Despite the loss, Malcolm Jenkins proved his value early in his second stint with the New Orleans Saints

Yes. The New Orleans Saints lost this game to the Green Bay Packers. If you asked veteran safety Malcolm Jenkins about his individual performance in this game, he’d probably remind you that winning is what’s most important. But despite falling short of that goal as a team, Jenkins was all over the field in this matchup against one of the most...

Marcus Davenport is much better than you think

He hasn’t been perfect, but he hasn’t been a total bust either.

Marcus Davenport has not yet been the caliber of player the New Orleans Saints envisioned when they drafted him in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. That’s no smoldering hot take. But at the same time, he hasn’t been terrible either. His career numbers don’t look great (12 sacks and 14 tackles for loss over the course of 3 NFL seasons), but there’s a...

3 Saints who will need to step up in 2021

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

What Saints will need to step up the most this season ?

The New Orleans Saints will need some key players to step into much larger roles this year after losing a lot this past offseason. New Orleans lost both key veterans and role players due to the salary cap, and these three players will have to step up this season if the Saints want to keep contending.

Get the tissues ready. Just a guess.

In 2011, former New Orleans Saints special teams ace Steve Gleason was diagnosed with ALS. Once Gleason then learned he was going to become a father, he started keeping video journals for his son, Rivers.

In 2013, Gleason, Rivers, the Gleason family, and the videos, were profiled by SportsCenter.

Now, in 2021, SportsCenter returns to the Gleason family for Father’s Day. Ten years after...

Saints hit important Covid-19 benchmark

But I’m sure the NFL will still find a way to punish the Saints anyway.

The New Orleans Saints have a bit of a checkered past with Covid in the eyes of the NFL. After post-game celebrations again went viral last year showing some Saints players and coaches without masks, the Saints were fined a 2022 6th round draft pick.

However, fast forward to the 2021 offseason, and the Saints are not one of the NFL’s leaders as far as Covid vaccinations...

Film: David Onyemata trending towards becoming Pro Bowl-caliber DT

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

He took a step last year and showed all the qualities he needed to be worth the contract he received in 2020.

Perhaps one of the most underrated defensive linemen in the league, Canada’s own David Onyemata is quietly trending towards becoming a perennial Pro Bowl-caliber defensive tackle.

With the performance this guy put on display last season, you’d think he’d be recognized more across the league as a high-level three-technique tackle.

He recorded a...

The loss of Drew Brees is most felt in offseason conversation

There’s a weird air around New Orleans football heading into the 2021 season. Coming off of a fourth straight division title and a fourth straight disappointing postseason, the Saints are entering the year without a presence that has steadily been there since 2006: Drew Brees. The inevitable Hall of Famer’s retirement dominated headlines this offseason for the Saints, but with offseason...
