The New Orleans Saints will enter training camp in 2013 with an unfamiliar sense of calm.
While the team is deep into a transition to the 3-4 defense under Rob Ryan, there's no longer the dark cloud of Bountygate hovering over the entire franchise. The aftershocks of last season's scandal rattled the franchise to its very core.

In the following slides, we'll highlight the rest of the major themes and storylines of the Saints 2013 training camp. Topics include schedules, roster breakdowns and positional battles.
