6 wide receivers Saints can add while Michael Thomas is out
Wide receivers for Saints to add – No. 1: Golden Tate
One of the best remaining free agent wide receivers available is Golden Tate, who had 388 yards and two touchdowns with the Giants last year. Those numbers might not be eye popping by any means but Tate has gone for over 1,000 yards three times in his career and offers enough experience that the Saints could benefit greatly from having him on board.
Tate would be an affordable option in free agency and has plenty of experience as a starting wide receiver. He’s entering his age-33 season but as I mentioned once before, New Orleans isn’t in a position where they can be picky about who they bring in.
Would signing Tate make Saints fans jump for joy?
The important thing here is that Tate and Tre’Quan Smith can tag team as the No. 1 and 2 options until Thomas is able to return. If that can happen, this would be money well-spent for the New Orleans Saints.
With Michael Thomas slated to miss a few weeks, the Saints have to bring in help at wide receiver. Any of these guys would be major improvements to the roster.
