New Orleans Saints: Alex Baron Signs, Darren Sproles, Peyton Manning, Deuce McAllister
Written by 

The New Orleans Saints have signed former Dallas Cowboy, and St. Louis Rams offensive tackle Alex Barron.

Barron is a seven-year veteran who has started 75 of 87 games in his career.

 New Saints running back Darren Sproles will quickly become a favorite of Drew Brees. Sproles is willing to play a complementary role. He is a slasher who can catch passes, play on special teams and even barrel his way between tackles. Also, he's a terrific playoff player...Peyton Manning on signing a new contract that will pay him $69 million the first three years: "It is official that I will be an Indianapolis Colts far my entire career. I will not play for another team. My last down of football will be with the Colts."...

SOME hither, others yon: A home in Luling owned by former Saints running back Deuce McAllister sold for $888,000 on July 27. The sale stems from a writ of seizure resulting from a lawsuit by Whitney National Bank against McAllister. According to the writ, McAllister owes $1.8 million on the mortgage with Whitney for almost $2 million in defaulted loans and interest payments...Voo Doo receiver/return specialist P.J. Perry has worked out for the Saints...LSU reports for fall practice on Wednesday with the fiurst workout set for Thursday. The Tigers are ready, are you?...

Legendary Raiders punter Ray Guy's Super Bowl XI, XV and XVIII rings are being sold at auction. The former Southern Mississippi star recently filed for bankruptcy and was ordered by a judge to sell the rings money to pay off debts. Bidding is under way and they will be sold next Tuesday to the high bidder. All three rings are being offered in one lot. The rings had a current high bid of $6,727 as of Monday night, but are expected to sell for between $75,000 and $90,000.
