Here are some remaining talents in the free agent pool that the Saints may target before the start of training camp.

By Bob Rose - Saints News Network | SI

The New Orleans Saints officially kick off their 2024-25 training camp next week. Because of renovations at the team's usual facilities, most of this year's training camp will be held in Irvine, California. Rookies are scheduled to report by July 16, with all others expecting to report the following week. First official practice is on July 24.

New Orleans is coming off a 9-8 season where they missed the playoffs for the third consecutive year. The team is hoping to break that string in their third year under coach Dennis Allen and second with Derek Carr at quarterback.

The Saints did not make a major splash in free agency this offseason. However, LB Willie Gay Jr. and DE Chase Young are expected to bolster an already good unit. Outside of Gay and Young, all others signings were in hopes of strengthening depth at several positions.

While the Saints have a ton of talented players, there are still some areas of the team that has major questions. Surprisingly, there are still several available talents remaining on the free agent market. ...

Chris Simms ranks 40 NFL quarterbacks (including Saints' Derek Carr)

  • News source: John Sigler

It’s become a yearly summer tradition for NBC Sports’ Chris Simms to share his ranking of the 40 best quarterbacks in the NFL, including New Orleans Saints starter Derek Carr. How does the former NFL signal-caller rank today’s passers?

Carr fell in the bottom half of this list, but so did his backup last year Jameis Winston (signed by the Cleveland Browns in free agency), who ranked ahead of division-rival quarterback Bryce Young (Carolina Panthers). All three of them trailed Baker Mayfield (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), and Simms joins the chorus calling Kirk Cousins (Atlanta Falcons) the best quarterback in the division. But is the gap between those three veteran passers — Carr, Mayfield, and Cousins — really as wide as Simms suggests? We’ll know for sure in just a few months.

Here are Simms’ full rankings from No. 40 to No. 1:

Ranking Saints' toughest offseason departures: No. 4, Zack Baun

Continuing our series of ranking the toughest departures from the New Orleans Saints this offseason, linebacker Zack Baun finds himself fourth on the list.

Baun leaving for the Philadelphia Eagles has the potential to be a huge regret for New Orleans, but their usage of him prevented him from entering the top-three in this list. Baun entered the NFL draft as a pass rusher whose size best suited him as a linebacker in an odd-front defense. That would allow him to stay on-ball and rush the passer on most downs.

Instead, the Saints converted him to an off-ball role, which immediately...

Derek Carr misses the cut for ESPN's list of the 18 top quarterbacks

Yikes. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler has been busy polling personnel around the NFL on their top-10 rankings at every position, seeking feedback from general managers, coaches, and scouts alike. And of the “nearly 80 voters” he spoke with, not a single one was willing to rank Derek Carr among the game’s best quarterbacks.

Between the top-10 list, six honorable mentions, and two other quarterbacks receiving votes, there were 18 passers highlighted by ESPN’s rankings. And the New Orleans Saints’ $150 million man was not among them.

Carr has been on a decline in these annual rankings, frequently...

Three Saints rookies who could become starters in 2024

The New Orleans Saints rookies are reporting to training camp next week, and there are many players to watch. There is only one sure-thing starter from this rookie class, and that is Taliese Fuaga. The rest of the rookies will have to fight for their roster spots, and while doing that, a few could even jump to starters.

Being drafted in the fifth-round does not bring high year-one expectations. Bub Means has the potential to rise high above the expectations set on him in 2024. Going into the NFL Draft, Means was considered a raw player with elite athleticism. His QB play at Pitt was not...

Ranking the Saints' five best offseason additions: No. 4, Willie Gay

The New Orleans Saints were selective in free agency and Willie Gay Jr. was the first major free agent pick up. He’s also the first free agent on our top-five offseason addition rankings.

And the veteran linebacker has a very clear role in the Saints defense before ever taking a snap. Gay will be one of the three linebackers in the Saints base defense. It isn’t guaranteed, but it would be shocking if that wasn’t the floor for him on the defense. He’ll also compete with Pete Werner for the coveted spot next to Demario Davis in New Orleans’ more popular two-linebacker formations.

We asked you which undrafted free agents have the best chance of making the roster. We have the results from that poll question right here.

One group that could benefit from depth, especially younger depth, is the safety spot. Should the Black and Gold look at acquiring one before the season?

Why the Saints offensive line must improve in 2024

  • News source: mollybauer23

Let’s just grab the cat out of the bag. The offensive line for the New Orleans Saints did not perform well in 2023.

Average at best, with the entire season in perspective they were near the bottom of the league. 35 sacks would be allowed - which wouldn’t actually be pretty far from the bottom - but they only had 1,742 rushing yards, which shoots them down the latter in terms of efficiency. Also, the sack numbers were a little surprising to me. It seems that the o-line broke down at the worst moments for the team.

The offensive line also didn’t take care of their man guy, the quarterback...

Robert Meachem's 55-yard catch against the Cowboys is the Saints Play of the Day

There are 55 days to go until the New Orleans Saints kick off their 2024 regular season, and today’s Saints Play of the Day countdown is a blast from the past. We’re taking it back to 2010’s Thanksgiving Day game against the Dallas Cowboys to highlight Robert Meachem’s 55-yard reception.

Now, Meachem didn’t score on this play, but it was about as impactful as it possibly could be while coming up short of that. The Saints were trailing 27-23 and facing 3rd-and-10 from their own 33-yard line, with just 2:25 left in regulation. The Cowboys were surging, having won each of their last two...

Countdown to Kickoff: Isaiah Foskey is the Saints Player of Day 55

We’ve got 55 days to go until the New Orleans Saints’ regular season kicks off, which makes the current No. 55 our Saints Player of the Day: Isaiah Foskey. What does a successful Year 2 look like for the former second-round draft pick? Let’s break it down.

Foskey may have fit the same athletic profile as past Saints draft picks like Marcus Davenport and Payton Turner, but he was seen as a very different prospect coming out of college. He won Notre Dame’s school sacks record (26.5) and was considered to be a very polished pass rusher compared to guys from smaller programs who didn’t have...
