Okay, here you go guy.

New Orleans Saints

2004 record: 8-8 (second place)
With the return of coach Jim Haslett, major changes in New Orleans are
unlikely. Most of the team\'s high-profile players already have
long-term contracts, and only two of its unrestricted free agents ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬à ¢â‚¬Å“ DE
Darren Howard and SS Jay Bellamy ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬à ¢â‚¬Å“ give cause for concern.

Darren Howard
Howard

Howard is a productive pass rusher when healthy, but durability
concerns make signing him long-term a risk. It\'s unlikely the Saints
would designate Howard their franchise player again, unless they plan
to trade him later. Bellamy led the team in tackles last season and is
a serviceable strong safety, but the Saints won\'t go overboard to
re-sign him. None of their other unrestricted free agents are
considered \"must\" signs.

SS Mel Mitchell, OLT James Allen and MLB Roger Knight all are
restricted free agents who likely will be tendered, but not at the
high level.

The Saints have around $8 million of cap room, but they usually don\'t
make a big splash in free agency. Given that they like their current
roster and believe they are close to being a playoff team, they figure
to concentrate on mid-level and role players to fill roster spots and
add depth.

The team\'s offseason acquisition efforts will focus on defense, where
impact players at cornerback, safety, linebacker and defensive tackle
are needed. But the team could be put up for sale soon, and that often
leads to penny pinching.

Yup. Although, is there ANY Louisiana person or group that could afford it? Anyone on the gulf coast?
