John Clayton takes an early look at 32 teams

New Orleans Saints Cap room: $21.9 million The Saints are among the league leaders with 16 free agents. The biggest decision involves defensive end Charles Grant. Now that the Saints are a Super Bowl contender, Grant is too good to let slip away. The Saints have to franchise him or re-sign him. The rest of the list isn't too bad. They could lose guard Montrae Holland, but head coach Sean Payton did a great job of retooling the offensive line last season, getting younger and better. They need to re-sign defensive tackle Hollis Thomas, who was valuable stopping the run. Age or injuries could put wide receiver Joe Horn or tight end Ernie Conwell on the bubble of being cut, but the Saints don't want to do too much to destroy the karma on this team. Their surplus of cap room means they don't have to release anyone. Fred Thomas struggled at cornerback, so they may need to look at upgrading that position. Defense will be the focal point for the Saints during the offseason. They patched the linebacking corps with transitional veterans. They could use more help at defensive tackle. Still, the Saints are loaded on offense and should have mostly everyone back. They probably need to acquire a pass-catching tight end, but they did well without one. The Saints' schedule features nine games against teams that had .500 records or better in 2006.
