The New Orleans Saints enter arguably the most intriguing offseason in franchise history, as Dennis Allen is now the head coach and the team doesn’t have a starting quarterback healthy enough to play in Week 1 as of right now.

Let’s take a look at the four easiest offseason decisions for the Saints.

4. Cut Bradley Roby

When New Orleans traded a third-round pick to the Texans in exchange for cornerback Bradley Roby, not many of us expected that cutting him less than a year later would be an easy decision. Yet here we are.

Roby was acquired to serve as Marshon Lattimore’s right-hand man in the secondary but that never really came to fruition. Roby wasn’t bad by any means but rookie Paulson Adebo stepped up and essentially made it difficult for the trade acquisition to make his mark with this defense.

By cutting Roby, the Saints save $10 million in cap space, according to Spotrac, and that’s a no-brainer, even if he had been a starter this past season. Maybe they can end up re-signing Roby but it wouldn’t be shocking if he looked for a starting gig somewhere in the league.
