1. Tony Jones Jr.

One of the biggest storylines for the New Orleans Saints this offseason is what is going to happen with Alvin Kamara. The running back could miss time with a suspension and if that happens, who is going to fill his role?

Mark Ingram is the obvious answer because he was the thunder to Kamara’s lightning last year and in years past. Ingram isn’t the same player he once was though and the Saints will need to have another option to pair with the former Heisman Trophy winner.

Last summer, Tony Jones Jr. impressed everyone throughout the preseason and put on such a strong performance that Latavius Murray ended up getting cut to save money. Jones went on to disappoint during the season and an injury forced the Saints to trade for Ingram.

With UDFA fan favorite Abram Smith joining the team, Jones is going to have to show up big this summer. He’s skating on thin ice because Smith is unknown while fans got to see Jones in the regular season and he wasn’t as good as advertised.

These five players need to do what they can to get off the thin ice and back onto land if they want to keep their jobs moving forward.
