This season was a bittersweet one for New Orleans Saints fans. Despite dealing with injuries to both Drew Brees and Michael Thomas, they finished as the No. 2 seed in the NFC. They were knocked out of the playoffs at the hands of a division rival though, and now they have to watch the Tampa Bay Buccaneers play in Super Bowl LV.
Saints Super Bowl Odds
This offseason is expected to bring some unique challenges for the Saints. Franchise QB Drew Brees may be retiring, and their salary cap situation is a mess.
This team went 3-1 with Taysom Hill as their starting QB in 2020, however, and the offense still boasts two of the NFL's best skill-position players in Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas.
The defense was also quietly one of the best in the league in 2020, ranking No. 4 in Pro Football Focus' rating and No. 2 in Football Outsiders' defensive DVOA metric.
There could be some turnover as the Saints look to get their salary cap situation in check, but this is still a team with one of the strongest cores in the league, as well as a terrific head coach.
Saints fans have to feel pretty good about still being considered one of the early favorites for Super Bowl LVI despite the uncertainty they're facing in the offseason.
