t's the right 53.
That's not to suggest that there's no possibility of change, particularly at the bottom of the roster, or if injury creates a need.
But Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis said Tuesday he feels comfortable with the 53-man roster that New Orleans will enter the regular-season opener with Sunday against Atlanta in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
"At the end of the day I believe we've got the right 53 players on the roster," Loomis told the audience at the Greater New Orleans Quarterback Club.
"We're ready to go."
Loomis covered a range of subjects, beginning with the fact that the franchise had a good, routine, smooth offseason.
"No suspensions, no lockout, no protracted contract negotiations, no wire-tapping," he said, smiling.
From there, he addressed the team's two-pronged offseason goal of preparing the players and evaluating them.
