Saints | Brandon Browner to be released

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 09:12:21 -0800

Updating a previous item, New Orleans Saints CB Brandon Browner will be released by the team, according to sources. By league rules the Saints can't cut him until after the Super Bowl. Browner will cost $6.3 million against the salary cap in 2016 and is due $5 million in salary and bonuses, including $2.75 million fully guaranteed. New Orleans will save $950,000 in cap space and $2.25 million in cash if they wait until after March 9 to release him. Browner was flagged for 24 penalties (21 accepted) this year, which was the most by any player in a season since at least 2001.

Saints | No talks for Drew Brees yet

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 13:52:52 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said any conversations with the Saints regarding a contract extension have not happened yet.

Fantasy Tip: There's still plenty of time for Brees and the Saints to get an extension done. Even if he doesn't sign an extension this year, he'll likely still be quarterbacking the Saints in 2016. It's hard to believe an extension isn't in the cards for Brees, though. Draft him as a QB1 again this year.

Saints | Khiry Robinson jogging

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 15:32:19 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (leg) has been cleared for jogging. Robinson is recovering from a broken leg he suffered late last season.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson will have to contend with Tim Hightower and C.J. Spiller, if Spiller even returns, for backup repetitions next season. Robinson isn't worth drafting at this point.

Saints | Ben Watson wants to return

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 13:08:39 -0800

New Orleans Saints impending free-agent TE Benjamin Watson said he would love to stay in New Orleans, adding that he has had good talks with owner Mickey Loomis and head coach Sean Payton about re-signing.

Fantasy Tip: Watson was a valuable part of the Saints high-flying offense in 2015, posting career-highs in catches (74) and yards (825), and tied his career-high in touchdowns (6). Who knows if he'll be used as much as he was last season, if he does return, but keep him in your TE1 options heading into next season.

Saints | Drew Brees could sign extension

Sat, 23 Jan 2016 10:51:06 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees could sign a multi-year extension this offseason and still save the Saints millions against their cap, according to ESPN.com's Mike Triplett.

Fantasy Tip: It's somewhat of a complicated situation, but Brees' contract could be structured so that it saves the Saints money against their salary cap over the next few years. The bottom line is that he'll probably still be playing in New Orleans next season. He had somewhat of an underachieving 2015 campaign by his standards, but he's still a QB1.
