With training camp just over two weeks away, we thought we'd rewind and take a look at Bradley Handwerger's list of the ten most important - indispensable - Saints players, originally published in March.
We're not talking about best players; we're saying who means the most to the team at this moment.
One positive for the team is that none of the ten, nor the five 'honorable mentions' departed the team this offseason and only one appears to have a major contract squabble.

Without giving away the entire 10 most indispensable Saints, we're fairly certain you can guess who No. 1 is.
This list is the view of WWL-TV.com sports writer Bradley Handwerger and not the station's. We welcome feedback in the comments section, we only ask two things keep the comments clean and no personal attacks. There will be differences of opinion. It's what we love about America.
