The NFL offseason is underway and the New Orleans Saints organization will see the exit of many familiar faces on and off the field.

However, the Saints have added secondary coach Kris Richard which may prove to be the most important signing of the offseason for them. The New Orleans Saints have had consistent success over the last four seasons with a great coaching staff and great draft picks.

Nevertheless, another offseason is underway which brings the departure of many coaches and players that have been instrumental in the Saints’ recent success. For the Saints to remain one of the NFC’s best, there must be more than enough quality talent amongst players and coaches.

This offseason the New Orleans Saints have recently hired secondary coach Kris Richard as the new secondary coach replacing coach Aaron Glenn. Kris Richard, former defensive backs coach with the Dallas Cowboys, has spent time coaching notable names such as Xavier Woods and Eric Reid.

However, Richard’s most successful tenure came in Seattle as the defensive coordinator behind the historic “Legion of Boom” defense. During this time, Reid coached elite NFL talent including names such as Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, and Kam Chancellor.

As an NFL coach, Kris Richard has shown the ability to unlock the full potential of the players that he has coached and New Orleans hopes that he can repeat the same success.

Here are three players that may flourish with Kris Richard.
