In news that should not surprise you, there is not a lot going on in the world of the New Orleans Saints. What about rookie minicamp, you ask? Well, every media outlet would have more information if the camp was actually open to the media!
In other words, there isn’t much else going on—but that won’t stop us.
Let’s take a look at the news and speculation flying around the Saints today.
Per Profootballtalk’s Darin Gantt:
But the Saints joined the Lions in signing their entire draft class, when they inked third-round defensive tackle John Jenkins to a four-year deal.
The Saints signed first-round safety Kenny Vaccaro and their other three picks yesterday.
The 6-foot-3, 359-pound Jenkins could work his way into an early role at nose tackle, as the Saints transition to a 3-4 defense.
Per Mike Triplett:
Although Ingram has yet to deliver on his Heisman Trophy-winning potential in the NFL, his attitude about sharing the load in New Orleans has always been outstanding. And that remained the case when I caught up with him Wednesday night, where he was cheering on teammates at the Black and Gold Hoops challenge.
Ingram acknowledged that he had hoped to make a bigger impact in the NFL by this point. But he insisted that he won’t put his own goals ahead of the team goals.
Per AL.com’s Mike Herndon:
Duron Carter hasn’t played a football game in more than two years. Now he’s trying again to earn an opportunity to play one in the NFL.
Carter, the one-time Alabama receiver and son of NFL great Cris Carter, is among the undrafted rookies scheduled to try out for the club in a rookie mini-camp this weekend with the New Orleans Saints.
