Saints OT Ryan Ramczyk has successful knee surgery

Saints OT Ryan Ramczyk has successful knee surgery

Good news for the team’s starting right tackle.

There were several positives to take away from New Orleans Saints Head Coach Dennis Allen’s press conference today, but probably none more important to Saints fans than an update on the health of 3x All-Pro Offensive Tackle Ryan Ramczyk. The veteran right tackle, now in his 7th year with the team that drafted him 32nd overall in 2017, opted to have surgery on his knee after an injury riddled 2023 season. Though it wasn’t considered to be a major surgery, his health and future were on the minds and hearts of several...

Falcons land at 25th on NFLPA 2024 Report Card

The red helmets, though, get an A++.

The second annual NFLPA Club Report Cards have been released. The idea of the club report cards was brought up by players, so that they may essentially use it as a sort of “free agency guide,” as the report cards release shortly before free agency starts. The goal is to give players a better read of the organization they’re considering joining.

The NFLPA sends out surveys to players who respond with feedback about their respective organizations. In 2024, 1,706 active NFL players completed the survey, or about 77%. The Miami Dolphins ranked first,...

What Red Raiders will be in Indy?

For the ninth straight year, the NFL Combine will feature at least one Texas Tech University football player. It is the seventh straight year that the university has had multiple invitees.

Below I will be going through the three players who have been invited this year, and where on the draft board I think the New Orleans Saints should put them, with a little bit of lagniappe towards the end.

Saints convert Cesar Ruiz’s roster bonus to clear $6.4 million in cap room

Saints convert Cesar Ruiz’s roster bonus to clear $6.4 million in cap room

New Orleans is now only $23.7 million in the red.

The New Orleans Saints continue to trickle down to cap compliance by reworking C Cesar Ruiz’s contract per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. The team clears $6.4 million by converting Ruiz’s roster bonus into a signing bonus.

With this move, the Saints should be about $23.7 million over the cap which means they’re making great progress before getting to the tougher decisions, some of which we should see pretty soon. Look for players like RB Alvin Kamara, DE Cameron Jordan and LB Demario Davis to be restructured soon as well...

NFL Combine Preview: LSU Tigers

Eight Tigers were invited to the 2024 NFL Combine.

The 2024 NFL Combine is set to begin in a couple of days, and there are quite a few former LSU Tigers that are expected to be there.

We know the New Orleans Saints haven’t always been receptive to drafting LSU players, but maybe this is the year things change. The Tigers have quite a few players who would fit a position of need for the Saints, so this is as good a year as any for them to break the trend.

With all that said, let’s hop right into our...

Panthers Reacts Survey: Should the Panthers get back in the first round?

Panthers Reacts Survey: Should the Panthers get back in the first round?

It's that time of year again.

The Carolina Panthers are entering the 2024 NFL season without a first round draft pick, middling cap space, and a bevy of holes at every level of their roster. They really are the envy of the league.

The missing first round pick would hurt even if it weren't the first overall pick in the 2024 NFL draft. Setting aside that pain, the first round of the draft remains the best place to find young, cheap talent to help build a team.

Our question this week is simple. Do you think the Panthers should try...
