Rise And New Orleans Saints: Top News, Videos And More

Jordan is one of just seven first round picks who has not come to terms or signed, the league’s website shows. Of the 32 players taken, 20 have signed and five more have agreed to terms.

Clear skies and tons of heat. Saints coach Sean Payton ended practice 30 minutes early on Day 4, saying that the lack of depth at offensive line – where three players are practicing at two positions – and cornerback – where the team ended the morning with three players – has taken its toll.

I expect Mark Ingram to become the primary ball-carrier — eventually. You don’t trade two high draft picks for a running back to sit him on the bench. He’s definitely the future back in New Orleans. How long that takes depends on his ability to pick up the Saints’ complex passing attack. Running backs don’t play in Sean Payton’s offense if they can’t protect the passer. But he should be a quick study.

Free agent defensive end Turk McBride has agreed to contract terms with the New Orleans Saints, adding depth at a position where the Saints may need it in the beginning of the season.

Throw in the fact that the Saints were able to get all of their 2011 draft picks signed, with exception to one, and in camp and what you have is an incredible job by an incredible front office. Like magic, a championship roster is nearly complete.
