Here is the first of many Saints posts that are going to be written by David Billiot throughout the season. It goes through the entire roster and gives projections for what their roles will be this year and what they'll be looking to accomplish. Check it out, and as always please give feedback on what you like, and what you would like to see more of.

"Football season is back! With the New Orleans Saints first game just a few days away, we’re going to start off by diving into this year’s opening day roster to get you familiar with who you’ll see on the field for this upcoming season.

Before we do that, I’d like to introduce you to our new home for your favorite Saints coverage. Pelicans Report has become a mainstay for great New Orleans Pelicans coverage and discussion, so we are now looking to extend those sources to the football side of New Orleans sports. Not only will we be bringing over the same articles that you were used to with Saints 247, but we are looking to make it bigger and better. As we go through the season, we’re most interested in getting our readers more and more involved. We urge you to join in for discussions and even make suggestions on what you may like to see in the future. We’re looking forward to what will be a great season with you guys and I’d personally like to thank you for being a part of our new journey. If you’re already reading this, you’re in the right place. Sit back and come along for the ride through the 2015 season and beyond!

Alright, now it’s time to get to it. What today’s article is going to consist of is a position by position breakdown of the players that make up the 53 man roster. I’ll introduce you to the new players on the roster, along with brief summaries of each player and what you can expect their role to be throughout the year.

Saints 2015 Offensive Roster


#9 Drew Brees – It’s only fitting that the first name listed is the greatest player to ever don a New Orleans Saints uniform. Brees is entering his 15th season in the NFL (10th with the Saints) and is looking to get back to MVP form.

#7 Luke McCown – McCown returns for his 3rd season in black and gold, serving as the primary backup behind Drew Brees. McCown’s veteran leadership and consistency won his battle for a roster spot against Ryan Griffin, who has since been waived and picked up by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

#18 Garrett Grayson – The Saints spent the 75th overall selection in this past April’s NFL Draft on the rookie QB out of Colorado St, hoping he can develop into the heir apparent to future Hall-of-Famer Drew Brees. Grayson has many of the same skills and traits as Brees, but is still very raw and will look to soak up as much knowledge as possible behind his to veteran teammates.

Running Back

#22 Mark Ingram – New Orleans chose not to pick up Ingram’s fifth year option of his rookie contract prior to the 2014 season, but following Ingram’s breakout season a year ago, the Saints brought him back on a four-year, $16 million contract to be the team’s starting running back in what they hope to be a more consistent, successful running game.

#29 Khiry Robinson..."
