Senio Kelemete
News
The New Orleans Saints have added fullback Austin Johnson to the practice squad Monday, ESPN reports. The Saints released guard Senio Kelemete in the process. 
Terron Armstead
News
Saints coach Sean Payton said he feels good about the way left tackle Terron Armstead finished his rookie season, reports ESPN.com. Last year's third-round pick out of Arkansas-Pine Bluff enters 2014 as the starter.

"That clears things up a little bit as you approach the draft, as opposed to getting through the season possibly not playing and maybe not having the exposure, too," Payton said. "I think he got better each week.”

Glenn Foster
News
Saints OL Terron Armstead, NT Brodrick Bunkley, S Rafael Bush, OB Keyunta Dawson, DE Glenn Foster and TE Josh Hill are questionable Week 15 against the Rams.

Bush, Dawson and Hill were unable to participate in practices throughout the week. Bunkley and Foster were able to practice in full Friday.

Jahri Evans
News
Saints offensive linemen Terron Armstead (knee) and Jahri Evans (anjkle) have been cleared for the Saturday playoff clash in Seattle. They had both been listed as probable.
Jordan Pugh
News
Saints running back Pierre Thomas (chest) is the lone injured player on the inactive report for the Saturday playoff battle in Seattle.

The healthy scratches are quarterback Ryan Griffin, corernback Terrence Frederick, linebacker Rufus Johnson, safety Jordan Pugh, defensive end Tyrunn Walker and wide receiver Nick Toon.

Ramon Humber
News
The Saints announced Friday that they have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with linebacker Ramon Humber

He has spent the past four seasons with the Saints, and in 2013 he finished with 29 total tackles and 0.5 sacks.

Pierre Thomas
News
The Saints made a surprising move Wednesday by keeping running back Pierre Thomas with a two-year extension. And he should still have plenty of Fantasy value in 2014.

Thomas was the No. 23 running back in standard leagues in 2013, and he led all running backs with 77 catches. Now that Darren Sproles is expected to be released, Thomas could be even more of a factor in the passing game.

Sproles was fourth among running backs with 71 receptions, and Thomas will almost excusively play on passing downs for the Saints over Khiry Robinson and Mark Ingram. Don't go overboard and expect 100-plus catches for Thomas, but he should have the chance for 80-plus based on Sean Payton's offense.

Along with Thomas' rushing totals -- he's had 100-plus carries for three consecutive seasons -- he should be able to replicate last year's 1,000-total yard campaign with five touchdowns. He makes for a solid No. 3 Fantasy running back in standard leagues and a low-end No. 2 option in PPR formats.

And if Robinson or Ingram fail to deliver on rushing downs, then Thomas could be a nice steal with a mid- to late-round pick.

Charles Hawkins
News
The Lions worked out receivers Anthony Armstrong, Charles Hawkins and Lavelle Hawkins on Tuesday, reports ProFootballTalk.com.

Anthony Armstrong, 30, last played for the Cowboys. LaVelle Hawkins, 27, was cut by the 49ers in the preseason. Charles Hawkins is a 23-year-old rookie from Southern University.

Detroit is in the market for a receiver after losing Nate Burleson to a broken arm.

Benjamin Watson
News
Three receivers and one running back chipped in with minor contributions for the Saints against Seattle on Saturday.

Tight end Josh Hill caught one pass for 23 yards, wide receiver Lance Moore snagged two for 20 yards and tight end Benjamin Watson went nowehere with one reception. Running back Darren Sproles outdid them all through the air with 32 yards on five catches, but ran for just 2 yards in three carries.

Cameron Jordan
News
The Saints have picked up the fifth-year option for defensive lineman Cameron Jordan, reports NFL.com. Jordan will now make $6.969 million in 2015.
Marcel Jones
News
The Saints terminated the contract of Courtney Roby, a longtime special teams ace and a wide receiver for New Orleans. Other contracts terminated: defensive end Jay Richardson, cornerback Chris Carr and safety Jim Leonhard. Center Eric Olsen was placed on Injured Reserve.

In addition, the Saints waived the following 17 players from the roster: quarterback Ryan Griffin, wide receiver Preston Parker, fullback Austin Johnson, wide receiver Saalim Hakim, guard Elliott Mealer, tight end Keavon Milton, tight end Mike Higgins, guard Andrew Tiller, center Jeremiah Warren, linebacker Rayford Shipman, linebacker Rufus Johnson, defensive tackle Isaako Aaitui, safety Jerico Nelson, linebacker Baraka Atkins, tackle Marcel Jones, cornerback Korey Lindsey and cornerback Jumal Rolle.
Will Smith
News
The Patriots are the favorites to land free agent defensive end Will Smith, reports Pro Football Talk. Smith, who visited the team on April 1, missed last season after tearing his ACL in Saints' training camp.

In New England, Smith would serve as a rotational pass rusher behind defensive ends Chandler Jones and Rob Ninkovich.

Shayne Graham
News
The Saints signed kicker Shayne Graham to a one-year contract Saturday, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. He will be paid the veteran minimum of $955,000, after signing with the Saints in december and playing in four games. 

Graham connected on both of his field-goal attempts in the regular season and 4 of 6 in the postseason, while making 10 extra-point attempts.

Travaris Cadet
News
Saints coach Sean Payton kicked off Wednesday's meeting with the media at the NFL Owners Meeting in Orlando by saying there were a number of ways to replace Darren Sproles. Then he went on to talk about only one: With Travaris Cadet

"Cadet is a player who has played in that role," Payton said. " ... I don't think you ever replace specifically a skill set like Darren's. It's unique and it's different than really our league's seen in a while for a player like his stature. But with regards to his touches, with regards to opportunities, Travaris is a guy that has played and is now going into his third year."

Payton liked Cadet's skill set to Sproles'.

"He's got very good ball skills," Payton continued. "He's a guy that can run the routes in that tree when you talk about a choice route, when you talk about an option. He can play from in the backfield but he can play from extended positions. That doesn't necessarily mean he's a wide receiver, just means he's a running back in space. So I think he's someone that is very comfortable in that role and I think he can run. I know his first season, '12, he kind of came to camp as a receiver and then we switched him back into running back. But he's a utility player that has gotten better at not just at the core skill sets of being a runner but is very comfortable when it comes to being a receiver out of the backfield." 

Payton further punctuated the discussion by saying he wasn't planning to be any more run-heavy this year than in the past. Since Sproles joines the Saints their running backs have caught at least 140 passes in each of the last three years. 

A.J. Davis
News
New Orleans placed running back Pierre Thomas on injured reserve Saturday, reports the team's official site. The Saints signed cornerback A.J. Davis to the active roster. Thomas had already been ruled out for the season finale against Carolina with a knee injury.
Will Herring
News
The Cowboys agreed to terms on a contract with free-agent linebacker Will Herring Thursday, though terms of the deal are not yet known. Herring appeared in all 16 of the Saints' games last season, recording 13 tackles and one interception.  
Jairus Byrd
News
The Saints signed safety Jairus Byrd to a six-year, $54 million contract. Now they expect him to force turnovers like he did with the Bills. In five seasons, Byrd had 22 interceptions and 11 forced fumbles.

"Every season you guys hear us say, 'Turnovers, turnovers, turnovers.' So you really begin to value those guys," coach Sean Payton said, per ESPN.com. "The ball finds them. [Byrd] is one of those players that seems to be around the ball a lot."

Drew Brees
News
Saints quarterback Drew Brees believes new Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi is going to bring out the best in Matthew Stafford, according to mlive.com.

Lombardi worked as Brees' quarterbacks coach for five seasons before joining the Lions. Brees said he sees some similarities between the Lions and Saints personnel, and believes Lombardi will find a way to make things work in Detroit. Brees added that he knew Lombardi would be in line to get a coordinator job. "You can kind of tell when assistant coaches are just kind of ready for that next step -- to be a coordinator, to be a playcaller," Brees said. 

Derrius Brooks
No Updates
Parys Haralson
News
The Saints have agreed to a one-year deal with linebacker Parys Haralson Tuesday, the financial terms of which are not yet known.

Haralson appeared in all 16 games for the Saints after he was acquired in a preseason trade. He recorded 35 tackles -- 16 solo -- and 3.5 sacks in eight starts. He is an eight-year veteran. 

Victor Butler
News
The Saints placed linebacker Victor Butler on the reserve/PUP list Tuesday. Although Butler can return after six weeks, he's expected to miss the 2013 season because of a torn ACL.
Akiem Hicks
News
An ankle injury will not prevent Saints defensive end Akiem Hicks from suiting up Saturday for the NFC semifinal against the Seahawks. He had been deemed questionable.
Josh Hill
News
Three receivers and one running back chipped in with minor contributions for the Saints against Seattle on Saturday.

Tight end Josh Hill caught one pass for 23 yards, wide receiver Lance Moore snagged two for 20 yards and tight end Benjamin Watson went nowehere with one reception. Running back Darren Sproles outdid them all through the air with 32 yards on five catches, but ran for just 2 yards in three carries.

Austin Johnson
News

Kevin Reddick
News
Saints TE Josh Hill, RB Pierre Thomas, S Rafael Bush, LB Keyunta Dawson, LB Kevin Reddick, T Terron Armstead and G Jahri Evans are probable Week 17. 

All seven were able to get through full practice Friday. Thomas is dealing with an eye injury, but should play.

News

Champ Bailey
News
New Saints acquisition Champ Bailey will play cornerback, general manager Mickey Loomis told the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "You always have a need for good players, and that's a valuable position," Loomis said.

Bailey reportedly was willing to move to safety if asked.

David Hawthorne
News
Saints inside linebacker David Hawthorne can't be blamed for his team's poor defensive performance Sunday in St Louis.

Hawthorne easily led his team with 10 tackles, all solos. He also recorded one of its only four TFLs.

Trevin Wade
News
The Saints signed exclusive rights free agent Trevin Wade to a one-year, $570,000 contract according to NFL writer Brian McIntyre. 
Ryan Griffin
News
With Saints quarterback Luke McCown entering free agency, Ryan Griffin should compete for the No. 2 job behind Drew Brees, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. A 24-year-old Tulane product, Griffin was elevated from the practice squad midseason to prevent quarterback-needy teams from taking him.

Griffin has yet to throw a pass in a regular-season game.

Jonathan Vilma
News
The Saints parted ways with a trio of veterans Wednesday, announcing the release of defensive backs Jabari Greer and Roman Harper, as well as linebacker Will Smith. The team also announced they would not be re-signing linebacker Jonathan Vilma.  
Khiry Robinson
News
Saints running back Khiry Robinson would see a major increase in carries if Pierre Thomas is released. And Robinson showed in 2013 he’ll make the most of his chances.

According to Pro Football Focus, Robinson tied for third among all RBs with 0.47 Fantasy points per opportunity – the number of points per carries or pass routes run. He forced 10 missed tackles on 54 carries, the seventh-best rate among RBs with fewer than 100 touches.

An undrafted rookie, Robinson was solid in the regular season (4.1 yards per carry) and better in the playoffs when he gained 102 yards on 21 carries (4.9 ypc). He got a team-high 13 totes in the divisional loss at Seattle, hammering in a 2-yard touchdown and adding a 13-yard catch. He brought a toughness the Saints’ ground game had lacked. Bill Parcells compared Robinson to Hall of Famer Curtis Martin.

If Thomas does not return, Robinson would be in a timeshare with injury-prone Mark Ingram. Sure, Darren Sproles is there too, but he’s almost strictly a passing-down back.

Coach Sean Payton told reporters he's "very excited" about the development of Ingram and Robinson, saying: "I think those two backs just from a physical power-running standpoint, especially down the stretch, they were tough."

Tyrunn Walker
News
Saints running back Pierre Thomas (chest) is the lone injured player on the inactive report for the Saturday playoff battle in Seattle.

The healthy scratches are quarterback Ryan Griffin, corernback Terrence Frederick, linebacker Rufus Johnson, safety Jordan Pugh, defensive end Tyrunn Walker and wide receiver Nick Toon.

Rafael Bush
News
The Saints matched the Falcons' offer sheet for restricted free agent safety Rafael Bush, so he'll stay with New Orleans on a two-year, $4.5 million deal, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Jabari Greer
News
The Saints parted ways with a trio of veterans Wednesday, announcing the release of defensive backs Jabari Greer and Roman Harper, as well as linebacker Will Smith. The team also announced they would not be re-signing linebacker Jonathan Vilma.  
Mark Ingram
News
Saints running back Mark Ingram said he's shocked by the impending release of Darren Sproles and possible trade of Pierre Thomas, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Ingram called the situation "a double-edged sword" because it appears he's headed for a bigger role.

"It's an exciting time in my career," Ingram told the paper. "I just want to take advantage of my situation and the opportunity that's presenting itself. Just want to prove to the organization that I can be the back they wanted, an every-down back, type of playmaker that they need.

"I'm excited about my situation. It's unfortunate to see a lot of guys go, but I'm excited about my opportunity that I have coming up."

Ingram averaged a career-high 4.9 yards per carry last season.

Marcus Ball
No Updates
Robert Meachem
News
The Saints announced Friday that the club has re-signed veteran free agent wide receiver Robert Meachem to a one-year contract.

Meachem is a seven-year NFL veteran who was originally the club's first round draft pick (27th overall) in 2007. He re-signed with the Saints prior to the start of the 2013 regular season and appeared in 15 games with five starts. He finished with 16 receptions for 324 yards with two touchdowns.

Meachem said signing with the Saints now should help with his preparations as he will be able to take part in the team's offseason conditioning program, OTAs and mini-camp. Plus, "this is home," he said.

Rufus Johnson
News
Saints running back Pierre Thomas (chest) is the lone injured player on the inactive report for the Saturday playoff battle in Seattle.

The healthy scratches are quarterback Ryan Griffin, corernback Terrence Frederick, linebacker Rufus Johnson, safety Jordan Pugh, defensive end Tyrunn Walker and wide receiver Nick Toon.

Derek Dimke
News
The Bucs have signed kicker Derek Dimke and released tight end Evan Landi.
Corey White
News
Saints defensive back Corey White had a productive game in Week 12 against the Falcons, as he led the team in tackles in a 17-13 win. White had 10 stops -- four solo -- and a fumble recover in the win.

White had just 14 tackles on the season heading into Thursday's game.

Jimmy Graham
News
Franchised player Jimmy Graham has until April 22 to file a grievance against the Saints for tagging him as a tight end. He and his representatives have said they believe he's more of a wide receiver than a tight end based on where he lines up and what he's asked to do. The Saints insist he's a tight end. 

It was initially believed by ProFootballTalk.com that the Saints and Graham would agree to terms before the deadline for a grievance arrived. But general manager Mickey Loomis said the team doesn't view April 22 as a deadline to get a deal done. The Saints have until July 15 to sign Graham to a multi-year deal; if they don't then he can only sign the one-year franchise tender. 

Graham had 86 catches for 1,215 yards and 16 touchdowns last year. 

Ty Nsekhe
News
The Saints signed offensive tackle Ty Nsekhe to a reserve/futures contract, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Kenny Vaccaro
News
The Saints placed rookie safety Kenny Vaccaro on injured reserve with a broken ankle and signed defensive back Terrence Frederick from the Browns' practice squad. Vaccaro had 92 tackles, six pass breakups, an interception, a sack and two forced fumbles.

Frederick played in two games with the Giants last year.

Rod Sweeting
News
The Saints' lengthy list of injured defenders did not turn into a lengthy list of inactive defenders in Week 12, as six of seven players were able to take the field Thursday against the Falcons.

Defensive backs Kenny Vaccaro (concussion), Rod Sweeting (hip) and Chris Carr (hip, back hamstring) were all able to play through injuries, as was linebacker Curtis Lofton (hamstring, ankle) and defensive linemen Cameron Jordan (ankle) and Akiem Hicks (back). 

Chris Givens
News
Rams WR Stedman Bailey, WR Chris Givens and WR Austin Pettis did little Week 14 against the Cardinals.

Bailey actually finished second on the team in receiving yardage, catching four passes for 46 yards. Givens caught just one pass for 21 yards. Pettis caught one pass for 19 yards. All three players were limited by Kellen Clemens' poor play against Arizona. Clemens only threw for 181 yards, and tossed two interceptions. 

They'll take on the Saints Week 15.

Patrick Robinson
News
The Saints put cornerback Patrick Robinson on season-ending injured reserve with a patellar tendon injury. Robinson suffered the injury Sunday against Tampa Bay.
Luke McCown
News
Quarterback Luke McCown re-signed with the Saints on a one-year deal, his agent said.
Kenny Stills
News
Saints receiver Kenny Stills, a fifth-round pick in the 2013 draft, proved to be the team's best deep threat while averaging 20 yards per catch. "The future seems bright," according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Stills' production was inconsistent, the paper notes, but he still caught 32 passes for 641 yards and five touchdowns. His role should increase in 2014 with the Saints possibly parting ways with veteran Lance Moore.

Bryce Harris
News
The Saints re-signed tackle Bryce Harris to a one-year deal for the 2014 season Saturday, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Harris will made $570,000, an increase of $70,000 from last year, when he appeared in all 16 games, including one start. 
Junior Galette
News
Saints outside linebacker Junior Galette broke out in 2013, starting every game from Week 2 on and ranking second on the team with 12 sacks and 22 quarterback hits. Galette led the Saints with 14 tackles for loss.

Galette signed a contract extension last offseason through 2015. With his cap number at $2.9 million the next two seasons, "he's a steal for the Saints," reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Galette helped New Orleans pile up 49 sacks, which ranked fourth in the NFL. The Saints had just 30 sacks in 2012.

John Jenkins

In addition to Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro, the Saints drafted Georgia defensive tackle Johnathan Jenkins, Oklahoma receiver Kenny Stills and Tarleton State outside linebacker Rufus Johnson.

Saints second-year receiver Nick Toon was usually inactive the second half of the season, but general manager Mickey Loomis said the organization is not down on him. "The only thing holding Nick back is the number of opportunities," Loomis said, per ESPN.com. "He'll get those going forward."

Noon dropped a bomb in the Week 9 loss at the Jets and was rarely seen after that. He finished the season with four catches for 68 yards. Signed cheaply for the next two seasons, Toon could play more if the Saints part ways with veteran Lance Moore.
