  • Tyrann Mathieu Rejoins Team At Training Camp

    New Orleans Saints safety Tyrann Mathieu (personal) rejoined the team at training camp on Tuesday after missing the last week for a personal family matter, according to a source. Even with Mathieu away, the Saints secondary has been perhaps the best group in camp, and now they have one of the best players back on the field. The Honey Badger is a three-time Pro Bowler and first-team All-Pro and finished last year with 76 tackles (60 solo), one sack, three interceptions (one for a touchdown), six passes defensed and three fumble recoveries in 16 regular season games. With him in the fold in the Saints secondary in 2022, the New Orleans defense/special teams on the back end should be much improved.

  • Smoke Monday Suffers Potentially Serious Injury

    New Orleans Saints rookie safety Smoke Monday (knee) suffered what is believed to be a significant knee injury on Tuesday at training camp, according to sources. The undrafted free agent out of Auburn had drawn praise from teammate Tyrann Mathieu for his ability and study habits. Monday finished the 2021 season with 45 tackles, six passes defensed and one interception to earn second-team All-SEC accolades. The young defensive back plays with endless amounts of energy and stands out in zone coverage. He'll need to improve his coverage techniques when guarding a receiver one-on-one, but his work ethic isn't in question. It remains to be seen if Monday's knee injury will keep him out for all of his rookie season.
