By my very nature I am a cynic, a pessimist, I look for things that don't work rather than those that do. That is the approach I take to the NFL, because each year I find myself noticing that it is the team with the fewest holes that goes home with the Super Bowl ring.
Now that free agency has essentially culminated, the New Orleans Saints have established themselves as that team.
The Saints haven't added any marquee players, but they have brought in some to fix their soft spots. Considering this is a team only a matter of 16 months or so away from a Super Bowl and seven from a playoff appearance, there weren't many to fix.
The winner of free agency isn't the team that signs the best players. The winner of free agency is the team that does the most to set themselves up to win a Super Bowl. Right now, that is the New Orleans Saints.

"Robinson hasn't been impressive to this point in his career but should improve in his second season....."

To whoever wrote the article, read the bit in bold text.

All corners struggle in their first season, they get beat straight away, give robinson a break, he's in his second season and the word from camp is hes been playing real well since sitting in Tracy Porters starting spot

It's the Bleacher Report so hopefully nobody takes it seriously, but it's all true!

Well almost all of it...

However, Rodgers is as talented as most defensive linemen in the league. What he lacks is motivation after being part of a Browns organization for the last few years who were permeated by a losing attitude.

I would think that it is completely the opposite for him, because now he is on a winning team with a great general attitude towards the game.

And when we drafted him nearly everyone agreed he was a bit raw. I think most people knew he'd blossom in his 2nd or even 3rd year in the league.

Williams will get him there mentally, I have no doubt.
