By James Varney, The Times-Picayune

SEATTLE - Injuries aside, the New Orleans Saints' roster is liable to look much different in 2011. The exact nature of the upcoming free agency market remains unknown because the NFL's collective bargaining agreement with the players' union will end the first week of March.

But by the rules that existed under the old arrangement, the Saints would have a whopping 28 players as unrestricted free agents. Those with six or more years in the league are running backs Ladell Betts and Julius Jones, fullback Heath Evans, center Jonathan Goodwin, safeties Darren Sharper, Pierson Prioleau and Matt Giordano, linebacker Scott Shanle, Kawika Mitchell and Danny Clark; defensive linemen Anthony Hargrove and Jimmy Wilkerson and long snapper Jason Kyle.

We'll have a much different team next year for sure. It sure was nice during the ride though.

Agreed. I see one must name in Kyle, three hopeful names in Evans, Hargrove and Goodwin. Other than that, no big deal.

Loomis likes the short term deals and puts a lot of FAs on a one year contract. I think the roster is going to be changed by at least 25%.

Jonathan Goodwin
Anthony Hargrove
Roman Harper
Lance Moore
David Thomas
Jermon Bushrod
Remi Ayodele

The rest are basically journeymen and easily replacable

Don't forget, because of the CBA expiration, EVERY team has a bunch more free agents than they normally do.

I do not believe next year's team will be all that different.

The following are must keeps:
Carl Nicks
Chris Reis (total HERO of Super bowl 44)
Lance Moore
Courtney Roby (sorely missed in the playoff game)
Pierre Thomas
Jeff Charleston
Jason Kyle
Jonathan Goodwin

Would like to have back:
Darren Sharper (want to see if he has a big rebound year)
Jermon Bushrod
Danny Clark
Tony Hargrove
Jo Lonn Dunbar
Pierson Prioleau
David Thomas
Zach Strief
Leigh Torrence (he intercepted Pig Pen ha ha ha)
Garrett Hartley
Remi Ayodele
Marvin Mitchell

Not sure about some of the others and way too mad at Roman Harper right now to even think about him.
