The New Orleans Saints began their offseason training program on Monday, and players were excited to get back to work for the first time this year.

The truth hurts.  After turning in three losing seasons in the past four years, thanks to historically bad performances from the defense, the New Orleans Saints are no longer that feared powerhouse everybody once dreaded to play.

But a solid draft in 2015 and wise money spending in free agency this offseason has potentially set the organization up for the future.  Hitting big in the approaching draft could help the Saints take a tremendous step forward for the upcoming season.

Drew Brees is still under center, so even an average to top-20 defense could get this team back in the playoffs.  There is still a ton of work to do, but some of that work got underway Monday morning as offseason training kicked off.

From defensive standouts Cam Jordan and Delvin Breaux, to roster hopefuls like Jack Tabb and Chris Manhertz, New Orleans Saints players’ are excited to be back at work.
