NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (12-6)OPEN CAMP: July 26 , Ochsner Sports Performance Center, Metairie, LouisianaLAST YEAR: Helped by infusion of elite young talent, Saints pulled out of three-year rut of mediocrity and won NFC South. They were seconds away from advancing to NFC title game, only to be thwarted by Minnesota receiver Stefon Diggs‘ winning touchdown as time expired in divisional round. New Orleans received major contributions from running back and Offensive Rookie of Year Alvin Kamara, and cornerback and Defensive Rookie of Year Marshon Lattimore. Several other first-and second-year players filled regular roles as well, and veteran Drew Brees remained one of NFL’s top QBs.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: LB Demario Davis Greedy Williams Jersey , S Kurt Coleman, CB Patrick Robinson, WR Cameron Meredith, Rookie DE Marcus Davenport.IMPORTANT LOSSES: S Kenny Vaccaro, TE Coby Fleener, WR Willie Snead, G Senio Kelemete , RT Zach Strief, CB Delvin Breaux.CAMP NEEDS: Lineup is relatively stable from last-season’s playoff run, but New Orleans looking to bolster pass rush by finding someone who can make offenses pay for sending multiple blockers at All-Pro end Cameron Jordan. Saints want Davenport to develop into that player. But he is raw in first season out of UTSA. Saints also want to figure out which running backs can fill in for Mark Ingram during his four-game suspension to open season. Veteran free agents Shane Vereen and Terrence West, along with draft pick Boston Scott and second-year pro Trey Edmunds, are competing for those snaps.EXPECTATIONS: Saints appear to have gotten stronger and deeper than last season, particularly with additions on defense. Keys to improving are how well new players fit and, as usual Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , avoiding injuries. If Davenport develops quickly, Saints could be elite. If not, teams with good plan to block Jordan could give New Orleans fits.—AP NFL website: and Matt LaFleur oversaw the first week of his first offseason program as head coach of the Packers last week and a lot of the attention in Green Bay was on the final days of his predecessor’s tenure.An article by Tyler Dunne of reported on a variety of things that went wrong in recent years, including issues between quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy that might give some people pause about stepping into McCarthy’s shoes. LaFleur didn’t hesitate to take the job in January and he said that he’s worried about how things play out in the future rather than what went down in the past.“Honestly, I haven’t put a whole lot of thought into that,” LaFleur said, via Albert Breer of “I wasn’t here , so I don’t know what happened. And quite frankly, I don’t really care what happened. All I care about is how we move forward as a football team. All I care about is the partnership that we’re forming, how that goes, and our communication. That’s all I really care about.”LaFleur may not be obsessing over the past, but he knows his relationship with Rodgers is “critical.” He said that he enjoyed every second of their first week working together and the hope in Green Bay will be that things continue to flower in a way that avoids any need for another article about how things inside the building went sour.
