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...

Saints sign G Mike McGlynn, release WR Andy Tanner

Tanner was never making the team and McGlynn will compete with Lelito and Kelemete for a starting spot. He’s been a starter in the NFL the last five seasons. This move is a no brainer. But read my tweet below. Yikes. Mike McGlynn, per @PFF, was rated dead last of 78 qualifying guards last year with a -32.6 grade. And the Chiefs replaced him w/ Grubbs — Saints Nation Blog (@SaintsNationBlg...

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...

Tim Lelito out to prove he is the right man for the Saints left guard spot

Tim Lelito knows he still has to fight to become the New Orleans Saints starting left guard. While some may have thought it was a foregone conclusion that he would replace Ben Grubbs in the Saints starting lineup, Lelito knows that just because a player wasn’t drafted to take the spot or no high profile free agent was signed to challenge him, it does not mean he has won the job...

Saints release K Shayne Graham, sign WR Lance Lewis

Garrett Grayson on Meeting Saints Quarterback: “Holy Cow, That’s Drew Brees”

Eventually, the time will come for New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees to step down and hand the starting job over to a new quarterback. That quarterback could be Garrett Grayson, who the Saints selected in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

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...

REPORT: Garrett Grayson is absolutely starstruck by Drew Brees

There’s a chance that Garrett Grayson is the future franchise quarterback of the New Orleans Saints, but that won’t be for a long time — at least, it won’t be if things go according to plan. Drew Brees, the current franchise quarterback, is still a superstar, and all of New Orleans is hoping that he will continue to be for the next few years. And, apparently, there may be...

The three biggest holes still left on the New Orleans Saints heading into training camp

I think it’s safe to say that last season sucked. So … let’s just keep looking ahead. The Saints are in complete overhaul mode, and, to be honest, I’m not sure what’s going on. It seems pretty clear that this will be a much more run-heavy team, but that’s still hard to imagine with Drew Brees running the show. And defensively, you’d imagine that things would be better...
