New Orleans Saints
When you look at the stats for the New Orleans Saints offense you think WOW they must have some league leading receivers. Not really. Marques Colston was 15th in the league in receiving yards with 1,023 in the regular season for the New Orleans Saints. The next receiver to show up on the list for the New Orleans Saints is Lance Moore at number 38 with 763 yards. This says a lot when the 3rd ranked offense in passing only has 1 receiver in the top 15 and no one else in the top 35. Drew Brees does a great job of spreading the ball around to his receivers.
So that begs the question “Do the New Orleans Saints NEED to do anything about a wide receiver”?
The simple answer is probably not. Lance Moore will be a free agent at the end of the season. Lance has already tried the free agency route. He will test the waters but last time he went through this exercise he ended up right back where he started. Still if the New Orleans Saints lose Moore it is not a huge loss. Robert Meachem and Devery Henderson are under contract and can easily fill Moore’s shoes. This is a fairly deep draft at the wide receiver position so the New Orleans Saints could pick up a mid round project. When you look at the type of wide receiver that works well with the New Orleans Saints it is someone who is not selfish, works hard and is aware that if you run your route correctly you have a good chance to get the ball if you are open.
The New Orleans Saint will likely make an effort to resign Marques Colston to a long term deal prior to the end of the 2012 season. This will lock in their most consistent wide receiver and set the tone for rewarding the type of wide receiver the New Orleans Saints are looking for.
Next we will take a look at the Tight End position for the New Orleans Saints in the 2011 draft and off season picture.

Pop Up Tent
As a new author I have to do what I can to market my books. I have recently started the taking my children’s books and matted prints to various markets for book signings. While some markets are indoors, most of them or not so I decided a must have item for me is a pop up tent. A Pop Up tent works perfectly to provide shade or keep me and my books out of the weather. Can I tell you I love my Pop Up Tent. Ace Canopy also provides canopy tents. This is another perfect solution for me as my son has recently started driving and our garage has no room for his car. So canopy tent here I come.
