New Orleans Saints newcomers who could start – No. 2: Brian Poole

Brian Poole is the newest face to the Saints’ roster and it was a long-time coming for Saints fans. This team needed to add a cornerback and once Richard Sherman was no longer an option, Poole was one of the best remaining options.

I mentioned Paulson Adebo as a projected starter earlier and the reason he’s so low on this list is because of Poole. With the addition of Poole, the Saints now have Marshon Lattimore, Patrick Robinson, and Poole as their main three starters.

Adding Poole was a great move for the Saints because it gives them a sure thing at cornerback. Poole is coming off an injury but he’s proven in the past that he can be a good player and he’ll hopefully be a big boost to their secondary.

With Poole signing just a one-year deal, he’ll be out to prove himself in 2021 to land a larger contract following the season. Hopefully, he goes all out for New Orleans and makes it difficult on opposing passers.
