Beyond that the Saints have some guys to bring back and adding some young talent at...

The Saints need to create depth at the linebacker position, but that will most likely happen in the draft rather than free agency. From all accounts defensive coordinator Rob Ryan is happy with the production of inside linebackers Curtis Lofton and David Hawthorne, however as you begin to move down the depth chart there doesn’t seem to be much of a plan B behind them.

Panthers WR Steve Smith Tosses Saints LB David Hawthorne Like a Little--You Know

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith has a bit of a reputation.
