The New Orleans Saints still have a few additions they could make to round out their offseason, and they could come from an unexpected pool of players.
With the sports world being shut down due to quarantine, the NFL Draft is one of the few events that fans are looking forward to. So far this season, the New Orleans Saints have already addressed some major concerns regarding acquiring a second receiver to pair along with Michael Thomas when they signed Emmanuel Sanders, but there are still plenty of holes to fill.
However, the draft isn’t the only option that teams have for adding talent to their rosters.
Because of the coronavirus derailing the season, the new XFL made the decision to not return in 2021. Certain players like PJ Walker and Jordan Ta’amu have already found homes in the NFL, but there is still plenty of talent available.
New Orleans has already shown that they have an interest in the players who are now available free agents considering the contract that they offered to Deatrick Nichols. Nichols led the XFL in interceptions and has signed a one-year deal with the team a few weeks ago.
The team is hopeful that Nichols will add some competition or at least bolster talent at the cornerback position, but there are still plenty of needs on the roster.
So who are some names that could find a new team in New Orleans?
