The New Orleans Saints’ defense is going to be a ferocious unit in 2022 but that doesn’t mean they can’t keep adding help. Bringing back Malcom Brown could make sense. 

In a surprising move, Malcom Brown was released by the Jaguars on Wednesday. Brown spent the 2019 and 2020 seasons with the New Orleans Saints but they traded him last offseason to Jacksonville.

Despite a decent year in 2021, Brown found himself lower on the depth chart and that ultimately led to his release. Now, the Saints have a chance to bring him back and keep their defense in tip-top shape for 2022.

The benefits of bringing Brown back are that he knows the defense and it wouldn’t take him long to get up to speed with this group. During the two years he was with the team, he was a big part of the interior defensive line and great against the run.

While the Saints’ defensive line looks pretty good, they could use some more depth pieces at defensive tackle and Brown would fit that bill.

Reuniting with Malcom Brown makes perfect sense for Saints

While Brown will probably be a popular name for other teams looking for depth along the d-line, he has history with the Saints and that could be a helpful part in bringing him back.

Before Brown joined the Saints in 2019, he had spent the first four years of his career with the Patriots, who took him in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft. The Texas product won two Super Bowls in New England before teaming up with the Saints so he has plenty of experience in big games.

If New Orleans were able to get Brown back in the black and gold, their defense would have a great run-stopper to plug in when needed and it’d be yet another piece in this puzzle.
