The New Orleans Saints have made some tremendous moves in free agency but they shouldn’t call it quits yet. Who could they still sign that could make an immediate impact on the team? 

While free agency got off to a slow start for the New Orleans Saints, they’ve made a splash over the past month and a half. The additions of Tyrann Mathieu and Jarvis Landry give the Saints a boost in both the secondary and in the wide receiver room and they had to make those moves.

New Orleans has a pretty solid roster overall but the team could still add some players who could join the team and slide into starter roles. Let’s take a look at three free agents who can join the black and gold and immediately contend for a starting role.

3. Rob Gronkowski

This one won’t happen but there’s no denying that if for whatever reason Rob Gronkowski decided to join the Saints, he’d be their immediate starting tight end and would be the best option they’ve had there in quite some time.

Gronkowski hasn’t made a decision on what he’s going to do in 2022 yet but if he returns, it’d be to play with Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Not only is he not going to catch passes from another quarterback but joining a team that faces Brady twice a year is probably the last thing Gronk wants to do.

It’d be cool to see Gronk join the Saints but it’s not going to happen.
