  Saints | Demario Davis agrees to extension    Fri Jun 24, 01:41 PM

New Orleans Saints LB Demario Davis agreed to an updated contract and a one-year extension, according to a source on Friday, June 24. Davis' updated deal includes $2 million in yearly incentives from 2022-24, no cap impact in 2022, and his 2023 base salary drops from $8.5 million to $8.25 million (with $1 million guaranteed) but now has a $250,000 workout bonus. In 2024, Davis can make up to $14 million via a $10 million base salary, a $2 million roster bonus, and another $2 million in incentives.

Footballguys view: Davis is the quarterback of the defense and not going anywhere any time soon. His dead cap number for 2023 (13+ million) ensures that he'll stay on the roster, but now terms for his 2024 compensation have been set.

  Cowboys | Micah Parsons eyeing sack record    Fri Jun 24, 10:33 AM

Dallas Cowboys LB Micah Parsons said his goal is to get 23 sacks this season to break the single-season record.

Footballguys view: It might be tough for him to do that with the Cowboys losing Randy Gregory in free agency, but if Dante Fowler can regain his form under his former coach Dan Quinn, the Cowboys and Parsons will both benefit. Parsons remains an elite IDP option at linebacker heading into this season.

Free-agent RB David Johnson (Texans) and LB Joe Schobert (Steelers) are participating in the New Orleans Saints minicamp this week on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Johnson is no longer the same player he used to be, especially as a runner, but he can provide value as a receiver out of the backfield. The Saints are trying to establish a depth chart behind their top two backs; Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram.

  Saints | Joe Schobert meeting with New Orleans    Fri Jun 10, 02:34 PM

Free-agent LB Joe Schobert (Steelers) is visiting with the New Orleans Saints on Friday, June 10.

Footballguys view: Schobert was a late summer addition for the Steelers, but the team decided to sign his former teammate Myles Jack this offseason instead of sticking with him next to Devin Bush. He'll help a lot more in coverage than against the run and could help with the Saints inexperience at linebacker after Demario Davis.

  Saints | New Orleans adds two, lets two go    Mon May 16, 04:37 PM

Free-agent RB Devine Ozigbo (Patriots) and LB Eric Wilson (Texans) signed undisclosed contracts with the New Orleans Saints on Monday, May 16. The Saints also waived C Cohl Cabral and LB Joel Dublanko.

Footballguys view: Ozigbo has bounced around the league a bit over the last few years, and he's been with the Saints a couple of times since 2019. The Saints have a jam-packed backfield, so Ozigbo faces an uphill battle to make the 53-man roster. If you're looking for a sleeper in that backfield, we recommend stashing undrafted rookie Abram Smith (Baylor) in deeper leagues.
