Saints | Defense Basically the Same

Mike Triplett, of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, reports the New Orleans Saints will have 10 returning starters on defense this season from a unit that finished last overall in the league a year ago. "I'm excited about the fact that we're going with a team that has played together, for my first time here, period," said Rick Venturi, who is entering his 10th season with the Saints and fourth as the team's defensive coordinator. "There's going to be continuity, which should help us early. That's been a problem here. We haven't had continuity. We've had a lot of mass changes, and that makes it hard to be good right off the bat."
