It is an old narrative that has been pushed around for the last several years. When will the Saints get a tight end who can give them the same production as Jimmy Graham did during his tenure? Enter Jared Cook, who was the top free agent target at his position this off-season. He brings not only the veteran presence that is being left behind by Ben Watson, but the big body receiving target the team has lacked since 2014. Not only can Cook give the team another weapon in the red zone and passing game, he also has the chance to accomplish a feat that will beneficial to both parties.

Bushrod: "I Didn't Leave The House" After NFC Championship

Jermon Bushrod reflected on the Saints' NFC Championship loss – and the non-call that cost him a chance at a second Super Bowl

The DA Show | CBS Sports Radio

Jermon Bushrod has won a Super Bowl – with the Saints, in fact. He knows what that experience feels like, and he wanted to experience it again this past season. But he didn’t – in part because of a missed call in the NFC Championship Game.

Bushrod hasn’t quite gotten over that non-call. Heck, he might never get over it.

“You’re always going to have some kind of bitterness whenever you think about it,” Bushrod said on The DA Show. “You got to understand the situation that we were in, and there’s a ton of hard work and a lot of focus that gets put into every single year. When you have an event like that happen, it’s pretty devastating for your team at that moment. But as of right now, you just got to put things into perspective and understand that we would have loved to have that opportunity – I would have loved to have that opportunity at the end of my 12th year to have a chance at a Super Bowl – but it didn’t happen. It is what it is.”

Come learn about the route that Drew Brees is deadly effecient on

By Seth Galina | Canal Street Chronicles

Last month, we looked at how the Saints use Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara as part of their weakside option package. Today we’re going to look at another way the team bullies the weakside linebacker to get completions.

Over the past 2 years, when Brees targets a wheel route from one of his running backs on the weakside of the field, he’s a perfect 10 for 10. Kamara was targeted 8 times with the remaining 2 targets going to Mark Ingram. If Sean Payton called the weakside wheel concept, the ball was going to be moving forward.

When defenses started spending too much energy trying to get tight to the running back to defend the weakside option route, the Saints answer was the wheel. They ran it 2 ways...

NEW ORLEANS —

It's a tradition unlike any other, New Orleans Saints rookies trying to eat crawfish.

The Touchdown Club held its 47th annual Super "Boil" in Harahan Wednesday.

Close to two dozen rookies took part in the event. Some of the rookies, Erik McCoy, Alize Mack and Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, weren't rookies at eating crawfish. However, the Saints Sixth-round selection, Saquan Hampton, and seventh-round selection, Kaden Elliss, had them for the very first time.

The rookies and the rest of the veterans will finish the first week of Organized Team Activities Thursday.

By Staff | The Advocate

Less than two months after the NFL changed the rule on instant replay, there could be another tweak to the rule.

In April, league owners voted to make all offensive and defensive pass interference calls, in addition to no-calls, challengeable and reviewable in NFL games.

Under the vote, which passed by a vote of 31-1, a called or non-called pass interference infraction can be challenged by coaches during the game before the two-minute mark at the end of each half. Then, in the final two minutes, the process will go to booth reviews, the same way that other reviewable calls have been in the past.

They came wearing their flag football jerseys. They came with parents wearing New Orleans Saints T-shirts and No. 9 Saints jerseys. They came ready to see quarterback Drew Brees.

Dozens of Football N America flag football players filled the auditorium at LSUS on Wednesday afternoon waiting for Brees, the co-founder of FNA.

When he arrived -- after having gone through a practice earlier in the day in Metairie -- he was met with a raucous crowd.

"We've got to have more Saints fans in Shreveport than Cowboys fans, right?'' Brees asked a crowd which responded with loud cheers.

Brees talked for several minutes about the FNA -- its origin and growth and what the future holds for flag football.

Then he took questions from local FNA players and their parents.

2019 New Orleans Saints 90-man roster: FBs, Zach Line

We continue our breakdown of the Saints 90-man training camp roster and a player by player examination of the running backs group with a look at fullback Zach Line.

By Roy Anderson | WhoDatDish

The 2019 Season will be Zach Line‘s seventh in the NFL and his third with the New Orleans Saints. Line has primarily been used as a blocking fullback. When Sean Payton came to the Big Easy in 2006, there was already an excellent fullback in place, Mike Karney, who had been with the team since 2004. What Line does is a far cry from what fullbacks used to do in a Sean Payton offense.

The running backs group is the third installment in our rundown of all of the players to make up the 90-man roster which the Saints will take into training camp. We’ve started with the wide receivers, then the tight ends and now the running backs. It’s a relatively small group consisting of Alvin Kamara, Latavius Murray, Dwayne Washington, Devine Ozigbo, A.J. Ouellette and fullbacks Zach Line...

By Sean Fazende | FOX 8

NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) -It’s a question Drew Brees is used to hearing by now. Heading into his 19th NFL season, everyone wants to know, how much longer will the 40-year old continue playing?

“I’m just going to take it one game at a time, one opportunity at a time," Brees said. " I love playing the game of football; I love my teammates. We have a lot to accomplish, and we have a great opportunity ahead of us.”

That they do.

In 2019, once again, the Saints are considered a contender and return most of the same players that came within one missed call of a Super Bowl.

By James Parks | 247 Sports

The New Orleans Saints are doing their due diligence when it comes to offensive linemen.

On Wednesday, the organization worked out three potential blockers and already decided to sign two, acquiring veteran offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse and center/guard Ryan Groy.

Newhouse was originally a fifth round draft pick by the Green Bay Packers nine years ago. He spent three seasons with that organization before signing a one year contract with the Cincinnati Bengals before the 2013 season.

He then joined the New York Giants for two seasons before being acquired by the Oakland Raiders, who signed him to a two year contract worth $3.5 million. Ultimately, the Raiders released him prior to the 2018 season.

Buffalo acquired Newhouse to play a backup role at tackle before deciding to trade him to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for a conditional seventh round draft pick in 2021.

BY MEGAN WYATT | The Advocate

Drew Brees toured the Youngsville Sports Complex on Tuesday as a potential space for his youth flag football league.

The New Orleans Saints quarterback spent the day in Lafayette for a meet and greet with children and their parents who were signing up for his Football 'N' America football league. The noncontact, coed flag football league is for children in kindergarten through 10th grade.

Brees' team reached out to the Youngsville Sports Complex on Tuesday to set up a last-minute tour, according to Youngsville Mayor Ken Ritter.

"He'd seen aerials of it online, but he was interested in another site for his flag football program," Ritter said. "It was probably the best worst tour I've ever given — just being on the spot like that — but it was a lot of fun."
