The 2017 New Orleans Saints have a lot riding in the balance.

The 2017 New Orleans Saints will be counting on several components to go in their favor if they want success this season. Rookies contributing, second-year athletes making big leaps, acquired free agents helping. It’ll all be crucial in the Saints plan to improve this season. After struggling last season and once again going 7-9, there isn’t any room for error. Not this year anyway.

Saints fans are sick of the same old 7-9. The city of New Orleans is sick of the Saints going 7-9. It’s awful but at this point in time, the New Orleans Saints are basically the Jeff Fisher of the NFL. This team needs change, and the only way it’ll happen is with some amazing players playing in black and gold.

If anyone knows how the National Football League works by now, as much as it is a team sport, it’s also about how players individually contribute for their respected teams. Athletes help to make or break a game on any given Sunday. The Saints have a talented roster, with a lot of players worth keeping track of. These players could help to make or break this approaching season for the 2017 New Orleans Saints. At this point, it’s just a matter of getting the right players to do their respected jobs accurately.

In this week’s article, I reveal five Saints athletes that should keep a close eye on as the 2017 season approaches.

Let’s begin with the star cornerback drafted from Ohio State during the 1st round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
