Monday Saints notes

  • The Saints received no compensatory picks in the 2010 draft, announced on Monday.

    The picks, awarded via a fantastically complicated formula in the league office, gives non-tradable picks at the end of round 3-7 to teams that lost players via free agency.

  • When the league announces prime time games this week, we should see the Saints hosting the Vikings on opening night of the regular season. It's an honor the champions from the prior seasons get.

  • The 2011 Spring owner's meetings will be held in New Orleans. That's a lot of big spenders coming to town, and they'll be talking about some pretty heavy subjects.

  • Former West Virginia and Tennessee Titan cornerback Adam "Pac Man" Jones worked out in Hahnville on Friday. Jones is a native of Atlanta, Georgia.

    Despite the locality, the Saints were not among the five pro teams represented.

  • Veteran free agent defensive end James Hall was the first free agent visit of the Saints. A New Orleans native, Hall has re-signed with his 2009 team, the St. Louis Rams.
