New Orleans Saints: 3 free agents that could bolster talent
With the New Orleans Saints dealing with depth and injury issues, the free-agent pool could be the answer to their problems and lead to a Super Bowl run.
The New Orleans Saints neglected to do anything about their depth issues at the trade deadline and then again when Josh Gordon hit the waiver wire. They are going to have to act and act soon if they are going to increase their talent and depth level to make it to the Super Bowl.
Last week, the Saints saw a devastating loss to the 1-7 Atlanta Falcons. In that game, they also lost Marshon Lattimore, their best cover corner, to a hamstring injury of an unknown length of time.
If injuries were to increase or current injuries were to persist then the New Orleans Saints would find themselves in a hole that might cost them the Lombardi trophy.
They already proved at the quarterback and running back position that they have the depth they need, but what about the secondary, the receiving core, the offensive line, those are the real questions.
There is talent on the free-agent market that would make for quality backups in case of the unfortunate happening. No one ever wants to see a player go down with an injury — ever, but every team needs to be prepared for it to happen.
Here are the top three free agents that would immediately make an impact or give security to the New Orleans Saints players, coaches, and fans.
