Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

That's exactly how I think it'll look JP. Agreed 100%. Everything looks solid but that Leo position still looks like the weak link. I love Kikaha and Edebali but I'm not in love with relying on them.

Payton seems to have mad man crush for Seattle's defense...

They'll probably rotate Richardson, Onyemata opposite Cam in the base and bring Kikaha/Edebali in on the edges on passing downs, maybe both with Cam sliding inside with Rankins/Fairley...

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

Interesting...Landon Collins with No. 78; same as DE Bobby Richardson last year who looks now to be wearing No. 98...
