The New Orleans Saints cut wide receiver Kenny Stills, per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. The veteran wideout had five receptions for 64 yards and a touchdown this season. His lone touchdown gave the Saints a 25-24 lead with 1:01 left in the fourth quarter against Atlanta in Week 9. But he didn't catch any of his five targets in the Saints' 27-17 loss to Dallas on Dec. 2. The Saints originally drafted Stills out of Oklahoma with the No. 144 overall pick in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft. In his first two seasons with the team, Stills appeared in 31 games (17 starts) and caught 95 passes on 133 targets for 1,572 yards (16.5 ypc) and eight touchdowns.

New Orleans traded Stills to the Miami Dolphins ahead of the 2015 NFL Draft in exchange for linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and a third-round pick. That season, Stills played in 16 games (8 starts) and hauled in 27 passes for 440 yards (16.3 ypc) and three touchdowns.

Stills gushed about the opportunity to return to New Orleans.

New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan has been named the club's 2021 Man of the Year, making him the club nominee for the NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year Award presented by Nationwide. It is the second time that he has been selected by the team with this honor, first receiving it in 2017. The Walter Payton Man of the Year Award presented by Nationwide is given annually by the NFL honoring a player's volunteer and charity work as well as his excellence on the field. Team nominees for all 32 clubs have been announced.

"Cameron's service has been driven by love for this community since he first joined the Saints family ten years ago," said Owner Gayle Benson. "He has a love for this community that rubs off in all of his initiatives. He is fully committed to all that he does – both on and off the field. He is a longtime team leader, devoted husband and father, and selfless servant to our community."

"I've always been passionate about community service, because as a kid I saw first hand the off the field impact and platform my father had having played in the National Football League," Jordan said. "I understand the impact we as NFL players can have on our youth, underserved communities and just taking advantage of the opportunities to make the world a better place. It means the world to me that I may uplift someone with my time, resources, or encouragement. I am blessed to have the ability to give back to this community that has welcomed me with open arms since being drafted ten years ago."

Few NFL teams have experienced a disruption on par with the New Orleans Saints in 2021.

It didn't get better Monday, according to the NFL transaction wire.

Left defensive end Cameron Jordan, who never has missed a game in his NFL career, was placed on the NFL's reserve/Covid-19 list. Jordan, a three-time All-Pro who is tied for second on the team with four sacks and has 98.5 in his career, has started 171 of 172 career games since being drafted in the first round in 2011.

Jordan will need to produce two negative tests before he can return to football activities.

And receiver Deonte Harris, who leads the Saints in receiving yards (523), is second in receptions (31) and has three touchdowns, will serve an NFL-issued suspension for the next three games for an off-field transgression this offseason. Harris was sentenced to a year of supervised probation after pleading not guilty to driving under the influence, with an agreed statement of facts following a traffic incident in July.

"You're waiting, and now we'll go through that process," Payton said of Harris, who also averages 11.2 yards on 12 punt returns, and 23.6 on 25 kick returns. "We kind of knew at some point that was going to be something he was dealing with and then we as a team would deal with it."

How will the Saints cope without Deonte Harris?

Can the New Orleans Saints’ 2021 season be any worse?

Yes, yes it can. Deonte Harris has officially been suspended for the next three games, which means the Saints will play without their top wideout for the most crucial stretch of the season.

Harris currently leads the team with 523 yards, and he’s also averaging a second-best 16.9 yards per catch.

Behind Harris, Marquez Callaway has 409 yards and Tre’Quan Smith has 251 yards.

For a sobering perspective: the Saints rank 27th in the league in receiving yards per game, worse than the one-win Detroit Lions.

One could add up the receiving yards of the Saints’ top three wideouts (Harris, Callaway, Smith) and the total would still be 183 yards shy of Cooper Kupp’s yardage this season.

Ian Book's chances of receiving playing time during his rookie season with the Saints have increased as injuries have piled up at quarterback.

Jameis Winston is out for the season with a knee injury and Taysom Hill is dealing with a banged up finger on his throwing hand. Sean Payton has apparently decided to move on from the Trevor Siemian experiment.

Whether Book actually takes the field this season for the Saints remains to be seen, but the likelihood of him seeing snaps this season increases by the week.

Taysom Hill broke his stride, briefly stutter-stepping before he launched himself over Dallas Cowboys safety Damontae Kazee.

Hill’s hurdle Thursday momentarily made onlookers forget about the partially torn plantar fascia in his right foot and instead moved the spotlight on the sparkly lavender and black Adidas cleats with a glitter rainbow soleplate adorning his feet for My Cause, My Cleats week.

The inspiration for Hill’s metallic footwear stemmed from Maid — a critically acclaimed Netflix miniseries focused on a single mother who leaves her abusive boyfriend — that Hill and his wife...

Saints designate DT Malcolm Roach to return from IR, then waive him

Well that’s odd. After initially designating him to return from injured reserve on Monday, the New Orleans Saints waived defensive tackle Malcolm Roach altogether on Tuesday. He had missed several games with an unspecified knee injury and was expected to return to the active roster so this is a bit of a surprise.

It’s possible the Saints intend to re-sign Roach to their practice squad. He would have to clear waivers first but it makes sense given how thin they’re running at the position; David Onyemata, Shy Tuttle, Christian Ringo, and Josiah Bronson and Albert Huggins are on the 53-man...

The New Orleans Saints announced three roster moves on Tuesday afternoon. New Orleans waived WR Kenny Stills and DT Malcolm Roach, while re-signing WR Kevin White to its practice squad.

Stills, 29, was re-signed by the Saints in October after playing for the team in 2013 and 2014. He was a fifth-round draft choice by New Orleans in 2013, then traded to the Dolphins in 2015, where he played for four years.

Miami traded Stills to Houston in 2019. He was with the Texans until his release late last season and finished the year on Buffalo's practice squad.

Stills saw action in 10 games for...

Former New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Glenn Foster Jr. died in Alabama on Monday following a high-speed police chase culminating in a crash, a jail fight with another detainee that drew two guards into the fray and, finally, a desperate but futile effort to get medical help, according to interviews with authorities and his relatives.

Foster, who was balancing a decade-old bipolar diagnosis while forging careers in the NFL and as a business owner in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, was 31. His death came two days after police in Reform, Alabama, arrested him and turned him over to the...

The New Orleans Saints' reunion with receiver Kenny Stills has ended, as the team waived the veteran receiver Tuesday.

The Saints originally drafted Stills out of Oklahoma in the fifth round of the 2013 draft, and brought him back to the team as a street free agent in September with the hopes that he'd inject some playmaking ability to the receiver corps.

But Stills struggled in 10 games this season, catching just five of the 22 passes thrown his way. His 22.7 % catch percentage is the fourth lowest in the NFL since the league started tracking targets as an official statistic in 1992...

Per the transaction wire, New Orleans has waived receiver Kenny Stills and defensive tackle Malcolm Roach.

Stills had appeared in 10 games with four starts this season, making five catches for 64 yards with a touchdown. He was targeted five times but didn’t make any receptions in the the Week 13 loss to Dallas.

Tom Brady likely to break Drew Brees’ all-time completion record on Sunday

Tom Brady is likely to add another NFL record to his career total on Sunday.

Brady will probably break the all-time completions record, currently held by Drew Brees, at some point during the Buccaneers’ home game against Buffalo.

Brees retired with the record of 7,142 completions in his career. Brady is currently at 7,125 career completions, so he needs 17 to tie the record and 18 to break it. Brady hasn’t been held to less than 20 completions in any game this season, so getting 18 against the Bills is a safe bet.

If Brady falls short, however, there would be some additional drama to...

It was obvious changes needed to happen in the New Orleans Saints receiving corps, and the first big move was the departure of Kenny Stills. The Saints waived the veteran wideout on Tuesday after a series of bad games; if this is for Stills in 2022, he’ll end up with 5 catches on 22 targets, having struggled to establish a connection with any of the three different quarterbacks to target him at various points this season.

Additionally, the Saints brought back Kevin White to their practice squad. White was previously waived after experiencing similar issues, and he’s totaled 1 reception on...
