Deal is done !

The New Orleans Saints said they wanted Drew Brees to remain a New Orleans Saint.

Drew Brees will remain, and likely will finish his Hall of Fame career, as a New Orleans Saint.

Brees, the best player in franchise history, and the Saints agreed to a two-year contract Tuesday that will push Brees to 19 NFL seasons, 14 with the Saints. During the next two years, among the NFL records within Brees’ reach is passing yards (he has 70,445; Peyton Manning’s record is 71,940) and touchdown passes (Brees sits at 488; Manning’s record is 539).

“I think that provides, certainly, the team with the most flexibility when it comes to being able to anticipate the future and the ability to acquire free agents and re-sign players on our existing roster that will build a championship team,” Brees told ESPN.

Sean Payton explains why Saints were surprised to get both Marcus Williams, Alvin Kamara

INDIANAPOLIS — The New Orleans Saints had an incredible 2017 draft class, and as the process played out, coach Sean Payton was surprised how the board fell in their favor.

Before the draft, Payton thought the 42nd overall pick in the second round would be a good spot to pick Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara. The expectation that Kamara or other talented players would be available was a reason the Saints didn’t want to trade the second-round pick away, perhaps in a potential Malcolm Butler deal.

However, when the Saints were on the clock, another player they’d given a first-round grade was still available, Utah safety Marcus Williams.

What you should know about the Saints at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine

From teams, agents to players, virtually the entire NFL universe converges on Indianapolis in the coming days for the 2018 Scouting Combine, which begins Wednesday and runs through the weekend.

The Combine remains an essential part of the predraft process for the scheduled 336 draft-eligible participants.

And the New Orleans Saints certainly made the most of time spent in Indianapolis last year by getting a good look at draft prospects and eventually turning weakness into strengths, especially on defense.

Marshon Lattimore – Rookie of the year.

New Orleans Saints CB Marshon Lattimore has been selected as the Associated Press NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, the first time that a Saint has won the award.

Lattimore, the 11th overall pick by the Saints out of Ohio State, enjoyed a standout season as he is the only the fourth cornerback in franchise history to be selected to the Pro Bowl and the first since Eric Allen in 1995 and joined fellow rookie, RB Alvin Kamara as one of only seven Saints rookie selected. The Cleveland, Ohio native started all 13 games he played in and posted 53 tackles (44 solo), a club-best five interception returns for 85 yards with one returned for a touchdown, a team-high 18 passes defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Lattimore’s five picks were ranked first among NFL rookies and tied for fifth in the league overall.




Alvin Kamara Rookie of the year !

Saints running back Alvin Kamara edged Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt as the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year.

The award was announced during Saturday’s NFL Honors program in Minneapolis.

Kamara, a third-round pick from Tennessee (67th overall), ran for 728 yards and caught 81 passes for 826 yards for 1,554 yards from scrimmage. That total was second among rookies behind Hunt, who led the NFL with 1,327 rushing yards. Kamara’s 14 total touchdowns — eight rushing, five receiving, one kick return — led all rookies.

Vikings fans raise over $105,000 and counting for Saints punter Morstead’s charity

Come on Who Dat Nation !  I know we can give also to help out Morstead’s charity !

Thomas Morstead, the Saints punter who tore cartilage in his ribs during the first half of
Sunday’s NFC Championship game, may be making a return trip to Minnesota during Super Bowl
weekend. This time, however, he will be welcomed with open arms.

Not only did he finish the game despite his injury, after the play that many are dubbing the
“Minneapolis Miracle,” Morstead was the first Saint out on the field for the inconsequential
extra-point play. That courageous display of grit and respect resonated with many Vikings fans.

One fan even took to Reddit to draw attention to Morstead’s charity, “What You Give Will Grow.”
