The New Orleans Saints' defense was MUCH better last year than we've seen in years. A good chunk of that was due to incredible drafting, but adding through free agency can have a huge impact as well.

New Saints linebacker Demario Davis is thrilled with the opportunity to play for a winning organization. The Mississippi native says playing close to home was also a huge factor in his decision to ink a free agent deal with the Black and Gold.

The 29-year-old played for the New York Jets last season and the former Arkansas State standout was very productive with 135 tackles and five sacks.
