In early June, no news is actually not good news for some.

Tuesday delivered good news for Jimmy Garoppolo's outlook entering the 2023 season. Not to be outdone, Michael Thomas made a strong declaration later that day.

"We're going to be ready for training camp, fresh Day 1, out there with the team ready to go full speed, just like the old days and what everyone is used to," the Saints receiver said, via the team's official site.

This isn't the first time anyone has held high hopes regarding Thomas' outlook ahead of a new football season. But it is rather refreshing to be able to speak positively about Thomas' status as opposed to what has followed him for much of the last two offseasons. ...

Reggie Bush and Mark Ingram II were both Saints first round picks and standout running backs.

The former could be replaced by the latter in a prominent broadcast analyst job.

The New York Post reported Thursday that Bush is expected to be out at Fox Sports over a contract dispute.

Bush has been a member of the Fox Big Noon Kickoff college football show, which now could have Ingram replace him.

The Post indicates Fox Sports also spoke previously with Ingram about leaving the NFL but he decided to continue his second stint with the Saints last season.

Bush was a member of the Saints...

The NFL’s social media team just released a fantastic new video of a group of rookies attempting to draw their team’s logo from memory. This is something they’ve done in the past and it never fails to make us laugh, but this year might have been better than ever.

You’ll recognize some familiar faces as two brand new New Orleans Saints rookies were called upon to give their takes on the classic fleur-de-lis. Kendre Miller’s confused and disappointed face was hilarious as he realized his mistakes in what looked like a swapping of the colors.

Jake Haener called his a “rough draft” and...

Saints hope offseason moves address last season's poor showing in the red zone

The New Orleans Saints offense last season had their struggles, that’s no secret, but when looking closer there was one specific weakness: red zone offense. With Andy Dalton leading the offense, they had troubles closing the deal with touchdowns.

Just look at the numbers: the Saints’ red zone touchdowns percentage dropped from 58.93% in 2021 to 52.08% in 2022. Back in 2020, they were converting at a 71.62%. They finished 21st in the league last season, an unacceptable ranking if you expect to compete, after ranking 18th the year before and fifth-best in 2020.

A large number of their...

The connection between New Orleans Saints safeties Marcus Maye and Tyrann Mathieu has only strengthened since the 2022 season concluded, and the secondary duo was already starting to find their groove toward the end of it anyway.

NFC South roundtable: Second-year breakout candidates in 2023

We sat down with the managing editors at Falcons Wire (Matt Urben), Panthers Wire (Anthony Rizzuti), and Bucs Wire (River Wells) to make our preseason picks for second-year breakout candidates in 2023, and it’s an interesting array of responses from each team. The New Orleans Saints are hoping their 2022 rookie class can build on some late-season momentum, while other teams like the Atlanta Falcons are just hoping their players can perform well enough to justify the investments made in them.

And that doesn’t even get into what’s going on with the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay...

Drew Brees reached out to Cowboys OC after Brandin Cooks trade

Drew Brees and Brian Schottenheimer go way back — before Brees became the legendary New Orleans Saints quarterback and Schottenheimer was tabbed to become the Dallas Cowboys’ missing piece from Super Bowl contention, Schottenheimer was Brees’ quarterbacks coach on the then-San Diego Chargers.

Obviously a lot has changed over the decades since. Brees is happily retired and waiting on his well-earned selection for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and Schottenheimer is getting the Cowboys passing game up to speed as their new offensive coordinator. One major addition in Dallas he’s working...

Darren Rizzi thinks new kickoff rule will make the play more dangerous

The kickoff is one of the most exciting plays in football. The NFL has added rules to try to make that play safer over the years. As exciting as it is, it can also be one of the most violent plays as well, including some of the most frequent high speed collisions in the sport. There have been changes to blocking schemes, and we’ve seen spring football leagues try their own variations to make the play safe while keeping kickoffs exciting. The newest rule change might be detrimental to the excitement and the safety.

This latest rule change is the ball is spotted at the 25-yard line on fair...

The New Orleans Saints and Houston Texans aren’t just going to be highlighted with a national broadcast in their upcoming preseason game — they’re going to be the only show in town. The rest of the NFL will complete their exhibition series Thursday, Friday, or Saturday, but New Orleans and Houston aren’t going to play until Sunday.

And FOX Sports will be shining the bright lights on them at the Caesars Superdome. Kickoff is currently scheduled for 7 p.m. CT/8 p.m. ET on Sunday, Aug. 27.

But how often will the starters actually play? In last year’s third and final preseason game, the...

There is no shortage of some cool New Orleans Saints merchandise out there. Through the years, I have seen starter jackets, hoodies, hats, garden flags, even custom-made items like Saints door wreaths and yard art. With the explosion of online shopping that has taken over the last few years, there are plenty of places to get your hands on the latest, greatest Saints merchandise to add to your collection.

My personal favorites, for many reasons is a helmet signed by Drew Brees in 2009 and some pieces of confetti from the NFCCG in the Superdome and Super Bowl 44. That season was so...

Free agency and the 2023 NFL Draft have been pretty darn good to the New Orleans Saints, especially on defense.

Several new faces have been added to the secondary including Jonathan Abrams and Lonnie Johnson Jr. On the secondary, multiple players should be returning from substantial injuries in 2022 such as Pete Werner and D’Marco Jackson. The front line might have the most significant change from 2022 as rookies Bryan Bresee and Isaiah Foskey join newcomers Khalen Saunders and Nathan Shepherd.

Unfortunately, with all of the new signings, plenty of position battles will result in a...

PFF says Saints will win less than ten games in 2023

On Monday, PFF’s Dalton Wasserman and Jim Wyman wrote an article predicting if each team will go over or under their projected win total for 2023. The New Orleans Saints win total for 2023 is 9.5 games, and PFF doesn’t believe the Saints will hit the over.

The Saints have the easiest schedule in the league based on 2022 records. They went 7-10 last season in Dennis Allen’s first year, losing five of those games by one score. This team has drastically improved their roster, starting with the QB position where they signed four-time Pro Bowler Derek Carr. They also filled major holes on...

The 2023 offseason hasn’t just been all about new additions — quite a bit of talent has left the NFC South this spring, so we polled the managing editors at Falcons Wire (Matt Urben), Panthers Wire (Anthony Rizzuti), and Bucs Wire (River Wells) for their choice of each team’s biggest departure.

Here’s how the New Orleans Saints’ losses stack up among their peers and rivals after a lot of talented veterans hit the road this offseason (with many of them staying in the division, annoyingly):
