Number One: Josh Norman

Despite Josh Norman really only making headlines in 2020 for being the recipient of a vicious Derrick Henry stiff-arm, the veteran cornerback actually had a pretty solid season with the Buffalo Bills.

Norman, 33, played in just nine games with the Bills in 2020 and still managed to accumulate 24 tackles, four passes defended, and an interception that he ran in for a touchdown.

Norman is one of the best cornerbacks of the past decade and he has always been considered a great addition to any secondary. Norman, the former Carolina Panther, could be a great veteran addition to add to the needy New Orleans secondary.

The Saints are very much likely to select a young cornerback in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft and having Josh Norman as a veteran mentor could help ease the transition for a young guy.

Finding capable cornerbacks in the NFL is not an easy task and the Saints should know that better than anyone. The Saints still have a Super Bowl window open and they should look to add a good veteran leader to the secondary in Josh Norman.
