An early free agent wish list for the New Orleans Saints

1 of 6

While much is made around the New Orleans Saints salary cap situation going into the 2016 season, the reality is that it isn’t as bad as many make it out to be.

The team can make several easy transactions that will help them get under the projected salary cap figure of $150-154 million. Despite the Saints only having 54 players under contract for next year, which has recently increased with the team’s recent signings of players to their reserve/future contracts, they’ll still be able to make plays in free agency.

I’ve assembled five free agents that would fit in perfectly with the team, and the craziest part of this list is that not one single player cracked the NFL’s Top 20 free agents. I believe each of these five players are in for a high pay-day based on their 2015 performances, but the Saints could prove to be a suitor. In other words, never say never.
