Again, two of the four secondary all-decade players for the Saints, play on the current roster. The Saints secondary has never been one of extreme notability. That makes this list of players the tier one of that group, and the gap is not small.

Marshon Lattimore is by far the best cornerback of the decade. Lattimore was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in 2017 out of Ohio State University. Since then, Lattimore has tallied up 169 tackles, five forced fumbles with four recoveries, and eight interceptions one for a touchdown.

The other most notable player is also on the New Orleans Saints. Marcus Williams has intercepted more passes in this decade than any other Saints player while only playing in a measly 46 games.

According to John Sliger from Saints Wire (who we agreed with), “Back in the early 2010s, however, Greer was one of the most-productive defenders on the team with 7 interceptions (fifth-most) and set the high-water mark for everyone with 55 pass deflections from 2010 to 2013.”
