Saints at Panthers Thursday Injury Report: Kurt Coleman Limited

Even with number 29 making the list only 5 Saints were listed. And one may no longer be with the team.

Saints sole player listed as not practicing was newly claimed TE Erik Swoope (knee). He may have failed his physical because it’s reported the Saints have released him.

After claiming TE Erik Swoope off waivers yesterday, the #Saints are releasing him, source said. So he’s back out there in the mix. A quick trip to New Orleans.

4 daily fantasy players from Week 15: Saints at Panthers

Four players for your daily fantasy lineups.

If you’re a daily fantasy player, before each game I will look at three/four players from the New Orleans Saints and their opponent’s rosters that I would target in daily fantasy (based off their value and potential results).

Obviously, Saints QB Drew Brees is a safe QB for daily fantasy leagues, but spending your money on a top-tier starting QB leaves you scraping the barrel to fill out the rest of your roster.

So here are three Saints and...

Saints Film Room: Sinking the Bucs Offense

It was rough sailing the first time these two teams met, but a better game from Lattimore and a more reliable number 2 helped right the ship.

The game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers started out eerily similar to the dismal outing the Saints had last week against the Dallas Cowboys. The run game wasn’t there, and Thomas Morstead was called upon, not to hold for extra points, but to punt after failing to sustain drives.

Luckily, the defense was able to contain a Buccaneers offense that...

Report: Saints release former Pro Bowl WR Brandon Marshall

This could very well be the end of the line for six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Brandon Marshall. Mere weeks after signing him off the streets, the New Orleans Saints have released the 34-year-old pass catcher. This move comes after Marshall was previously let go by the Seattle Seahawks and with him not playing a single snap for the Saints. A fourth-round pick of the Denver Broncos back in 2006, Marshall has accumulated eight 1,000-yard seasons. He also led the NFL with 14 touchdown...

Saints release WR Brandon Marshall

The Saints have released wide receiver Brandon Marshall, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com. The move will create room for tight end Erik Swoope, who has been claimed off waivers from the Colts, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.  It was a short stay in New Orleans for Marshall, who was signed in November when Dez Bryant tore his Achilles just hours after inking his contract. Despite spending a full month with the team, Marshall never saw the field. Instead, he was used as a...

Some Bad Mojo When You Kick Against the Saints

Three missed extra points and five missed field goals against the 2018 Saints are eliciting feelings of some seriously bad juju, and that’s a good thing!

In their second game against the Buccaneers, something happened that has become a semi-regular occurrence during the Saints’ 2018 season.

Former Tulane kicker, Cairo Santos, missed two field goals, one from 46 and one from 40 yards. True, Santos has only hit 71.9% of his career field goals between 40 and 49 yards. But you have to...

Saints vs. Buccaneers: Week 14 quick observations

The Saints were able to bounce back from the Dallas loss last week, but it took a half for the whole team to get on the same page.

It was the second week in a row that the offense came out with a slow start. The Buccaneers defense was able to keep the the Saints from having easy third downs and limited the Saints to only 3 points in the first half. Luckily the defense continues its dominance and kept the game competitive until the team got a spark of energy from a crowd-favorite player. Here...

The Saints could make a high- or low-profile IR-return move in the coming days. Both Ted Ginnand offensive lineman Josh LeRibeus remain candidates to return from IR this season, Sean Payton said. “Rehab is going well. It’s still an option,” Payton said of a return from one of these players (via Fox 8 Live). “Both he (Ginn) and LeRibeus, I would say are on schedule. … I’m encouraged by how both of those guys are doing.” Only one of these players can return this season.
