1. Marshon Lattimore getting closer:

It has been a few days since we have seen cornerback Marshon Lattimore on the practice field fully participating. After a couple of days of side work, Lattimore was back in uniform Thursday with his teammates on the defensive side of the football. Though he did not participate in walk-through or team drills, he was seen in stretch and individuals before going back to the side for conditioning and ball-catching drills while team was going on. Still limited, it was still good to see him out there, and the drills he was participating in makes you feel the ramp-up process is in motion and it shouldn't be much longer before Saints fans see him back on the field during training camp. It will be interesting to see if he will be good to go for the joint practices in Green Bay next week. ...

The Saints lost to the Houston Texans in their first preseason game.

Andy Dalton completed every one of his passes, including a pass for a touchdown, in the Saints preseason game.

While Dennis Allen criticized Abram Smith for fumbling the ball, he also offered some praise, saying that Smith “looked explosive.”

Saints Backup QB Andy Dalton Returned Home a Winner in Preseason Loss

(Houston, TX) — Andy Dalton returned to his hometown by engineering a touchdown drive on the Saints' first possession in front of family and friends inside NRG Stadium. Dalton's from Katy, a suburb of Houston that produces great football players in Texas.

I asked Dalton how did it feel to return home. "It was good. I got to see family. My family came in from New Orleans. And then my parents still live out in Katy. I got a sister and brother-in-law that live out in Katy. And my in-laws came in from Dallas. It was good to get to see a lot of people and a lot of family."

Homegrown: Dai'Jean Dixon, ex-Edna Karr and Nicholls star, making mark with hometown Saints

It’s the first thing Dai’Jean Dixon does when he puts on his No. 85 New Orleans Saints jersey before practice.

“I look at myself in the mirror and just think about the opportunity I have,” Dixon said.

For Dixon, that’s not just any old jersey he’s wearing.

It’s the jersey of his hometown team.

So the undrafted rookie from Algiers who played at perennial powerhouse Edna Karr High School and then Nicholls State doesn’t take any of this for granted.

This is a chance for him to make the NFL, just like his New Orleans born and raised cousins Kendrick Lewis and Dion Jones.

(Houston, TX) — A compelling backup running back battle is occurring in New Orleans. With Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram solidified as the top two rushers, the remaining four toted the ball on Saturday night in Houston.

DENNIS ALLEN ON SMITH

Dennis Allen said of Smith, "You can't put the ball on the ground. That's a huge negative when you when you do that." The head coach had minor praise but returned to the fumbling. "I will say this. I thought he looked explosive running the football. And I thought there was a couple of really good runs that he made. But it doesn't matter how many good...

HOUSTON — Hard. The New Orleans Saints running backs ran hard.

That was the word repeatedly used to describe the effort Abram Smith, Devine Ozigbo, Dwayne Washington and Tony Jones Jr. showed during Saturday’s 17-13 preseason loss to the Houston Texans in NRG Stadium.

“I thought they ran the ball hard,” coach Dennis Allen said. “Again, we’ll look at the tape to see exactly how they read it. But I felt like they ran the ball hard.”

What does that even mean?

“Just running physical,” Washington said. “Putting your shoulder pads down low, falling forward and trying to get those extra...

(Houston, TX) -- Making an NFL roster is a daunting task. The New Orleans Saints wide receiving corps is loaded with talent ahead of rookie wideout Dai'Jean Dixon. Besides the eventual locks in the unit with Michael Thomas, Jarvis Landry, Chris Olave, and Deonte Harty, each day at training camp is a battle.



One way to separate yourself from the other players is to perform well during preseason game action. In New Orleans' opener against Houston, Dai'Jean Dixon took a considerable step closer to improving his stock with the Saints coaching staff.

Saints vs. Texans: Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down

In their first game in over seven months, the New Orleans Saints dropped their preseason opener at the Houston Texans 17-13 on Saturday night. The final score didn't matter at all. Coaches use preseason games as part of the evaluation process.

Defensively, the Saints looked sharp and ready for the regular season opener at Atlanta on September 11. Several New Orleans starters on both sides of the ball didn't suit up at all, with most others ending their night after a series or two.

The Saints starting offense was impressive on their first and only drive, taking the ball 67 yards in 10...

If Ravens, Lamar Jackson don’t get a deal done by Week One, what happens next?

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has set a Week One deadline for getting a new contract in place with the team. Coach John Harbaugh has said a deal will get done when it gets done.

So what happens if it doesn’t get done by Week One?

Obviously, it could still get done after the first game of the regular season. It’s not a real deadline, but something imposed by Jackson. He can change his mind at any time, and the Ravens at any point could give him an offer close enough to what he wants to make it happen.

If the deal doesn’t get done before the conclusion of the 2022 season, the Ravens...

Saints preseason action is met with a few different takes the morning after the game. In the moment, there's a lot of fun and wild stuff that ends up flying out there on social media. After letting the dust settle a bit, here's a few things that we learned from the team's first exhibition game against the Texans.

Book had a relatively tough outing overall. He finished 15-of-21 for 121 yards and a pick, and was sacked five times on the evening. He also was credited with two fumbles, one that was lost to the Texans defense. He took full responsibility for the errors during postgame, and now...

NEW ORLEANS — It wasn’t the finish that the Saints wanted, as they fell 17-13 in a preseason game number one against the Texans. Three turnovers and breakdowns late caused the Saints to fall short.

But, there were some positives to take even though they didn’t get the win on Saturday night.

Number one, the offense looked good in its opening drive. Andy Dalton, who was starting in place of an injured Jameis Winston, was 5-5 on his opening drive and made some big third down throws to Tre’Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway and Dwayne Washington capped off the 10-play, 67-yard drive with a...

Saints camp is “business as usual” without Sean Payton; how unusual will it be when season starts?

Reporting from Saturday night’s preseason game between the Saints and Texans, Peter King explained that training camp for post-Sean Payton New Orleans is “business as usual” under Payton’s successor, Dennis Allen.

The vibe underscores the fact that, but for Payton’s departure, everything else is pretty much the same for the Saints. The players haven’t dramatically changed from last year’s roster. The coaching staff is basically identical, with Allen getting bumped up to the top spot — like he did on a Sunday night last season when Payton was COVID-positive and the Bucs were held to zero...

HOUSTON — Chase Hansen signed with the New Orleans Saints last week, and he did not wait long to announce his presence with authority.

On the first play from scrimmage in the Saints 17-13 loss to the Houston Texans in the preseason opener, Hansen quickly diagnosed the play and met running back Marlon Mack in the hole with sudden violence.

“That was one of those where I was just itching,” Hansen said. “There were a couple after where, if you watch it closely, you could tell I was a little bit too hyped.”

Who can really blame him? The last couple years have taught Hansen quite a bit about...

The New Orleans Saints opened up their preseason with a disappointing loss to the Houston Texans. The Saints came out on fire with new backup quarterback Andy Dalton, but once the second and third teams came out the momentum started to stutter. The Saints did accomplish the most important part of the preseason though, and that is leaving the game and ending the week without any significant injuries.

There is a lot to be happy about from week one despite the loss. but in true Saints twitter form fans love to overreact. Here are some of the best twitter tidbits from fans and analysts from...
