The first Saints OTA session is in the books, and here's a good bit of notes and observation from Tuesday's practice.

We got our first access to one of the many Saints OTA sessions on Tuesday, which gave us plenty of goodies to talk about for the next week. As always, here's all of my notes, observation and more from what all I saw at practice.

Saints OTAs, Day 1 Notes, Observations and More


Twelve Saints were not spotted during the open portion of OTAs on Tuesday. Keep in mind, attendance is strictly voluntary, and Dennis Allen said afterwards that he's aware of those who were not attending, whether it be for a personal reason or not. Stanley Morgan Jr., Jamaal Williams, Marshon Lattimore, Kool-Aid McKinstry, Nephi Sewell, Jaylan Ford, Nathan Latu, Ryan Ramczyk, Tanoh Kpassagnon, Nathan Shepherd and Chase Young.

Several of the absences were related to injuries, which we touched on this morning. Oli Udoh was working off to the side, while Nathan Peterman, Mark Evans and Tommy Hudson were not participating.


We got some really good information on the future of Lattimore on Monday afternoon from Dennis Allen, and it sounded even more promising after another update rom the Saints head coach. Allen doesn't expect to see him before minicamp, but say that's not uncommon, going back to 2020. ...

Raiders QB Aidan O'Connell explains why he switched out of Derek Carr's number

There wasn’t much love lost between Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders last year, when the longtime franchise quarterback shown the door after being benched for the last few weeks of the 2022 season. And that relationship splintered further when rookie quarterback Aidan O’Connell put on Carr’s No. 4 jersey just months after Carr left to join the New Orleans Saints.

But O’Connell switched to No. 12 this offseason. He shared his reasoning on his teammate Maxx Crosby’s podcast, saying that it wasn’t his decision to pick No. 4 in the first place, and he hopes this gesture is seen as a...

Alontae Taylor ranked among NFL's best press cornerbacks

  • News source: John Sigler

There may not be a tougher job in the NFL than running with a receiver in press coverage. The margin for error shrinks to almost nothing, and defensive backs are at a disadvantage by running while being asked to keep their hands on the wideout and tracking the ball in flight — and doing it all while sprinting backwards.

But some corners are better at it than others. And New Orleans Saints nickel Alontae Taylor earned high praise for his skills in press coverage from Touchdown Wire’s Doug Farrar, who ranked him seventh-best among his peers. Taylor struggled to learn on the job in the slot...

What should Saints do if Taliese Fuaga doesn't impress at left tackle?

It is not uncommon for the New Orleans Saints to change the position of a draft pick. They’ve yet to fully commit to this tactic, but it feels like they’re leaning this way with Taliese Fuaga. When he lined up at left tackle during rookie minicamps, it was brushed off as just getting a look. Now that Trevor Penning has also flipped sides at OTAs, this feels like a vision.

The Saints have a history of this with first-round offensive linemen. Andrus Peat, Ryan Ramczyk, and Cesar Ruiz each played unexpected positions as rookies. The question is, what happens if Fuaga doesn’t look good at...

Saints projected to take a step down in 2024 by NFL analyst

  • Views: 5’s Cynthia Frelund did her season projections after the NFL schedule release, and it doesn’t look good for Dennis Allen and the New Orleans Saints. Frelund based her totals off talent, opponents, and sequencing of the schedule. Consecutive tough games is valued differently than three tough games in 7 weeks. She ran 150,000 simulations, and these were her results.

Frelund projects the Saints will finish with 7.4 wins, which rounds down to a 7-10 record. That’s a two-game drop from last year’s 9-8 record. This outcome would draw a mix of disappointing and slightly unsurprised...

The New Orleans Saints begin OTAs on Monday and several notable players were missing from practice.

Meeting with the media after practice, Dennis Allen said he thought the team had a really good first day of practice, saw some good competition between the offense and defense and he was pleased. But they won’t jump to any conclusions right now, will review the tape and make necessary corrections.

While several players were missing due to injuries, other notable players were not in attendance, like Alvin Kamara and Marshon Lattimore. When asked if he was concerned about any of the...
