The article presents the views of the author on the football team New Orleans Saints. The team is expected to make a dramatic overhaul, beginning with QB Aaron Brooks. Chances are the team will trade or release him and choose Matt Leinart with the second pick in the draft. The team also will part ways with RE Darren Howard, but he already has been replaced by Will Smith. The only major free agent they need to re-sign is C LeCharles Bentley. With limited funds and concerns about life in New Orleans, the Saints likely will need to make due with the draft and midrange free agents.
