From the Saints Sideline

Saints tender LB Casillas, no movement yet on other restricted free agents |
Bradley Handwerger - The Saints offered a restricted free-agent tender to linebacker Jonathan Casillas, a league source said Saturday. (Know why he has to cite a league source? Because the local guys don't get s*** first, EVER.)

New Orleans Saints offer tender to restricted free agent linebacker Jonathan Casillas |
Mike Triplett - reports Casillas was tendered at lowest level, with no draft-pick compensation. (Triplett has to link to Pat Y. because the local guys don't get s*** first...EVER.)

Saints make tender to Jonathan Casillas - NFC South Blog |
Pat Y. - (Source material for the local guys.) The New Orleans Saints have given a tender to just one of their three restricted free agents. (brought to you first, by No.1SaintFan, who, as I have frequently mentioned as of late, is hard at work on the J-O-B)

New Orleans Saints make some moves, get some salary cap space |
Mike Triplett with some Saints news and notes from Friday.


Bountygate has Become Tiresome

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees says he didn't participate in any bounty program |
Mike Triplett - He wrote a letter to fans. (so take a letter Maria...address it to my wife...say I won't be comin' home...I'm gonna start a new life)

QB Brees denies knowledge of bounty | The Advocate
Associated Press - Drew Brees said he has never participated in and was never aware of a "real" bounty program, and there would be no place for players being provided incentives to intentionally injure one another in any sport. (No local writers were even needed for this story.)

Tulane Coach Curtis Johnson says he has no knowledge of any bounty program with Saints |
Lyons Yellin (one hell of a pen name...almost as good as this one - Tigers Growlin) - Tulane's Curtis Johnson is using spring practice to ensure his team doesn't have any surprises during the season. However, the coach himself, hasn't been quite so lucky.



Panthers give tenders to two - NFC South Blog |
All this talk about tenders is making me hungry.

Around the NFC South - NFC South Blog |
Pat Y. - Let's take a look at the top Saturday morning headlines from around the NFC South.

Film of the NFC South chat - NFC South Blog |
Pat Y. - Friday's NFC South chat was loaded with talk about the Saints' bounty program. But we also talked a lot about free agency and a little bit about the draft (what, did someone open a window or something?).

Redskins' epic swap with Rams not without precedent |
Guess which trade Marc Sessier compares this deal to first?

Start of Free Agency Is Beginning of N.F.L.'s Frenzied Off-Season |
Judy Battista - N.F.L. teams can begin their pursuit of free agents beginning on Tuesday as the league's 2012 (off-)season gets off to a frenzied start.
