Saints News, 3/24/16: Saints' Defensive Philosophy in Question With Recent Signings

New, comments

Throughout most of 2015 it was unclear if the Saints were a 3-4 or a 4-3, however in light of their recent signings and comments by Sean Payton they seem to be favoring the former. Payton expects to see Hau'oli Kikaha lining up as an edge rusher far more frequently in 2016, and the Saints may mold their defense around this idea.
