Rise And New Orleans Saints: News, Videos And More

8)  New Orleans Saints - The travesty that happened in the playoffs, when Marshawn Lynch made every member of the defense miss twice, is one of the reasons that New Orleans will go after Asomugha

The summer has begun, and the NFL and its locked-out players still lack an agreement to guarantee games will be played in 2011

The Saints have been one of the more active teams when it comes to lockout workouts, and one player generating a lot of talk is tight end David Thomas, the third-round pick of the Patriots in 2006 who was traded before the start of the 2009 season.

Barring the continuation of the stalemate on a new collective bargaining agreement, the Saints first order of business will be to resign the teams restricted and unrestricted free agents currently on the roster, then search the waver wire for other players that might fit in to the their system.

In my previous article, “New Orleans Saints Defense:  Who’s On The Bubble?”, I discussed possible roster cuts coming from either player’s leaving via free agency or being cut altogether.  I’ll do the same with the offense, but with a little more breathing room.
