We’ve heard Sean Payton talk numerous times about the various offenses he studies across the league and how he watches every touchdown scored every week for new ideas.

Does he do the same with any college offenses?

The coach said he pays attention to that game, but not at the same level he does the NFL. But he said that’s why he has people like offensive analyst Jim Chaney on the staff.

“He’ll have some fricking play from Vanderbilt or Mississippi State, or there will be some (other play), and we try to apply it,” Payton said. “There’s sometimes where we come up with something, there’s a lot of creative minds, and they don’t have to be just in the NFL or college. Quite honestly, they very well could be at the high school level.”

The influence that college offenses are having on the NFL has grown substantially over the last several years. There are several reasons for this, but a lot of it has to do with technology and how readily available film from those games has become. ...

Jeff Duncan: The Saints will show Monday night why they're the best road team in the NFL

METAIRIE, La. - The New Orleans Saints find themselves in an unusual position in their game at Seattle on Monday night: They’re favored.

The Saints’ 5-point spread marks just the second time they’ve been favored in 11 trips to the Emerald City.

The other time was the 2010 NFC Wild Card playoffs, when the Saints were 11-point favorites against the 7-9 Seahawks and were upset 41-36 in the infamous “Beast Mode” game.

Historically, the Saints have struggled in their infrequent trips to the Pacific Northwest. They’re won just four of 10 games all-time in Seattle, which is widely recognized as one of the most hostile road environments in the league.

And Lumen Field figures to be particularly hostile for the prime-time kickoff next week. The Seahawks are a desperate team, having lost two straight games and four of their past five. They're not used to losing in Seattle, and the Seahawks can’t afford to fall too much farther behind the Cardinals (6-0) and Rams (5-1) in the NFC West division race. ...

Jets Insider Pegs Saints as Potential Trade Partners: ‘Wouldn’t Surprise Me’

The New York Jets are going to continue to hear their name brought up in trade talks as we approach the deadline on November 2.

Whether fairly or unfairly, this team has been labeled a seller by the masses, and NFL teams are like vultures flying over a rotting carcass. If they think they can get a deal and swipe a key piece to improve their title chances, they’ll do it.

There is a lot of speculation if the Jets will be sellers at the deadline. If history is any indication, general manager Joe Douglas will certainly answer the phone if it rings.

One team that could be calling the green and white sooner rather than later is the New Orleans Saints.

“I think the Saints should consider trading for Jamison Crowder or Denzel Mims,” said ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini on the Flight Deck podcast. “They need wide receivers and Crowder is a polished guy that could step right in. Mims is more of a long-term project but that wouldn’t surprise me if the Saints come knocking looking for some wideouts.”

New Orleans simply don’t have the horses to compete at wide receiver:

  • Chris Hogan
  • Marquez Callaway
  • Lil’Jordan Humphrey
  • Ty Montgomery
  • Kenny Stills
  • Deonte Harris
They also have a pair of talented wide receivers who are banged up in Tre’Quan Smith (injured reserve) and Michael Thomas (physically unable to perform list). It sounds like Thomas is still “a few weeks away.” So they could obviously use a ton of help in that department. ...

The NFL season is on Chapter 7, and teams are starting to find their identities as they trudge along each week. Some teams understand that they are not among the league's elite, while others are still trying to make the case that they belong in that conversation. Injuries have been a constant variable among teams this season.

Entering Week 7, many teams are having to manage their rosters after learning of ailments to their players. Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is dealing with many issues to his left shoulder, which kept him out of Thursday's 17-14 victory over the Denver...

METAIRIE, La. -- After a brief return to the NFL this season with the New Orleans Saints, receiver Chris Hogan decided to retire.

The 10-year veteran, who won two Super Bowls with the New England Patriots earlier in his career, was officially placed on the reserve/retired list Saturday.

Hogan had already flirted with retirement earlier this year, when he actually switched careers and joined the Premier Lacrosse League. But the Saints lured him back in late July, and he earned a roster spot with the team - catching four passes for 41 yards and a touchdown in five games.

Gwendolyn Jenkins got her phone call 10 years ago.

Ralonda Johnson got hers 14 months ago.

The words spoken on the other end of the line silenced Jenkins in 2011 the same way they silenced Johnson in 2020.


"You hear the word and you just sit there in shock," Jenkins recalls about that Halloween day in 2011. "On one hand, I was told not to worry because it wasn't invasive. But on the other hand, it's cancer. When you hear that, how do you not get worried?"

Johnson felt pretty much the same way when her phone rang just as she was walking out the door to take her daughter...

The 3-2 New Orleans Saints travel to Seattle to face the 2-4 Seahawks on Monday Night Football to wrap up week 7 of NFL action.

New Orleans comes off their bye week with a winning record despite missing several players for most or all of the year so far with injuries.

Earlier this week, the Saints activated DE Marcus Davenport, LB Kwon Alexander, CB Ken Crawley, K Wil Lutz, and WR Tre'Quan Smith from injured reserve.

The Seahawks listed running back Alex Collins and defensive end Darrell Taylor as questionable for Monday night’s game against the Saints, but head coach Pete Carroll sounded surer than that about having both players in the lineup.

Collins missed practice time this week, but Carroll said, via John Boyle of the team’s website, Collins “looked good” on Saturday and is ready to play against New Orleans. If he can’t play, the Seahawks could activate Rashaad Penny after designating him from return from injured reserve earlier this week.

Taylor looked seriously injured when he was taken off...

Wide receiver Chris Hogan appeared to be done with playing football when he signed to play professional lacrosse earlier this year, but he reversed course to sign with the Saints this summer.

Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports that Hogan informed the team of his decision earlier this week after going home to be with his pregnant wife.

Hogan played in all five Saints games this season and caught four passes for...

Neither starting center Erik McCoy nor starting left tackle Terron Armstead has a designation, so both should return to action this week.
