With free agency and the draft completed, and OTAs and minicamps scheduled for the next month and a half, here's a closer look at the depth chart for the New Orleans Saints:


Note: Starters in bold

Quarterback (3): Drew Brees, Taysom Hill, Tom Savage

The backup battle should be one of the more fascinating summer storylines after the Saints let veteran Chase Daniel go in free agency. Sean Payton is apparently so enamored with Hill's dual-threat potential that he told Fox (Sports) last year that Hill could be Brees' successor -- even though he didn't join the Saints until after he was cut by the Packers as an undrafted rookie last September.

Running back (6): Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara, Trey Edmunds, Boston Scott, Jonathan Williams, Daniel Lasco

The New Orleans Saints are down by not entirely out when it comes to the NFC South. With four teams sporting losing records in the division, the Saints have a chance to more than triple their current playoff odds with a win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Monday night.

In order to do so, New Orleans will need to rely on the defensive prowess of head coach Dennis Allen and defensive coordinators Ryan Nielsen and Kris Richard. The trio has done it before with a 9-0 Week 15 victory last season in Tampa. Doing so again will come down to one key factor: Frustrating Bucs quarterback Tom...

'I missed it': Saints linebacker Pete Werner back to practicing after ankle surgery

The New Orleans Saints always had hope linebacker Pete Werner would return to play in 2022 despite undergoing a mid-season surgery for a right ankle injury.

That hope came to fruition this week.

Werner made his comeback Thursday for the Saints’ opening practice of Week 13. It was the first time he had participated — albeit limited — since suffering his injury in the team’s Week 9 loss against the Baltimore Ravens on Nov. 7.

“There’s some surgeries that take you out for a long time and also a few that get you back quicker than normal,” Werner said Friday. “Luckily, it was one of those...

There were minimal changes to the Saints’ injury report ahead of Monday night’s contest with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but the team does appear to be trending toward being healthier than it has for a while.

Running back Mark Ingram (knee), right tackle Ryan Ramczyk (rest) and center Josh Andrews (ankle) were all upgraded to full participation status after being limited Thursday.

Defensive back Marshon Lattimore (abdomen) and linebacker Pete Werner (ankle) continued to practice in a limited capacity. Lattimore has missed seven consecutive games with his injury, while Werner has missed...

NEW ORLEANS — The Saints are moving, albeit slightly, in the right direction on the injury front.

Three players- running back Mark Ingram (foot), tackle Ryan Ramczyk, and guard Josh Andrews (ankle)- were full participants in Friday's practice after the trio were limited on Thursday. The Saints have one more practice session remaining, on Saturday, ahead of Monday's game in Tampa.

Everyone else listed on Thursday's injury report retained their identical status from Thursday: Defensive end Payton Turner (ankle), tight end Juwan Johnson (ankle), defensive backs Bradley Roby (concussion) and...

But there were still four limited participants (including linebacker Pete Werner and cornerback Marshon Lattimore) as well as eight others held out of action while on the mend or dealing with illnesses.

Meanwhile, the Buccaneers gave rest days to several past-their-prime veterans like quarterback Tom Brady, wide receiver...

Jeff Duncan: What is and isn't an NFL catch? Nobody seems to know, including NFL officials

In the New Orleans’ loss to the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Chris Olave caught what appeared-to-be a 30-yard pass from Taysom Hill in the second quarter.

It was a huge play at the time. The Saints trailed 3-0 and would have had a first-and-goal at the 49ers’ 8-yard line. However, the play was subsequently overturned by replay officials in New York after 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan challenged the call.

During the FOX broadcast of the game, Dean Blandino, the NFL’s former vice president of officiating, agreed with the overturn, saying that Olave failed to “perform an act common to the game”...

Saints Passing Attack Seeks Better Performance Against Buccaneers Defense

In the 2021 Divisional Playoffs, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pushed QB Drew Brees into retirement with three interceptions in a 30-20 win. They'd knock out his replacement, former Bucs QB Jameis Winston, for the 2021 season in Week 8. Winston returned in 2022, only for Tampa Bay to intercept him three times and record six sacks in a 20-10 Week 2 win.

Now it's Andy Dalton's turn.

The 35-year-old Dalton gets his 10th straight start for the 4-8 Saints as they go into Tampa Bay to take on the 5-6 Buccaneers on Monday night. He'll lead a 15th ranked offense that averages 347 yards per outing but...

Let’s start with the good news. The New Orleans Saints are wearing their fan-favorite “Color Rush” alternate jerseys in Monday night’s game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which are always a welcome sight — the gold detailing and black trim stand out well on the white uniforms, making for one of the best looks you’ll find around the NFL.

Now the bad news, which we already knew about: the Saints are also wearing their alternate black helmets for this game, using the same lids-uniforms combo that they debuted in Week 4’s game with the Minnesota Vikings earlier this year.

It’s not your regular Friday Dattitude, as the focus of the Saints shifts to LSU playing No. 1 Georgia in the SEC championship game on Saturday and Tulane vs. Central Florida in the American Athletic Conference title game at Yulman Stadium.

How do the Tigers matchup against the Bulldogs? Well, who better to answer that question the LSU sideline reporter Gordy Rush, who joins Dattitude (Ep. 122) for the first time. How will Jayden Daniels hold up with his injury, and will the Tigers’ offensive line be able to withstand the fierce Georgia rush? Also, how remarkable a job has Coach Brian...

NEW ORLEANS — Drew Brees was not struck by lightning while filming a promotional video in Venezuela, despite a video posted online. The video was shared by several prominent sports personalities and sports journalists before being debunked as a "spoof."

Earlier this week, Brees shared on Twitter that he was "flying to a top-secret location" to film a promotional video for Pointsbet Sportsbook, a company which he owns a stake and serves as a brand ambassador.

The video shows the former New Orleans Saints quarterback getting ready for a video shoot while the skies are erupting with...

Sunday’s biggest game in the NFC playoff picture is the Commanders against the Giants, with Washington surging and New York fading.

Early in the season the Giants looked like this year’s surprise playoff team, while the Commanders looked like they were going nowhere fast. But the Giants have collapsed just as the Commanders have turned this around, and on Sunday Washington has a chance to leapfrog New York in the playoff race.

Here’s how the playoff picture looks heading into Sunday’s games.


1. Eagles (10-1) Best record in football.
