The New Orleans Saints won't be signing free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown after his workout with the team on Friday morning, coach Sean Payton announced later in the day.

Payton confirmed the workout, but told reporters the visit amounted to "due diligence" and that Brown was among six receivers who worked out for the Saints.

NBC Sports is serving up a few days of Thanksgiving accompaniments in hopes of driving Turkey Day viewers to the main dish.

Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson is a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints, coach Kliff Kingsbury said Friday.

When quarterback Drew Brees injured his right thumb in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Rams, the New Orleans Saints' playoff hopes seemed to be over.

Forget younger sports fans cutting the cord, viewership for the NFL is as high as it's ever been.

There will be unfamiliar sights for fans of the New York Giants and the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, as their teams begin regular-season games without Eli Manning and Drew Brees respectively.

The New York Jets and the Miami Dolphins have, like the Giants, begun the season with back-to-back defeats and each face stern tests in Week 3.

The New Orleans Saints will be on a revenge mission when they do battle with the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Los Angeles claimed a dramatic 26-23 overtime win over New Orleans in the NFC Championship game in January and they are set for an early-season battle nine months later. Both sides got their seasons under way with victories and the Rams will have home advantage as they go in search of back-to-back successes.

He's still the top back in a good offense and I'm cool with taking the plunge at the Round 2-to-3 turn. RB Tier 4 - RB1 potential with some questions marks 13) Leonard Fournette, Jacksonville Jaguars 14) Kerryon Johnson, Detroit Lions 15) Damien Williams, Kansas City Chiefs 16) Aaron Jones, Green Bay Packers 17) Melvin Gordon, Los Angeles Chargers It can take some time to come around to but Leonard Fournette is a strong bounce-back candidate.
