The New Orleans Saints are preparing for the start of 2019 NFL free agency next week, and just like every other team in the league, they have decisions to make. The Saints don’t have a lot of players jumping into free agency this year, but one big name who may test the waters is running back Mark Ingram. While he’s said he would prefer to stay in New Orleans, the Saints have other options out there and that includes Le’Veon Bell.

Mark Ingram has become an integral part of the New Orleans Saints’ offense, and his partnership with Alvin Kamara is hard to beat. The two have come about with a great duo of “Dash and Bash,” “Thunder and Lightning,” or whatever anyone wants to call it, but it works.

Antonio Brown is officially on the trading block, and the entire NFL knows that he is going to be in another uniform for next season. The Pittsburgh Steelers are going to look very different in 2019, as they will be without Brown and running back Le’Veon Bell — but no-one knows where those players will go yet. The New Orleans Saints are one team who have been mentioned in a possible trade for Brown, but what would they have to give up for him?

On Wednesday, the Pittsburgh Steelers began telling teams that a deal is expected to be in place by Friday for Antonio Brown, per ESPN‘s Adam Schefter, via Twitter. A number of teams have been mentioned as being in play for the trade, but it’s hard to know anything more than what the current rumors state.

Here Is Every Insane Thing That Taysom Hill Has Done For The New Orleans Saints This Season

The New Orleans Saints are having one of those seasons that don’t come along often for all NFL franchises, but everyone has had to do their part. Drew Brees has led an offense littered with talent such as Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas. Cameron Jordan pilots a defense filled with guys like Marshon Lattimore and Demario Davis. Everyone has their position to excel at, but then, there’s Taysom Hill.

Hill is only in his second year in the NFL, and his first year didn’t register any stats even though he played in five games for the Saints. This season, he played in all 16 regular season games and he was also in for a number of plays against the Philadelphia Eagles in the Divisional Round of the 2019 NFL playoffs.

If anyone were to look at his stats for this season, they wouldn’t see anything that is overly impressive right off the bat. Checking out his numbers on ESPN, his numbers are actually quite low, but everyone has to remember that he is technically a quarterback and playing behind Drew Brees.

The answer to who will be leading Sunday's Who Dat chant in the Superdome for the Saints vs. Eagles playoff match-up was answered on social media today. Former Black & Gold running back and Reggie Bush tweeted that he and former Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma will be in attendance to fire up the crowd.

Both Bush & Vilma played together on the 2009 Super Bowl team and can hopefully bring some good luck to this year's squad. Kickoff in the Dome is at 3:40pm Sunday on WWL Saints radio. The winner advances to the NFC titel game and gets one step closer to the Super Bowl in Atlanta.

Saints vs. Eagles: Saints are 11-1 with Carl Cheffers at referee

The New Orleans Saints have had good luck with NFL referee Carl Cheffers officiating games, and he’s been assigned to their upcoming game against the Philadelphia Eagles in the divisional round of the 2018 NFL playoffs. He was the referee when New Orleans beat the Eagles 48-7 in their Week 11 meeting, as chance would have it, and the Saints’ all-time record with Cheffers overseeing the action is even better: New Orleans is 11-1 with Cheffers at referee. If you’re feeling superstitious, knock on wood.

Now, sure, that’s neat. But it’s not like Cheffers has acted with outright favoritism to the Saints: in 12 games with the referee, the Saints have committed 89 penalties (7.4 per game), racking up 859 penalty yards (71.6 per game, and 9.6 yards per penalty). Compare that with their opponents, who have been flagged 91 times (7.6 per game) to the tune of 718 yards (just 59.8 per game and only 7.8 yards per penalty).

Sean Payton always seems to find unique ways to motivate his players. On Monday, 3 armed guards brought $201,000 with the Lombardi Trophy on top of it. Payton told the room that they could all have the cash and the trophy IF….they win three more games.

“If you saw that money in front of you, you would get excited to,” smiled defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins. “If we get it done, I need it in twenties all in a duffle bag delivered to my front door.”

NFL players receive a $29,000 bonus for divisional playoff games and $54,000 for conference championship games. The Super Bowl champ receives an additional $118,000.

New Orleans Saints Positions In Media’s NFL Power Rankings After Securing Home-Field Advantage

For those in the state of Louisiana, it’s hard to imagine a louder place than inside of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome when cheering on their New Orleans Saints. Most of the time, fans think that the media is slighting the “Bless You Boys” by not giving them the respect they deserve, but that isn’t the case in 2018. That was made especially evident on Tuesday afternoon when the NFL power rankings came out after the Week 16 action and the Saints top them all.

Ask the fans of any NFL team and they’ll usually tell you that their team isn’t respected by the major sports media outlets. Still, it’s hard for anyone to deny credit to a team that is playing really well and it is evident that ESPN, CBS Sports, and others believe the Saints are the top team in football right now.

How Long Will The Starters Play In Week 17 Vs Panthers — It’s Teddy Bridgewater’s Time

By Danny Cox, Inquisitr.Com

When the New Orleans Saints defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16, they accomplished every single regular season goal possible. The Saints are in the playoffs with a first-round bye and have home-field advantage until at least Super Bowl LIII. With no way to have their seed affected in the NFC, the starters may not end up playing the whole time which would give players like Teddy Bridgewater some time on the field.

After the Saints defeated the Steelers and secured home-field advantage, head coach Sean Payton was asked about resting his starters against the Carolina Panthers in Week 17. With the question being presented to him repeatedly, Payton finally laid it out for everyone as reported by the NFL website.

Good news, everyone! The New Orleans Saints are a step closer to the Super Bowl, having clinched home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with a 31-28 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Even better, it turns out that the Saints would be practicing from the hosting Atlanta Falcons’ team facilities. The news came on Dec. 20, when D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution shared a list of notable event sites from the Super Bowl LIII organizing committee:

If the Saints reach the Super Bowl, they would take over the Falcons team practice facility in Flowery Branch. The AFC representative will practice at Georgia Tech’s campus.
