The New Orleans Saints defense carried the offense through some tough times last season, and turned in a much stronger performance in the playoffs. Their pass rush logged one of its highest sacks totals (51) in years, largely thanks to tight coverage on the back end. Top cornerback Marshon Lattimore was selected for this year’s Pro Bowl.

However, the analysts at Pro Football Focus weren’t quite as impressed. In their eyes, the Saints secondary underperformed, and ranked 17th in the NFL:

New Orleans Saints should look into signing Demaryius Thomas

The New Orleans Saints need to find help Michael Thomas some help this offseason, and veteran Demaryius Thomas could be the ideal addition.

By Nathan Beighle | Who Dat Dish

There’s no denying the New Orleans Saints had struggled to find open receivers aside from Michael Thomas.

Ted Ginn Jr., Tre’Quan Smith, and Keith Kirkwood, when they were on the field, just didn’t get the job done. Drew Brees, Teddy Bridgewater or Taysom Hill were left throwing to arguably the league’s best receiver, Michael Thomas.

Thomas racked up an insane 149 receptions, an NFL record. He was the league’s leader last season with 125 and...

The New Orleans Saints entered the 2019 season with a roster considered among the deepest in the National Football League. That depth was tested with a series of injuries during the year, especially on the defensive side. The Saints persevered most of the season, as evidenced by their 13-3 record and status among the league’s Super Bowl favorites entering the playoffs. Those expectations ended with a 26-20 home playoff upset to the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings exploited the weaknesses on the Saints roster in that game, leading to several questions heading into the offseason.

New Orleans enters the 2020 off-season not only attempting to shore up their shortcomings but also maintain the strength of a roster that is still considered a title contender. The Saints will add talent through both the draft and free agency while also addressing several of their own free agents. They will also get a few players back into the fold that weren’t a factor during this past season because of injuries. Here is some of the returning talent that will affect the Saints' decisions this offseason.

Mike Detillier: What a week for football in Louisiana

What a week it was for football fans in Louisiana.

Last weekend the Tennessee Titans upset the Baltimore Ravens 28-12 to advance to the AFC Championship game.

The architect and general manager of the 2019 version of Titans is former Nicholls State graduate assistant turned linebacker coach for the Colonels Jon Robinson.

Robinson left the coaching ranks once he left the Colonels to get into college scouting and worked his way up to a general manager position and now his team is playing for a spot in the Super Bowl.

Former Nicholls and Northwestern State coach Jay Thomas is also involved in the Titans scouting department as a pregame scout and personnel evaluator.
Then last Sunday afternoon the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Houston Texans to advance to the AFC Championship game.

Three members of the Chiefs coaching staff -- defensive line coach/running game coordinator Brendan Daly, outside linebacker coach Britt Reid and strength and conditioning coach Travis Crittenden -- have been regulars coaching high school players at the Louisiana Line Camp at Nicholls in Thibodaux each summer for the past few seasons.

As we head into the 2020 offseason, the New Orleans Saints currently have a grand total of zero quarterbacks under contract. Drew Brees, Teddy Bridgewater, and Taysom Hill are all free agents (the latter a restricted free agent) and could theoretically all leave for a different team in 2020.

The free agent quarterback class is incredibly deep as it stands now, beyond the likes of the Saints trio listed above. Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys, the resurgent Ryan...

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Panthers All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey has pulled out of the Pro Bowl after a memorable season.

McCaffrey isn't injured. Rather, he decided not to play in the Pro Bowl because Carolina's spring workouts have been moved up two weeks after the team hired a new head coach in Matt Rhule. The team can open camp as early as April 6. The third-year running back wanted enough time to allow his body to recover and be ready for the workouts...

Third year running back Alvin Kamara has now been named to his 3rd straight pro bowl. Kamara had what some say an off year. It is a little drop off from his year 1 and 2 numbers. The biggest drop off was his touchdowns, his rookie year he had 13 touchdowns, year 2 he had 18 touchdowns, and this season he only had 6 touchdowns.

Every year of his career he has amassed 81 receptions. Since year 1 his numbers have slowly declined from 826, 709, to 533 yards this season...
