Drew Brees is ready to hit the field again. The New Orleans Saints quarterback, who has been out since Week 2 with a right hand injury, said Wednesday his plan is to play in Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals. Coach Sean Payton was a bit less bullish, but did suggest that Brees may be a game-time decision on Sunday. This is the exact timetable that Brees had reportedly hoped to get back by. Amazingly, the Saints have won all five games that backup Teddy Bridgewater started, meaning...

Report: Saints looking to upgrade receiving corps ahead of trade deadline

The Patriots and 49ers strengthened their aerial groups on Tuesday, and the Saints are exploring the idea of doing the same. New Orleans is pursuing pass catchers, according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora. The Saints made a late-season addition of Dez Bryant last year but saw the longtime Cowboy go down before playing in a 2018  game. This Saints iteration has surprised many by going 5-0 with Teddy Bridgewater at the controls, firmly placing the team in the contention picture. This...

Michael Thomas is proving he’s worth every penny no matter who’s throwing to him

Photo by Sean Gardner/Getty Images

Drew Brees has made so many receivers look better over the years, but Michael Thomas’ play this season has shown he really is this good, with or without the future Hall of Famer slinging it his way.

Michael Thomas was set to make $1.148 million this season. He held out of training camp to push the Saints toward offering him a new deal that would pay him closer to his worth. The move paid dividends worth millions as the Saints inked Thomas to a five...

It’s nice to dream, right?

The NFL trade deadline is one week away, and the first dominoes are starting to fall as the Atlanta Falcons have traded Mohamed Sanu to the New England Patriots for a 2020 second round pick. The New Orleans Saints are sure to be buyers rather than sellers at the deadline, but it takes two to tango. Obviously Mickey Loomis and the Saints front office would love to add players like Patrick Peterson, Davante...

Saints to work out Kayvon Webster amid Eli Apple's injury

Saints cornerback Eli Apple left their game on Sunday against the Bears with an injury. While original reports suggested Apple hyper-extended his knee, the organization has yet to reveal how much time they expect him to miss. However, the team has begun looking at replenishing their secondary depth, holding a workout with free-agent corner Kayvon Webster according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Three “Ups” and one “down” from the game.

The final score does not do justice for this game. The Saints dominated throughout.

It was still a roller coast of a game, though, with plenty of “Ups” and “Downs” along the way, though. Here are a few that stood out:

Drew Brees to return to practice this week, hoping for Week 8 return

Drew Brees has missed five games now, and it looks like the Saints quarterback is nearing a return. Brees said he will return to practice this week and that he hopes to play in Week 8 against the Cardinals, according to Mike Triplett of ESPN.com (Twitter link). That being said Brees told Triplett he’s still taking a “we’ll see” approach, so it’s far from guaranteed he suits up against Arizona. Still, he’s clearly going to be back soon. Teddy Bridgewater has gone 5-0 in his...
