New Orleans Saints: Top five positions the Saints must address in 2020
The New Orleans Saints come into the 2020 offseason needing not much more than a quality wide receiver to pair alongside Michael Thomas and a cornerback.
However, there are some areas the New Orleans Saints should address sooner rather than later.
Number One: Wide Reciever
It doesn’t take Einstein to know the Saints need help in the wide receiver position. In 2019, Saints’ position players accumulated a total of 415 receptions; all but 142 of those catches came from either Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara, or Jared Cook.
The Saints have got to find reliable pass catchers to team up with their Pro Bowl trio. The Saints took a step in the right direction by signing former Washington Redskins receiver Maurice Harris to a futures/reserve contract back on January 16, 2020.
He is a solid receiver who could definitely compete for a roster spot this offseason. The Saints should also take full advantage of a solid free agent receiver class this year. Guys like AJ Green, Devin Funchess, and Robby Anderson would thrive being on a competitive roster.
The Saints could also go the cheaper route and ink guys like Chester Rogers, Robert Foster, and Nelson Agholor to deals. In almost storybook fashion, the 2020 NFL Draft is expected to be one of the better wide receiver drafts in recent memory.
I fully expect the Saints to exit the draft with at least one if not multiple receivers. The Saints have proven to be excellent at finding diamonds in the rough (i.e. Taysom Hill, Deonte Harris, and Alvin Kamara) and I fully expect them to continue that tradition in 2020.
