  Saints | Tre'Quan Smith ready for leap?    Sat Mar 30, 09:30 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith is set to take a big step forward this offseason, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Footballguys view: Smith flashed big-time talent (for just a bit) during his rookie season in 2018. The team needs him to take another step and certainly be more consistent in his second year in the pros. The Saints are looking for other weapons in the passing game besides WR Michael Thomas and RB Alvin Kamara. Smith is a dynasty prospect we love and will be monitoring closely to see if his game can mature.

  Saints | Jared Cook signing 2-year, $15.5M deal    Tue Mar 26, 12:35 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook will sign a 2-year, $15.5 million contract with the team Tuesday, March 25. Cook will receive a guaranteed $8 million in his first year of the deal.

Footballguys view: The Saints get a weapon at the tight end position they haven't had since the days of Jimmy Graham. Cook is big, athletic and creates mismatches anytime he's on the field. His game is not consistent, so we'll see if that can change in New Orleans. Cook may be their third target in the passing game behind WR Michael Thomas and RB Alvin Kamara.

Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Raiders) is expected to sign with the New Orleans Saints Thursday, March 21.

Footballguys view: It looks like this is going to happen. Cook is a receiving weapon with a size/speed combination that is rare. He'd be a great weapon for Drew Brees and the Saints passing attack as they continue to look for impact targets behind Michael Thomas.

Updating a previous report, free-agent DE Ziggy Ansah (Lions) and free-agent TE Jared Cook (Raiders) visited the New Orleans Saints Thursday, March 14, but left without deals in place.

Footballguys view: We'll see if something can still happen in New Orleans for these guys, but leaving without a contract is not a great sign. Cook is the best free agent tight end on the market but has yet to find a new team.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is expected to receive interest from the New Orleans Saints if the Saints are not able to re-sign free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater.

Footballguys view: The Saints are just in need of a veteran backup for Drew Brees. Taysom Hill is on the roster, but he's more of a gadget player than a quarterback.

  Saints | Michael Thomas eyeing payday    Sun Mar 10, 12:11 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas tweeted congratulations Saturday, March 9 to Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown regarding his new extension which equates to $19.8M per season, and now awaits a new deal of his own, which in the estimation of veteran reporter, could fetch at least $20 million per year.

Footballguys view: Thomas is entering the final year of his rookie contract and has a cap hit of only $1.6 million. Expect him to break the bank when he gets to free agency. The Saints would be wise to wrap him up ASAP as Thomas has been one of the best and most consistent receivers in the league since he stepped onto the field.

  Saints | Mark Ingram talking extension    Fri Mar 1, 10:49 PM

New Orleans Saints impending free-agent RB Mark Ingram is meeting with the Saints Saturday, March 2, to discusses a possible contract to remain with the team.

Footballguys view: Ingram was a first-round pick of the Saints back in the 2011 NFL draft. He's a big part of their rushing attack, splitting time/touches with Alvin Kamara. Ingram should have a healthy market if he hits free agency, so the veteran might be out of the price range of the Saints. At this time, they only have $10.7 million in cap space according to OverTheCap.com.

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill is expected to be the No. 1 tight end in 2019, in the opinion of Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune.

Footballguys view: We've been waiting for Hill to get more of a role with the Saints and that might actually come to fruition in 2019. Hill had a career high 185 receiving yards in 2018, but his ability as a receiver could lead to much larger production if given the opportunity.

New Orleans Saints impending free-agent RB Mark Ingram likely will not receive the franchise tag this offseason, in the opinion of ProFootballTalk.com's Mike Florio.

Footballguys view: Ingram should be looking for lead-back work on the open market after splitting time with Alvin Kamara over the last two seasons. We'd like to see a run-heavy team like Baltimore land the veteran power back. Ingram should have no shortage of suitors in free agency.
