The New Orleans Saints open up their preseason tonight at home against the San Francisco 49ers. While many fans will focus on some of the "big name" newcomes like Darren Sproles and Shaun Rogers, the defensive coaching staff will be busy keeping tabs on several position battles.
Darren Sproles is viewed by many Saints fans as Reggie Bush's replacement. However, Sproles could bring some of the same elements Bush brought to the offense, and more. In essense, he is the key to the Saints revamped running game.
NFL free agents may have numerous reasons for wanting to sign with a certain team. Money, playing time, the system, and playing in a desirable city are all things that might factor into a players' decision.
To build a successful NFL franchise, teams have to make a big splash in free agency, every now and then, but it's those signing that aren't really the attention grabbers that can make a team really special.
The Saints wasted no time finding Reggie Bush's replacement, agreeing to terms last night with free agent running back Darren Sproles. The 4 year deal is reportedly worth $14 million, with $4 million guaranteed.
