The New Orleans Saints are currently in England on a press tour meant to drum up enthusiasm for upcoming NFL games that will be played in London. Running back Mark Ingram has been tweeting a lot during the trip, and for the most part he seems to be enjoying himself, save for the night when he claims he and his…
On Monday, former NFL wide receiver Robert Meachem was sentenced to 30 days in jail over his failure to pay almost $400,000 in child support. The New Orleans Advocate first reported Meachem’s sentencing.
After five hours of deliberations, a New Orleans jury has convicted Cardell Hayes of manslaughter and attempted manslaughter after a shooting in April that left former Saints star Will Smith dead and Smith’s wife Racquel Smith hospitalized.
Darren Sharper was sentenced today to 20 years in prison for drugging and raping two women he met at a West Hollywood nightclub. The prison term will run concurrent to the previous sentence of 18 years, handed down by a New Orleans federal court earlier this year.
Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton have a history. In January of 2012, Williams left the team for a job with the St. Louis Rams, received an NFL suspension a couple of months later for his role in the Saints’ Bountygate, missed the 2012 season, and never actually worked…
With just under two minutes left in the fourth quarter, the New Orleans Saints scored a crucial touchdown to tie the Denver Broncos at 23 points apiece.
The one-win San Francisco 49ers have been seriously unwatchable this year, but they competently pulled off a shrewd play in Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.
Saints running back Mark Ingram scored a marvelous touchdown in the second quarter of today’s New Orleans-San Francisco game to give his team a 28-10 lead, leading the NFL to rush tweet a highlight of the play—and, just as quickly, delete the tweet after hearing the language used by Ingram as he passed one of Fox’s…

I hate to pile on the NFL here, but when the story of the season is that fewer people are watching football, it’s worth drawing attention to one of the sport’s most irritating features: the terrible pass interference call.
Corner a Panthers fan today and press them about their team, and they’ll likely react not dissimilarly to Cam Newton in his postgame press conference. Deep sighs, terse answers, and if you ask what it’s like to sit there and watch Carolina’s defense get burned again and again, they’ll probably make a break for it.
They will not, it is safe to say, be placing a statue of this punt return outside the Superdome:
Here are two facts. The first is that the Falcons are rounding into form as an offensive juggernaut, their 45-32 shootout win over the Saints an almost ideal display of firepower that saw them score touchdowns on five consecutive drives. This was a balanced attack, with big nights from Devonte Freeman and Tevin…

New Orleans Saints cornerback P.J. Williams was carted off the field during the first quarter of today’s game after New York Giants tight end Larry Donnell crashed into his neck after a catch.
The only reason the Saints cut C.J. Spiller yesterday and not before the season was because they literally could not afford to release him. A solid example of this franchise’s failed acquisitions and questionable salary cap tactics, Spiller’s contract now heads to the expensive graveyard of botched Saints moves, and…
With less than a minute to play, the Oakland Raiders looked ready to tie the game after a Seth Roberts touchdown from Derek Carr cut their deficit to one point against the New Orleans Saints. But then head coach Jack Del Rio got bold.
Serial rapist and former NFL star Darren Sharper was sentenced today to 18 years in prison for raping, drugging, and/or attempting to rape 16 women in four different states.
Sharper was sentenced in federal court by Judge Jane Triche Milazzo, who previously rejected a global plea deal that would have given him only a…
Here’s a look at how much Louisiana taxpayers are giving Tom Benson, the state’s richest man, to keep the Saints in New Orleans. It’s been 11 years since Benson tried to use Hurricane Katrina to break his lease and move to San Antonio.
