Jimmy Graham, Saints Agree to New Contract


Updated 1:55 p.m.

NFC South stadiums should keep reinforcing their field goal posts. Jimmy Graham is set to remain in Black and Gold. The Saints agreed to terms on a long-term contract with the star Tight End, the team announced Tuesday. 


Deal Deadline Approaches for Jimmy Graham, Saints


The New Orleans Saints and Jimmy Graham are staring down a deadline to finish a contract deal that would keep goalposts rocking for the Black and Gold into the foreseeable future. But don't worry, WhoDat Nation. 5-Star and T-Bone have returned to help.


Ruling: Jimmy Graham is Tight End, Not Receiver


With the USMNT booted from the World Cup by Belgium, Crescent City football fans woke up on Wednesday looking forward to the American-bred version, and Saints season. Right on cue: the NFL set the stage for the final act of the offseason by declaring that, in league terms, Jimmy Graham is a tight end rather than a wide receiver.


Jimmy Graham Dunks Would End Under New NFL Rule


The NFL often encourages basketball references when it comes to Jimmy Graham, but apparently the league feels dunking is taking things a bit too far. The league has been weighing whether to make dunking the ball through the uprights a penalty, which would force the Saints tight end to change up his touchdown celebration.


Litany of The Saints

Looking Back at the 2013 Team, and a Peek at Next Season



It's been a week since the New Orleans Saints' season lateralled forward to its soggy conclusion in Seattle. Most New Orleanians have just tried to start getting ready for Mardi Gras, while the true football addicts have already tried to hide their separation anxiety under salary cap talk.


Saints, Brees Lock in to Cage Panthers, 31-13


Round one goes to the Black and Gold guys. For at least the next couple of weeks, the New Orleans Saints gained the upper hand in the NFC South race with a 31-13 throttling of the Carolina Panthers. A week after Seattle made them look like mere mortals, a night game in the Superdome was just the balm the Saints' needed to rise back into exalted territory.


Saints Nick Rundown: Vilma Out for Season, Sproles Cleared


The Saints' midweek injury reports are always a merry-go-round this time of year. This time, there's not a pony for everyone. After just one game back, longtime Saints defensive captain Jonathan Vilma was placed on the injured reserve, meaning he is out for the season. Meanwhile, running back Darren Sproles was reportedly cleared to play in the wake of being concussed in New Jersey.


Saints Recap: Black n' Gold Beat Buffalo Bills 35-17


The New Orleans Saints' offense was a little slow getting over the Bye Week Blues, but Breesus and his followers rebounded over the final 35 minutes of the game to dominate the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Sparked by a renewed connection with his wide receivers, Brees tossed five touchdown passes to jumpstart the Black and Gold toward a 35-17 victory at home in the Superdome.


Who D@?! Saints 6-1, Fans Post Victory Tweets

Bye Week Bits: 4 Reasons Saints Benefit From Break


If this were a normal autumn Sunday, New Orleans would be gearing up for the New Orleans Saints to take the field. But on this day, WhoDats have sadly stumbled upon a fate worse than Thursday night games on the NFL Network. It's the Saints' Bye Week. We'll try to second line to forget, but there will be a little hole in our Black and Gold hearts without any scores to follow or touchdown rituals to observe. Nevertheless, the Saints have more than a few things to think about after being left with the sour taste of Brady. Click through to read four observations that may help ease the Bye Week Blues:
