Dough Cut: Jimmy Graham Fined $30K for Dunks


The NFL announced that Jimmy Graham would be fined $33,000 dollars for two celebratory dunks in last week's pre-season matchup against the Titans. WhoDats love the distinct touchdown celebration as does Graham. However, the League and Coach Payton do not.


Saints Open Camp in West Va., Byrd on Injured List


Even though the Jimmy Graham deal is done, the New Orleans Saints are starting 2014 a little off-kilter. Training camp is in the mountains of West Virginia instead of the former swamps of Airline Highway. And, on Friday, the team put their star offseason free agency signing on the injured list.


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.
