The New Orleans Saints promise to be cash-strapped in the 2013 offseason. Cost-effective moves are imperative for this team to get back to Super Bowl contention, which, of course, is the expectation for everyone in the organization—starting with Tom Benson but ultimately triggered by head coach Sean Payton.
The 2012 Saints finished 7-9, despite an expected win-loss expectancy closer to 8-8. With any luck, the team would have gone 10-6 and likely made the playoffs.
In other words, the team that finished 2012 is a good football team. Having Coach Payton back in two weeks can only help bring consistency and a calming effect to the Saints locker room.
Still, there are some minor moves, following some major restructuring to current team members, that the team can make which should increase the likelihood of regaining the clubs’ winning ways.
Here are the most likely moves that could aid the Saints in 2013.
