The New Orleans Saints may be one of the most talented teams in the NFC, but they may need production from these three areas to be the best.
While other teams improved, the New Orleans Saints quietly kept their crux together. With a core that includes a top quarterback, running back and wide receiver, this team’s offense could not be looking any better as they enter a new season.
However, one concern that will eventually be addressed is Drew Brees’ age. Eventually, the Saints will have to concern training a backup to take his place unless Brees can maintain his dominance as long as Tom Brady has.
The Saints, in the 2019 NFL Draft, addressed center and safety with their first two picks which were second and fourth-round selections respectively. Without many picks, this team looked to the free agency market to improve.
A few notable signings were Teddy Bridgewater, Malcom Brown and Jared Cook. Each should serve a purpose on this Saints roster. The team, even in free agency, didn’t improve enough to become the clear NFL favorite.
That being said, let’s take a look at three positions that could be problematic for the Saints or positions where they’ll need production from that was lacking last season.
