3 reasons the Saints aren’t fooling anyone with their high-level success
They maintain their talent
Next, we have a key reason for their sustained success. We know they could lose a few top-tier stars like Demario Davis and Alvin Kamara, but the reason they’ve maintained their success is because they’ve kept their talent in the Big Easy.
Look at Michael Thomas. He signed a massive contract extension last offseason then went out and put up historic numbers. The Saints have bred a culture of high-level success, and they’ve continued to place their trust in those that they know will help keep it that way.
The two superstars on both sides of the ball are locked up for at least the next few seasons. With Cameron Jordan, the team’s defensive end that recorded 15.5 sacks a year ago, that side of the ball is also taken care off.
What’s nice about Thomas and the offense is that in 2019 they proved that even without Drew Brees they can succeed.
If the team can thrive with no Brees and a healthy Thomas and Jordan while also watching Kamara, who could leave this offseason, nurse injuries early in the 2019 season, that will bode well for the future.
