Luckless Saints marching in wrong direction

(TSX / STATS) -- METAIRIE, La. -- The first pass has yet to be thrown in training camp, but the New Orleans Saints will need to fix several glaring problems on both sides of the line of scrimmage when they hit the practice fields for the first time on July 27.

For a team that stumbled to a 7-9 finish for a third consecutive season and had 17 players on the various reserve lists at season's end, the off-season has been anything but kind to the Saints as they attempted to rebound and get back on track in the NFC South for a run at their first playoff berth since 2013.

The bad news came early and often for the Saints in the first couple of months after coach Sean Payton, the subject of ample speculation concerning his job status a second year in a row, squashed the talk and rolled up his sleeves to prepare for his 11th season with the club.
