Saints agreed in principle on a five-year contract with head coach Sean Payton.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the extension is similar to the one signed by Payton and the Saints in September of 2011. That extension was good through 2015, although it was later voided due to Payton's bounty suspension. The new deal is good through 2017 and will become official once Sean Payton's suspension formally ends after Super Bowl XLVII. Payton has a 62-34 record in six seasons as Saints head coach, including a Super Bowl victory. The new deal ensures that Payton will not flirt with the Dallas Cowboys, who were believed to have at least some interest in him if they missed the playoffs under Jason Garrett. Payton's extension in New Orleans is good news for Saints skill-position players. He's perhaps the premier offensive schemer and game-day playcaller in all the NFL.

Leonard Fournette (quad) did not practice Thursday.

Dec 14 - 12:14 PM

Giants placed RT Justin Pugh (back) on injured reserve.

Pugh went for a second opinion this week which obviously recommended him shutting things down for the rest of the season. The good news is he will not need surgery, a welcome development as he heads into free agency. As long as he is healthy, Pugh should have a hot market as a quality and versatile lineman.

Interim GM Kevin Abrams said he would like to see Davis Webb get some playing time.

Dec 14 - 12:08 PM

Tyrod Taylor (knee) is practicing Thursday.

It is not a surprise after he got in a full session Wednesday. Barring any setbacks, he will be ready to face the Dolphins. He will be a solid QB2 in that matchup.

Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is practicing Thursday.

Benjamin was limited on Wednesday and likely will be again today, but he still looks on track to play against the Dolphins. If he does, he will be an upside WR4.
Dec 14 - 11:39 AM

Matt Forte (knee) returned to practice Thursday.

As has become his routine, Forte sat out Wednesday's practice. He will almost certainly play against the Saints, but this is an offense to avoid with Bryce Petty under center.
Dec 14 - 11:34 AM

Joe Mixon (concussion) returned to practice Thursday.

This practice does not guarantee Mixon will return this week, but it is a positive step after he was held out of Wednesday's session. We should know more about his status on Friday. If he plays, Mixon will be an RB3/FLEX option against the Vikings.
Dec 14 - 11:25 AM

Saints coach Sean Payton said he expects Alvin Kamara (concussion) to play Week 15 against the Jets.

Kamara expects the same after getting in a full practice Wednesday, saying he is "good to go." The Saints have ridden the running game hard during their wins this season, and they are 16-point home favorites over the Jets. That means both Kamara and Mark Ingram should get more than their fair share of touches. Both are top-five fantasy options.

Speaking on ESPN's SC6, Robert Griffin III said he has not "given up on" finding a team this season.

"I love football. I miss the game," Griffin said. "There are some teams that need help and may need help going into the playoffs." The former No. 2 overall pick added he had offers from the Cardinals and Ravens in the offseason, but he turned them down because they were not the "right fit." It seems unlikely he gets a shot before the end of the season, but it sounds like he will be actively seeking a job in the spring.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said Christian Hackenberg will not play this season unless Bryce Petty suffers an injury.

The aftermath of Josh McCown's season-ending injury would seem like the perfect time to get a second-round sophomore who has yet to play a single snap in the regular season some work, but the coach sees it differently. "We got people at every position that want to play," Bowles said. "We’re not jumping people over people just to play considering anything. Bryce is our starter." With the Saints, Chargers, and Patriots left on the schedule, Petty is going to struggle, opening up the possibility if not likelihood Hackenberg gets a shot over the next three games. Still, not playing him now says everything about his future.

Updating an earlier report, Tyrod Taylor (knee) is practicing in full for Week 15 against the Dolphins.

He'll be back under center after sitting out Sunday's game with a bruised patellar tendon. Taylor's fantasy results have been all over the map this year but his scrambling ability (he ranks third among quarterbacks with 334 rushing yards) keeps him in the streaming conversation this week.
