The New Orleans Saints carry considerable uncertainty into their first training camp since the retirement of record-setting quarterback Drew Brees. Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill will vie to start at QB. And the Saints also must move on without their 2020 sacks leader on the edge, as well as two top interior defensive linemen, a starting cornerback and two top tight ends from last season. The Saints also have numerous returning players who were major contributors to playoff runs in each of the past four seasons. But they may need good fortune with injuries and player development to re-emerge as a postseason threat.
