Reshad Jones, SS

Reshad Jones is the second safety on this list, which should give you insight into how bad the Saints safety situation is at times. However, Jones could be a player that could end up coming in and playing a longer role for the team than expected.

It happened to Janoris Jenkins last year. He was picked up in Week 15 of the 2019 season because of an injury to Eli Apple; and now he is the starting cornerback for the team, and Apple is a free agent.

Reshad Jones played for Miami for nine years before not being re-signed to another contract this offseason. He has two total Pro-Bowl appearances in those nine years. In his most recent starting season, Jones totaled three interceptions for 109 yards and a touchdown.

He also added 135 tackles, two sacks, ten passes defended, and nine tackles for a loss in his highest seasons. Jones would be an excellent addition to the Saints’ secondary and could even take over for one of the two safeties next season.
