The New Orleans Saints have a ton of voids to fill, and the 2016 NFL free agency period, which rolls around next week, is a great place to start.

Free agency is right around the corner and the New Orleans Saints actually have some money to spend. After parting ways with Brandon Browner and longtime great Marques Colston, they should have some wiggle room in the salary cap department.

Then, if they do give Drew Brees that extension, as most expect, they should be in good shape.  There still is the possibility of restructuring other contracts such as Thomas Morstead and Max Unger, which could potentially put the Saints around 30 million under the cap.

With that much money, general manager Mickey Loomis could make free agency very interesting for the organization and its fans. Obviously, there are some players who are just going to be too expensive for the Saints to go after, or I think will sign with their current team or be franchised tagged, so I just left them out. Here are some players who I think the New Orleans Saints should go after in free agency.

Next: Damon Harrison
