Saints Hire Gregg Williams as DC

Saints fans got some great news today, the team has reached an agreement with Gregg Williams to be the new defensive coordinator. While this most alone won't fix the Saints defensive issues, this hiring shows that the Saints are serious about getting their defense in shape.

Williams was one of the hottest coordinator candidates available and for him to go to the Saints shows that New Orleans is a viable playoff contender in the near future. With the league's most potent offense, Williams will have a chance to improve the other side of the ball.

There are some nice NFL players on the Saints defense, but there are more areas that need to be improved. The secondary is still a mess and the defensive ends can't get consistent pressure on the QB. With free agency starting in March, it will be interesting to see what free agents decide to play in New Orleans in Williams' aggressive defense.
