The Saints are finally putting last season behind them, head coach Sean Payton and newly hired defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo along with their entire coaching staff are busy sifting through the large list of free agents, and not to mention all of the potential free agents who are available out there on the market.
The Saints have several key players that they need to resign on offense, with Drew Brees topping the list, but receivers Marques Colston and Robert Meachem are due also.
Colston should be at the top of the priority list behind Brees and Carl Nicks.
Although Meachem has had some good receptions over his time in New Orleans, he’s a number three receiver, and the Saints are loaded at the wide out position.
Lance Moore, Devery Henderson, Joseph Morgan, Andy Tanner and Adrian Arrington, are all guys that should easily be able to fill Meachem’s role in the offense.
Nick’s is looking for numbers higher than fellow guard Jahri Evans, who the Saints made the highest paid offensive lineman in the league, and if the Saints can’t find the cash to sign him, he won’t be on the market long.
