Jameis Winston didn’t go into sales mode because all he had to do was tell his truth.

When Jarvis Landry and Winston spoke this offseason, the wide receiver listened to the Saints’ quarterback as he explained how the team operates and the culture in place. Winston couldn’t say enough good things about the coaching staff. All of this was what Landry wanted to hear.

“I want to walk into a situation where the culture is set, walk into a situation where everybody’s working on one accord,” Landry said. “That’s something that’s very important to me at this stage in my career.”

After their first conversation, Landry wanted to keep talking. So, they talked more about the dynamics of the receiver room and how Landry would fit into the mix. The wide receiver became convinced that he would have opportunities to make plays and that he shared a vision with Winston on how that was going to happen.

“He’s gonna throw, and he’s gonna make plays, and he’s gonna trust his guys to make plays for him,” Landry said. “And as a receiver, that’s all you need, that’s all you want.” ...

There are a lot of question marks heading into the 2022 NFL season for the New Orleans Saints. They didn’t get the full look last year at Jameis Winston that they wanted, but what they did see was promising. Dennis Allen is taking over as head coach for the first time in New Orleans, Pete Carmichael is in charge of the offense now. No one really knows how it will play out.

The draft and free agency seems to point to the fact that the Saints believe that they will be in the running this season. They’ve brought in accomplished veterans at positions of need and great culture fits in Tyrann...

Bring em’ home!

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any more exciting for New Orleans Saints fans after signing New Orleans’ own Tyrann Mathieu, the team made a splash addition with adding another familiar face from the state of Louisiana.

Jarvis “Juice” Landry, a Louisiana high school football and LSU legend is returning home to play for the team he grew up watching as a kid. A move that has sent the city of New Orleans in shambles... in a positive way.

The signing of Landry makes the Saints receiver room the most complete it has been since Thomas, Cooks and Snead were together...

Training camp nears closer, and all regular season schedules have been released. The schedule is fairly tough for New Orleans but with the offseason moves Dennis Allen and the front office have made, it’s hard not to feel confident about every matchup listed.

WEEKS 1-6: Atlanta, Tampa Bay, Carolina, Minnesota, Seattle, Cincinnati

The Saints open up the season with three of their first six games in the dome (Minnesota game in London), an ideal schedule to start the season off hot and leave room for error down the line. Looking at these first six games, 4-2 should be the bare minimum. New...

Throughout most of coach Sean Payton's 16-year tenure with the franchise, the New Orleans Saints were known for elite offensive production. Over the last four seasons, that narrative has changed to people who follow the team.

New Orleans has owned one of the league's top run defenses since 2018. For the last two years, they've ranked near the top of the NFL in several defensive categories.

The Saints defense reached dominant levels through most of the 2021 season. They carried an offense that slipped to the bottom of the league because of injuries and ineffective depth. They nearly...

The Bills might have ended last season with a coin flip and heartbreak, but according to ESPN's Football Power Index, they enter the 2022 NFL season as the best team in football and the Super Bowl favorites.

Buffalo leads ESPN's FPI preseason ratings -- which were released on Tuesday -- and is about a half-point clear of Green Bay, the model's No. 2 team. Projections-wise, our FPI rankings see a fairly even field, with the Bills at the top with a 7% chance to win Super Bowl LVII, followed closely by the Rams (7%), Packers (6%), Chiefs (6%) and Chargers (6%).

Sean Payton will reportedly be a studio analysts for FOX for the 2022 NFL season.

The Saints have signed running back Devine Ozigbo and linebacker Eric Wilson and have waived center Cohl Cabral, linebacker Josh Dublanko, and wide receiver Jalen McCleskey.

Saints head coach Dennis Allen said that he believes that Drew Brees’s suggestion that he might play football again was “made in jest,” and added, “we certainly haven’t had any conversations in that regard.”

Saints general manager Mickey Loomis has also reportedly not spoken to Drew Brees about a return, seemingly in line with Dennis...

The Saints did some post-rookie minicamp roster shuffling on Monday.

The team announced the signing of running back Devine Ozigbo and confirmed the reported signing of linebacker Eric Wilson. They waived center Cohl Cabral, linebacker Joel Dublanko, and wide receiver Jalen McCleskey in corresponding moves.

Ozigbo was released by the Patriots after New England selected a pair of running backs in this year’s draft. He had two previous stints with the Saints and played in two games for the team last season. He’s also appeared in 19 games for the Jags and has 12 catches for 65 yards and 11...

The Saints have recently signed two Louisiana natives and LSU stars in defensive back Tyrann Mathieu and wide receiver Jarvis Landry, and Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis says those two players were particularly excited to become Saints.

“Both these guys, Tyrann and Jarvis, it’s a little bit unique when you bring somebody back to their home] state and their home territory,” Loomis said, via NoLa.com. “Just the excitement that both those guys had; they’re veteran players who have been around the league and have been really accomplished for a number of years, and yet they’re like kids...

Jameis Winston’s knee injury last season has him “hungrier” going into this season

Jameis Winston became a starting quarterback again last season, but it lasted only seven games. He injured his knee in an Oct. 31 game against the Buccaneers, requiring season-ending surgery.

With Winston rehabbing and a free agent, the offseason began with uncertainty about the Saints’ starting quarterback for 2022. The Saints, though, didn’t acquire Deshaun Watson and re-signed Winston, so Winston returns for some unfinished business.

“I just got hungrier,” Winston told NFL Media. “I got hungrier, because now it’s just an admiration and a passion I got for the game, but the hunger I...

C.J. Gardner-Johnson threw his hands up in both excitement and disbelief.

The New Orleans Saints' starting nickelback stood on the sixth fairway with his golfing group for the Saints Hall of Fame Celebrity Golf Classic at the Chateau Country Club in Kenner on Monday morning and watched in awe as one of his teammates for the day perfectly nailed his shot 120 yards from the pin.

As Geoff Mitchell jogged around the water hazard to confirm that he did in fact hole out, Gardner-Johnson egged him on.

Saints land just 3 prime time games on 2022 schedule

Well, that’s disappointing. The New Orleans Saints have been one of the NFL’s top draws for prime time games in front of a national audience in recent years — the team received five high-profile night games in 2021, plus four of them in both 2020 and 2019. But this year, without Sean Payton and without Drew Brees, Saints fans will only get to see three games in prime time (barring flex scheduling changes later on, and not counting the early-morning kickoff from London, of course).

It does make sense. Payton and Brees were the architects of nearly two decades of success in New Orleans. The...

The Saints announced several moves on Monday afternoon. The team has added running back Devine Ozigbo and linebacker Eric Wilson, and has waived center Cohl Cabral, linebacker Joel Dublanko, and wide receiver Jalen McCleskey.

Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reported the McCleskey news on Sunday afternoon. This will be the third time that Ozigbo is with the Saints, as he was originally added as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2019. The Jaguars would claim him in September of that season, but Ozigbo was signed off their practice squad in 2021. He ended up appearing in two games for...

The deal is for one year, according to Andrews’ agent Brett Tessler.

Andrews, who entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2014, spent last season with the Falcons. He appeared in two games and all of his snaps came on special teams.
