The New Orleans Saints shouldn’t sign Kenny Stills if cut by Dolphins
Wide receiver depth
As aforementioned, the Saints aren’t void of receivers. Aside from bringing on Stills, they’d have to cut another receiver, one which they’re probably fond of.
12 Saints saw at least some snaps at receiver this preseason.

Two of them, Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr., are absolute locks to make the 53-man roster. Following those two, it’s assumed Keith Kirkwood and Tre’Quan Smith will also crack the roster after making their name known last season.
After Smith and Kirkwood, expect Emmanuel Butler’s name to be on the roster. They’ve loved his playmaking throughout training camp although fans weren’t able to see much of him during the preseason.
We’re then talking about or two spots for Travin Dural, Deonte Harris, Simmie Cobbs and Cyril Grayson. Now, to add Stills and keep just one more receiver, you’d have to release them all along with Lil’Jordan Humphrey, a 6-foot-3 rookie the team also seems to like.
Back in 2014, Stills was 69 yards shy of 1,000 yards. However, that team finished just 7-9. There’s no telling how well Stills would do as the team’s third-string receiver. Two successful seasons with New Orleans and then four-straight somewhat successful seasons with Miami.
Stills has shown that he’s a capable receiver, but do the Saints depth at the position make Stills’ addition much less reasonable?
