other receiving corps you’ll find around the NFL?

Willie Snead's 50-yard TD pass to Tim Hightower is the Saints Play of the Day

Here’s a trick shot. Willie Snead IV’s 50-yard touchdown pass to Tim Hightower against the Los Angeles Rams back in 2016 is our pick for New Orleans Saints Play of the Day, which you can see here.

Now a 50-yard touchdown pass is impressive in its own right. That Snead, a wide receiver, was the one to throw it to Hightower, a running back, only makes it even more spectacular. Brees threw to Snead behind the line of scrimmage, who threw it himself to Hightower wide open in the Los Angeles secondary. It was a beauty of a pass from Snead, who last played quarterback in high school.

Khalen Saunders is wearing a new jersey number in 2024. He’s the New Orleans Saints Player of Day 50 in our countdown to kickoff in Week 1’s matchup with the Carolina Panthers. Saunders wore No. 99 last year, his first season with the Saints, but he’s switching to No. 50 since Chase Young joined the team and took it from him.

What does a successful season look like for Saunders? Let’s put him under the spotlight in today’s feature.

Saunders’ first season with the Saints could be characterized as good, not great. He didn’t have a sack but he did post the second-most quarterback pressures...
