San Diego Chargers +700 Odds To Win Super Bowl | Sign S Schulters

August 20, 2008 - The NFL New Orleans Saints have signed S Lance Schulters to a one year deal. The former all-pro SS from Arizona was invited to camp to try out for a spot on the roster. The NO Saints are looking to upgrade a defense that was made of swiss cheese last year leading to many high scoring games. The New Orleans Saints defense has looked good in their first two preseason games against 2nd string offensive units. The Saints defense will never be confused with the Ray Lewis led Baltimore Ravens Dmen but the Saints D is definitely a sleeper this year for fantasy players and more importantly online bettors.

The New Orleans Saints offense will look more like the incredible hulk of an offense they had in 2006 when Sean Payton was Coach of the Year. The Saints will be led by retuning QB Drew Brees, RB Reggie Bush, WR Marcus Colston and newly acquired TE Jeremy Shockey. The Defense has high hopes this year with an in flux of talent. NO expects an impact from newly acquired LB Jonathan Vilma, DE Bobby McCray and CB Randall Gay. 1st Round draft pick DT Sedrick Ellis is expected to plug up the middle and shore up the run defence. S Lance Schulters could be a veteran influence on Defense that will assist reading offensive sets.

The New Orleans Saints have a lot of hype coming into this year especially from fantasy players. Have a look at a snapshot of some NFL Future betting odds and San Diego Chargers odds:
