Free agent RT Jon Stinchcomb is currently seeing doctors about recovering from a torn quad, according to a Ravens official.

This helps explain why the 2009 Pro Bowler was cut by the Saints on Monday. Recent knee injuries and the lingering effects of this torn quad will keep interest in Stinchcomb muted.

Saints released RT Jon Stinchcomb.

Stinchcomb made the Pro Bowl as recently as 2009, but he couldn't get over the hump with recent knee injuries. The Saints will go young at the position, opening right tackle to competition between Zach Strief and Charles Brown. Brown was the 64th overall pick in 2010 and has a ton of ability. The reliable Strief has been New Orleans' swing tackle for the past two seasons.

Saints RT Jon Stinchcomb is "something short of 100 percent" after January knee surgery.

The procedure was originally labeled arthroscopic, but later clarified as reattaching the quadricep muscle to the knee. That explains the recovery timetable of six months. Stinchcomb still expects to be ready for training camp, though he'll likely be eased in. The Saints have Zach Strief as insurance.

Saints RT Jon Stinchcomb is recovering from surgery that reattached his quadricep muscle to his knee.

A previous report called Stinchcomb's surgery "arthroscopic," but it sounds more serious when muscles are getting reattached to bones. The Saints are holding individual workouts amid the lockout, and Stinchcomb is unable to do much. Despite his decline as a pass blocker in 2010, the Saints didn't draft a single offensive tackle. It appears he'll return as a starter.

Saints RT Jon Stinchcomb "becomes a sloppier mudder each year," according to the New York Times.

The Times says that Stinchcomb seemed to lose his power, which may have been a result of knee issues. Still only 31, Stinchcomb has a chance to rebound in 2011. His ability to do so would be a boost for the Saints' running game, which averaged a pedestrian 4.0 yards per carry last season.

Saints RT Jon Stinchcomb recently underwent arthroscopic knee surgery.

Stinchcomb's pass blocking declined significantly in 2010, perhaps due in part to a balky knee. Signed through 2013, the 31-year-old should be back to 100 percent by training camp.

Saints RT Jon Stinchcomb (sports hernia surgery) returned to full-squad drills at minicamp on Friday.

He's all systems go. Stinchcomb needed just under three weeks to heal from the injury. While sports hernias tend to recur, Stinchcomb's quick recovery coupled with his full medical clearance indicates that it's an issue of the past. He'll return as the Saints' unquestioned starting right tackle.

Saints RT Jon Stinchcomb confirmed that he had surgery Friday to repair a sports hernia.

Stinchcomb also confirmed the 3-4 week rehab timetable, adding that it was a pretty typical surgery. He said he aggravated the injury while working out with a medicine ball, detaching his lower abdominals from the pelvic floor and damaging cartilage. He'll likely skip all of OTAs in an effort to be 100 percent for training camp.

Saints RT Jon Stinchcomb is believed to be undergoing sports hernia surgery Friday after getting injured in the offseason program.

We often hear highly optimistic return timetables for sports hernias (this one says "3 to 4 weeks"), but the lingering effects of such an injury can ruin seasons. The Saints, though, have plenty of depth at tackle to withstand Stinchcomb's absence. Zach Strief will likely step in with the first team.

Saints agreed to terms with RT Jon Stinchcomb on a five-year contract.

Quite a surprise as it was believed the Saints weren't that interested in keeping him. But perhaps they didn't like what they saw on a slim free agent market, choosing Stinchcomb over Jaguars T Khalif Barnes. The Saints now will have all 22 starters back. Stinchcomb is a decent pass blocker, so this is good news for Drew Brees.

Jon Stinchcomb is not expected to re-sign with the Saints.

Though it's not saying much, Stinchcomb will be one of the better tackles on the market. He could draw interest from the Redskins and Seahawks.

Saints T Jon Stinchcomb left Sunday's game in the fourth quarter with a strained right calf.

Zach Strief came on in relief and did a nice job on Falcons sack-master John Abraham.

Saints re-signed T Jon Stinchcomb to a two-year, $7 million contract.

The deal will pay him $5 million in 2007. The formerly injury-prone right tackle held up well last year, his fourth in the league. Still young, the 27-year-old Stinchcomb will have another shot at free agency in 2009. The Saints should now turn their efforts to adding quality cornerbacks.
Sat, Mar 3, 2007 09:54:00 AM

Saints T Jon Stinchcomb is hopeful that he'll get a new contract from the team on Friday.

Stinchcomb could be one of the sleepers in free agency. Injury-plagued early in his career, he was a standout at right tackle last year. The Giants are expected to show interest in Stinchcomb if he doesn't re-sign.
