The New Orleans Saints lost Emmanuel Sanders this offseason, and there are still a plethora of high-profile receivers on the market that they can sign.

After shedding over $100 million in cap space, the New Orleans Saints are going to have to rebuild their roster, and there are still some options on the market that could help.

With little cap, there was no way they were adding a big-name receiver like Kenny Golladay, who recently signed with the New York Giants. The Saints may be able to bring in a veteran that is still out there though.

The Saints will be forced to add more receiver help because they released Emmanuel Sanders. After helping take the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2019, the Saints signed Sanders for two years, cutting him after the first.

Joining a new team with the Covid restrictions and little offseason work, Sanders, who was also on the Covid-19 list and missed games due to that, struggled to ever really find his rhythm, but the potential for him within the offense was obvious.

Sanders ended the season with 726 yards in 14 games and 5 starts. He did enough to earn his spot back (later signing with the Bills), but the team was forced to shed it. That said, let’s dive into three players they could bring in to get that dynamic WR No. 2 back in the Big Easy.
