  Saints | Michael Thomas requires surgeries     Tue Jan 19, 11:34 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) is likely to have multiple surgeries on the torn deltoid and other injured ligaments in his high ankle this offseason.

Footballguys view: Thomas worked through a high-ankle sprain for most of the seven games he played in the regular season. He came back for the playoffs because he didn't want to miss out on the (likely) final playoff run of Drew Brees. Now, Thomas has plenty of time to get back to full strength and then work with whoever the new starter in New Orleans is next season.

  Saints | Drew Brees doesn't reveal plans    Mon Jan 18, 01:19 AM

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees did not officially announce his retirement following the team's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, Jan. 17, instead indicating he'd take 'an opportunity to think about the season' and make his decision later.

Footballguys view: Jay Glazer had reported on Sunday that Brees was going to retire when the Saints season was done. They lost to the Buccaneers in the Divisional Round which means Brees may be retiring later this year. He'll take some time to come to a decision but things appear like he's leaning towards hanging his cleats up.

  Saints | NO hoping to retain Jameis Winston     Sat Jan 16, 01:13 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Jameis Winston is an unrestricted free agent after this season, but the Saints like what they've seen of him, according to a report Saturday, Jan. 16, and want to bring him back with the possibility that QB Drew Brees could retire this offseason.

Footballguys view: Winston did not start when the Saints lost Brees for a few games. Instead, Taysom Hill was the team's starter and Winston was his backup. We'll see if he wants to stay with the team or if another team gives him a clearer shot to be a starter in 2021.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has not made an official statement about his playing future, but he is expected to retire once the season is over, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
