For the second straight season, the New Orleans Saints’ year ended in bitter disappointment with the club staring at another losing record.

After so much promise and believe that the club would ‘turn the corner’ after a rare 7-9 losing season, the Saints battled a great deal of adversity in 2015. Unfortunately, we all know the results replicated themself. Key players disappointed in one way or another with poor play or injuries, and the heavy dependence on the younger players didn’t exactly pan out.

It’s a brand new season, and that means some more than others carry a big chip on their shoulder with a lot to prove in 2016. We look at the five biggest New Orleans Saints who must deliver this year.
