Curtis Lofton LB NO 21 Days

Lofton finished the year with 145 tackles (100 solo) in 16 games, playing 995 of the Saints' 1,021 defensive snaps, according to Mike Triplett of ESPN.com.

Lofton has now notched over 100 tackles in six straight season, and though he isn't much of a pass rusher (only seven career sacks), his biggest attribute may be his ability to stay healthy, as he's never missed a game in his seven-year NFL career. Though he's due $7 million in salary and bonuses and has a cap cost of $9 million, it's likely the Saints will find a way to restructure his contract in order to alleviate some of their salary-cap burdens. Assuming he remains a Saint, Lofton can be counted on as one of the most reliable IDP options for owners in need of tackles.
