Saints free agency went from meh to amazing in the last month and a half but the New Orleans Saints don’t have to call it quits there. Ndamukong Suh is still on the market and could make a lot of sense with this defense.
When free agency began, the New Orleans Saints were still in the running to trade for Deshaun Watson, so they weren’t making moves like the other teams were. After Watson agreed to be traded to the Browns, the Saints could finally move on and start making moves and that’s exactly what they did.
The two biggest moves they made were signing Tyrann Mathieu and Jarvis Landry. Mathieu will replace Marcus Williams, who left in free agency, while Landry will give New Orleans yet another strong receiver. They haven’t had three strong receivers in quite some time.
With those moves in the books, what else could the black and gold do to give the Buccaneers a run for their money in the NFC South?
Well, Matt Bowen of ESPN thinks that signing Ndamukong Suh could make sense for the Saints. The article is behind a paywall but essentially, Bowen mentioned that Suh would be a great fit for Dennis Allen’s defense because the former No. 2 overall pick can still create disruption.
Saints Free Agency: Is Ndamukong Suh a fit for New Orleans?
Suh was a standout during his time at Nebraska and went second overall in the 2010 NFL Draft to the Lions where he played for five years. He spent three years in Miami, one year with the Rams, and for the past three years has played for the Buccaneers.
Suh isn’t the same dominant pass-rusher he once was but he’s posted six sacks in each of his last two seasons, proving that he still has plenty left in the tank.
For a team that values defense as much as the Saints do, Suh would be a pretty spectacular fit for them. They’ve been aggressive in Allen’s first offseason as the head coach and maybe it wouldn’t be shocking to see the former Cornhusker join one of the league’s best defenses.
