Besides the receiver spot last year, the linebacking core for the Saints is probably the worst on the team — and a unit with Demario Davis considered the worst is really saying something.
They weren’t bad necessarily for skill, but they saw a tremendous amount of injuries that led to them having to go to the free-agent market late season.
This offseason, they really didn’t add any talent besides third-round pick from Wisconsin Zack Baun. However, they lost a starting linebacker in A.J. Klein. Alex Anzalone is back from injury, but who knows how durable his future is.
