METAIRIE – The New Orleans Saints showed last season the value in being less dependent on Drew Brees.
And this year they could be even more dependent on Alvin Kamara.
The Saints went 13-3 last season and missed the Super Bowl by a hair even as Brees passed for fewer than 4,000 yards for the first time in his 13 seasons in New Orleans.
Brees wasn’t less productive; he just wasn’t called on to pass as often. His 489 attempts were his fewest as a Saint, but he broke his own NFL record by completing 74.4 percent of his passes. His touchdown-to-interception ratio of 32-5 was the best of his New Orleans career.
