Saints keep getting deeper on D-line

By Len Pasquarelli
ESPN.com

Since the end of the 2001 season, the New Orleans Saints have seen three high-quality defensive tackles depart in virtually every manner imaginable. La'Roi Glover exited as an unrestricted free agent in 2002, Norman Hand left via a 2003 draft day trade, and Grady Jackson was handed his walking papers last fall.


In addition, Pro Bowl defensive end Joe Johnson walked away as a free agent two years ago, while serviceable backup tackle Martin Chase was traded last summer.


Three years after the Great Defensive Line Exodus commenced, however, the Saints will go to training camp in a couple weeks with a unit that is arguably superior to the one that started for New Orleans in 2001.


And, just as significant, one that is much deeper.
