Two players were selected from both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball with the fifth captain coming from the special teams unit.

Quarterback Drew Brees and tackle Zach Strief were selected as the offensive captains while safeties Roman Harper and Malcolm Jenkinswill represent the defensive unit. Wide receiver and special teams ace Courtney Roby will represent the Special Teams unit for the second consecutive year.

Defensively...absolute surprise! I would think it would be someone who either, does there job consistently, or one of the best defensive players on the team. I don't see how either one of these two fit that criteria.

Re: Saints 2012 Team Captains

Depends on what you want to do with it Mike.... Sometimes those who deserve it get it. Sometimes there are certain players that have more potential than they are living up to and some "ownership" can bring that out in them....

Don't the players vote on team captains? Must have been a lot that went on in camp.

Re: Saints 2012 Team Captains

Weren't Smith and Vilma the defensive captains last season?

Maybe the Saints are trying to make a statement by choosing to drop Smith because of the bounty crap, and hope that Goodell will give them back next year's 2nd rounder by doing this concession.

Re: Saints Elect 2012 Team Captains

Heart, determination and work ethic define all of these men.

Very often, Roby stays on the practice field working on his routes, so he doesn't come to take pics or sign autographs.

My son and I have managed to get four of our five team captains though.

Re: Saints 2012 Team Captains

I was a little surprised with the defensive captains. Greer didn't make it.
