Who Dat Dish: New Orleans Saints News, Rumors And Links For 5/2

Things are now cooling down for the New Orleans Saints with the draft over. The only major issue now is the team does not have a lot of cap room to make moves.

Oh, and implementing a new defense. And figuring out who starts at a plethora of positions. And figuring out what to do with rookies.

Maybe it’s busier than we thought. Let’s take a look.

 

ESPN Has the Saints’ Official Offseason Schedule

Per Pat Yasinskas:

The New Orleans Saints will hold their rookie minicamp May 10 through May 12. OTAs are scheduled for May 21 through May 23, May 28 through May 30 and June 10 through June 13. The mandatory minicamp is scheduled for June 4 through June 6.

 

NOLA.com Says Many Positions Are Up For Grabs This Preseason

Per Larry Holder the positions are:

 Tackle (left, and right?)

Safety

Wide receiver

Cornerback

Linebacker (outside and inside)

 

Canal Street Chronicles Says Mickey Loomis and Sean Payton Disagree on Free Agents

Per Gene Higginbotham:

Payton, when asked if the addition of Stills meant the unlikely re-signing of Henderson, said he “wouldn’t say that the door has been closed” as far as possibly retaining him in the receiving corps.

Loomis, however, had a different stance on the matter.

In an interview immediately following Payton’s, Loomis was also asked about Henderson, as well as free agents Scott Shanle and Sedrick Ellis. He didn’t beat around the bush when he answered, “Look, they’re free agents and probably not part of our plans for this year.”

Why the difference of opinion? It could just be Payton playing the diplomat while Loomis is just being realistic.
