Alvin Kamara, No timeline for league ruling

Per Ross Jackson of USA Today, there's no clear timetable for when Kamara could potentially face NFL discipline stemming from his February arrest following an altercation in Las Vegas.

Analysis: The report suggests that the league will wait for the legal process to wrap up before making any determination. Kamara's next hearing is currently scheduled for early August, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports, though Jackson notes that if the case goes on beyond that juncture, the process could extend into the regular season. There's been speculation that the running back could be facing a six-game suspension from the NFL down the road and in the event that Kamara misses any time, Mark Ingram, Tony Jones, Dwayne Washington, Devine Ozigbo and Abram Smith are currently next up on the Saints' backfield depth chart.

Marquez Callaway, Returns for minicamp

Callaway (thumb) participated in June minicamp, the Saints' official website reports.

Analysis: Callaway had thumb surgery early in the offseason, but there weren't any reports of limitations at spring practices. His bigger concern for this year is a beefed-up WR room that now has Jarvis Landry and first-round pick Chris Olave joining Callaway, Michael Thomas (ankle), Deonte Harty and Tre'Quan Smith. There's still some opportunity for Callaway to earn a top-three spot on the depth chart -- especially if Thomas isn't ready for Week 1 -- but the 24-year-old just easily drop to the No. 4/5 role after starting 11 games last season.

Lil'jordan Humphrey, Joins New England via one-year deal

The Patriots signed Humphrey to a one-year contract Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: There were reports that the wideout would be returning to the Saints, but the undrafted product out of Texas opted to sign with New England instead. In the absence of Michael Thomas (ankle), the 24-year-old complied a career-high 249 receiving yards across 10 games last season, but he faces a crowded wide receiver room with his new squad.

Taysom Hill, Rehabbing during minicamp

Saints head coach Dennis Allen said Hill (foot) is rehabbing at the team facility during minicamp, John Hendrix of reports.

Analysis: Hill was expected to miss 6-to-9 months following January surgery to repair a Lisfranc injury in his left foot, which would put his return timetable close to Week 1. The dynamic playmaker is expected to focus solely on the tight end spot in 2022 after former head coach Sean Payton experimented with him as a dual-threat QB. When healthy, Hill will compete with Adam Trautman, Nick Vannett and Juwan Johnson for snaps.

Michael Thomas, Not participating in minicamp

Thomas (ankle) didn't participate during Tuesday's mandatory minicamp practice, Mike Triplett of reports.

Analysis: The superstar wideout spent half of practice rehabbing in the training facility and the other half watching practice from the sideline while wearing his uniform. Thomas hasn't practiced or played since 2020, so he wasn't expected to participate in minicamp. However, it's still encouraging to see the two-time NFL receptions leader engaged in team activities at this point in the offseason. The Saints have yet to comment on expectations for his Thomas' availability during training camp, but they remain hopeful to have him back at some point during the 2022 campaign.
