Yannick Ngakoue

In preparation for losing Hendrickson and the fact that many of our secondary and offensive weapons are under contract, we end with another defensive end.

The 6-foot-2 defensive end spent the second half of the season with the Ravens after Minnesota gave up on their season. With the two teams combined, he put up eight sacks and four forced fumbles. He was a disruptor for both teams.

The high-priced defensive end also had 11 quarterback hits. Entering his fifth season in the league next year, Ngakoue has elite potential, and given his sky-high ceiling, it’s unlikely he takes anything under eight-figures.

That said, most of these free agents will price the Saints out of their market as New Orleans is in one of the worst cap positions in NFL history. However, Ngakoue certainly would give the Saints the league’s most formidable line.

All eight of these free agents would take the Saints to a new level, but it’s unlikely they’ll be able to sign or re-sign any of them. New Orleans just needs to hope they can get under the cap and bring back a capable starting quarterback.
