David Onyemata and Shy Tuttle

The Saints could very well lose three of their four starting defensive linemen this offseason. We already discussed Marcus Davenport and how New Orleans is probably going to lose him in the spring (and that might not end up being such a bad thing).

It'd be nice if the Saints could keep Onyemata or Tuttle (or even both) but with how poorly the run defense has performed this season, perhaps the team could opt to tear it down and start from scratch.

Onyemata is projected to earn a two-year salary worth $15 million, which is doable for the Saints if they want to re-sign him. Tuttle's market value is set at two years $12 million, which is also manageable.

If these two were interested in returning, the Saints should re-sign them.

Bradley Roby

The former Broncos cornerback has been a nice addition to the Saints secondary and I'd be all for NOLA trying to keep him in the black and gold if he's interested. Roby was banged up in the recent loss to the Cardinals but when he's been on the field, he's been decent.

With the lack of decent cornerbacks out there, the Saints should try to keep Roby in the Big Easy if at all possible.
