Locked On Saints

New Orleans Saints safety Tyrann Mathieu has made several plays throughout training camp and he's done it from all over the field. He has proven his value is well beyond that of his contract figures. He and Marcus Maye are shaping up to be a great tandem in place of Marcus Williams and Malcolm Jenkins. With the Houston Texans preseason matchup right around the corner, trench players like Trevor Penning and David Onyemata get to show their value in full speed action.

The New Orleans Saints recently signed Jack Koerner and Brian Allen. Here are three things you should know about each player.

3. Jack Koerner used to play at Iowa​

Koerner was a three-year starter at Iowa and recorded 137 tackles, six interceptions and one forced fumble in 34 games.

2. Koerner spent a brief stint with the Saints as an undrafted free agent​

After going undrafted in 2022, the Saints signed Koerner to the roster, and Koerner joined former Michigan defensive back Vincent Gray in New Orleans as a fellow UDFA.

The Saints later waived Koerner in May to add tight end Kahale Warring on the roster instead. ...

Looking at the four biggest Saints storylines going into their preseason opener

After a couple weeks testing themselves against each other, the New Orleans Saints will finally get a chance to show what they can do against a different team in their preseason opener against the Houston Texans.

Most of the Saints will get that chance, anyway.

Here’s four of the top storylines heading into Saturday night’s game.

All we know for sure is that quarterback Jameis Winston won’t play, but don’t be surprised if the Saints keep a bunch of their most important players in figurative bubble wrap on the sideline. Coach Dennis Allen has taken a proactive approach in limiting his...

Ian Book needs to show the Saints he belongs in preseason vs. Texans

Sophomore quarterback Ian Book did not have the most ideal start to his NFL career last season for the New Orleans Saints, but the preseason gives him another shot to prove that he belongs on the roster.

Book was a surprise fourth-round selection in the 2021 draft, pointing to the fact that the coaching staff and front office saw something special from his time at Notre Dame. The production was there, garnering an impressive 72-20 touchdown to interception ratio and near 9,000 passing yards. It was also known that he was a raw product, though, who likely would not see playing time anytime...

Rod Walker: Saints preseason opener a time to shine for running backs not named Kamara, Ingram

You can go ahead and write Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram’s name with a permanent marker on the Saints’ 53-man roster.

Heck, etch it in stone if you want to.

Dennis Allen doesn’t need to see anything else from those two this preseason.

There are almost 200 combined games and over 10,000 yards worth of film of those two running backs in a New Orleans Saints uniform.

So the Saints’ preseason opener against the Houston Texans on Saturday night will be more about finding backups for Boom (Ingram) and Zoom (Kamara) if needed.

“I like the depth and looking forward to seeing somebody in that...

Excitement, and maybe even relief, was in the air Thursday as the New Orleans Saints concluded their final practice before their preseason opener against the Houston Texans.

Gameday comes after 14 practices — two in jerseys, five in shells, seven in pads — in training camp. Friday simply consisted of a walkthrough before the team traveled to Houston. The Saints play the Texans at 7 p.m. Saturday in NRG Stadium.

“Practice should be harder than the game, because obviously we’re going up against each other … we’re working against somebody that should know what we’re doing after practice and...

Saints preseason opener features 1st-rounders Olave, Penning

NEW ORLEANS — Saints top draft choice Chris Olave senses that the bursts of speed and sudden changes in direction that served him well in college will translate well in the NFL.

Fellow New Orleans first-round pick Trevor Penning has been exhibiting the same nasty streak as a blocker that intrigued the Saints when they were scouting him.

Olave, taken 11th overall out of Ohio State, and Penning, selected 19th overall out of Northern Iowa, both have stood out during the opening weeks of training camp.

Their first live action against another team comes Saturday night in Houston.

Trevor Penning: I’m not going to take away the physical part of my game

Saints rookie tackle Trevor Penning made an ornery mark on early training camp practices by fighting with teammates often enough that the team kicked him out of one of the sessions.

Penning said he’s heard from coaches about where he needs to draw the line, but that he’s not going to change the playing style that made him a first-round pick earlier this year. Penning said that there’s “nothing’s nice about football” and that he doesn’t plan to be any less physical on the field.

“You’ve just got to play smart,” Penning said Thursday. “Play physical, play my game, but be smart. I think...

Fantasy football for most (myself included) is just another reason to be counting down the days until the 2022 NFL season kicks off. The New Orleans Saints have created quite the buzz within the world of fantasy football. Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara, Chris Olave, and Jarvis Landry have all garnered attention, and should be drafted in most fantasy leagues this year.

Let’s take a look at who you should, and shouldn’t take in this year’s draft.

Because Michael Thomas is coming back from a pretty serious ankle injury and hasn’t played in almost two years, we might want to pump the brakes a...

Las Vegas oddsmakers and the national media might have doubts about the New Orleans Saints, but the local media certainly don't.

Local reporters are positively bullish on Coach Dennis Allen’s first Saints team.

My annual survey of reporters, anchors and broadcasters who regularly cover the team revealed widespread optimism for the Saints in 2022. Not one of the 26 respondents predicted a losing season. The vast majority either predicted an 11-6 or 10-7, which is well above out-of-market projections. Caesars Sportsbook has set the Saints’ over/under win total at 8 wins this season.

Texas native and former Baylor Bear Abram Smith will return home for his first professional preseason game when the New Orleans Saints are hosted by the Houston Texans on Saturday night. Smith was a priority undrafted free agent acquired earlier this offseason by the Saints.

Smith started his football career in Abilene, Texas, the hometown of Saints Assistant General Manager Jeff Ireland, where he was the best running back in school history at Abilene High School.

He then left to go to college at Baylor, where he had an interesting career on both sides of the ball. He found significant...

Adam Trautman returned to the Saints looking 'like a different guy' after injury-plagued '21

Midway through the 14th practice of training camp, New Orleans Saints tight end Adam Trautman separated from his man with a stutter step and broke free behind the secondary.

Quarterback Andy Dalton spotted Trautman running all alone and hit him in stride for an easy score. When it was done, Trautman simply jogged back to the huddle and prepared for the next play.

There’s no need to celebrate something that has been happening regularly as of late. Even Trautman’s answers about his first couple of weeks of training camp amount to the equivalent of a verbal shrug.

“I’ve been given...
