It sounds like Drew Brees won't be at the Saints' offseason program when it starts Monday. That's the only logical conclusion after he ducked a repeated question about if he'll be in attendance.
Darren Sharper has downplayed the New Orleans "bounty" scandal since the day the story broke, so don't be surprised to learn he doesn't believe Saints players should be penalized by the NFL.
Though New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees largely sidestepped questions Tuesday about his team's "bounty" scandal, the reigning NFL Offensive Player of the Year maintained the NFL had dished out improper punishment.
While Bill Parcells loomed as a natural fit to fill in for Sean Payton as coach of the New Orleans Saints, turning down the job was the right decision.
Bill Parcells has informed the New Orleans Saints that he will not replace suspended coach Sean Payton on an interim basis for the 2012 season and is staying retired, a league source said Tuesday.
Former Saints O-lineman Kyle Turley, who played with ferocity in the NFL, can't believe the nerve of Gregg Williams and the team's "bounty" program. "Players, to coaches, are more than expendable. This just proved it."
The New Orleans Times-Picayune reported Monday that Saints owner Tom Benson has spoken with NBA Commissioner David Stern about purchasing the NBA's Hornets.
New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton, assistant coach Joe Vitt and general manager Mickey Loomis cannot speak with each other while suspended, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, citing NFL rules.
The New Orleans Saints officially are in search of an interim head coach for the 2012 season after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld Sean Payton's suspension on Monday. But if Pro Football Hall of Fame candidate Bill Parcells is in line to lead the team next season, the move would be news to him.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld the discipline that was imposed to the New Orleans Saints and three coaches for continuing violations of the league's anti-bounty rule that the league said endangered player safety over a three-year period.
