Dennis Allen and the New Orleans Saints were supposed to have Tom Brady’s number. Yet, in 2022 with the division wide open, they went 0-2 against Tom and Tampa and cost themselves a home playoff game. Though there’s little chance that hosting a playoff game as an 8-9 team with Andy Dalton in 2023 would have worked out all that well.
The Saints are still looking for a Drew Brees replacement and their latest target seems to be Derek Carr. Though it could be hard to fit a contract under the salary cap after years of kicking the can down the road. If anyone can figure it out it’s Mickey Loomis because I’m pretty sure he has a beach house in salary cap hell. There is nobody else in the NFL that loves it more.
The odds are out for Super Bowl 58 and the Saints are the favorites to come out of the worst division in football, but do they have a shot to win it all?
Super Bowl 58 odds
Saints go all-in... again.
The New Orleans Saints went 7-10 in the worst division in football with Andy Dalton as their quarterback while living in cap hell. Now, they’re sending the No. 10 pick in the draft to the Eagles from the Chris Olave trade last draft. They’re in need of a rebuild after the Drew Brees and Sean Payton era came to an end, and they haven’t been a real Super Bowl contender in a few years, but don’t tell Mickey Loomis that. The Saints tried to swing a trade for Derek Carr has since been released and Loomis is ready to go all-in again.
Despite all of the problems with their roster, if the Saints somehow fit a Derek Carr contract under the cap or add another quarterback this offseason then they have a good chance to win the terrible NFC South. They currently hold the best Super Bowl odds of anyone in the division with all of the elite quarterbacks seemingly in the AFC.
If you are a believer that the Saints can navigate the salary cap once again and land a quality quarterback, the division is easy enough for the team to make the postseason. If you are interested in backing the Saints, get in on these sportsbook promos below!
