Who Dat Dish: New Orleans Saints News, Rumors And Links For 7/16


A great thing about the NFL offseason is players have so much free time to get involved with charities and the like. The NEw Orleans Saints have more activity in this regard than most teams each year.

Outside of looking at some charity work, we’ll also examine how much the Saints are worth. Let’s take a look.

 

More Saints in Charity Golf Tournaments

Per NOLA.com’s Susie Newburger:

New Orleans Saints players Garrett Hartley, Thomas Morstead and Justin Drescher participated in the Swing for a Cure Golf Tournament at the Tchefuncta Country Club in Covington. They were part of a special golf foursome made up of Benjamin Wessel of Metairie, his brothers Nick and Chris, a few cousins and a few close friends.

The tournament benfited Cure JM Foundation, a nonprofit, volunteer-managed organization dedicated to finding a cure for Juvenile Myositis (JM).

It would have been easy for the Saints to have emotionally been drained even prior to this game. The opening two games were on the road. There was no true home during the preseason as the Superdome was being repaired and training camp was in Jackson, Miss.

Beginning with the blocked punt by Steve Gleason, which still resonates today as one of the seminal moments in New Orleans’ sporting history, the Saints and the crowd never let up.

 

The Saints Are Worth A Good Amount of Cash

Per ESPN’s Pat Yasinskas:

 The New Orleans Saints are No. 36 at $971 million. The Atlanta Falcons are No. 44 at $837 million.
