On Friday, we examined five teams planning for sweeping changes on defense this season. The New Orleans Saints topped our list.
The Saints are switching from a 4-3 defensive scheme to the 3-4 under recently installed coordinator Rob Ryan, meaning everything will be new for his players.
Well, almost everything.
"Personality-wise they are very similar," Jenkins said, per The Associated Press. "They're cut from the same cloth in that they know that players and matchups are what defense is all about and they have a lot of personality and they're aggressive in their play-calling."

Besides, Ryan wasn't brought to New Orleans to mimic the tactics of Williams, now with the Tennessee Titans, but to repair a defense that gave up a head-spinning 7,042 yards last season, worst in NFL history.
Fixing that problem without a heat-seeking league-office investigation would be a bonus.
