We’ve hit the part of the offseason where little is happening. OTAs are done with. Mini-camps too. Players are getting their last little R&R before the grind of training camp and the regular season. Coaches, believe it or not, will also take a couple weeks off very soon.
In other words, even in a busy, seemingly never-ending offseason for the New Orleans Saints, there should not be much to report on, much to talk about or even speculate upon. Yes, there is still much ado about nothing in the bountygate scandal. And there’s still that contract for that one guy (what’s his name?) that needs to get done.
Aside from those two stories, though, the middle of the summer is a time to get reacquainted with some of the old faces and formally introduced to the new faces. Today, we will take a look at the newest Saints and try to figure out just exactly what role they will play in the 2012 drama known as the New Orleans Saints’ football season.
