As (yet another) hurricane is brewing, the New Orleans Saints discussed relocating to Indianapolis to practice and potentially play Monday night's game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Today that doesn't look to be the case, and the team will stay put in Louisiana.
There's a lot of time between now and Monday night, and hurricanes can be unpredictable (especially this year), so I hope this ends up working out for them. There have been reports that the storm is strengthening again, but I am not a meteorologist.
The Saints also requested 25 percent capacity open for fans, but New Orleans mayor LaToya Cantrell denied the request.
The New Orleans Saints beat Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, but not for free. Star wide receiver Michael Thomas injured his ankle in that win, but plans to play through it.
The Saints have an extra day - they don't play until next Monday night, against the Las Vegas Raiders, so this isn't too unbelievable. The Saints should be lucky they got out of this one (almost) scot-free.
Just when the New Orleans Saints thought they were in the clear... Running back Alvin Kamara hasn't made it to practice in three days, and the reason? His contract. Something he said he was good with earlier this month.
Kamara is in the final year of his rookie deal. He is due to make just over $2 million this season, which doesn't match his playing abilities adequately.
Earlier in August, Kamara stated that his contract didn't worry him. With two weeks until the season begins, something had to have changed between then and now. If the Saints don't get this sorted out, they will have a problem at running back.
Who else feels like we've been through this same storyline the past two years?
While speaking to reporters ahead of training camp, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees was asked if he'd hang up the cleats after the 2020 season. Brees didn't give a clear answer, because of course not.
I highly can relate to Brees' "one day at a time" approach, as it's the reality of what we're all living in right now, and honestly, who tf knows what this NFL season will look like? How much would you regret retiring after a season where only four games were able to be played (hypothetically)?
I thought last season would be his last. I also thought the season before last would be his last. So guess where I stand with this one?
