The New Orleans Saints decided to make a couple moves to their current roster, including locking up one of their own to make sure he stays with the Saints.

It may be the Saturday before the New Orleans Saints take the field on Sunday, but that doesn't mean there can't still be some moves. Granted, it's nothing that will set the NFL world on fire, but they are still updates nonetheless.

It was announced that the Saints will be locking up Carl Granderson to a contract extension, and suffice to say, based on the way he, not to mention the rest of the defense, have been playingm it is well earned.

Going into the season, there was a some intrigue over who would start opposite Cameron Jordan on the defensive line, and how it would go. Granderson has answered the call with great aplomb.

On the other side of the ball, the Saints announced that they have placed Jamaal Williams on injured reserve. This means he will be out the next four games. Fortunately, Alvin Kamara will be returning from his suspension next week, and as far as this week goes, Kendre Miller appears to be healthy and good to go.

Given how the schedule is laid out for the Saints, they should be in prime position to make a run by the time all of their horses have returned to the stable. Locking up Granderson in their trenches is simply a blessing.

There is never a dull moment in the world of the NFL, and nobody needes to tell the New Orleans Saints that. The moves they are making should have an impact not only this year, but for years to come. For now though, all of the focus is on the Green Bay Packers and their new-look offense.
