Kwon Alexander and Cameron Jordan both took to Twitter to share some opinions on the New Orleans Saints and what lies ahead for them.
While the offseason has yet to heat up like it’s bound to, some within the New Orleans Saints’ franchise are already both looking towards next year and doing their best to recruit new talent to the Big Easy.
Although the offseason hasn’t hit full steam, the Saints have made several moves that will benefit them both in the short- and long-term future.
One of those was saving $24 million in restructuring Drew Brees‘ contract. The future Hall of Famer is expected to retire this offseason after missing four or more games in the last two consecutive seasons.
The other notable move is that the team opted to release Nick Easton. Easton played as a backup guard/center last season for the Saints, and when players like Andrus Peat went down, he filled a critical role.
That said, moves are being made, and there will be more coming.
One that Cameron Jordan wants to see is the team sign superstar defensive end J.J. Watt.
While Watt is older now, he would still be terrific on the opposite side of Jordan. The Saints could especially use the help on the line since Trey Hendrickson, who finished top-ten in sacks, is likely to sign elsewhere this offseason.
As for Jordan, he made his feelings known about Twitter, doing his best to use the cool New Orleans climate as the reason why Watt should bring his talents to the Big Easy.
Jordan isn’t the only Saints defender to recently take to Twitter though. Midseason linebacker addition Kwon Alexander also opted to share his view on staying with the team via the popular social media site.
While some speculate that Alexander could be cut, it seems unlikely that he’ll be sent packing, especially since he’d have to pass a physical first.
Having torn his Achilles in the middle of the season, Alexander played well with the team. Given his eight-figure contract, Alexander being released made sense, but his value to the team is also high after a phenomenal few weeks on the roster.
Alexander wants to stay and Jordan wants Watt in the Big Easy. If both those happen, the Saints are looking at another top-five defense in 2021.
