Drew Brees is near the top

There are some great options for fantasy owners at the quarterback position, including Brees. But with such depth at the position, fantasy owners might want to wait before drafting the QB. Way-too-early fantasy rankings

The Saints re-signed CB Tony Carter, who was briefly on the roster last season but didn't appear in a game. Carter is a seven-year veteran who spent most of his career with the Denver Broncos. He has played in 45 games with three starts and three interceptions.

Saints' release of Evans not a surprise (3:13)

Jahri Evans' agent Jerrold Colton on Evans' release from the Saints: "Jahri has appreciated 10 great years. It's been a great run for a kid from Bloomsburg with a great city and a great organization. And he got to ride it out with one coach, one quarterback, a lot of the teammates he came in with. Too good to be true. It's sad that it's come to end, but now he's ready for the next chapter." Colton said Evans plans to keep playing elsewhere.

Saints release 6-time Pro Bowl guard Evans

The Saints released veteran guard Jahri Evans, who was a six-time Pro Bowler and a fixture on their Super Bowl team. New Orleans will save $3.1 million against the cap by cutting Evans.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

The Saints have released six-time Pro Bowl guard Jahri Evans, linebackers David Hawthorne and Ramon Humber and WR Seantavius Jones, according to ESPN's Field Yates. Evans' release is a mild surprise since he's one of New Orleans' all-time greats and a 10-year starter who was still playing at a decent level. But not a shocker since he is 32 and was due $4.9 million in salary and bonuses this year. A total of $3 million would have become guaranteed on Wednesday. Now the Saints have a gaping hole at RG.

Browner among mistakes for Saints

Not many free-agent deals worked out worse than the one New Orleans gave CB Brandon Browner last offseason, Mike Sando writes. With that and Andrus Peat's lackluster rookie season in mind, New Orleans' grade takes a dive. 2015 offseason re-grade (Insider)
