Guess there's more open spots than they realize. I think our depth will get better. Our defense needs to get more dominating as well.

I think the team will have between 10 and 14 players who were not on the 53-man roster in 2009. Loomis has already said a 20-25% turnover of personnel is about right for a team that went deep into the playoffs, or won the Super Bowl (as the Saints did).

We still seem weak at DL and LBer. I had hoped we'd shore that up before camp. I think 10-12 new players would be the most we sign this year because of last years injured players coming back.

We signed vets to fill the D line; Wilkerson & Brown. Too many LB's and WR's on the roster - cuts will come.
