3 low-profile free agents that could still help the New Orleans Saints

After the signings of Malcolm Jenkins and Emmanuel Sanders and the re-signing of Andrus Peat, the linebacking corps might be the biggest need that the New Orleans Saints still have. Alec Ogletree could meet that need.
The seven-year vet spent the first part of his career with the St. Louis (now Los Angeles) Rams and then the next two years with the New York Giants. Last year, Ogletree totaled 80 tackles, 1.0 sacks, one interception, and three hits on the quarterback.
Ogletree started all 13 games he appeared in last season. He may not be a highlight real linebacker, but he is still a guy that can get the job done. At this point, that is all the Saints need to be looking for.
Whether Ogletree would come in and start is the question, but he would come in and make an immediate impact. The injury record the Saints linebackers, especially Anzalone, have would suggest that Ogletree would be starting sooner rather than later.
