3 players the New Orleans Saints could release this offseason
P.J. Williams is currently operating as the No. 3 cornerback behind Marshon Lattimore and Janoris Jenkins. However, because of recent injuries, Williams has been forced into playing big minutes, and he hasn’t really stepped up to the plate how we expected him to.
In fact, cornerback No. 4 Patrick Robinson has almost played just as well if not better than Williams with half the price tag. Williams has 40 tackles and two fumbles recovered on the year. Robinson has 40 tackles, two passes defended, and one interception as well.
In a quote from John Sigler from Saints Wire on Patrick Robinson, “Robinson, in particular, flashed against a solid Lions receiving crops and came away with an end-zone interception to help the Saints comeback effort.”
The Saints can let Williams go this offseason and be perfectly fine with Patrick Robinson and Justin Hardee. Because he is already a free agent, they will have no monetary compensation owed him should they decide to not bring him back next year.
