The New Orleans Saints have not yet named a head coach for the 2022 season, but it appears a front-runner for the job has emerged.

On Saturday’s edition of SportsCenter, ESPN insider Jeremy Fowler revealed that Saints defensive coordinator Dennis Allen is the favorite to land the job.

“Dennis Allen is well-positioned here. I know that he has a lot of support in the building because the Saints feel like they’ve had a good thing going and Allen has head-coaching experience,” Fowler said. “He’s been there since 2015. Strong coaching staff, strong defense, good players. For continuity’s sake, that could be the case.”

Fowler added that Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and Lions defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn remain strong candidates for the job.

“I know Eric Bieniemy and Aaron Glenn, the Lions defensive coordinator who was with

Tom Brady says his angry outburst at Saints sideline was ‘just football’

Tom Brady shouted an angry message at the New Orleans Saints sideline on Sunday night, near the end of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers‘ 9-0 loss, but the QB insists the incident was “nothing” — even though it looked like the polar opposite of nothing. 

Brady, who got shut out for just the third time in his career, did not have a good game against the Saints. His passes weren’t hitting their targets, he lost his three best pass catchers, and he kept getting knocked around. The Saints’ defense was masterful, keeping the pressure on Brady all night. 

In the fourth quarter, right after he threw an interception to C.J. Gardner-Johnson, his anger bubbled over. Running past the Saints sideline, Brady appeared to yell “go f*** yourself” right in the face of defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen. The analysis from amateur lip readers is far from an official transcript,

As the New Orleans Saints seek a long-term replacement for Drew Brees, one quarterback in the 2021 NFL draft class has reportedly caught their eye. 

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported Saturday on SportsCenter that the Saints “like” Florida’s Kyle Trask. 

The Saints currently have the 28th pick in the first round. It seems unlikely they would be able to move up far enough to select one of the top five quarterbacks in this class, especially if three of them are off the board after the first three picks are made. 

ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. has Trask ranked as the sixth-best quarterback this year, behind Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, Zach Wilson, Mac Jones and Trey Lance. 

In Todd McShay‘s most recent mock draft released Thursday on ESPN.com, the Chicago Bears selected Trask in the second round with the 52nd pick. 

McShay notes that Trask has “great touch and
