The free-agent market has been tricky for the New Orleans Saints because they don’t have a lot of money to spend. However, with these three cornerbacks who weren’t signed in the first or really second wave of free agency, deals might be able to be done.

These three veteran cornerbacks would be excellent additions alongside Marshon Lattimore and they would also allow Chauncey Gardner-Johnson to remain the slot corner and safety backup. Most of all, these guys would allow the Saints to not spend a draft pick on a cornerback.

With cornerback being the highest Saints draft need, they could open up a pick by signing a veteran cornerback and not drafting one.

Right now, the team does not have a clear-cut No. 2 defensive back. They have options that they could put there, but no one stands out. Because of that, most analysts have the cornerback position as the most needed drafting position for the Saints.

If New Orleans was able to reel in one of these guys, they could spend another draft pick addressing other needs on the team like WR, DT, DE, and others. Their signing would also prove more beneficial in the talent and experience they have.
