Saints send well wishes to Jim Kelly

The New Orleans Saints are in the midst of their mandatory minicamp this week, but players took time out to send well wishes to Bills Hall of Fame QB Jim Kelly.

That according to the Times-Picayune in New Orleans as players not only signed their names, but included words of encouragement for the Hall of Fame quarterback as he battles cancer. Here’s a photo taken of the poster that will be on its way to Kelly in Western New York. Photo credit to Michael Hebert.

All I can say is first class Saints. First class.

Bills 3rd rd pick a spot higher

Posted by Chris Brown on March 27, 2012 – 11:12 am

The Bills third-round pick is slotted eighth in round three, but it’s 71st overall instead of 72nd thanks to the New Orleans Saints.

With the Saints forfeiture of their second-round pick this year (59th overall) and next year as part of their bounty-gate punishment, Buffalo’s third-round pick, and every other team’s moves up one overall selection. So even though the order of Buffalo’s pick in the third round remains the same (8th), the overall pick improves by one position (72nd to 71st).

As a result of New Orleans forfeited second-round pick, round two of this year’s draft will only have 31 selections.
