6/12  – Saints lose LB Victor Butler for season with torn ACL

You never like to see players go down in the offseason, especially OTAs. Butler’s loss was quite unfortunate, as he had so much promise to bring in with Rob Ryan. He will be missed, however, it will make way for Martez Wilson to step up in the SAM role, and definitely justifies a huge reason of why hanging on to Will Smith was smart.

6/13 – Saints sign CB Chris Carr to one year contract

It was once reported that Carr was contemplating retirement, but at 30, he still has something to prove. He spent the past season with the Chargers, where he primarily lined up as a slot corner & special teamer. He’s been with several ball clubs since entering the league in 2005 (Oakland, Tennessee, Baltimore, San Diego).
