Now that the New Orleans Saints have signed right tackle Ryan Ramczyk to an extension, it’s time to look at some other players on the Saints roster to keep in the Big Easy long-term.

The Saints were wise to lock Ramczyk up long-term and they did so to the tune of a five-year deal worth $90 million. It’s a move that keeps their right tackle in New Orleans for the next half-decade and continues to shore up their offensive line, which has been one of the greatest strengths on the team in recent years.

Even with Ramczyk signed, however, the Saints shouldn’t call it a day and be content with just keeping him. There are three more players on the roster who they need to attempt to get deals done with and while all three aren’t likely, they need to try and at least knock out one of these deals, if not two.

Yes, the Saints are in the bottom 10 in cap space per Over the Cap but this deal showed they can afford to keep good players on the team and that’s important considering there are still extensions that need to be issued. Hopefully, the Saints aren’t content with just this extension and continue to sign other guys long-term, but here are the three names they should really zero in on.
