  • Jameis Winston Expected To Skip OTAs

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston (knee) is expected to skip upcoming OTAs. During Week 8 of the 2021-22 season, the veteran tore his ACL and damaged his MCL, forcing him to miss the remainder of the year. Fortunately, he is progressing well, but the team will continue to take a cautious approach regarding his rehab. Winston had played relatively well before succumbing to the ailment, compiling 1,170 yards, 14 touchdowns, and three picks, although he only completed 59% of his throws. Nonetheless, not only does the 28-year-old hope to be ready for Week 1, he plans on being a full participant at training camp over the summer. He'll have some capable options on the receiving end, so he could be a serviceable backup for fantasy managers this season if he can get healthy.

  • Devine Ozigbo Lands With The Saints

    The New Orleans Saints signed free-agent running back Devine Ozigbo to an undisclosed deal on Monday. The Saints also signed linebacker Eric Wilson and waived center Cohl Cabral, linebacker Joel Dublanko and wide receiver Jalen McCleskey. Ozigbo was waived by the New England Patriots on May 2. The 25-year-old has played in 21 games (zero starts) over the last three years with the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Saints and has 11 carries for 25 yards while adding 13 receptions for 72 yards on 15 targets. Ozigbo originally signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Nebraska in 2019. He'll strictly be providing RB depth behind Alvin Kamara, Mark Ingram II, Tony Jones Jr. and Dwayne Washington and won't be a lock for the final roster.

  • Saints Sign LB Eric Wilson

    The Saints continue to add veteran help post-draft. While Eric Wilson is not a New Orleans native like Tyrann Mathieu or Jarvis Landry, he represents a veteran with starter experience to join the team in recent days. Wilson signed with the Saints on Monday, joining running back Devine Ozigbo in doing so. This will be […]

  • Jarvis Landry Agrees To One-Year Deal

    Updating a previous report, wide receiver Jarvis Landry inked a one-year contract worth as much as $6 million with New Orleans on Friday. After it was reported for weeks the veteran could be staying in the AFC North to return to the Browns or join the Ravens, he will instead head back to his home state to suit up for the Saints. The 29-year-old is a multi-time Pro Bowl wideout and has been potent option for quarterbacks over the years. However, Landry is coming off arguably the worst season of his career, although playing alongside Michael Thomas and rookie Chris Olave during the 2022-23 campaign may help him get back on track. Still, despite a potential resurgence, managers shouldn't make any drastic moves during fantasy drafts to acquire his services.

  • Jarvis Landry Signing With The Saints

    Free-agent wide receiver Jarvis Landry is signing an undisclosed deal with the New Orleans Saints on Friday, according to a source. The five-time Pro Bowler has 43 career touchdowns, is from Louisiana and played at nearby LSU. The 29-year-old pass-catcher had the worst season of his career in 2021, but he only played in 12 games due to knee injuries and also had to deal with poor quarterback play from Baker Mayfield. He finished with 52 receptions on 87 targets for 570 yards and two touchdowns. The five-time Pro Bowler will be competing for targets with rookie first-rounder Chris Olave in his new home, and he'll be behind Michael Thomas as well in the slot. But Landry should at least be quarterback Jameis Winston's No. 3 target behind Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway.

  • Saints Sign First-Rounder Chris Olave

    The New Orleans Saints and first-round wide receiver Chris Olave agreed to a four-year, fully guaranteed $19.271 million deal on Friday, according to his agents. The Saints traded up within the first round to take Olave 11th overall out of Ohio State. The 21-year-old track star will immediately give quarterback Jameis Winston another legitimate receiving threat to pair with the returning Michael Thomas. Olave set Ohio State's all-time touchdown record with 35 over his four seasons, and he brings elite speed along with smooth route-running skills. Even if Thomas remains healthy all year in 2022, Olave should be productive for fantasy managers in his rookie season in redraft leagues.

  • Jameis Winston Plans To Be Ready For Week 1

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston (knee) said he plans to be ready for the Week 1 regular season opener on the road against the Atlanta Falcons. "Coach, if you needed me to strap it on right now, I'd be ready to go," Winston told former Lions and 49ers coach Steve Mariucci on Thursday. The 28-year-old tore his left ACL last year and was only able to play in seven games, throwing for 1,170 yards, 14 touchdowns and only three interceptions. Hopefully Winston can remain productive and avoid turnovers with new head coach Dennis Kelly taking over, and he'll have the chance to be even better with the return of wide receiver Michael Thomas and with the addition of first-round pass-catcher Chris Olave.

  • Saints Agree To Terms With First-Rounder Trevor Penning

    The New Orleans Saints have agreed to terms with the No. 19 overall pick, offensive tackle Trevor Penning of Northern Iowa. It is a four-year, fully guaranteed deal with a fifth-year option. Penning will be tasked with filling the huge void left by the departure of former left tackle and three-time Pro Bowl selection Terron Armstead to the Miami Dolphins. Penning was the sixth offensive lineman off the board and was one of nine total to go in the first round. The 23-year-old Penning measured at 6-foot-7 and 325 pounds, with the Saints hoping he secures the left tackle spot for the long haul.
