Wide receiver

The New Orleans Saints are going to need to get Jameis Winston some more help. Now, it doesn’t have to be in the form of a player that may sacrifice the team’s stellar culture like Antonio Brown. However, DeSean Jackson is on the market.

A deep threat like Jackson despite him not being the receiver he was once could be paramount for Winston’s success.

The Saints will return a talented receiving corps. Led by 2019 Offensive Player of the Year Michael Thomas, Winston will have Deonte Harris, Marquez Callaway, and Tre’Quan Smith also at his disposal which will present all he needs to have some success.

Combine those four with Alvin Kamara, and the Saints have a lineup that is among the most elusive in the NFL.

The loss of Emmanuel Sanders will sting though, and the Saints should look to replace his production with a deep threat like Jackson. He fits well, but Brown and Sammy Watkins are among a plethora of receivers still on the market.
