Offseason Forecast: New Orleans Saints

Full Story NFL.Com

What's Changing

The Saints are seeking stability in leadership after a lost season from the bounty scandal fallout. The most important change is the reinstatement of head coach Sean Payton, armed with a five-year contract similar to the one signed by general manager Mickey Loomis. Former Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan will bring his 3-4 scheme to the Big Easy after Steve Spagnuolo was fired for overseeing a defense that allowed the most yards in NFL history.

Biggest Free Agents
LT Jermon Bushrod: Loomis has identified retaining Bushrod as his top challenge this offseason. At age 28, Bushrod will be seeking his last big contract after settling for a reasonable two-year deal in 2011. Loomis could have competition from a team such as the Chicago Bears if Bushrod is allowed to test the market.

DT Sedrick Ellis: It's time for a change of scenery. The No. 7 overall pick in 2008 finished with just 36 tackles and no sacks last season while the Saints ranked dead last against the run. Ellis is a poor scheme fit in Ryan's 3-4 defense.
