MOBILE, LA (WVUE) - It's a unit that has three unrestricted free agents and at times underperformed in 2013 so you can say the Saints are in the market for some help along the offensive line this offseason.
It's an area Saints general manager Mickey Loomis was eyeing at the Senior Bowl Tuesday "we're always looking for young offensive linemen, looking for depth. We feel really good about where Terron Armstead is and how he did in the latter part of the season when he get a chance to play. We've got another young player in Tim Lelito who we are excited about. Look, we've got good players on the offensive line with Ben Grubbs, Jahri Evans, Brian de la Puente, and Zach Strief. We've got a really good coach, Brett Ingalls, at that position, who does a great job developing guys and we've had a willingness to take and develop younger players in that offensive line so I don't see that changing."
While the Saints offensive line did improve, Brees was sacked a career-high 37 times.
