Taylor Stallworth spends most of his time on the gridiron trying to get to the opposing team backfield in a hurry. But the New Orleans Saints' undrafted rookie free agent out of South Carolina spends his personal time in the kitchen.

"I have a passion for cooking," Stallworth said. "I'm from the south. I'm from right around the corner, Mobile, Ala., so I know about all the crawfish and all that. But something that people don't know about me really nobody knows about me."

Sean Payton says keeping Brandon Coleman ‘part of the plan’

By James Parks

The New Orleans Saints underwent some profound change at the wide receiver position in the 2018 offseason, signing slot presence Cameron Meredith away from the Chicago Bears, letting Willie Snead go free to the Baltimore Ravens, and re-signing trusted reserve option Brandon Coleman.

Head coach Sean Payton says the retention of Coleman and the departure of Snead were not related, and that he expected that the organization would keep Coleman for what will be his fifth NFL season.

“It was part of the plan,” Payton...

ATLANTA -- Sometimes simple tells the story. The New Orleans diplomats stumping for Super Bowl 2024 hopes their slogan tells the story for the city and the event.

"NOLA 2024/7 Super Bowl" will be the theme of the Wednesday morning presentation spearheaded by the New Orleans Saints and the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation, including a simple, yet sharp logo.

"We always kind of have fun with the bid themes," said Sam Joffray, vice president of the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation...

New Orleans looks to host Super Bowl in 2024

NEW ORLEANS — The NFL is on the verge of returning the Super Bowl to New Orleans.

The league has been negotiating with the Crescent City for six months, inviting it to make a presentation to host the 2024 Super Bowl in front of the league owners Wednesday in Atlanta.

The presentation is part of a new format in which the NFL asks one city to negotiate to be the site of a specific Super Bowl rather than having multiple cities compete for individual games. New Orleans, which last hosted a Super Bowl in 2013, lost out in its last two bids under the old format.

Fan favorite Michael Mauti's release came as something of a surprise last week, particularly since it happened only a month after the veteran linebacker re-signed a contract with his hometown in free agency.

Mauti has been a key part of the special-teams units in New Orleans and an emergency linebacker on defense for three seasons, but the veteran got caught in a numbers game.

New Orleans felt like it had enough players at linebacker; the Saints also cut Adam Bighill...

Signing Jay Bromley, Michael Ola gave Saints veterans at positions that can be 'hard to find'

New Orleans used its rookie minicamp in part to land veterans at positions where veteran help is few and far between once the games begin.

Former Giants nose tackle Jay Bromley and well-traveled tackle Michael Ola earned their right to sign with the way they played among dozens of rookies.

"Both guys we have a vision for," Payton said. "Both of those guys play in the offensive and defensive lines, positions that are hard to find once the season gets started."...

The New Orleans Saints now have all of their 2018 draft picks under contract.

The team announced Monday that third-round pick Tre'Quan Smith signed his four-year rookie deal.

Smith, a wide receiver from Central Florida, was the last remaining draft pick to sign his deal. The other six draft picks, including first-rounder Marcus Davenport, signed their rookie contracts two weeks ago before rookie minicamp. ...

Alvin Kamara fine with his role, plans 'to do more' in Year 2

Alvin Kamara got almost everything he could want out of his rookie season.

The Offensive Rookie of the Year trophy was only a part of it. Kamara emerged as a bona fide star, an electric playmaker with an oversized personality that has taken him to the Super Bowl, the NBA's All-Star Weekend, Fashion Week and the other trappings that come with being one of the NFL's up-and-coming stars.

And yet Kamara still feels like he's not sure he's arrived, at least in everyone's...

New Orleans Saints Pro Bowl wide receiver Michael Thomas admits that he is not familiar with the city of Houma.

Thomas has never been to Houma and didn’t hear much about the city until just recently.

But that is about to change.

Next week, Thomas will be making his first trip to Terrebonne Parish to serve as the guest speaker at the inaugural Best of the Bayou Preps Awards Banquet.

“I admit that I am not familiar with Houma and didn’t know about Houma until I was asked to speak at the banquet,” Thomas said. “But I am looking forward to getting to know the area and meeting Saints...

Saints might have landed 'an absolute steal' in undrafted tight end Deon Yelder

By Joel A. Erickson

Nearly all the experts believed the New Orleans Saints would target a tight end in April's draft.

For months, the mock drafts kept predicting the position to New Orleans. An obvious need existed, and the 2018 draft class was deep at tight end, full of big names like Hayden Hurst and Mike Gesicki and Dallas Goedert.

New Orleans ended up passing on the position through seven rounds of the draft. Need and name never matched up with the way the board looked in the Saints'...

By Lance Zierlein

Some players selected in the first round of the NFL draft live up to their billing, or even exceed already high expectations, right away. Marshon Lattimore and Deshaun Watson did exactly that as rookies last season. However, the norm is for players to begin at a much more modest rate as they learn their craft and continue to grow. In fact, sometimes it takes a couple seasons before a player starts to realize his potential, as we saw last season with 2015...

Carolina Panthers offense revived with new weapons

by Cody Smith

By the end of the 2017 NFL season, the Carolina Panthers offense went into the Wild Card playoff game against an explosive New Orleans Saints team with virtually no weapons. Some of those “weapons” consisted of Jonathan Stewart, Kaelin Clay, Brenton Bersin, and Russel Shepard. But just like the 2017 NFL season, those weapons are in the past, as none of them were brought back for this upcoming season. As the 2018 season gets underway in the next couple of months, the Panthers have reshaped their offense from top to bottom.

It all started when...

Mark Ingram to lose $1 million in NFL imposed suspension

By James Parks

Mark Ingram was suspended for the first four games of the 2018 regular season after the National Football League determined the running back had violated their performance enhancing drugs policy, depriving the New Orleans Saints of one half of what last season was the league’s best scoring running back duo.

Not only with Ingram’s absence cost a great deal to the Saints’ chances to repeat as NFC South champions and as the NFL’s most productive backfield, but the suspension will also have a great personal financial cost to the player himself.

Originally set to earn a base salary of $4 million to play in...

New Orleans brought back Josh LeRibeus on Monday, according to the NFL's transactions wire.

LeRibeus, a six-year veteran who joined the Saints last season after opening his career in Washington, played 218 snaps for New Orleans last fall.

Every NFL season, there are several great teams. Only the greatest of those teams, however, are remembered when the next season rolls around. As time goes by, fans typically forget about the teams that fell short of expectations and focus on the teams that captured our undivided attention.

Regardless of whether they won the Super Bowl (or even made it that far), all the teams on this list are still remembered today for their greatness.
