Projecting the initial 53-man roster for any NFL team is a futile exercise. Not only is it hard to get a real read of how coaches are judging players, there's also the complicating factor of a deluge of newly available players on the open market. As teams across the league start whittling down...

Your father's NFL this is not. That true-ism was on full display at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey as the New Orleans Saints and New York Jets played a preposterously penalized 60 minutes of preseason football. If the Saints 28-13 win was a regular season dress rehearsal, let's hope the understudies...

The final day of Saints training camp practice is in the books, but that doesn't mean the team's hard work in the preseason is over. They'll leave tomorrow for New York, where they'll play the Jets on Saturday. Well, technically, that game will actually be played in New Jersey at MetLife Stadium...

It was a tale of two halves in the Saints comeback win in Los Angeles against the Chargers. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater struggled with his accuracy in the first half, and the offense sputtered in his wake. The Saints managed just three points in the first two quarters, unable to capitalize on...

The Saints came from behind to beat the Chargers 19-17 after a fourth quarter rally engineered, in part, by quarterback Taysom Hill. That gave the Saints their first pre-season win and some momentum heading back home to New Orleans, but it may have been a pyrrhic victory. At least five Saints...
