Saints News, 6/12/15: Payton Says No Major Shift in Saints' Offensive Approach

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: Payton dismissed the idea of any “drastic change” or “major shift” in store for New Orleans’ offense this year, despite the fact that it traded away top pass-catchers Jimmy Graham and Kenny Stills while investing in center Max Unger and running backs Mark Ingram and C.J. Spiller.
