That said, yeah, will miss Okafor who showed up and played himself into a great contract, but we now have a former first round pick who can rotate with Cam, Davenport, and Trey-Rex - that's not too shabby...
The Saints went after Ziggy, Robert Quinn and Gerald McKoy this off season in FA. God forbid anything happens to Cam J or Davenport, we are in deep s***.

Saints need a 4th DE & it won't surprise me if we bring in another vet post training camp.

With Granderson out of the mix in 2019, I'd keep an eye on this guy (Porter Gustin) at camp. Came from a big time program, has a non stop motor & similar frame to CG. Looking at his body of work, he sets the edge really well. Health issues is the knock on him though.

Training camp awaits

NCB (2) 21 - Patrick Robinson, 22 - Chauncey Gardner (R4P3, #105), 35 - Marcus Sherels (FA 2019), 39 - Kayvon Webster (FA 2019)

This ^^ ^^^ position hadn't been talked about enough ...

Rez could probably break down better than most here but I believe the slot is an extremely difficult position on D ... guys can go across the field, in & out or even up the field. Not to mention you have to worry about getting rubbed off the line. We'll face some good slot (Cobb, Lockett, Kupp & Sanu twice) WR's in 2019.

PRob & Chauncey Gardner are good problems to have at the nickel spot.

Actually, we never went after McCoy, so either Payton feels good about DT3 as is and/or in the medicals that Rankins will be back with an impact this season...

Only positions Payton has really tried to address, emphasize from a post-training camp/final 53 situation is interior OL, edge defender, and punt returner...

Ok, minus McCoy . My point was I don't think the Saints are completely confident on what we have behind Davenport & Cam J.

Typically you would like 4 DT's (see Philly title team) in the rotation. Right now we have Edwards, Stallworth, Malcolm & maybe a rookie or possibly a proven vet as #4.

I'd be very surprised if we see Rankins before November. I hope the Saints medical team don't have him return but not at anything less than 100%.

Re: 2019 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

This is what Payton should've done more with Reggie Bush, instead of between the tackles...
