New Orleans Saints: 3 players that must live up to sky-high expectations in 2020
The New Orleans Saints are one of the best teams in the NFL, and even they have some players that must live up to their sky-high expectations.
Primed to win the NFC South for a fourth straight season, the New Orleans Saints had a terrific offseason, adding necessary talent to the roster.
With the addition of Malcolm Jenkins, the Saints watched Vonn Bell leave for Cincinnati. On top of that, they drafted Cesar Ruiz and subsequently released Larry Warford.
On top of all of the moves, they made this offseason was the addition of Emmanuel Sanders, the 49ers No. 1 receiver from last season, arguably the most crucial move of the offseason for the Saints. Sanders is expected to help ease the load for superstar Michael Thomas.
The Saints had one of the league’s best offseasons after a 13-3 2019 campaign. With a 41-year-old Drew Brees leading the way, the Saints will have a few players that, if they shine, could easily be Pro Bowl selections.
Along those lines, the team brought in a few players and will return a few players that have sky-high expectations for this potential Super Bowl-contending roster. That said, let’s dive into three players that must meet those uber-high expectations.
