The New Orleans Saints have had a dominant roster the last few seasons, but they could do without a few veterans in 2020.

There’s no denying that last season ended in agony. For the New Orleans Saints, their 13-3 record left many positive takeaways.

However, for yet another stellar regular season, the Saints saw pain show itself in the form of an early-than-anticipated postseason exit. To conclude the 2019 season, the Saints lost in the Wild Card round to Minnesota.

This wasn’t even a game the Saints should’ve played had they beaten the Falcons both times or just maintained their lead against the 49ers. Ultimately, they were awarded that third seed and took another postseason blow.

Thankfully, the quickly shook that off and went out and improved their roster. Emmanuel Sanders, Cesar Ruiz, Zack Baun and Malcolm Jenkins will all be high-impact additions. All four outside of potentially Baun will start Day 1.

At the same time, this team has a few players that they could do either replacing or dropping a few spots on their depth chart. That said, let’s take a look at a few Saints that have outstayed their welcome in the Big Easy.
