Drew Brees’s contract is a huge question mark for the Saints this offseason. The quarterback turned 39 on Monday, and is a free agent in March. Brees and the Saints front office have been coy so far about contract negotiations, but Brees says he hopes to have a deal before the free agent deadline. The quarterback says this young, talented group is a great incentive to stick around with his favorite team…

There have been a lot of heart breaking losses during the Saints 50-year history, but Sunday's stunning defeat in Minneapolis may top them all. A 61-yard touchdown pass from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs on the final play of regulation gave the Vikings an improbable 29-24 victory over New Orleans.

It was far from easy, but the Saints advanced in the NFC playoffs with a 31-26 win over divisional rival Carolina. It came down to the final drive. Carolina drove to the Saints 21-yard line, but New Orleans defense began to push back and finished the game sacking Panthers quarterback Cam Newton for a third time.

The Saints lose to Tampa Bay 31-24 in the final seconds, but still win the NFC South and they’ll host Carolina for a playoff game this weekend. Head Coach Sean Payton wishes they finished the game better.
"There will be a handful of things we'll look at to quickly get cleaned up and then here we go, we get started, a good week of preparation and start a whole new season."

The Saints were in position to all but lock up the NFC South crown on Thursday night, but Quarterback Drew Brees' pass into the end zone was intercepted by former LSU Tiger Deion Jones to preserve a 20-17 win over Atlanta.
The loss drops the Saints record 9-4. The Black and Gold are still in first place, but Carolina moved a half-a-game closer to 8-4 and Atlanta is now 8-5.

The Saints nearly blew a 35-point lead, but an opportunistic Black and Gold defense preserved a 52-38 victory over the Detroit Lions. The Saints defense, which looked very bad at the beginning of the season, forced five turnovers and scored a franchise record three touchdowns in one game. Head Coach Sean Payton credits the pressure put on Detroit QB Matthew Stafford.

Michelle Southern reporting.
Following the Panthers game Sunday, Saints Quarterback Drew Brees and Coach Sean Payton each responded to President Donald Trump’s comments regarding players who do not stand during the national anthem. The President said owners should, “get that son of a b” off the field, and fire those who protest racial inequality in that way. Payton says he is disappointed in Mr. Trump’s position.
