Zack Baun saw limited action in his first two seasons, but showed high productivity when he saw the field. He finished with 30 tackles, 22 of which were solo in 2021. He also had one tackle for loss. Baun has been used primarily on the special teams unit, but is a viable option as a flex linebacker following the departure of Kwon Alexander.

ESPN NFL roster rankings for all 32 teams for 2022

  • 647
  • 9
Saints come in at #11 which I feel like is very fair. Most of us believe in Jameis but I know the league wants to see him prove it. Add to that the uncertainty with AK and MT and I can understand #11 with upside to finish much higher. Have to have ESPN insider to see the whole article, but NFC ahead of us are (2)Bucs, (4)Rams, (5)GB, (7)Eagles.


11. New Orleans Saints

Biggest strength: New Orleans' defense ranked second in EPA per play during the 2021 regular season, behind only the Bills. The Saints are running largely the same group back in 2022 outside of safety, where Tyrann Mathieu and Marcus Maye are replacing Marcus Williams and Malcolm Jenkins. Impact players at all three levels should make it one of the stingier defenses in the league again this season, particularly against the run. The only team to allow fewer yards per run play than the Saints since 2019 is Tampa Bay.

Biggest weakness: The Saints locked in their left tackle of the future, Trevor Penning, in the 2022 NFL draft, but there could be some growing pains when it comes to replacing Terron Armstead. Penning was a dominant run blocker in his final season at Northern Iowa in 2021, earning a 99.9 run-blocking grade. However, he'll be making the jump from FCS to NFL competition as a rookie and had trouble with penalties at the college level. Whether it's Penning or James Hurst starting the season on the left side, New Orleans can expect a step back at the position.

X factor for 2022: Michael Thomas set the single-season receptions record with 149 catches in 2019. Since that point, he has played fewer than 500 offensive snaps and caught just 40 regular-season passes in two campaigns. The Saints did a good job of bolstering what profiled as one of the weaker receiving corps in the league entering this offseason with the Chris Olave and Jarvis Landry additions, but they need Thomas to get back to the level he was playing at prior to 2020 in order to really flourish as a unit.

Saints training camp countdown Part 3: The offensive line

METAIRIE – The New Orleans Saints’ success or failure in 2022 likely will hinge on the offensive line as much as any other position group.

The line has a chance to be really good, but it also features one of the biggest questions going into training camp and the preseason: Will the left tackle position be in good hands?

That position will attract as much scrutiny as any other during training camp and the preseason.

The Saints used their second No. 1 draft choice (No. 19 overall) in the draft in April to select Trevor Penning from Northern Iowa to ultimately replace long-time starter...

An unbelievable boatload of talent flooded into the NFL with the 2017 NFL Draft. The New Orleans Saints alone acquired CB Marshon Lattimore, OT Ryan Ramczyk, RB Alvin Kamara, and the since-departed S Marcus Williams, DE Trey Hendrickson, and LB Alex Anzalone. Recent additions like DE Tanoh Kpassagnon, S Marcus Maye, S Justin Evans, G Forrest Lamp, and DE Taco Charlton were also products of the 2017 draft.

Kamara, a relative unknown from Tennessee, was the fifth running back selected when the Saints picked him in the third round. He’d take the league by storm, accounting for 1,901 yards...

Last year’s Saints top draft choice hopes his second season is more productive than his first. Payton Turner will at least start out training camp with a clean bill of health.

The 2021 first rounder announced on social media he is cleared for traiing camp which opens July 26 in Metairie.


Turner played only 143 defensive snaps plus 21 more on special teams last season in five games. The defensive end finished 2021 with 12 tackles and one sack.

The University of Houston product was placed on injured reserve in early November with a shoulder injury that required surgery.

The Saints have gone through a good deal of change in the last couple of years, but neither Drew Brees’ retirement nor Sean Payton’s departure has left defensive end Cam Jordan feeling unsure about the team’s prospects for the 2022 season.

During an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Jordan said that there is already “established trust” with new head coach Dennis Allen because of the time he spent as the team’s defensive coordinator. He also said that winning games while Brees was injured in his last two seasons with the team and going 9-8 with four different quarterbacks last season have...

After a lost rookie season, Payton Turner announced on Twitter that he is finally medically cleared to play and will be ready for training camp. The Saints will essentially get three first-round picks in 2022 with a healthy Payton Turner and Chris Olave and Trevor Penning. A healthy Payton Turner will have high expectations for a break through season in 2022.

Payton Turner was the 28th overall pick for the New Orleans Saints just a year ago and we haven't been able to see a lot of him since. Turner has all of the traits to be a dominant edge rusher at this level, 6’6” and 270 pounds is...

The NFC South division has underwent a massive change on the offensive side over the last two years. As recently as 2019, the division boasted two league MVPs at quarterback in Matt Ryan of Atlanta and Carolina's Cam Newton, a top overall draft choice in Tampa Bay's Jameis Winston, and a Super Bowl MVP and first-ballot Hall of Famer in Drew Brees of New Orleans.

Winston left the Buccaneers in 2020, ironically signing with the Saints to back up Brees. He was replaced by none other than Tom Brady, a five-time Super Bowl MVP and three-time league MVP.

Times have changed. Brees retired after...

The Saints didn’t get much out of their 2021 first-round choice as a rookie as Payton Turner played only 143 defensive snaps and 21 on special teams. The defensive end played only five games and totaled 12 tackles and one sack.

We don't have to guess any further when it comes to Payton Turner and his availability for the Saints going into training camp.

On Wednesday afternoon, Turner revealed via his personal Twitter account that's been cleared and good to go:

Turner, who the team drafted 28th Overall in 2021, showed major glimpses of what he could bring to the table in Week 2's meeting against the Panthers last season, but the potential definitely started in training camp. He'd only appear in just five games for the Saints last season, missing the opener and playing in Weeks 2-5 before being absent for two...

It’s no secret that the New Orleans Saints could use more help at running back. Between the suspension looming for Alvin Kamara and the lackluster showing from last year’s backups, the position has become a popular topic for offseason chatter — especially with trade speculation on everyone’s minds ahead of training camp.

We’ve already heard the argument for a potential Saints trade for the Las Vegas Raiders’ Kenyan Drake. Here’s an alternative from Pro Football Focus’ Doug Kyed, who suggested New Orleans make a move for Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt:

Free-agent tight end Eric Ebron is being recruited by the New Orleans Saints' lead recruiter DE Cam Jordan. The Saints' tight end room is questionable. It's led by Adam Trautman, who hopes to blossom in year three. They also added Taysom Hill back to the room, where he will take on a bigger part of the Y position. The depth of the room comes from veterans Nick Vannett and Juwan Johnson. The Saints have brought in numerous tight end’s for tryouts and have already signed as well as waived a couple too. J.P. Holtz, Brandon Dillon, and Lucas Krull are also names currently on the roster.

The most common criticism of the new helmets had to do with the lack of stripes:

That’s not to say everyone likes the new helmet. The original gold helmet still received a lot of love:
