  Saints | Sign Delvin Breaux    Sat Jan 24, 02:39 PM

Free-agent CB Delvin Breaux (CFL) has reached an agreement with the New Orleans Saints Saturday, Jan. 24. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: A good signing for the Saints here. Breaux was the CFL's best corner last year, and he pretty much shut down the Montreal Alouttes star WR Duron Carter (three catches, 25 yards) when the two faced each other in the semifinals of the playoffs. Measuring in at 6'1" 196 pounds, Breaux could earn playing time for his hometown team right off the bat in 2015.

  Saints | Jimmy Graham might avoid surgery    Fri Jan 23, 10:25 AM

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) said he'll rehabilitate his shoulder injury after the Pro Bowl, but he hasn't made a final decision on surgery. 'It's something we talked about and is something that's still being debated,' Graham said. 'This is kind of a trial to see where I'm at. I've had three weeks off and I've finally had some time to heal. It feels great, and I'm going to continue to do my rehab and get back to 100%.'

Footballguys view: We'll have to see how Graham continues to recover before any decision is made about surgery. By the time training camp rolls around, Graham should be good to go.

  Saints | Will work out Delvin Breaux    Fri Jan 23, 03:39 AM

Free-agent CB Delvin Breaux (CFL) will work out for the New Orleans Saints on Friday, Jan. 23. CFL players are not eligible to sign NFL deals until Feb. 10.

Footballguys view: Breaux is the best corner in the CFL, and he's going to be highly coveted by NFL teams. In a game against Duron Carter, Breaux held him to three catches for 25 yards. Carter has first-round talent at 6'4" 205 pounds, and Breaux frustrated him all game long. Breaux has a good size/speed combination. At 6'1" 196 pounds, Breaux can be physical at the line of scrimmage with opposing wide receivers.

  Saints | Mark Ingram wants to return to Saints    Thu Jan 22, 06:37 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram, who will be eligible for free agency this offseason, wants to return to the team next year, and he thinks the interest is mutual.

Footballguys view: After years of struggling to produce and struggling to stay healthy, Ingram finally put it together with the Saints. Ingram ran for 964 yards on 226 attempts and nine touchdowns last year, which were all career highs. His 74.2 yards per game ranked him eighth in the league.

  Saints | Dennis Allen hired    Tue Jan 20, 09:52 AM

Former Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen was hired by the New Orleans Saints Tuesday, Jan. 20, as a special defensive assistant to defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.

Footballguys view: Allen failed as a head coach with the Raiders, but he's a defensive-minded guy who understands how to create concepts that work. He has experience in New Orleans from 2006-2010 as a defensive line and defensive backs coach.

  Saints | Marques Colston may be asked for pay cut    Wed Jan 14, 02:22 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston may be asked to take a pay cut this offseason, because he is scheduled to make $7 million in 2015 and count $9.7 million against the salary cap.

Footballguys view: Late season practice call-up Brandon Coleman has a similar skillset to Colston, and the Saints confidence in his development could be the denominator in this decision. Dynasty owners of both should stay tuned.

  Saints | Khiry Robinson missed opportunity    Tue Jan 13, 10:17 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson was slated to have his role increased before he suffered a fractured forearm midseason.

Footballguys view: Robinson should get an opportunity in 2015. Hopefully, he will stay healthy and play up to his potential if he does get a larger role. Mark Ingram is a free agent, so Robinson could enter training camp as the lead back for the Saints.

  Saints | Tim Hightower signed to futures deal    Sun Jan 4, 04:13 PM

The New Orleans Saints signed free-agent RB Tim Hightower (Redskins) to a futures contract Sunday, Jan. 4, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Interesting to see that Hightower gets a contract at this point in the offseason for the Saints. Deep dynasty league owners make sure to keep tabs here. The Saints backfield could look different in 2015. Mark Ingram hits free agency after a career-high 964 yards rushing. Khiry Robinson could be the lead back, and a guy like Hightower might earn a role as a reserve. Hightower has been out of football since tearing his left ACL in 2011 when he was with Washington.

  Saints | Three coaches will not return    Fri Jan 2, 02:37 PM

New Orleans Saints wide receivers coach Henry Ellard, tight ends coach Terry Malone and assistant defensive backs coach Andre Curtis will not return to the team next season, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Saints did not look very good this year, especially not when compared to expectations. There will be some changes as they look to rebound next season.

  Saints | Two signed to active roster    Fri Dec 26, 06:57 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Brandon Coleman and LB Jerry Franklin were signed to the active roster from the practice squad Friday, Dec. 26.

Footballguys view: Coleman is a long, lean receiver with good speed in the Marques Colston mold, so he could start to improve his long-term outlook with the franchise if he gets on the field and makes a few plays against Tampa Sunday.

Footballguys view: Stills is an ascending talent, and fantasy owners need to have him in the lineup when the matchup is good. This week against a bad Panthers secondary, we consider Stills a low-end WR2 with upside.
