Former New Orleans Saints linebacker Kwon Alexander has been training in Miami, Florida, with Dr. Sharif "Dr. Reef" Tabbah at the Miami area's Athletix Rehab & Recovery training facility. Tabbah is the strength and conditioning coach who has worked with running backs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram.


Tabbah described the exercises that Alexander was performing as "working on resistant triple extension, post Achilles repair. The goal of the exercise is to strengthen the calf, and Achilles under load while simulating the triple extension position of linear acceleration."

The Who Dat Nation is a big-tent fandom, with no shortage of famous supporters. From actors and athletes to politicians and musicians, celebrity Saints fans come from all walks of life — and quite a few of them hail from New Orleans and the communities surrounding it around the Gulf South. Like all fans, their following might be more casual or committed from one to the next, but they’re all fond of the black and gold. Here’s a list of 25 of the Saints’ most famous fans, ordered alphabetically by their last names:

Cliff Bleszinski

A prominent developer and producer in the video gaming industry famous for his work with the “Unreal” and “Gears of War” franchises, Bleszinski picked up his Saints support from his wife, who is from New Orleans. He’s also known to throw a bone to the Steelers; a personal friend is also a minority owner of the black and yellow. But he credits the Saints’ Super Bowl XLIV win with sparking his love of the sport.

Jimmy Buffett

Buffett is a common sight at the Superdome and around New Orleans; he performed the national anthem before the 2018 NFC title game and continued to harangue the NFL for its bungled no-call at Jazz Fest the following year.

Justin Fields is can’t-miss for Sean Payton and Saints if he ends up falling

College football is an interesting beast. It’s so common to see players dominate at that level and then go on to disappoint in the NFL that nearly everyone gets second-guessed before the draft. If that happens to Ohio State’s Justin Fields in the draft, it would be a huge boon for the Saints and Sean Payton, and they would be remiss not to take him at 28.

While it’s unlikely, there’s already been talk about Fields dropping. Dan Orlovsky made headlines on the Pat McAfee show by relaying information he got from sources about Fields being a “last one in first one out” type player, comments for which Orlovsky caught a lot of fire online. Fields is the latest black quarterback to suffer questions about his work ethic in weeks and months preceding the draft, but the evidence just isn’t there.

A good example of Fields’ preparation came this season against Northwestern in the Big 10 Championship Game — a game where he actually struggled but had a good gameplan for. Northwestern was content to sit back and play a quarters defense, which Fields was able to shred early on with short passes.

ESPN’s Mike Greenberg Has Bold Prediction For 2021 NFL Draft

With the NFL Draft just a few weeks away, ESPN analyst Mike Greenberg unleashed a bold prediction on this Friday’s edition of Get Up.

Greenberg predicted that one team will trade into the back half of the first round to select Stanford quarterback Davis Mills.

“I believe that some team in the NFL is going to trade back into the bottom of the first round, as we’ve seen happen before, to take Davis Mills, the quarterback from Stanford,” Greenberg said. “I think he’s the guy, ultimately, teams thinking long-term project will say he has the most upside and they will want that fifth year.”

ESPN draft analyst Matt Miller had an interesting response to Greenberg’s prediction.

“I don’t even know if it would have to be a team trading back here,” Miller said. “I think you can look at the New Orleans Saints sitting right there at the end of the first round.”

The Saints have 8 picks in the NFL draft. Who are the best ever selected in those spots?

  • News source: BY LUKE JOHNSON | Staff writer
  • Replies: 0
Could the New Orleans Saints snag a future Hall of Famer with the 28th overall pick? Or maybe at No. 60 a foundational player whose name will one day be a part of franchise lore?

Both outcomes are possible, if NFL draft history can be repeated.

The Saints are currently armed with eight picks in the 2021 draft, including four in the top 105. Let us (foolishly!) assume for this exercise that the Saints are going to keep each of those eight picks to ask this question: Who are some of the best players ever to be selected at pick Nos. 28, 60, 98, 105, 133, 218, 229 and 255?

Sean Payton to be played by Kevin James in film

METAIRIE, La. -- The "King of New Orleans"?

Saints coach Sean Payton will be portrayed by comic actor Kevin James in an upcoming Netflix movie titled, "Home Team." The movie is being produced by Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions.

As NBC's Peter King first reported, the movie will be based on how Payton wound up serving as an assistant coach on his son Connor's sixth-grade football team in the Dallas area while he was suspended by the NFL in 2012 over the "Bountygate" scandal.

Payton told ESPN that he believes the movie will have a "humorous Adam Sandler" spin and will be more...

Why doesn't Alvin Kamara spend his NFL money? Lessons from mom and peanut butter sandwiches

Alvin Kamara bought some chicken wings after landing his rookie signing bonus from the New Orleans Saints. But that's it, he hasn't spent a dime of that money since.

And that's true of all the star running back's football money over his four seasons in the NFL, despite signing a lucrative, $75 million extension before the 2020 season.

So how does the 25-year-old fund his far-from-overstated lifestyle? Endorsement money, as he explained to host Andrew Hawkins on a recent episode of Uninterrupted's show "Kneading Dough."

“So, OK, boom. I get drafted, the numbers start coming like signing...

Maybe you have heard the statistics about professional athletes losing entire fortunes or maybe you saw the ESPN 30-for-30 film Broke, in which several retired NFL players candidly dished on their financial woes post retirement. The fact is 78% of NFL players either “go bankrupt or are severely stressed financially within two years after retirement.”

That’s why stories like this one from CNBC, are refreshing and uplifting to hear. In an interview Alvin Kamara gave on the Uninterrupted’s Kneading Dough series, the star running back revealed he hasn’t spent a dime from either his rookie...

Like long-time NFL tight end Rob Gronkowski, four-year veteran running back Alvin Kamara has found a way to pay his bills without touching his football money.

Appearing on Uninterrupted’s Kneading Dough series, Kamara said that he has not yet spent any of the money he has earned playing pro football.

“I got my signing bonus, I went and got some wings, and I was like, ‘Man, I’m not spending any of this money.’ . . . I still have not spent $1 of my football money — new money or rookie contract money,” Kamara said, via Bleacher Report.

A moment of New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton's career is now going to be immortalized in film, and it might not be one of the moments you're thinking of.

Filming of the Netflix movie "Home Team" is set to begin this year, and it chronicles the time Payton coached his son Connor's youth football team after the NFL suspended him for his role in the Bountygate scandal. Actor Kevin James is set to play Payton in the film.

NFL columnist Peter King gave a brief outline of the plot in his weekly Football Morning in America column, though news of the film's production has been public since...

With the NFL draft approaching at the end of this month, teams are hopeful that they select the right mix of players that can potentially change their franchise’s fortune.

Kevin James to play Sean Payton in movie based on 2012 Bountygate suspension

Nine years ago, a gross miscarriage of NFL justice carried Saints coach Sean Payton out of the NFL for a year. During that year, he helped coach his son’s youth football team.

And there’s a show, that’s a show. Or at least a movie. From Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions, Home Team stars Kevin James as Payton, via Peter King of Football Morning in America.

King writes that Payton recently read the script and made some corrections. Filming starts later this year; the movie will land on Netflix.

All the NFL owners meet last week to discuss 11 new proposed rule changes. There were many different proposed changes but the main proposals that have a chance of success were expanding jersey numbers for certain skill positions, various overtime rule changes, and the addition of an eighth official. For any of these proposals to be officially approved, they need 75% (24) of the owners votes. NFL teams and the Competition Committee submit proposals every offseason to try and better the league, with all proposals voted on in the upcoming owners meeting.

Saints counting on sophomore surge from Cesar Ruiz, Zack Baun, Adam Trautman

METAIRIE, La. -- The 2021 NFL draft will be critical for the New Orleans Saints after the salary cap forced them to slash their roster depth this offseason.

The development of last year’s draft class might be even more important.

The Saints’ Class of 2020 was small because of multiple trades -- and it didn’t produce much. First-round guard/center Cesar Ruiz battled some inconsistency after switching from his college position of center to right guard and starting 11 games, including the playoffs. Third-round linebacker Zack Baun and fourth-round tight end Adam Trautman played even smaller...
