Only the Kansas City Chiefs (6) have actually made more consecutive playoff looks currently than the New Orleans Saints. Sean Paytons club his caught the NFC South four consecutive years. Regardless of a combined 49-15 win-loss record over that period, the team from the Big Easy failed to reach the Super Bowl on each of those occasions.
This previous season, the club ended up 12-4 and that included a regular-season sweep of the ultimate Super Bowl champ Tampa Bay Buccaneers– the team that sent out Paytons club home in the divisional playoffs. While Drew Brees has retired and the group lost some crucial performers in complimentary agency, the cabinet is far from bare.
The Saints wound up drafting a half-dozen gamers when it was all said and done last week. Which three could be surprise contributors?

The 6-foot-1, 198-pound product from Stanford chose out of 2020 however put together rather the resume before sitting out this past season. In two seasons from 2019, he played in a combined 22 contests and tore down a remarkable 27 passes. Adebo also recorded 4 interceptions in each of those two seasons.
When it comes to aerial yardage permitted (5th in the NFL) this previous season, dont be deceived by the groups last ranking. The Saints pass defense started unsteady a year back, gradually improved and then plunged down the stretch and the young defender is a welcome addition.
It is transition time in the Crescent City as the defending NFC South champions will no longer have the NFLs all-time passing leader on their lineup.
