There are things you don’t do, like choosing to tug Superman’s cape or pull the mask off the Lone Ranger. You also don’t challenge New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan to a race.

That’s what a few children and young teens discovered at an event ahead of the 2020 Pro Bowl when they lined up for a sprint against the 6-foot-4, 287-pound sack artist. Some NFL stars would take the opportunity to let the kids enjoy the spotlight for a moment by throwing the race. But Jordan treated it like a competition.

At least he gave them a second’s head start. But by the time Jordan burst out of his stance, it was no contest, leaving all three of his challengers in the dust.

2019 Saints Season in Review: Quarterback Taysom Hill

We continue our season reviews at Saints Wire with New Orleans Saints third-string quarterback and pending restricted free agent, Taysom Hill. In 2019, Hill saw an expanded role on the offense from his 2018 production, and continued to be a stalwart on the special teams unit.

Hill quickly gained with the fan base in 2018 when he was utilized in a utility-type role, rather than his conventional position. In 2019, that role became even more prominent earning him the nickname of “Swiss Army Knife”.

Level of play in 2019


Hill cannot be judged solely on his quarterbacking skills in 2019. If that’s the case, his 105 passing yards seem quite lackluster. Instead, what is most impressive are his receiving touchdowns on the season. His seven receiving touchdowns (including the playoffs) put him ahead of players such as Julio Jones, Julian Edelman, and Zach Ertz. It also proved that he became a legitimate weapon for Drew Brees to use on the offense.

The Pro Bowl might not be the most competitive event the NFL has to offer, yet it does provide an opportunity for players to spend quality time with each other. For Drew Brees and his family, it means a chance to meet some of the young stars reshaping the game of football.

With the Pro Bowl set for this weekend in Orlando, the future Hall of Famer is getting his son Baylen prepared to meet Lamar Jackson.

He shared a photo of Baylen holding a Ravens helmet with the following caption:
“Lamar, my son Baylen is looking for you at Pro Bowl this week. You are his guy! He’s pumped to meet you.”

Saints Injured Key Players will impact Offseason Decisions

The New Orleans Saints entered the 2019 season with a roster considered among the deepest in the National Football League. That depth was tested with a series of injuries during the year, especially on the defensive side. The Saints persevered most of the season, as evidenced by their 13-3 record and status among the league’s Super Bowl favorites entering the playoffs. Those expectations ended with a 26-20 home playoff upset to the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings exploited the weaknesses on the Saints roster in that game, leading to several questions heading into the offseason.

New Orleans enters the 2020 off-season not only attempting to shore up their shortcomings but also maintain the strength of a roster that is still considered a title contender. The Saints will add talent through both the draft and free agency while also addressing several of their own free agents. They will also get a few players back into the fold that weren’t a factor during this past season because of injuries. Here is some of the returning talent that will affect the Saints' decisions this offseason.

The Saints’ Trey Hendrickson took a while to get going this season due to a lingering neck injury, but in his third season, the young defensive end had his best season to date as a rotational pass rusher. While his role was still fairly niche, Hendrickson logged 4.5 sacks and a forced fumble for the Saints, while looking generally more disruptive while he was in the game.
