Tyeler Davison is staying in the NFC South, but it won't be with the New Orleans Saints.

The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Saturday afternoon that Davison signed a one-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans' biggest rival. Davison reportedly visited with the Falcons earlier this week on Monday.

Davison played for the Saints for four seasons, serving as a starter for the past three. In 2018, Davison played in 14 games, starting in 12. He recorded 23 tackles, including two tackles for loss. He also had three quarterback hurries and a pair of sacks.

The Saints selected Davison in the fifth round of the 2015 draft out of Fresno State.

Drew Brees’ history vs. Saints’ 2019 opponents

The New Orleans Saints were a Super Bowl team last season, until the officials stepped in.

En route to the world championship game, the team was the victim of what has been called the worst missed penalty call in NFL history, and instead they went home early.

But that doesn’t mean the team isn’t still in a position to make another run in 2019.

Especially when considering the man they have playing quarterback.

Drew Brees has routinely established himself as the most productive and efficient passer in the league year in and year out, and over the past several months, reiterated that dominance by setting NFL records for completion percentage and becoming the all time yardage leader.

Report: Saints free agent Tyeler Davison visiting Falcons

A former New Orleans Saints starter may be going turncloak. Per a report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, free agent nose tackle Tyeler Davison is visiting the Atlanta Falcons. Atlanta has been running thin along the defensive line and could use the help.

The Saints upgraded from Davison early in free agency, signing former New England Patriots starter Malcom Brown to a three-year, $15 million contract. Davison started for the Saints at nose tackle since late in his rookie 2015 season, providing competent but unspectacular play. The Saints drafted Davison in the fifth round of that year’s draft — the Patriots picked Brown late in the first round of the same year.

Saints, Panthers watching elite offensive tackle Andre Dillard

A pair of NFC South rivals are watching an offensive tackle prospect.

The New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers had the most representatives on hand at the Washington State pro day recently to take in left tackle Aaron Dillard’s workouts, according to a report from CBS Sports’ Rob Rang.

A three star recruit, according to the industry generated 247Sports Composite, Dillard committed to WSU in 2013 and quickly emerged as one of the best pass blockers in the nation.

His college tape was so good over his 41 career games, in fact, that Dillard is now projected to be drafted as high as the middle of the first round of the NFL Draft this spring.

If so, that would pretty decisively keep the Saints out of contention for the player, given that they do not have a first round draft pick and will not make a selection until No. 62 overall.

The NFC South belonged to the New Orleans Saints for a second consecutive season in 2018, marking the first time in team history the Saints won the division title in back-to-back years.

The rest of the division experienced turmoil, though, as the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons disappointed with identical 7-9 seasons, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers finished last for the second year in a row.

As the four teams prepare for the 2019 campaign, the division still goes through New Orleans. However, the Saints need to muster up another round of mental toughness after their second heart-breaking postseason exit in as many years. But there is a silver lining, as the controversy stemming from the Saints' loss in the NFC Championship Game prompted change to the...

In 2018, the Saints finished with the best record in football despite playing a challenging schedule, but in 2019, it appears the NFC South champions will forge a somewhat easier path.

The New Orleans Saints will go into the 2019 season facing what is the 22nd most difficult schedule, or the 10th easiest overall, in the National Football League, when judging by combined records amassed by each team on the schedule from this past season, according to CBS Sports.

The Saints’ opponents had a combined 125-131 record (.488) in 2018. In 2019, the Washington Redskins will face the easiest schedule overall (.469 opponents record), while the Oakland Raiders will have the most difficult schedule (.539 opponents record).

Re-Sign Mark Ingram Or Go After Le’Veon Bell?

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.

In the spirit of free market capitalism, NFC South rivalry and a brazen attempt to get cheaper hot dogs at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome concession stands, I am compelled to report that the Atlanta Falcons are gaining a competitive advantage on our beloved New Orleans Saints.

The Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta announced this week that it is cutting prices on five popular food items by 11 percent.

Hot dogs will cost $1.50, the specialty “ATL Bud Burger” will cost $7.50, a waffle ice cream cone and pretzel bits will each go for $4.50.

The Atlanta stadium was reported to have the lowest concession prices among major team sports when it opened in 2017, including a "bottomless soda" that comes with free and unlimited refills, at $2.
