Bill Barnwell’s not a fan of Saints defensive trio

The New Orleans Saints offense has been, without a doubt, the glue of the team. Through the highs and lows, they’ve kept everything together and prevented the team from sinking to the bottom level. That being said, their defense has been an issue for years, holding them back big time since their Super Bowl 44 championship. It’s been near the bottom of the league in yards allowed...

Kyle Wilson out for 2016

New Orleans Saints cornerback Kyle Wilson was placed on injured reserve on Friday, which will prevent him from ever suiting up in 2016. A former first-round pick of the New York Jets, Wilson has been a bit of a letdown as a pro player. The 29-year-old has never developed into the lockdown corner he was expected to be, and, now, Wilson’s career might be all but over. Early in his...

Saints hoping new veteran linebackers solidify defense

METAIRIE, La. (AP) James Laurinaitis sees a theme in the type of players the Saints brought in to bolster their linebacker corps this offseason. They aren't particularly flashy or considered rising stars.
