The New Orleans Saints have managed to claw their way out of salary cap hell, but in doing so they created a major void at cornerback.
The New Orleans Saints had to make some major changes to their roster this offseason and in doing so they created several voids that need some attention. One of those positions is the cornerback position.
The Saints were forced to release veteran cornerback Janoris Jenkins this offseason in an effort to create some additional cap space, but they have a significant lack of talent in that area now.
Jenkins helped fill the void left by Eli Apple‘s injury in 2019. He transitioned into the No. 2 cornerback role alongside Marshon Lattimore for much of last season. PJ Williams and Patrick Robinson were behind him.
They may target cornerback in the draft, but bringing in a veteran free agent also seems like an ideal move. Thankfully for the Saints, there are still some very affordable options on the free-agent market.
Let’s take a look at three cornerbacks the New Orleans Saints should pursue.
