Last year, Loomis managed to bring back 14 Saints free agents and add 12 free agents from other NFL teams. In a matter of weeks, Loomis brought back Carl Nicks, Roman Harper, Lance Moore, Jermon Bushrod, Scott Shanle, Zach Strief, David Thomas and Courtney Roby.
Loomis was also able to bring in Darren Sproles, Olin Kreutz, Shaun Rogers, Aubrayo Franklin and Turk McBride from other teams.
Every one of these players have been a factor for New Orleans in the Saints' 2011 season.
The Saints are currently trying to win their second Super Bowl in three years and if they keep playing like they are now, then that is a definite possibility.
However, whenever the time comes that the Saints' season is over, they will have a lot of work to do in the offseason. The Saints have many free agents this year, and it will be difficult to bring all of their key guys back.
Loomis is one of the best in this business and he has proven that over the years, but this offseason will definitely test just how good he is.
The Saints do not have a ton of cap space, and they will have to spend some big money to keep Drew Brees, Marques Colston and Carl Nicks in town. New Orleans will also be trying to bring back key players like Robert Meachem, Tracy Porter, Jo-Lonn Dunbar and Courtney Roby.
Let's take a look at each of the Saints' 2012 free agents, and if they should keep or cut each guy.
