Who’s left in FA and what positions do we need the most help at now?

I'm hesitant about the suggestions of moving Jordan to be an interior D-lineman, and I'd much rather see him play the DE spot under Spags, because I think that is where he is most likely to succeed.

Let us not forget that Spags likes to use multiple DEs in his front 4 schemes, and he has in the past even lined up 4 DEs at once, so they need all those DEs to allow him to be creative and have sufficient rotation to keep the guys fresh.

If the Saints would be able to pick DT Derek Wolfe with their 3rd or 4th round pick, it might be all that they need at that spot, and it'll be interesting to see what both King and Miller can show during the off-season training.

They definitely need to pick up at least one CB from the draft, and maybe another UDFA to create some depth and competition at that position.
Jenkins doesn't do "it" for me.....he's always around the ball about the same time Shanle shows up. He's always late with his reads.
Now
Derek Wolfe does interest me.
We should be ok at CB provided everyone stays healthy......
Safety is the lesast of our worries I think.
