Saints Roster Littered With Undrafted Players

The culture head coach Sean Payton and GM Mickey Loomis have created is one of hard work, equality, and above all else, opportunity. That's why 47% of the Saints 53 man roster is made up of players that were either undrafted, or 7th round draft picks.

Sean Payton Unsure How He Will Deal With Saints’ Crowded Backfield

For the first time all season, all four of the New Orleans Saints' top four tailbacks are healthy, and that gives head coach Sean Payton a little bit of a problem.

Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles, and Chris Ivory are all healthy and ready to go, but the four backs are one more than Payton would typically like to have.

The New Orleans Saints got back on the win track on Sunday, defeating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 27-16, in an NFC South contest, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, in New Orleans.

Against the Bucs, the Saints' offense rolled, for 458 total yards, including 195 rushing yards, while the defense held Tampa Bay to only 84 rushing yards.
