The New Orleans Saints have a new offensive coordinator after agreeing to a deal with Klint Kubiak. Kubiak has been coaching in the NFL since 2013 but most recently served as the pass game coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers, who just lost in the Super Bowl. Kubiak will now bring his knowledge and experience to New Orleans.

While the Saints already have talented players like Alvin Kamara and Chris Olave on the offense, it’s pretty common for players to follow assistant coaches to new teams. That means there’s a chance that Kubiak could bring some of the talented players from the NFC Championship team to New Orleans with him.

Which players could that be? Let’s take a look.

3. 49ers offensive lineman Jon Feliciano could follow Klint Kubiak to Saints

A position group that the Saints will have to address this offseason is the offensive line. The unit wasn’t bad in 2023 but it could definitely be better. With questions about the future of Andrus Peat and James Hurst and the development of Trevor Penning, it would make sense for New Orleans to invest in linemen this offseason.

Jon Feliciano has been in the NFL since 2015, spending time with the Raiders, Buffalo Bills, New York Giants, and 49ers. This past season, he played in 16 games for San Francisco and started seven games. He had an 85.4 PFF run-blocking grade for the year, which was fourth-highest among guards. That level of run blocking could go a long way for the Saints.
