The New Orleans Saints' first of two joint practices with the New England Patriots went smoothly at the Greenbrier Wednesday with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady practicing but the Saints' five projected starters in the secondary out.

On today's edition of Black and Gold Today, sports reporter Rachel Whittaker interviews Patriots writer Kevin Duffy of Mass Live about Brady's status and that of cornerback Malcolm Butler, who struggled against Saints receivers Wednesday.

The New Orleans Saints made a big splash in the offseason when they traded away three-time Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham to Seattle. Graham was the most dominant force in the Saints' passing attack and the recipient of 46 Drew Brees touchdown passes over the last four seasons. Trading Graham was part of a bigger effort to revamp the Saints' offense.

In the absence of Graham, tight ends Josh Hill and Benjamin Watson have potential to carve out bigger roles.

The first preseason game should never be an indication of what an NFL team will do in the regular season. At least, I hope not. Thursday’s 30-27 loss at Baltimore revealed some striking similarities to the hobgoblins of 2014 in the form of unnecessary penalties, key injuries and the defense’s ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    New Orleans Saints cornerback Brandon Browner has been sidelined with a leg injury since Thursday's preseason opener, but he's not expected to be out for long. The Saints' top free-agent signing spoke recently with ESPN about the commanding presence he brings both on and off the field.

    hope 4Summer is over when Saints and colleges tee it up

    I hope you enjoyed your summer, because this is the week it ends. I know it’s a bit hard to realize as you soak in a cauldron of humid 90-degree days, but summer as you have known it and enjoyed it is over! Since this space is meant to inform as much as entertain, let us remind you that Labor Day on September 7 is the symbolic end to summer, although the scientific end does not come until the autumnal equinox when the sun crosses the plane of the earth’s equator around September 22.

    Payton2Coach Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints will have a chance to see if their decisions to cut sack-expert, Junior Galett, was a wise more or not.

    You can look at the Saints’ excommunication of Junior Galette from different points of view and all come to the same conclusion. Good riddance! Opinions are like a left elbow - everybody has one – but how each of the affected constituencies greeted the team’s sudden termination of the team's sacks leader tells a lot about Galette’s impact on last year’s 7-9 record and this year’s prospects as well. The pertinent points of view in the Galette case boil down to these three: The fans, the locker room and the organization.

    If you haven’t been following the Benson family soap opera that has dominated news across the state, you are missing a billion dollar power play that’s much better than fiction.  New Orleans automobile tycoon and sports icon Tom Benson is in a fight with family heirs over his competency to run two of the nation’s premier sports franchises, the New Orleans football Saints and the basketball NBA Pelicans.  And the family quarrel could put the continuing presence of these sports goldmines at risk of leaving New Orleans.
