New Orleans Saints’ Junior Galette dominates scrimmage, but still not satisfied

Will New Orleans Saints’ Renewed Focus On Running Benefit Drew Brees?

“Junior’s really come into his own. … Obviously I came in a perfect situation, to come in when this young man’s just finally hitting his stride. I think I had that similar success with Derrick Burgess, who’s one of the best players I ever coached,” Ryan said of Burgess, who came from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Oakland Raiders in 2005 and led the NFL with 16 sacks after having just 2.5 sacks the year before. “So I think this guy’s gonna be excellent,” Ryan continued. “He’s been excellent ever since I’ve been here. So like I said, I think I timed this thing out nice to get in here with this young, developing football player. This sucker’s gonna be great, and I just came in at the lucky time.” Ryan said the biggest emphasis with Galette is, “We just gotta calm him down a bit” because he said, “I heard rumors he’ll run out of gas.” That should come as no surprise to Saints fans who have followed Galette for the past three years. Both on and off the field, he has stood out as one of the Saints’ most energetic and excitable players.

“I saw people literally at the far end of Zephyr (Field) on the street,” Brees said. “And I went, ‘Is there a game today at the same time as our scrimmage our something like that?’ Then I realized they’re all in line to get into our field to come into our complex to watch our scrimmage.

Billionaire Saints Owner Tom Benson To Score $400 Million Revenue Boost From Agreement With State

Armstead has some good upside, but is very raw at this point. Safety: Between Malcolm Jenkins and Roman Harper , the team had a pair of starting safeties, but the Saints went ahead and drafted Kenny Vaccaro anyway. They didn’t use a first-round pick on him to have him sit on the bench, so he’ll take one of those jobs. Vaccaro might be a better free safety, though Jenkins is better than Harper at this point in their careers, so we might see Harper lose his starting job. Defensive end: The Saints are shifting to a 3-4 defense, so it’s hard to really pin down who are the defensive ends and who are the outside linebackers.

New Orleans Saints 2013 training camp primer


Specifically, fans can expect New Orleans to turn to the outside zone running game more often than they have in years past. This should come as welcome news to Saints fans. Last year, the Saints running game ranked 25 with a total of 1,577 yards off of only 370 attempts. Compare that to New Orleans Super Bowl season when they ran for 2,106 yards off of 468 attempts. Clearly, somewhere between the 2009 season and last years effort, New Orleans neglected their running game and paid the price for it. Although I have full faith and confidence inDrew Breesand his arm, I would like to see the running back committee ofDarren Sproles, Pierre Thomasand Mark Ingram play more of a role in the Saints offense.

Benson will get another $40 million from private rent payments to a tower he bought as part of the deal. The agreement was fully implemented for the first time last season. Because of the complexity of the deal, it has only recently become apparent how much Benson will make from it. The state directly paid the Saints $5 million in cash last season. An unusual clause in the lease says the state must pay the team $5 million every time the Super Bowl comes to New Orleans, even after the agreement expires. The city is launching a bid to host another Super Bowl in 2018. But the most valuable payments to the team are indirect subsidies. The state agreed to lease property Benson owns at a premium price, pay for renovations to the Superdome that would put more money in Bensons pockets and give the Saints owner bonus tax breaks. Business is thriving for Benson.
