Saints GM Mickey Loomis pointed to re-signing impending free agent LT Jermon Bushrod as his biggest challenge this offseason.
"That's easy to figure out," Loomis said. "Jermon Bushrod's a UFA who's a good player. It's going to be subject to what his perceived market is and what we're able to do. He's the No. 1 tough deal." Although the Saints were in a similarly tough salary cap crunch last offseason, Loomis managed to bring back most of his key contributors.
