The Saints are headed out for the summer.

DEPTH STANDS OUT: The Saints finished 11-5 last season and didn’t face an injury they couldn’t overcome. So saying this team is deep isn’t exactly breaking new ground, but the depth seemed to stand out even more this summer.

Are there any legitimate battles for significant playing time? Vonn Bell and Kurt Coleman could compete at strong safety, and Cam Meredith, Ted Ginn Jr. and Tre’quan Smith might fight for playing time at wide receiver. In most instances, it looks like the starters are locked in.

That’s a lot different than a couple of years ago, when undrafted players were not only competing for roster spots but also starting positions. Bobby Richardson started 11 games at defensive end for New Orleans in 2015 and has not appeared in a game since. It would be an understatement to say much has changed, because most of the battles will be further down the roster.
