Saints' Eldridge Massington: Inks deal with New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Massington signed with the Saints on Wednesday, Joel A. Erickson of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.

Massington was brought aboard in hopes of providing a spark on special teams. The Texas native saw a drop in production during his senior season at UCLA, but the Saints appear to be drawn to Massington's size (6-foor-2, 210 pounds) and speed. Somewhat of a late addition, Massington will have to put on the jets early and often if he hopes to stay awhile.

Saints' Alvin Kamara: May not see huge workload
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saints head coach Sean Payton and running backs coach Joel Thomas both said they don't want to drastically increase Kamara's workload while Mark Ingram is suspended for the first four games of the season, NFL.com's Herbie Teope reports. "I think it would be a disservice to him," Thomas said. "Let's be honest here -- he's excelled with the ratio he's had, whether it's the carries or the combination with the catches, as well. It's almost a number that you want to get to that he's still getting the touches that he's had in the past. But maybe they occur through two, three or four more carries, and two or three less receptions."

While it would make sense to use their other running backs to absorb part of Ingram's rushing workload, Kamara nonetheless figures to notice some type of uptick -- at least temporarily -- from last year's average of 12.6 touches per game (7.5 carries, 5.1 catches). The team already upped Kamara's workload a bit at the end of last season, giving him between nine and 12 carries in Weeks 15-17 and both playoff games. It won't come as any surprise if he pushes for around 15-to-20 touches per game while Ingram is out of the lineup. Trey Edmunds, Boston Scott, Jonathan Williams and Daniel Lasco (neck) figure to compete for a role alongside Kamara for Weeks 1-4, unless the Saints add a veteran to fill the void.

Saints' Jay Bromley: Signs with New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bromley signed a contract with the Saints on Monday, Joel A. Erickson of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.

Bromley is coming off a four-year stint with the Giants where he appeared in every regular season game but one over the last three seasons. He did, however, start just four games last season and only accumulated 21 total tackles and one sack. He'll now have a fresh start in New Orleans where he will provide depth on the defensive line.

Saints' Michael Ola: Inking one-year contract with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ola is signing a one-year deal with the Saints, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.

Ola tried out for the Saints over the weekend and will add depth at tackle behind starters Terron Armstead and Ryan Ramczyk. The 30-year-old journeyman played for the Chargers in 2017, appearing in two games.

Saints' Mark Ingram: Expected to show at minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (suspension) will not participate in OTAs, but he is expected to join the club for mandatory minicamp in June, ESPN reports.

The NFL tagged Ingram with a four-game suspension for the use of a banned substance, and the league has already heard and denied his appeal. Coming off career-high marks across the board for rushing yards (1,124), rushing touchdowns (12), receptions (58) and receiving yards (416), the veteran tailback will cede the early-season lead role to Alvin Kamara. Coach Sean Payton indicated that the Saints don't have any immediate plans to add a veteran back, suggesting Trey Edmunds, rookie Boston Scott, Jonathan Williams and Daniel Lasco (neck) -- who have combined for just 47 regular-season carries -- would be candidates for some carries in the early going. The league should reinstate Ingram for Week 5 against the Redskins.
