Beyond Jameis Winston, beyond Taysom Hill, beyond the top-end talent, the New Orleans Saints' success is largely going to be defined by the middle class of the roster.
One of the things that we often talked about the last few years was how the team could overcome any injury, regardless of who went down. There were no secrets behind why that was possible. New Orleans had one of the deepest rosters in the league.
That probably isn't going to be the case next season. New Orleans has lost a lot of depth the last few weeks and will probably see more leave in the future as players who are not currently under contract find new situations.
