  Saints | Alex Okafor to be closely monitored    Sat Jul 28, 10:20 AM

New Orleans Saints LB Alex Okafor (Achilles') will have his practice reps monitored in training camp, as he returns from a torn Achilles' tendon, according to head coach Sean Payton. The team hopes to build him up to a point where he will be capable of playing 40 to 50 snaps.

Footballguys view: There are some success stories among pass rushers returning from achilles tears, including Terrell Suggs and Cameron Wake, so we shouldn't write off Okafor. He was a big under the radar contributor last year and should at least be a passing down specialist this year if everything goes well.

  Saints | Alex Okafor re-signs with Saints    Fri Mar 16, 11:24 AM

Free-agent LB Alex Okafor (Saints) re-signed with the New Orleans Saints Friday, March 16, on a two-year, $10 million deal.

Footballguys view: Okafor was an impact addition as a pass rusher for the Saints after moving to 4-3 end before tearing his achilles in November. He came at a discount because of his injury, but the team knows what they are getting as long as he comes back to full health.

  Saints | Alex Okafor's season over    Mon Nov 20, 08:56 AM

New Orleans Saints LB Alex Okafor (Achilles') will miss the rest of the season with a torn Achilles', according to a source.

Footballguys view: Signed to a one-year, $3 million deal earlier this year Okafor looked good as a rusher for the Saints defense. He's set to hit the free agent market in 2018 and may have to settle for another 'prove it' deal after this season ending due to injury. A fourth-round pick out of Texas (Cardinals) in 2013, Okafor has never played a full 16-game season during his pro career.

  Saints | New Orleans eyeing open competition at DE    Sun May 14, 02:32 PM

New Orleans Saints DE Cameron Jordan has one defensive end spot locked up, but the team expects an 'open competition' between Alex Okafor, Obum Gwacham, Hau'oli Kikaha and third-round pick Trey Hendrickson for the defensive end spot opposite him.

Footballguys view: The Saints need to find a new starter opposite Jordan after not renewing the contract of Paul Kruger. Okafor has the experience advantage and has an 8.0 sack season (2014) on his resume (when he was with the Cardinals). Hendrickson, the rookie from FAU, is known as a hustle player who just won't quit. He can get the quarterback with bend, burst and a burning desire to make a play. Hendrickson may be best suited as a rotational player, but the upside is there for him to be an effective starter.
