Saints News, 5/28/15: Saints' Revamped Defense on Display for First Time

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: We won't get to see everything unveiled all at once. But the evolution of the New Orleans Saints defense will be one of the most compelling things to watch over these next four weeks of organized team activities and minicamp. The media will get its first glimpse of the revamped defense on the practice field today. Although the Saints began practicing Tuesday, only one OTA session per week is open to the media.
