NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) -Take One: Cam gets paid

As we exited the indoor facility and walked to the outdoor portion of practice, news broke that Cam Jordan got his much-deserved payday.

According to reports, it’s a three-year, $52 million extension for Jordan. This would make him the fourth highest-paid defensive end in the league, and that’s exactly where he deserves to be. He’s a top-five talent at the position that is now compensated as such.

As Mike Triplett of ESPN pointed out, this is the first first round pick of the Sean Payton era to get to a third contract with the club.

Jordan was first in a decent line of Saints players up for significant pay raises in the near future. Sean Payton even suggested Tuesday that Michael Thomas could be next.

Cameron Jordan extension a win-win for Saints; Michael Thomas next?

METAIRIE, La. -- Sean Payton must have had contract extensions on the brain Tuesday after he finished talking about defensive end Cameron Jordan’s new three-year deal with the New Orleans Saints.

Because when Payton was asked a question about receiver Michael Thomas’ growth, the coach said, “He’ll be the next one, I’m sure. [General manager Mickey Loomis] will be working, and I know that they’ve probably already begun discussions.”

Thomas, who is scheduled to become a free agent next year, should command a new deal in the neighborhood of $20 million per year at some point this year or next.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg for the Saints, who also have guys such as Drew Brees, Teddy Bridgewater and Andrus Peat scheduled to be free agents in 2020...

Saints add free agent WR Chad Hansen among three transactions

The New Orleans Saints submitted a flurry of moves to the NFL’s transaction wire. They added free agent wide receiver Chad Hansen and, in a corresponding move, waived rookie cornerback David Simmons. They also placed rookie linebacker Chase Hansen on the reserve/non-injury list, which would make room on the 90-man roster for recently-signed cornerback Kayvon Webster.

Hansen (the receiver, not the linebacker) was drafted in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft and has already spent time with four different NFL teams (not including the Saints) after playing for the California Golden Bears in college. The New York Jets first picked Hansen but waived him during roster cuts last year. Hansen then spent time on the practice squads of the New England Patriots, Tennessee Titans, and Denver Broncos before signing with New Orleans.

Andrus Peat has been a key component of the winning formula for the New Orleans Saints.

Groomed to be an NFL offensive lineman by his father Todd Peat, Andrus had an extra edge in becoming a success. Todd played six years in the NFL with the Cardinals and Raiders during the late ’80’s and early ’90’s.

Ironically, the younger Peat didn’t play peewee football but hit the ground running when he arrived in high school.

As we conduct another version of the NFL Power Rankings, we got to thinking -- what's the one thing that could hold each team back?

Some teams have a lot of flaws to choose from (sorry, Dolphins and Redskins fans). Pinpointing a weakness on other teams might seem a bit nitpicky -- it's kind of hard to take Patriots and 49ers complaints seriously at the moment. But every team has that little imperfection that could hold it back, and our NFL Nation reporters highlight...
