5. Marshon Lattimore, CB

Could the Saints really part ways with Mike Evans' kryptonite? The former first-round pick has been a solid player for the Saints since coming out of Ohio State back in 2017. During a few of his seasons, Marshon Lattimore has easily been considered a top-10 cornerback in the league.

This past season wasn't his best, but it wasn't his worst. He allowed 57.4 percent completion to opposing quarterbacks and gave up a rating of just 74.7. Allowing just one touchdown on the season, Lattimore was far from someone the Saints would want to move on from. However, it might come down to a decision that the Saints simply have to make.

Lattimore's contract was restructured in a way that if an option isn't exercised this year, the Saints' dead cap money would be reduced by $11 million. Interestingly enough, that option would kick in about a week before the regular season began.

With the Saints being in such a difficult spot, cap-wise, money is going to be at the forefront of most decisions. They are going to have to make some serious cuts or trades, and Lattimore seems to be a likely candidate to be in that conversation.
