Tight end Taysom Hill was in attendance and did something a little unexpected. According to Sean Fazende of FOX8, Hill took reps at tight end and the full-back position.

While this is an interesting move, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. New offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak helped run an offense in San Francisco that featured a lethal fullback in Kyle Juszczyk, an eight-time...

There are a couple of stretches that we will consider here.

With the revealing of the New Orleans Saints season schedule happening just a couple of days ago, many of us had our own separate thoughts and opinions on these games.

After opening their 2024 season at home, the New Orleans Saints will hit the road for the first time in week two, traveling to Austin, Texas to face off with the Dallas Cowboys.
