|The Saints were bad on defense last year. Really, really bad. And in an effort to fix that leaky defense big changes are afoot. The team brought in veteran middle linebacker James Laurinaitis to run a new 4-3 front. Drafted Louisville defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins in Round 1. New DC Larry Allen was realistic about his unit while speaking with the New Orleans Times-Picayune. 'We're starting from ground zero,' Allen said.
