The New Orleans Saints sent seven players to the 2020 Pro Bowl, which was more Pro Bowl players nominated than any other NFC team.
Expect the return of Drew Brees to the 2017, 2018, 2019 NFC South Champions, with more help from key offseason acquisitions, to capitalize on another Super Bowl run and post several players in the Pro Bowl if the team isn’t preparing to play in February.
Let’s hope they are though. After a solid offseason with several key additions coming into the Big Easy, the Saints are expected to be one of the best teams in the NFC.
Out of the seven Saints players competing in the 2020 Pro Bowl, two players made their first pro bowl appearance. The team’s clutch kicker, Will Lutz and All-Pro kick returner, Deonte Harris, were the Saints to achieve their first Pro Bowl nod last season
With the expectations of the upcoming team success, due to the recent draft class of high talent, established quarterback play and a solidified front seven, expect some quality Saints players to gain national spotlight and earn their first NFC pro bowl spot.
Although not necessarily a small market, the Saints typically aren’t respected too well on the national spotlight, something that must change. That said, let’s take a look at the three Saints who could be taking their first trip to the Pro Bowl after the 2020 season.
