Jared Cook the Saints’ biggest “X-factor” in 2019

There’s a wide range of possibilities for the veteran.

When we’re talking about “X factors” for the Saints in 2019, we’re not talking about the player who lines up in the “X” position as a pass catcher. No, instead we’re talking about the player who steps up for the team in a big way to make a difference at the position from the year before. Think Baker Mayfield for the Browns, George Kittle for the 49ers, or Jason McCourty for the New England Patriots in 2018.

Saints sign veteran WR Rishard Matthews

The Saints have signed wide receiver Rishard Matthews, according to the NFL’s transactions wire. To make room, the team waived fellow wide receiver Travin Dural.  The Titans granted Matthews’ request for release in late September after he grew frustrated with his lack of playing time. He hooked on with the Jets in October but posted just two catches for 13 yards before landing on injured reserve. Prior to that, Matthews was the Titans’ leading receiver for two seasons after he had a...

Drew Brees edges out Patrick Mahomes on PFF’s Top 50 players entering 2019

Here’s one thing Patrick Mahomes didn’t win over Drew Brees. Let’s discuss. Pro Football Focus finished up with their Top 50 best player rankings entering the 2019 season on Thursday, which should cause some nice debate on analytics. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees finished out 5th in their rankings, one spot ahead of Chiefs’ superstar Patrick Mahomes. Here’s what PFF had to say on the ranking: On his 489 regular season attempts, Brees’ ball placement was deemed to be...

Nick Easton the Saint with the most to prove at camp

He’ll be competing with a rookie for the starting job. There are a handful of interesting position battles to watch as the New Orleans Saints head into mini camp - long snapper, wide receiver, defensive line, and nickel cornerback just to name a few. When a team signs a veteran in free agency to fill an obvious void on the team, big things are expected of him. It could then be viewed as a poor signing if that player fails to beat out a rookie drafted in the second round that same year....
