This evening, the Saints announced their depth chart entering the preseason. In the first offseason under GM John Stanley, the team has seen a lot of change. 12 of the 22 combined starters on offense and defense will be new team to the team or new to starting in 2022. There will be 5 rookie starters in total, which is a high number, and 4 of those will be on defense which is potentially scary if they don't preform to their expected level. 4 new starters were acquired via trade, 1 via free agency, and 2 backups from last year will assume starting roles. Overall, it is a huge shake up in New Orleans. Stanley inherited a talented roster, but definitely worked to put his own touch on it. The turnover will likely continue in the years to come, and it will be interesting to see if it translates to any more success on the field.
