Elbert Mack

Okay this is a no brainer as far as I’m concerned.  Mack showed some real promise when he joined the Saints after the latter part of the season and surpassed Johnny Patrick as the nickel corner starter when Corey White went down.

Mack also filled in when injuries hit with Jabari Greer and did a admirable job.  He took his lone interception of the season against the New York Giants for a touchdown.  After being signed in Week 10 he also registered 14 tackles for the season.

Signing the aggressive cornerback for the upcoming season shouldn’t be a problem unless the Saints still unnamed defensive coordinator simply wants to move on from him, but I don’t see why they would.  Not going to be surprising to see this free agent signing happen.
