How to save the Saints Step 4: Blitz Blitz Blitz

In seven games this season, the Saints only have 15 sacks. Marcus Davenport, in a contract year, has not shown the progression that was expected and likely should not be resigned at his current projected market value. Davenport has 0.5 sacks on the season, as compared to star defensive end Cam Jordan with 4.5 sacks.

Now that Marshon Lattimore is expected back, New Orleans needs to come up with more exotic blitz schemes to counteract this lack of production. One potential option is to unleash the LSU Honey Badger version of Tyrann Mathieu, who has struggled this season in his traditional safety role but has shown the ability to be an effective safety rusher both in college and earlier in his professional career.
