New Saints GM Sloup to Face Decisions, Challenges in First Offseason

New Orleans, LA - Newly hired Saints General Manager Sloup met with the press today in his introductory press conference. After thanking the Benson family for the opportunity and discussing his excitement for his new role, Sloup began answering questions, starting with his history.

"In college I majored in Political Science at Iowa State University," he began. "I honestly don't have much experience with the financial side of contract negotiations. And really, I have never played a snap of organized football." So what qualifies Sloup to hold this unique position? In response to this question, Sloup chuckled and winked at the reporter. "I'm excited to take on the challenge of building this Saints roster to return to the playoffs."

The press moved on by tackling some strategy questions. Sloup discussed the need for balance in the approach to roster building. "Obviously, it's important to put together a team that can win this year. Sean and I have discussed that at length, what strengths the team has, some areas for improvement, all that. We have some great cornerstones that we can build around in that locker room, and we're going to do our everything we can to take it to the next level.

"For the most part, that means filling gaps in free agency. Lots of times you see these guys mocking drafts based on 'well this team needs x position, so they should take x player.' It's tough to have it a hard, fast rule, but I generally think it's best to avoid putting a guy in a position where he needs to be a rock for his team while he's still adjusting to the speed of the professional level. Some guys can do it, but it's pretty rare."

The Saints go into the off-season starved for cap space, thanks to years of mismanagement and renegotiation disasters by former GM and current Goatee Salesman Mickey Loomis. "[The cap situation] affects what we can do. We'll have some tough decisions to make about who we can afford to keep around, but there is still going to be some room to bring in some veteran talent." Sloup interrupted the next question to add, "Except Dannell Ellerbee, that one's not a tough decision at all. He gone."

Part of that is deciding how to handle QB Drew Brees. "Any time you have a guy like [Drew] leading the charge, your team is going to have a chance. We are planning to meet with Drew next week to discuss our plans for the future and how he fits into it." Sloup stopped short of calling these talks contract extension negotiations, but perhaps the bigger surprise was his failure to commit to Brees for the coming season. "We're going to do what's best for the team, but we think there is middle ground to be had for both sides."

Sloup closed the conference with some thoughts about which positions he will emphasize. "The big thing is making sure you can win in the trenches on both sides of the ball. If you can win up front, you'll make things easier in the run game and the pass game, really for offense and defense. With Cameron, Terron, Andrus, we have a great foundation to build from there. We'll look forward to adding some depth there to help the whole team succeed."

Sloup Optimistic about Present, Building for Future

New Orleans, LA - After a controversial ending to the 7th round of the GML Draft (which involved a draft card with the names of two previously selected punters crossed out), new GM Sloup met with the media to put a bow on the offseason. The transactions the Saints made revealed an emphasis on stabilizing the roster for the long term instead of bringing in high priced free agents to go all in for 2016.

"As the free agent market unfolded, it was clear that we were going to be limited with the number of quality players we could bring in. The only really highly priced player we signed was Courtney Upshaw, and even then we are planning to put him into a two down role where he can thrive."

Sloup was quick to caution that the philosophy doesn't mean 2016 will be a wash.

"Drew's leadership is going to be important for us this season, as it has been since he joined the team. But we bring back almost the entire starting offense that led the NFL in passing offense last season, and our running backs are rehabbing ahead of schedule."

One notable absence from that offense is former starting left tackle Terron Armstead, who was traded to the Packers for Datone Jones, Jake Ryan, and a third round pick that was used to select Austin Hooper.

"Obviously it's tough to let go of a great player at a premium position, but it was a calculated risk. We drafted Andrus early last year, so we felt we were in a position to bring in more players for our defense. Datone and Jake are going to be able to start for us. Maybe we should have fought for more from Green Bay, but at the end of the day, a player is worth what you can receive for him, and we had an eye for the players we got in return. We also get them on rookie contracts, so it's like picking up two more draft picks, one which was spent in the first round."

Jones and Ryan are part of a rebuild of talent in the defensive line and linebackers, where 7 of the 14 players are new to the team. Sloup is hoping the variety of players he has assembled will give his coaching staff flexibility to be multiple on defense.

"Cameron [Jordan] being an anchor up front is going to give us great flexibility in our formations. Datone will fit in nicely as a strong side end in both 3-4 and 4-3 sets, then he can move inside to the 3 tech in 4 man fronts during obvious passing situations. This is going to allow us to rotate all of our linemen based on opposing personnel and each player's strengths, with the added benefit of keeping everybody fresh.

"Nobody on our defense is 30 yet, but considering some of the veteran players we brought in last year, we're not so sure that's a bad thing. We are going to take the opportunity to build our identity as a defense."

Sloup didn't feel like he had to spend the whole time talking hope and finger-crossing, though.

"If the conversations we had with other teams are any indication, we've got a pretty good secondary to build from. Teams inquired about almost every starting member of our secondary, and Jairus' contract is prohibitive of a trade."

The team hopes some identity building will take place on the other side of the ball as well, but perhaps it won't be seen on Sundays in 2016.

"We've drafted almost an entire starting offensive lineup in the last two seasons. Garrett Grayson is going to get comfortable practicing with players, many of whom we hope will take the field with him when his number gets called, whether that's this year, next year, or further down the line."

Sloup clearly targeted the draft as his best opportunity to improve the team, and some picks he made may even help the team this season. Noah Spence was spared for the Saints at the 22nd pick they traded back to in the first round.

"Noah has top ten talent from this draft, and he will give the defense a speed element we really need. Obviously we will need to keep him on the straight and narrow. We were happy to get Spriggs and Alexander after they fell further than we expected. They may find themselves in the rotation quickly to keep our older guys on the line fresh."

With all of the growth that's expected to take place, it's absolutely true that the Saints' relatively conservative approach to the off-season is going to afford them more flexibility in 2017. The Saints will take an extremely young defense into the fray in hopes of adding to a quality secondary. Even if the Saints and Brees can find enough common ground for him to re-sign for 2017, the Saints should still have additional cap room to both extend their own players and supplement the gems that are found in 2016.
