Saints sinking fast during hard-luck campaign

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Moving on from a quarterback with the combination of skill, leadership ability and hyper-focused work ethic Drew Brees displayed throughout his record-setting tenure with the New Orleans Saints was never going to be easy.

But succeeding after the departure of a star QB is possible if a team has the financial flexibility under the NFL's salary cap to load up on depth. Or if depth is thin, a little injury luck could keep a team competitive.

But the New Orleans Saints - who've won the NFC South each of the past four seasons - had to go into salary dumping mode this offseason and lost depth. They've also had a rash of injuries to a number of their most prominent and top-paid remaining players.
