Mitchell Loewen has always been a devout man of conviction and he’s not about to stop now.

The 2011 Lahainaluna High School graduate was cut by the New Orleans Saints in May, but his NFL dream still burns brightly within him.

“My goal is to just keep pursuing it as far as the Lord will take me,” Loewen said via phone from his home in Fayetteville, Ark., on Friday. “And he has got me this far and I’m super thankful for all the opportunities that I’ve had and got to play in and everyone I’ve got to meet, coaches I’ve got to play for. So, yeah, I’m still in it. I’m still training, I’m still hoping for another shot.”

Usually a defensive lineman as a pro, the 6-foot-5, 285-pounder has been catching passes from former Arkansas teammate Brandon Allen — the pair throw together about once a week. In three seasons playing for the Saints, he has played in four regular-season games for a total of 66 snaps on defense and special teams, recording two tackles. ...

The New Orleans Saints are 70 days away from their Week 1 clash with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Here is a look at the greatest player in Saints history to wear #70: OT Jammal Brown

Jammal Brown, 39, spent seven seasons in the NFL, five with the New Orleans Saints. After arriving at Oklahoma as an All-state awarded DT, Brown solidified himself as one of the best OL in the country, winning the Outland Award (best interior lineman) in 2004. A unanimous All-American in 2004, Brown entered the 2005 NFL Draft regarded as the best OT in his class.

The New Orleans Saints selected Brown 13th overall in the 2005 NFL Draft. Brown started 13 games as a rookie playing at RT and made the NFL’s All-Rookie Team. In 2006, under new HC Sean Payton, Brown moved from RT to LT. Tasked with protecting the Saints' new $60M man, QB Drew Brees, Brown produced his best NFL season. Brown anchored a strong OL that led the Saints to their first-ever NFC Championship appearance in 2006. Starting in 15 games, Brown earned his first trip to the Pro-Bowl following the Saints 10-6 season. ...

Johnson: Maybe it's not fair to compare Saints' Tommy Stevens to Taysom Hill — but it's hard not to

The player in question was an all-state safety in high school. He was a punter, too, and as a freshman he played on special teams coverage units to go along with some wide receiver, tight end and linebacker.

Now he’s in the NFL, where he is first and foremost focused on being a quarterback. But he is also willing to do whatever the New Orleans Saints are asking of him.

Think you know who this player is?

You might have guessed Taysom Hill, and that is kind of the point.

Life of a Saint: Will Smith

With such a storied career, it’s hard to pick a favorite memory of Will Smith.

I mean, we are talking about a player who, in college at Ohio State, was a First-Team All American, Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year, Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, Second and First-Team All-Big Ten in successive years, and an SEC National Champion. When Smith made it to the NFL, he continued his storied career by being a first-round draft pick, a Pro Bowler and, of course, a Super Bowl Champion. Smith retired at #4 on the all-time New Orleans Saints career sack leader board.

We are beginning a new series here at Canal Street Chronicles where we will highlight some of the New Orleans Saints most promising undrafted free agents (UDFA) that were signed this offseason.

Imagine, if you will, being a quarterback in the NFL whose line struggles so badly that you’re sacked nine times in a single game. Now, imagine in that same game you throw an interception to a defensive linemen who proceeds to stiff arm you into meme-land.

That is the life of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan on November 28, 2019.

Cameron Jordan had a four sack game, Marcus Davenport chipped in two more, and interceptions by Shy Tuttle and Chauncey Gardner-Johnson all contributed to the defense providing one of the best performances in New Orleans Saints history. Not only was the...

CSC Slack: Top Five Most-Hated Players from the Division in the Payton-Brees Era

Every sports fan has a few of those players in their team’s division who just irk them when they face up against their squad. We don’t really hate them, (well...) but it’s just especially un-enjoyable when a player from a rival team makes big plays and/or celebrates in your face on a consistent basis when playing your hometown team.

Whether it be someone like Drew Brees from a Buccaneer fan’s perspective, who just tears their team apart every time he plays them; Cam Newton, who not only makes big plays, but lets you know about it when he does; Or even Matt Ryan, who just has a face that’s...

Saints expecting more from Marcus Davenport

The Saints traded up to take defensive end Marcus Davenport in the first round of the 2018 draft and that move was starting to pay dividends last season.

Davenport had three sacks and two forced fumbles in wins over the Panthers and Falcons in Weeks 12 and 13 last season, but the surge ended against the 49ers in Week 14. That’s when Davenport suffered a Lisfranc injury that brought his season to an end.

Saints defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen said that Davenport has “done the best that he can with his rehab” this offseason. He added that the team is looking for a big step forward as a...

WASHINGTON — The title sponsor of the Washington Redskins’ stadium wants the NFL team to change its name.

“We have communicated to the team in Washington our request that they change the team name,“ FedEx said in a statement Thursday.

The company paid the team $205 million in 1999 for the naming rights to FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland.

In addition to the stadium name and sponsorship agreement, FedEx CEO Frederik Smith is a minority owner. Majority owner Daniel Snyder has shown no indications he’ll change the name since buying the team in 1999.

For the second time in as many professional seasons, New Orleans Saints defensive end Marcus Davenport felt the rug yanked out from under him just as his immense potential to create havoc was showing.

In his last two full games of the 2019 season — Weeks 12 and 13, against divisional foes Carolina and Atlanta — Davenport recorded three sacks, two forced fumbles and seven tackles. Those two games pushed his season sack total to six. Between Davenport and Cam Jordan, the Saints starting defensive ends had 19.5 sacks in the first 12 games of the season.

Then, in the fourth quarter of a Week...

As it becomes clear that the simplest way everyone can reduce the spread of COVID-19 is to wear a mask, NFL teams are promoting the wearing of masks in the hopes that the football season will be able to start on time. The 49ers have found a creative way to do it.

The 49ers’ Twitter posted the message, “Be a saint. Grab a face mask” with video of George Kittle‘s catch-and-run to set up the winning field goal in last season’s game at New Orleans. That play ended with Saints safety Marcus Williams blatantly grabbing and pulling Kittle’s facemask in a desperate attempt to bring him down.

It’s no secret the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons are like oil and water. No love is lost between the players or the fans, and each team typically finds a sick level of joy out of the other team’s failure.

But outside of the NFC South rivalry between the Saints and Falcons, who would be the Saints next biggest rival? Or put another way, which team do you dislike the most?

When you ask most Saints fans for a list of rival teams they dislike not named “Falcon,” you’d be met with all kinds of answers. Older fans might quickly say the San Francisco 49ers from the old NFC West days...

I’ve discussed some of the negative effects this virus might have on both the season ticket holders and coaching staffs, but I haven’t yet touched on the most important population within the NFL: the players themselves.

The NFLPA recently sent out a memo to all player agents directing them to have conversations with their clients about the risks inherent with Covid-19. Portions of the memo were released to ESPN.

Following a rushed reopening of the economy, many states are reporting soaring new case numbers. Arizona, Texas, and Florida, which are home to six NFL franchises, are reporting...
