RESERVE - If things had gone the way most people expected, Ryan Perrilloux would be preparing for an NFL preseason game instead of a high school jamboree this week. Perrilloux would have just played a snap or two, because that's what star NFL quarterbacks do in the preseason, especially veteran ones entering their eighth season in the league.
P.J. Williams admits the news stung a little bit. Keenan Lewis, after all, was one of the guys Williams looked up to in the locker room. Now the second-year cornerback gets to fill the shoes of Lewis, whom the Saints released last week. "It was definitely a bad feeling," Williams said.
Brother Martin cornerback Tre' Swilling will be following in his father's footsteps. Swilling, the son of former Saints linebacker Pat Swilling, announced on Twitter Monday night that he has committed to Georgia Tech. "I have decided to commit to Georgia Tech and continue the Swilling legacy that my father and uncle started," Swilling tweeted.
The New Orleans Saints first team offensive line, playing together for the first time this season preseason in Saturday's loss to the Houston Texans, struggled through most of the game. Sean Payton says "a little bit" of the problem could be caused by Andrus Peat being shuffled back and forth between left tackle and right guard during much of training camp.
Willie Snead, like fellow Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis, grew up in Palm Beach County, Florida. So Snead has an idea just why Lewis (and everybody else from that part of the country) is so darned quick on the football field. "I think it might be something in the water, to be honest with you," Snead explains.
The official rosters for the 2017 NBA-All Star game won't be announced until January. But the unofficial all-stars stood on the second floor of New Orleans' City Hall on Friday, a dream team of folks who somehow came together as the shot clock was winding down and helped nail the game-winning shot that is bringing the NBA All-Star Game back to the Big Easy in 2017.
You've heard the statistics about the Saints defense so many times since the end of last season that you're probably sick of them. But let me remind you one last time, perhaps closing the book on those woeful numbers. Dead last in the NFL in points allowed.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- For Saints linebacker Kasim Edebali, the trip to New England was like a homecoming. No, it wasn't Germany, where he grew up. But it was the next closest thing that he considers home.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - You've heard the statistics about the Saints defense so many times since the end of last season that you're probably sick of them. But let me remind you one last time, perhaps closing the book on those woeful numbers. Dead last in the NFL in points allowed.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The constant rain during the Saints' joint practice with the New England Patriots on Wednesday brought back memories for Tom Brady and Drew Brees. It was the same weather from 17 years ago when the two met on the football field for the first time.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. David Pogue)
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama +Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
