Saints G.M. on Drew Brees: He’s going to be a New Orleans Saint

Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis didn’t want to get into any of the particulars of the negotiations with Drew Brees.

But like everyone else involved in the process, he’s confident a deal will be reached before his quarterback becomes an unrestricted free agent.

Pat Shurmur  got an up close and personal look at Sam Darnold during USC’s Pro Day on Wednesday, after the Giants  met with the top quarterback prospect prior to his workout.

According to report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter , Darnold had dinner with the Giants on Monday and the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday.

However, the Giants might not get a chance at Darnold, as the Cleveland Browns own the No. 1 overall pick and could invest it in the Southern Cal. product and met with him as well.

It was awesome, Darnold said during an appearance on NFL Network of his meetings with the Browns, Giants, and Jets , who are the owners of the top-three picks in next month’s NFL Draft. Just being the best version of myself is what I strive for. I think I did a nice job of that today, and these past few days when I’ve been meeting with teams.

The one thing scouts need to learn about Darnold they won’t learn by him throwing against air.

He had 22 interceptions and 21 fumbles in 27 starts at USC.

In regards to turning the ball over, the No. 1 priority of a quarterback is to protect the football, Darnold said. I’m aware of that, and I’m aware how much I turn the ball over and that it’s not OK. I’ve been addressing it this offseason. I’ve been working on keeping two hands [on the ball] in the pocket at all times. The only time I let go of the ball is to throw it. That’s something I’ve really been working on. And also keeping it tight whenever I tuck it and run.Report: Handful of teams see Teddy Bridgewater as potential starter

The NFL hasn’t made anything official yet, but signs continue to point to quarterback Teddy Bridgewater becoming an unrestricted free agent on March 14 rather than having his contract with the Vikings toll for another season.

Shattenkirk’s second main reason for selecting the Rangers?

Individually, it’s who can I play with that’s going to make me the best player? said Shattenkirk. I think I have the opportunity to play here with Ryan McDonagh, who is an All Star defenseman and a great fit for me. I think we’ve played together since 17 or 18 years old, we’ve had a few experiences (with Team USA). I really couldn’t find a better situation than here.

McDonagh, the Rangers’ captain, and Shattenkirk were teammates for several major tournaments including the 2014 Winter Olympics, 2009 World Junior Championships and 2007 World Under 18 championships.

Of course, the exclamation point on Shattenkirk’s decision is the chance to play for the team he has always loved.

I didn’t realize until after I signed just how many Rangers fans there are, stated Shattenkirk. I am really excited to be a part of this.

Ottawa had an answer for both.

Mark Stone’s second-period marker came 20 seconds after Kunitz broke the ice. Then it was Ryan Dzingel, without a goal in nearly a month, who scored with 5:19 to play.

In overtime, where the Sens made a living with a 6-1 record these playoffs, Craig Anderson was as stellar as he’s been during their run. The veteran netminder twice turned aside prime chances from Phil Kessel, the first on a breakaway and the second clanking off the post and just over the crossbar.

Kunitz, whose last goal came Feb. 16, 35 games ago, got the game winner on a slap shot from the top of the faceoff circle that made it past two Sens defenders and over the right shoulder of Anderson, who stopped 39 of Pittsburgh’s 42 shots on goal.
