Team needs: New Orleans Saints | ProFootballTalk
not a great read, but still always interesting to get an outsider's point of view. Florio should really stick to the legal stuff though. This evaluation is almost as bad as his mock drafts. Not much research and effort was put into this. But that's ok, let us fly under the radar. We like it that way.The Saints can’t possibly fix all their defensive issues in a single offseason, even if they had all their picks, which they don’t. They made a quick run at cornerback Keenan Lewis and signed defensive end Kenyon Coleman, but need more help there as well. They also need to find a young quarterback, as backup Chase Daniel split for Kansas City.
Having Brees reunited with back-from-Elba coach Sean Payton gives them a little flexibility there, as the expected offensive uptick will limit the need for Ryan to turn the defense into the 1985 Bears. But the Saints made history last year with their porosity, and now they’re changing the scheme to one that’s an odd fit for the existing personnel.
