He added that Saints receivers needed to do a better job of securing passes on those particular reps.But that didnt mean that the New Orleans receiving core hasnt had a good week in the Sunshine State.McAllister specifically said he thought the Saints receivers as a whole were impressive against the Chargers.He pointed out receivers Cyril Grayson and Simmie Cobbs as players with strong efforts Friday as well as tight end Dan Arnold. McAllister also said Saints defensive backs have made nice plays in the joint workouts as well.He said cornerback Eli Apple had some nice reps along with PJ Williams and the Saints top cornerback Marshon Lattimore.I think we take him for granted sometimes, McAllister told Sports Talks Bobby Hebert and Deuce McAllister. Marshon Lattimore had two really nice coverages one where he really should have almost got an interception. He was late breaking on the ball but he still was able to know it down and one on a deep route they tried him and he basically had perfect coverage.The Saints are back in action Sunday afternoon as the face the Chargers in a preseason matchup at 3 p.m. Categories: Sports NFL Saints Tags: Saints Comments

The dynamic duo returned to team drills today signaling they are healthy and ready to roll.Cyril Grayson still fighting for a roster spotThe former LSU track star has speed on his side, but you need more than that to make it in the NFL. Towards the end of practice, in the 2 minute drill, he made a touchdown grab when quarterback Taysom Hill hit him on a skinny post. Coach Payton said after practice that Grayson needs to show more consistency though. The 25 year old has a few more weeks to refine his technique and tighten up on some of the details of being a wide receiver.Starters to see more time SundayAgainst the Vikings in preseason game 1, the first-teamers of the Saints didnt see much action.

3 big reasons Saints unlikely to trade for Jadeveon Clowney
08/15/2019 7:21pm

USA TODAY Sports 3 reasons Saints unlikely to trade for Jadeveon Clowney Money, money, and. . .DavenportAugust 15, 2019 Seth Dunlap functione,tift.ymvoid 0t.ymvar me.createElementscriptm.typetext/javascript,m.async0,m.src//static.yieldmo.com/ym.m5.js,e.getElementsByTagNamehead0e.getElementsByTagNamebody0.appendChildmelse t.ym instanceof Stringvoid 0t.ym.chkPlst.ym.chkPlsdocument,windowThe Jadeveon Clowney Trade Hype Machine is at runaway speed currently. Nearly every NFL team has, in some way, been linkedto rumors about how they can acquire the sixth-year defensive end from the Houston Texans. The Saints have been one of those teams and, if social media is any indication, fans are hoping the former South Carolina star lands in New Orleans.While Clowney would undoubtedly upgrade the Saints pass rush -- his nine sacks last season would be good enough for second on the team -- there are a few reasons why its highly unlikely hell wind up in a Black & Gold uniform. Lets quickly throw a little cold water on these trade rumors:1. Clowneys $16 mil salary is prohibitive, so is his franchise tagSure, Mickey Loomis is a master of salary cap manipulation. The Saints general manager seems to always find a way to sign the players he and Sean Payton want on their team. But Clowneys $16 million cap hitfor 2019 would put the Saints roughly $9.5 million over the cap. Thats a manageable number in March, but fairly prohibitive just a few weeks before the regular season. The Texans also used the franchise tag on Clowney, meaning other teams wouldnt be eligible to sign him to a long-term contract until this offseason. If hes not reporting to camp in Houston, do you think hed report in New Orleans just because the Saints promise him a deal this offseason Plus, would the Saints really feel comfortable renting a nine-sack player theyd have to bid against the rest of the NFL to keep next springNow, they could unload some salary in a return deal for Clowney but, remember, it takes two to tango. Would the Texans agree to swap Clowney for, say, Andrus Peat Peat is making $9.6 million and would neatly clear just enough cap space for Clowney on the roster. But, speaking of Peat. . .2. A Clowney-for-Peat trade is almost assuredly wont happenNot straight up, anyways. First, Peat isnt a player anywhere near Clowneys caliber. Pro Football Focus graded Peat at a 39.2 last season, among the worst starting guards in the NFL. Peat has some built in excuses, including multiple injuries around him, and being forced to play left tackle for large stretches in Terron Armsteads absence. But it would be a surprise if the Texans were ready to deal away a potential double-digit sack machine for a guard who would be adowngradeover the guys currently on their roster. Former Saints lineman Senio Kelemete is the projected starter at left guard and graded out at a 55.6 by PFF. Zach Fulton is the Texans probable starter at right guard and graded out at a 52.6. No, those arent stellar grades, but they are markedly better than Peats. Notwithstanding trying to prevent a riot by the Texans fan base should they trade a Pro Bowl caliber pass rusher for a potential back-up offensive lineman, the Houston front office will almost assuredly receive better offers than a Clowney-for-Peat swap. The Saints would likely have to sweeten the pot a bit for them to bite.3.Do the Saints want to limit Marcus Davenports snaps againThe Saints paid a premium price to draft Marcus Davenport in the 2018 draft. At some point theyre going to need to find out if he was worth the investment. He certainly looked like he was for the first half of last season, when he accumulated 4.5 sacks and was highly effective in limited snaps. Aright foot injury derailed his development, and Davenport was non-effective when he returned later in the season. With Alex Okafor, last years starter ahead of Davenport, no longer on the roster, the team is expecting big things from Davenport in year two. Would the Saints really want to limit Davenports snaps again, and possibly slow down his development Its a bit rare anymorewhenany first round pickisnt a year-one starter for their team. Its even more rare when that player isnt starting by his second season. If New Orleans does pull the trigger on a Clowney trade, then consider that a pretty huge indictment on Davenports development, andwhat theyre seeing from Davenport during training camp and preseason.---To be clear, its not that I think the Saintswonttrade for Jadeveon Clowney. There are just multiple hurdles they have to navigate to get there. But if they dont think Marcus Davenport is ready to a big role in this defense by year two, then why did they use two first and one fifth round pick to select him in last years draft Theres been no indication any member of the coaching staff or front office has been disappointed by Davenports progress this offseason, so it would come as a surprise if they sent a loud-and-clear message that he wasnt ready for a prominent role on this defense.But hey, a Clowney-Davenport-Cam Jordan trio doesnt sound so bad.

It was really good competition.McAllister also singled out Saints kicker Wil Lutz, saying he looked a great deal better than the Chargers Michael Badgley.The height he was able to get on the ball, I think sometimes you take that for granted. It was a noticeable difference, McAllister said.Strief and McAllister were also impressed by third-year defensive end Trey Hendrickson.A lot of people feel like this is the year he needs to make a jump, Strief said.This has to be the year. The talent is there, McAllister added. Whether he was on the left side or the right side, he was able to get consistent pressure. He was just living in the backfield.Strief and McAllister made these observations and more as part of a Facebook video immediately after practice.
