  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Logs career highs in 2023

    Granderson finished the 2023 regular season with a career-high 78 tackles and a career-high 8.5 sacks across 17 games.

    Granderson showed promise as an edge rusher over the first four seasons of his career, totaling 14.5 sacks while playing a rotational role across 54 appearances. New Orleans locked in the 2019 undrafted free agent with a four-year, $52 million contract in September. In return, he rewarded the Saints with a team high in sacks as well as the team's third-most tackles behind inside linebackers Pete Werner and Demario Davis. With 34-year-old defensive end and franchise stalwart Cameron Jordan's production and availability slipping over each of the past three seasons, Granderson appears poised to play a vital role at pass rusher once again in 2024.

  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Will suit up at Rams

    Granderson (shoulder) does not carry an injury designation into Thursday's game at the Rams, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

    The Saints did not practice Monday, and Granderson was estimated to be limited at Tuesday's walk-through practice, but he was listed as a full participant for Wednesday's walk-through, removing any doubt that he'll play in Week 16. He'll resume his role as the Saints' top pass rusher Thursday.

  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Starts week limited

    Granderson (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on Monday's practice estimate, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

    Granderson's participation level was just an estimate with the Saints on a short week, as they play Thursday against the Rams and didn't hold an actual practice Monday. His status for practice Tuesday and Wednesday should give better insight into his chances of playing Week 16.

    Granderson's 10 stops led New Orleans and marked his first double-digit tackle performance of the campaign.

  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Logs sack versus Colts

    Granderson registered six tackles (three solo), including a sack, during the Saints' 38-27 win versus Indianapolis on Sunday.

    Granderson was only one of two New Orleans defenders to sack Gardner Minshew, and he now has 5.5 sacks through eight games. The 26-year-old should have an ample opportunity to increase those numbers next week versus the Bears, whose offensive line has struggled so far this season.

Through the first six games of the season, Granderson is easily having his most productive year ever, recording 23 tackles, seven tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks (which leads the team).

  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Inks extension

    The Saints agreed to a four-year extension with Granderson on Saturday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Granderson has already registered 2.5 sacks in two games this season and is well on his way to shattering his career-high 5.5 sacks registered last season. He joined the Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2019 and has steadily seen more snaps on defense since then. Granderson will continue to be a force for the Saints' defensive front alongside Cameron Jordan, Nathan Shepherd and Khalen Saunders.

  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Big day in Week 1

    Granderson recorded four tackles, including 1.5 sacks, in Sunday's 16-15 win versus Tennessee.

    In a Week 1 game that quickly turned into a defensive slugfest, Granderson emerged as one of the game's most valuable players Sunday, creating pressures even on the plays where he wasn't taking down Ryan Tannehill behind the line of scrimmage. He'll look to build on his impressive 2023 debut at Carolina on Monday, where he'll line up across from Ikem Ekwonu.
