The New Orleans Saints will introduce a revamped talent lineup for the team’s 2019 preseason television broadcasts.

A three-game package will be featured on WVUE-FOX 8, also being carried on its parent company Gray Communications’ regional affiliates in six states. Joel Meyers will handle play-by-play, former Saints tackle Jon Stinchcomb and former Black and Gold linebacker Jonathan Vilma will serve as color analysts and Meghan Payton will be the sideline reporter on the broadcasts.

Since WVUE-FOX 8/Gray Communications became the team’s preseason broadcast partner in 2015, the preseason broadcast ratings have dominated both the local market and for preseason games in NFL markets. In 2018, the 30.7 rating for Saints preseason games, was easily the highest figure in an NFL market, outdistancing Buffalo (22.3). The rating also surpassed the local rating for LII in New Orleans (26.2).

METAIRIE – Taysom Hill’s ultimate career goal is to be a starting quarterback in the NFL.

He works in season and out of season to become the leader of an offense, someone who makes big play after big play.

If that day does come, it won’t be for a while. In the meantime Hill has become a key member of the New Orleans Saints, demonstrating a rare ability to make significant plays with minimal opportunities.

Quarterback is just one of numerous jobs on Hill’s game-day...

Saints' Marcus Davenport, J.T. Gray use 'My Cause, My Cleats' to tackle mental health stigma

J.T. Gray's rookie year didn't go as planned.

The special teams defensive back signed with the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent in May 2018, playing in five games before being waived. Gray cleared waivers and was re-signed to the practice squad for the remainder of the season.

He emotionally checked out. He shut people out and went to a dark place.

"Things weren't going my way, so I really didn't know what to do," Gray said.

A year later, Gray says...

Saints rookie Erik McCoy to support anti-slavery group in 'My Cause, My Cleats' campaign

Like many of his teammates and peers across the NFL, New Orleans Saints rookie center Erik McCoy will represent a cause on his feet this Sunday.

The shoes McCoy will wear against the San Francisco 49ers as part of the “My Cause, My Cleats” campaign are somewhat understated, a fairly straightforward mix of white and mottled blue with gold laces. But the message written on them is anything but.

Inscribed in neat block lettering near the ankle is “NOT FOR SALE.” That...

Even at 10-2, is this Saints offense where it needs to be? 'The answer would be no'

  • News source: BY LUKE JOHNSON | Staff writer

Priority No. 1, every week, is obvious: Do what it takes to win the game.

And the New Orleans Saints have done a lot of that so far in 2019, accomplishing that top mission 10 times in 12 tries. But the other items on the checklist deserve some scrutiny even as the most important one has consistently been crossed off.

So, even as the team enters this high-stakes Week 14 game against San Francisco with a 10-2 record, it feels fair to ask the question: Is the Saints’...

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert has never played in the Mercedes Benz Superdome.

But he's not expecting the stadium, one that he gave a new name, to be much different than any of the other six stadiums the 49ers have played in this season.

“I have not played a game in the Voodoo Dome,” Mostert said on a radio show in San Francisco. “And I have heard multiple stories about how crazy the fans are in there, and the atmosphere, and all that. How I see...

METAIRIE, La. -- The New Orleans Saints have ruled out two of their starting linebackers before Sunday's critical NFC showdown vs. the San Francisco 49ers.

Strongside linebacker A.J Klein (knee) and middle linebacker Kiko Alonso (thigh) were both injured during last Thursday's win at Atlanta. The timing is especially unfortunate because the 49ers have the NFL's No. 2-ranked rushing offense at 148.0 yards per game.

And because both teams are 10-2, Sunday's game...

It’s time to brush off the old unstoppable force vs. immovable object argument.

Who gets the upper hand this Sunday in the Superdome: The San Francisco 49ers No. 2-ranked rush offense or the New Orleans Saints’ No. 3-ranked rush defense? The outcome of the game, and therefore the top seed in the NFC, could be riding on it.

“Their scheme is fantastic and it matches their skillset,” said Saints coach Sean Payton of the 49ers running game. “The offensive line and...
