The Saints recently extended the contract of assistant general manager Jeff Ireland, according to source. Ireland, who was hired ahead of the 2015 draft, has played a key role in the recent turnaround of the Saints. His original contract was set to expire after this season. It's not clear when the deal was reached. The deal would not stop teams from reaching out to him about potential general manager openings, but it will ensure he will remain under team control.
