Saints 2012 Schedule: New Orleans Opens At Home Against Redskins

On Tuesday, the full schedule was released for the 2012 NFL season. Coming just over a week before the 2012 NFL draft, it is hard not to see how much anticipation is building for the coming season. The New Orleans Saints will have all eyes on them in the fall, as they will be recovering from the "Bountygate" scandal and its fallout. Head coach Sean Payton will be serving a one-year suspension that cost him the entire 2012 season.

In the early offseason, superstar quarterback Drew Brees has also displayed some hard feelings toward the Saints brass and has yet to sign his franchise tender. It is clear that there is no shortage of storylines to watch regarding the 2012 New Orleans team.
