So far there's been no changes to the Saints' active roster, although that could still change in the days leading up to the Falcons game.

The top two tight ends on the Saints' roster are locks. In fact, the Saints finally have a tandem that could really make this offense operate at the level it did when they had both Shockey and Graham together.
