Saints: 2 must-sign FAs still available this late in the offseason
Last season, the New Orleans Saints had a problem in the secondary. The only prominent cornerback on the roster is star Marshon Lattimore. Eli Apple, who played opposite Lattimore, was not that good and was rightfully so released this offseason.
Toward the end of the season, the Giants released cornerback Janoris Jenkins right when Eli Apple got injured. The New Orleans Saints quickly signed Jenkins off of the waivers, and he became the new starting cornerback. This offseason, they restructured his contract.
That is still only two cornerbacks on the roster who can make up a Super Bowl-winning secondary. Luckily there is still one on the free-agent market, Logan Ryan led the Titans secondary to the AFC Championship last season. He has the experience, skills, and knowledge the Saints need.
He would provide depth, either himself or by moving Janoris Jenkins to the bench, to the cornerback position, but they would also add a starting cornerback that can play at a high level. The New Orleans Saints would be immediately benefitted by signing the ex-Titan.
Don’t get us wrong, the Saints have a stellar team. A team that most of the NFL would look at and be envious that they have so many stars, depth, and quality players, but they can still look to be even better than they are by adding these players.
