From the outside, the Saints offense might look like it’s in the middle of a major philosophical shift this offseason.

New Orleans traded away Jimmy Graham and Kenny Stills, added a Pro Bowl center from the league’s best rushing offense, and made its big offensive splash in free agency on a running back, prompting speculation the Saints might be shifting to a more run-oriented attack next season.

Sean Payton bristles a little bit at the suggestion.

“Each year, what we’ve tried to do is take our personnel and apply it the best way we see fit to move the football,” Payton said. “The key will be how we utilize this group of players. I do not envision this drastic change, if you will.”

From the inside, the Saints’ playmakers seem almost as surprised as their coach at the suggestion that New Orleans might alter its approach.

No matter who the Saints might have traded or brought into the fold, the rest of the roster has learned to trust Payton’s system.

“This offense has worked since they got here in 2006,” wide receiver Joe Morgan said. “It doesn’t matter who’s at what position, it’s always going to work.”
