Grueling Truth

● By Samuel Teets
The New Orleans Saints bid farewell to legendary quarterback Drew Brees this offseason. Sean Payton’s team enters its post-Brees stage without a defined course. New Orleans sold out for a Super Bowl over the past several years and came up empty-handed. It’s time to deal with the consequences and begin picking up the pieces as a new era dawns in New Orleans. The Saints don’t have an easy path back to the postseason in 2021. Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston could split time at quarterback, and the roster is still hurting from several costly cuts because of salary cap restrictions. Payton must replace expensive veteran talent with promising rookie labor if his team wants a shot at making the playoffs.
