With all the buzz surrounding the superstars, the new free-agent additions, and the draftees, these New Orleans Saints have shown up under the radar.
Over the course of the last six months, the New Orleans Saints have been one of the most talked-about teams of the league. They went into the 2019 playoffs as a huge Super Bowl contender, just to be knocked out in the Wild Card round.
Superstar wide receiver Michael Thomas broke a long-time single-season receptions record previously held by Marvin Harrison, and future Hall of Famer Drew Brees broke a couple of his own previously set records.
Then the Saints went on to add ex-49er Emmanuel Sanders to their roster in a stellar free agent pick-up.
They also added Malcolm Jenkins, and they re-signed Andrus Peat, making him one of the highest-paid offensive lineman in the league, a rather odd move given Peat’s struggles for the bulk of the 2019 season.
They also picked up three draftees in the NFL draft that have created a buzz around them. Throughout all of this, there have been several Saints that have gone under the radar and have seemingly been forgotten about — here are three of them.
