Is Adam Trautman ready to lead at tight end?

The Saints have their tight end of the future in the building.  Or should. Adam Trautman has all the traits. He’s the right size, has the right athleticism to make plays and a willingness to block. He was drafted last year as a raw projection out of Dayton with the understanding that it was going […]

What are the Saints’ options at safety if Marcus Williams tests the market?

There shouldn’t be a more critical issue on defense than finding a way to maintain the strength of the secondary.  Retaining Marcus Williams should be one of the Saints’ top priorities, especially since there isn’t an immediate and obvious replacement already on the roster. Still, it is possible the safety prices out and finds larger […]

How the Saints could trade for Russell Wilson and fit him under the cap

A significant piece could become available and apparently, that piece is interested in being part of the Saints’ puzzle. Russell Wilson’s camp started to let it be known the quarterback might want out of Seattle a few weeks ago, and The Athletic added more credence to that possibility with a report detailing both sides’ frustrations. […]

David Onyemata could be on his way to establishing himself as one of the NFL’s premier interior defensive linemen

One of the best players on the Saints defense barely gets mentioned outside of the Gulf Coast.  Everyone outside of New Orleans can probably name a couple defensive linemen, some guys in the secondary, and at least Demario Davis at linebacker. But hardly, if ever, do you hear anyone mention David Onyemata.  At some point, […]

How Michael Thomas’ game could change with a different quarterback

Michael Thomas has been the perfect receiver for this offense the last few years.  The Saints have looked to control the ball, eliminate risks and play in the shorter areas of the field. Thomas fit the bill. He dominated at levels the league has never seen before by getting open in these areas and doing […]

Zach Strief is joining Saints coaching staff, will leave broadcast booth

Zach Strief was almost always looking in the same place. While everyone else had their eyes on the quarterbacks, linebackers, or something else, Strief almost always turned his head toward the offensive linemen. Ask him how someone was doing, and he’d have a detailed answer about the player’s technique and how he performed in the […]

These Saints players could break out or grow into bigger roles next season

Despite what you’ve heard from national pundits and people covering teams in other states, the Saints aren’t going to have to trade away their whole roster and put Gumbo up for sale to pay their bills. There will be some pain as the team sheds some salary to get under the cap, but it shouldn’t […]

The blueprint: How we would handle the Saints’ biggest internal offseason decisions

The identity of the Saints will never be the same. Things are going to change this offseason, and it seems nearly certain a new era is starting in New Orleans. Not only could some significant players step away from the game, the team needs to clear more than $60 million in cap space, which will […]

How much should Marcus Williams get paid? Should the Saints cut the check?

A good coverage safety might catch your eye 20 times per season. He’ll knock down a few passes, maybe intercept a few, and make a few plays over the middle. Most of the time, if he’s doing his job and taking away the deep passing lanes, you won’t have much reason to think about him […]
