New Orleans Saints Roster – Wide Receivers (6)

  • Marquez Callaway
  • Tre’Quan Smith
  • Deonte Harris
  • Lil’Jordan Humphrey
  • Ty Montgomery
  • Kawaan Baker

I didn’t think it’d be tough to narrow down who should make the team at wide receiver, but it was quite challenging!

First and foremost, yes, Harris might start the season with a suspension, but for the time being, I elected to include him here. If/when he is suspended, someone from the practice squad would be called up to fill his place.

Harris was one of three obvious picks here along with Callaway and Smith. Humphrey and Montgomery were fairly easy inclusions too, as Humphrey had a nice preseason and the Saints can use Montgomery in a multitude of ways.

That left one spot between Baker, Easop Winston, Chris Hogan, and Kevin White and I ultimately went with the seventh-rounder to fill that final spot on the roster. Winston would be the ideal pick to land on the practice squad and fill in for Harris when he’s out.

Hogan was never going to be the answer unless he dazzled this preseason and White might be out of chances now to stick on an NFL roster.
