Not only are Saints players getting a break from the heat in New Orleans; they also enjoyed a much lighter workout than yesterday on day 22 of training camp. About halfway into the 2nd joint practice with the Chargers, both teams took off their shoulder pads and went the rest of the way in shells & shorts. Seven Saints were not present for the workout:

LB Alex Anzalone

TE Josh Hill

TE Alizé Mack

OL Ethan Greenidge

DL Geneo Grissom

DB Saquan Hampton

CB / RS Marcus Sherels

For a 2nd straight day fullback Michael Burton was in attendance, but he was not dressed and did not participate.

Saints will add a quarterback after cuts, but who?

Since J.T. Barrett was let go, the Saints have had three quarterbacks on their roster. That’s typical, but not for them with the current lineup.

By Roy Anderson | WhoDatDish

The Saints have had four quarterbacks on their roster for the past two years and it would seem natural that they would get back to that point in the very near future. They’ve only had three on the roster since releasing J.T. Barrett on Aug 1.

Most NFL teams will carry three quarterbacks. That’s a starter, his backup and one on the practice squad. The Saints have been keeping four because Taysom Hill is in the mix. He could play quarterback, but there are the things he does on special teams and the ways in which he’s used in the offense that makes his role very different. For the Saints, it’s really more like three quarterbacks plus one.

For the past few years, the Saints have had either Chase Daniel or Teddy Bridgewater backing up Brees and either Garrett Grayson or J.T. Barrett on the practice squad. It’s probable the Saints will add a quarterback to the roster on Aug 30 when teams begin cutting loose players to trim their rosters down from 90 to 53.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver situation dire heading into Week 3

The New Orleans Saints were outplayed in every way against the Carolina Panthers in Week 2’s 26-7 loss. Sure, there were exigent circumstances that contributed to the loss. Eight coaches were sidelined due to COVID-19 and Marshon Lattimore and C.J. Gardner-Johnson were late scratches, leaving Paulson Adebo on an island with D.J. Moore all game.

But one issue was within the team’s control: The Saints don’t have a D.J. Moore. They don’t even have a Brandon Zylstra. The Saints’ wide receiving corps has been utterly toothless, catching 11 passes for 164 yards and two touchdowns. Presumed No...

Saints not favored to beat Patriots in week's 2nd-lowest over/under

What are we in for when the New Orleans Saints match up with the New England Patriots? Tipico Sportsbook isn’t counting on a barn burner, posting their second-lowest over/under of the week (42.5). Only one game is expected to feature a lower scoring output when the Jets and Broncos kick off (41.5).

And Tipico has the Patriots as home favorites, but only barely. New England is favored by 2.5 points over the visiting Saints, having scored just 16 points in Week 1 and 25 points against the Jets in Week 2. Mac Jones’ offense is hardly a high-flying unit. Can New Orleans capitalize on that...

The NFL has announced that beginning with the 2021 season, Super Wild Card Weekend (January 15-17, 2022) will conclude with a game on Monday night.

The NFL expanded the playoffs last season for the first time since 1990, adding a third Wild Card team in each conference and in the process creating “Super Wild Card Weekend” – three Wild Card games on Saturday and three games on Sunday. With the addition of a Monday night game to the 2021 playoffs, Super Wild Card Weekend will now have two Wild Card games on Saturday (4:35 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. ET), three on Sunday (1:05 p.m., 4:40 p.m., and...

Saints Week 3 Power Rankings: Saints suffer drops across the board after being smothered by Panthers

The best way to describe the New Orleans Saints is to keep things very simple. In Week 1, they were extremely good in a 38-3 laugher over the Green Bay Packers. In Week 2, they were remarkably bad in a 26-7 walloping at the hands of the Carolina Panthers.

Power rankers don’t quite know what to do with the Saints. After many people put them in the Top 5 after Week 1, most have them in the late teens post Week 2. Only Sports Illustrated managed to show any kind of restraint after bumping them up to No. 12 post Week 1. Perhaps the Saints’ Week 3 matchup with the New England Patriots can shed...

The New Orleans Saints go into their third straight road game to face the New England Patriots. Yes, the first game of the year was technically a home game, but the Saints have not been in Louisiana since the preseason.

Injuries are beginning to dissipate so expect the Saints to put a better foot forward this week than last. Here are some key matchups to the game which could decide the winner of this matchup in...

DraftKings DFS Plays for NFL Week 3

Last week’s recommendations and their DraftKings points:

Last week was definitely a lineup to forget. Mike Evans was the only good call. Jefferson, Trautman, and Williams were all in bad or close games. The Broncos could not run away with the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars somehow. This limited Javonte William’s late game production. Adam Trautman was completely shut down by the injuries to the Saints and their lack of coaches. Van Jefferson was stopped in Indianapolis as the Colts found a way to play defense. These early-year lineups can be risky, as shown last week. In week three...

New Orleans Saints at New England Patriots: Series history, notes and Jameis Winston

Ahhh, Bill Belichick. Like so many other teams, the Saints have not had a whole lot of success against the greatest coach ever to patrol an NFL sideline.

Not only has the Black and Gold not had recent success, they have only defeated New Englad four times, although three of those victories have come on the road.

Let’s go through the past, which could help you figure out the future:

Saints: Last year’s loss to Green Bay ended the Saints’ three-game winning streak in Week 3, as they had defeated Seattle in 2019, Atlanta in 2018 and Carolina in 2017 – all on the road. … Despite last week’s...

Alvin Kamara was speaking for himself, but he was confident the rest of the team felt the same way: The cockiest version of the New Orleans Saints is the one that is coming off of a loss.

That is where the Saints currently stand, preparing to take on the New England Patriots after a 26-7 setback to the Carolina Panthers last week. Some use the word humbling to describe such a defeat, but that’s not how Kamara sees it. This, he believes, is where the team’s ego comes in.

“We take pride in being able to win games and not lose very often,” Kamara said. “I take pride in that. I don’t see us...

Cam Jordan laments enhanced quarterback protections

For decades, defensive players have complained about the protections afforded to quarterbacks. It likely will continue for decades to come.

Saints defensive end Cam Jordan, who entered the league as a first-round pick in 2011, chimed in during a Thursday session with reporters about the changes he has seen during his time in the league.

“Quarterbacks practice with red jerseys on in practices,” Jordan said. “At this point, they’re going to have red jerseys on in games as well. That is just the game we play in at this point. We might as well attach a flag to their hips and go off that. But...

VIDEO: In 'At the Book,' Carville barks, Devin tries to stay hot with picks

The theme of this week’s “At the Book” show on Bet.NOLA.com was trying to keep hot picks rolling.

James Carville has been so good — 11-5 against the spread in his first two weeks — that none of players in our “Cashin’ In With Carville” game are ahead of him after two weeks.

That will change sooner or later, Carville warned, but he said he’ll enjoy the hot streak as long as he can.

To that end, Carville barked — literally — for underdogs in five of his six picks this weekend. Check out the video at

Saints Cam Jordan: Can't 'play with fear' after racking up penalties in Week 2

The New Orleans Saints defense racked up 79 yards in penalties last week against Carolina, 75 of which were a result of two roughing the passer penalties and three unnecessary roughness calls.

And Saints defensive end Cam Jordan took exception to a few of those calls.

"Quarterbacks have red jerseys on in practices and at this point they’re going to have red jerseys on during games as well," Jordan said. "That’s just the game we’re playing at this point. We might as well just attach a flag to their hips and go off that.
