SAINTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Ranking the NFC South Positional Groups: Cornerbacks

#1 New Orleans After a disastrous year for the secondary, the Saints set out to make sure not to repeat the mistake of overestimating the quality of depth at the position.

Aftermath of Junior Galette release and what it means for 2015 Saints prospects

When the Saints drafted Hau’oli Kikaha in the 2nd round and Davis Tull in the 5th round it was for an eye for the future to give their pass rushing a boost.
