Now that the season has ended, the New Orleans Saints’ final workloads are locked in heading into the offseason.

Max Unger, who missed 10 games in 2014, earns the Iron Man award. Unger missed just one snap — he lost his shoe — and played 1,158 snaps out of 1,159.

Defensively, Kenny Vaccaro bounced back from his own injury-beset season by playing all but three snaps, taking 1,063 out of a possible 1,066.

Three other Saints broke the 1,000-snap barrier: Drew Brees(1,089), Zach Strief (1,075) and Brandon Browner (1,024).

Two more Saints played more than 90 percent of the snaps on defense. Middle linebacker Stephone Anthony, whose injury in the season finale caused him to miss the 1,000-snap mark by just nine plays, took 93 percent of the snaps.

And defensive end Cam Jordan (981) played 92 percent of the snaps, an incredible figure for a defensive lineman.
