SAINTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: New Orleans Saints punter shows off his insanely powerful leg

Listen, being a professional punter is a pretty awesome life. You make a whole bunch of money, you get to tell everybody you’re an NFL player, and you rarely have to get hit. I mean, what’s better than that? Plus, if you’re Thomas Morstead, you get to impress the ladies with your insane kicking abilities. Can anyone guess how far away the light pole is? @kohlskicking ...

WATCH: New Orleans Saints Punter Thomas Morestead Nails Field Lights With Ridiculous Punt

Punters are often the overlooked football player. People don't expect to see them do anything but kick the ball really, really far when they are called upon to actually get on the field and above all else never get a kick blocked (because it will be his fault if it is). However, what they don't realize is that these guys are athletes too and they are capable of doing big things.For...

The Saints Look to Shrink the Field in 2015

The Saints had nine picks heading into the draft and surprised everyone by using all nine. Payton stated that the picks acquired during the off-season would be used to shore up the defense. He was true to his word, and the team picked 6 defensive players and 2 offensive players going into the 7th round. During the later rounds in the draft teams are usually looking for raw physical...

Intel on Mike McGlynn

Here’s a little tidbit I got from Arrowhead Pride on McGlynn via twitter. If Lelito or Kelemete (or both) don’t beat him out, that might not be a good thing.   @SaintsNationBlg rough year w/ the Chiefs. He was signed like a week before the season so it was a tough situation — Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) May 22, 2015

Which New Orleans’ neighborhoods would these Saints players be?

About a year ago, in the boringness of the offseason, a former co-host of mine with The NOLA Rundown, Michael Flowers, found a way to make the offseason a little more exciting by matching New Orleans Saints players with New Orleans neighborhoods. The idea is, of course, the player perfectly represents that neighborhood. The end result could be giving him the nickname of “West Bank”...

Where does the Saints roster stand post draft?

Now that the draft is over I’ve been meaning to run through the position groups and give my thoughts on where things stand. Where the Saints are deep and where they are vulnerable. Kudos to Brian Pavek, who’s been going through positions groups and outlining both the changes and the expectations moving forward. There’s naturally some overlap with this post here but here I...

Drew Brees: Saying I'd play until 45 may have been 'overzealous'

After a rough 2014 season, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is rethinking a bold statement he made a year ago. Before the season began, Brees was excited about the possibility of playing into his mid-40s—a statement he now admits was a bit “overzealous.” Brees called his playing until he's 45 overzealous, but still kicked around the idea. — Larry Holder (@LarryHolder...

Saints OT Zach Strief Knows Team Drafted Andrus Peat to Someday Replace Him

It’s an unfortunate but inevitable rite of passage for NFL veterans to watch their team eventually draft the man tasked with replacing him on the roster. It never feels all that good—for the veteran, it’s a sign he’s getting old, getting slow or getting too expensive for his team to remain loyal for much longer. But New Orleans Saints right tackle Zach Strief is embracing...
