Saints' Vincent Brown: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday due to his ailing calf, Josh Katzenstein of the Times-Picayune reports.

Brown moving to the injured reserve reserve list opens up a spot in the Saints' wide receiver competition, as he was expected to compete for a roster spot due to his level of experience. However, the veteran wideout wasn't expected to achieve much fantasy relevance in the case that he did make the roster.

Saints' Jairus Byrd: Finally healthy to start training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Byrd was not placed on the Saints' active/PUP list for the first time in his three-year career in New Orleans, ESPN.com reports.

Though healthy for the start of camp, Byrd did miss the entirety of the Saints' offseason program rehabbing the knee injury that has plagued him since inking a six-year, $54 million deal ahead of the 2014 season. Hopefully, for the Saints, Byrd's 2016 training camp presence will smoothly translate to an improved performance in the upcoming campaign for a New Orleans secondary that allowed the 31st-most passing yards in the NFL during 2015.

Saints' Hau'oli Kikaha: Placed on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kikaha (knee) was placed on the Saints' active/PUP list, ESPN.com reports.

Kikaha had torn his left ACL during the Saints' offseason program in June, so his placement on the PUP list is an optimistic move by GM Mickey Loomis that will give the second-rounder an outside chance of returning later on in the season.

Saints' Vincent Brown: Will begin camp on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (undisclosed) will begin training camp on the Saints' active/PUP list, ESPN.com reports.

The Saints took a flier on Brown in an effort to deepen their wide out corps in May, presumably to add a veteran presence in the aftermath of Marques Colston's release. Being how Brandin Cooks, Brandon Coleman, Willie Snead and Michael Thomas combine for three years of NFL experience, Brown, a five-year NFL veteran, has more experience than the top-four wide receivers currently atop the Saints' depth chart. Should Brown make the final 53-man roster out of camp, he will remain unlikely to achieve fantasy relevance in 2016.

Saints' Drew Brees: No contract extension expected before training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Unless something changes in the next few days, Brees (foot) will not have a new contract in place before the Saints kick off training camp, reports Mike Triplett of ESPN.com. Brees, however, has insisted that he will not hold out or skip any practice time, and he fully participated in OTAs and minicamp. Saints' veterans report to training camp in West Virginia on Wednesday.

Brees is entering the last year of his contract, but the Saints appear content to let him play out the year with a whopping salary-cap figure of $30 million. Brees has stated that the unofficial deadline to complete an extension is the start of the regular season. Given that Brees continues to be productive -- he led the NFL in passing for the fourth time in five seasons last year with 4,870 yards in just 15 games played -- it would not be surprising to see the Saints and their franchise quarterback strike a deal prior to September 1.
