New Orleans Saints: Laying down a blueprint for the rest of free agency
Sign Nickell Robey-Coleman
It’s time to move on from you-know-what and let bygones be bygones. Robey-Coleman did what any wise defender in today’s league would do. If you can beat ’em, join ’em.
Apart from that, the former Bill isn’t so bad at football, either. He came into the league undrafted, saw some success in Buffalo but broke out in Los Angeles. In three seasons with the Rams, he recorded 122 tackles, 3 interceptions, and 9 tackles-for-loss.
He’s slowly become one of the most well-respected nickel corners in the league, and he’s done so by staying on the field. In his seven-year career, Coleman has missed only one game. He’s a workhorse who will further solidify the win-at-all-cost mentality in New Orleans.
Adding Robey-Coleman to the rotation will also free up the high-flying Chauncey Gardner-Johnson from the nickel spot, allowing him to roam the backfield and be plugged in wherever Dennis Allen sees fit.
Or Sean Payton could sign him and we could spend all season throwing cabbage at him, because why not?
