Chase Young To Have Neck Procedure, Miss Part Of Camp

Mar 20, 2024 8:38 AM

New Orleans Saints defensive end Chase Young is expected to miss part of training camp after undergoing a neck procedure, according to a source.

Young signed a one-year deal worth a guaranteed $13 million following his visit with the Saints on Monday. The Saints were among the teams aware of the neck issue.

He missed the Washington Commanders' season opener last season because of a neck stinger sustained in the first preseason game. While Young was initially expected to delay his return until Week 3, he played the next week and did not miss another game in 2023.

Saints, Tyrann Mathieu Close To Renegotiated Contract

Mar 7, 2024 9:02 AM

The New Orleans Saints and Tyrann Mathieu are working on a renegotiated contract and expect to have it done soon, according to a report.

Because of how his contract is structured, cutting Mathieu would only save the Saints about $1.7 million in cap space this year.

Reworking the contract can result in greater cap savings this year -- at the expense of a bigger cap charge next year.

Mickey Loomis Backs Dennis Allen, Derek Carr

Jan 18, 2024 8:33 AM

New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis publicly backed Dennis Allen and Derek Carr on Wednesday.

Loomis said some changes needed to be made after the Saints missed the playoffs for the third straight season. They let go offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael, wide receivers coach Kodi Burns and senior offensive assistant Bob Bicknell.

"That's the first standard ... of a successful season: make the playoffs," he said. "And so if you don't make the playoffs, then I don't think you can say you've had a successful season. So, we didn't have a successful season this year."

Loomis said it would be lazy to place all of the blame on the head coach or quarterback.

"So I think the easy thing to do is just look at the results and say, 'Oh no, we've got to have a change.' You got to look beyond that," Loomis said.

"What are the reasons why we were 9-8 instead of 13-4? And look, it's collective. It's the players, it's the coaches, it's me, it's our personnel staff, our roster. It's variables sometimes that we don't have any control of. My assessment is Dennis Allen is a good coach. And again, with Sean Payton, we went 10-6 the first year, but then we were 7-9, 8-8. I heard some of the same noise, but at the time I knew we had a good football coach and so I think sometimes the hard thing to do is to be patient and recognize your other shortcomings and get those fixed, and that's what we're doing."
