There’s no denying the Saints improved this offseason, but they did so with some under-the-radar talent that’ll be coming to the Big Easy in 2020.
The New Orleans Saints have acquired plenty of talent this offseason to help them make a legitimate run to the Super Bowl, but some of the pickups are very much underrated when looking at the ability they can bring to the roster.
The Saints hit the headlines with the major signings of wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and safety Malcolm Jenkins, as the latter will be returning to the team since helping them win a Super Bowl over a decade ago.
But those guys are superstars and can’t really be considered underrated. At least for Sanders, his signing filled a major hole and was considered one of the Saints’ best offseason transactions.
An underrated pickup is a guy who was signed late (in most cases) and may not be highly sought after but has the potential to thrive with your organization. Let’s dive right into the three most underrated signings the Saints made this offseason.
