Saints Free Agents 2012: Drew Brees Among Unsigned

It wasn't long ago that a season that ended in the playoffs would have been deemed a major success for the New Orleans Saints. However, these days, it's status quo. And despite going 13-3 and winning the NFC South, it certainly felt like the status quo when the team was bounced in the Divisional Round by the San Francisco 49ers.

Obviously the first order of business is to sign quarterback Drew Brees, who will receive the franchise tag if the two sides cannot work out a long-term extension. Wide receivers Marques Colston and Robert Meachem and Pro Bowl guard Carl Nicks are also free agents that need contracts sooner than later.

Here is the full crop of impending Saints free agents, courtesy of Mac's Football Blog.
