Predicting the New Orleans Saints' Starting Lineup Post Week 1 of Free Agency

The New Orleans Saints have been remarkably quiet in the first week-and-a-half of NFL free agency, aside from restructuring their own players' deals and adding two newcomers—Keenan Lewis and Benjamin Watson. 

The result is stability on a roster that needed less an infusion of talent and more cohesion in the locker room, which it will gain with the reinstatement of head coach Sean Payton. 

As such, the 2013 Saints' starting lineup doesn't figure to look tremendously different from that of 2012. The change to a 3-4 scheme opens a spot for a rotational player from 2012, but at this time, it is that spot which remains open and is the biggest question mark on the depth chart.

Left tackle is a spot that seemed to be vacant, but Charles Brown has been confirmed as the presumed starter. But as Mickey Loomis said on Kristian Garic's show on Tuesday night, "It is highly likely to bring in competition at left tackle with Charles Brown." 

In other words, two or three spots are still open on the starting depth chart. Here is how it looks after a week-and-a-half of free agency.
