Write End: Saints Reportedly Ink Deal to Trade Graham

Jimmy Graham became an instant hero in da Dome. Drew Brees’ favorite target thrilled WhoDats with his goalpost dunks and gaudy numbers. Then he became the source of controversy with contract arbitration, goalpost dunks, and not so gaudy numbers. Now, ESPN is reporting that a trade to Seattle will end Graham’s Saints days.

Black & Gold Untarnished in Pro Bowl

Who Dats had one last chance to watch the Black n’ Gold this season on Sunday (1.25) night. Several Saints played in the Pro Bowl, and they made the most of the night. Four of the game’s touchdowns were the work of New Orleans’ players.

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.
