Five Biggest Questions Going Into Saints' Training Camp | thesaintsnation.com
Juge - (HansDat note: Andrew, I can guarantee you we'll see "marketed improvement" by the defense in 2013. Hell, Payton, Ryan, and the team will be spinning and selling the idea of improvement each and every week to try and convince everyone things are better!!)

NFP Sunday Blitz | National Football Post
Len Pasquarelli’s debut at the National Football Post - Victor Butler has never had more than three sacks in a season, but the linebacker, signed by New Orleans as a free agent, was critical to the Saints as new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan moves the unit to a 3-4 in 2013. But with Butler suffering an ACL injury that will sideline him the entire season, Ryan and the Saints are scrambling for a rush linebacker. Former end Will Smith probably isn’t athletic enough, which could catapult the relatively inexperienced Junior Galette into a prominent role. Galette has 9 ½ sacks in three seasons as a backup, including five last year, and he arguably best fits the profile Ryan is seeking.
