Mark Ingram gone and will be missed, but Saints know the show must go on

The music blared during the stretching portion of the Saints' organized team activities Thursday, just like it always does during practice.

But this time, there was no Mark Ingram around dancing to the music or yelling out wisecracks to his teammates.

The black and gold No. 22 jersey now belongs to a rookie defensive back instead of the former Heisman Trophy-winning running back who donned it for the past eight seasons in New Orleans.

Ingram is about 1,100 miles away, playing in Baltimore after signing with the Ravens in free agency.

"He was our heart and soul, a guy that we all loved being around," quarterback Drew Brees said. "He's a guy who I looked forward to seeing the most coming into the facility every day. You're always disappointed when all of a sudden you're not together anymore. But it's not the first time that guys retire or move on or whatever it may be. I think you just have to be appreciative for the time you had together."

Jared Cook can provide large presence for New Orleans Saints offense

Literally, you can’t miss him.

Jared Cook almost towers above his teammates; the 6-foot-5, 254-pound tight end seemingly has been shorted an inch or two on his official bio.

Whether the free agent signee will make an equally impressive presence on the New Orleans Saints offense remains to be seen, but the feeling is that he’ll provide an element to the Saints that has been missing for a few seasons.

“It’s always been a very tight end-friendly offense,” Cook said Thursday, May 23, “and I just thought this was a great place for me to come and extend my career and come and shine for a little bit.”

New Orleans is eager to learn just how much shine the 11-year veteran has remaining. His previous two seasons with the Raiders – 68 catches for 896 yards and six touchdowns in 2018, and 54 catches for 688 yards and two scores in ’17 – have been the best combined two-year stretch of his career in catches and yards, and the second-best in touchdowns.

With an average ticket price of $322, according to data from StubHub, the 2019 matchup is trending to be the most expensive of any of the five previous regular season meetings between the two franchises dating back to 2010.

That number is on pace to easily outstrip the $271 average...

The Edge: Saints vs. 49ers — Assessing how New Orleans, San Francisco stack up

The New Orleans Saints and the San Francisco 49ers, despite playing at noon on Sunday, have one of the biggest games on Sunday.

Both teams are 10-2 heading into this one and playoff seeding is on the line.

The Saints currently have the No. 1 seed, if things were to end now, and the 49ers are at No. 5, due to some tiebreaker scenarios.

For the Saints, this marks the fewest combined losses ever for New Orleans and its opponent in December.

On a grander scale, this...

Saints kicker Wil Lutz has been 'all good' since mid-season blip on the radar

It would not really be fair to say Wil Lutz hit a skid in his 2019 season, but there was that one uncharacteristic blip in the radar.

Chicago’s Soldier Field is a notoriously difficult place to kick, and to compound matters, Lutz never felt right during warmups. The New Orleans Saints kicker made everything he attempted inside of 40 yards against the Bears in Week 7, but pushed a 42-yarder wide right and came up short from 52. He then missed his first attempt the...

If the New Orleans Saints wished to sneak tight end Dan Arnold back onto their practice squad, their hopes were dashed Thursday afternoon.

The Arizona Cardinals claimed the second-year tight end off waivers after the Saints released him Wednesday to make room for linebacker Manti Te'o.

Arnold appeared in two games for the Saints this season, one of which came against the Cardinals in Week 8. He recorded his only two catches of the season in that contest, gaining...

Saints coach Sean Payton said after quarterback-of-all-trades Taysom Hill had a big night against the Falcons that the team probably should use Hill even more. 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan is bracing for it.

“He’s a factor every week for them whether it’s at quarterback or any of the positions except for O-Line is I think the only one I haven’t seen him play,” Shanahan told reporters earlier this week. “He’s an unbelievable player on special teams. There’s no doubt...

No updated timetable for Saints G Andrus Peat, but he's 'feeling good'

Andrus Peat's 4-inch long scar is hard to miss.

The 16 stitches are still visible in the middle of his right forearm from the surgery he had three weeks ago in Houston.

But that's progress, considering the New Orleans Saints' starting left guard is no longer toting around a cast.

"It wasn't that bad, this one, compared to my leg," Peat said of his latest surgery. "That was way worse."

Peat's leg surgery was in the 2017 season, and that's not the only playing...
