Saints place tender on cornerback Ken Crawley

The Saints are going to make an attempt to keep Ken Crawley around.

The team placed a right-of-first-refusal tender on the cornerback, which would pay him $2.025 million next season if another team does not try to sign him.

The tender allows the Saints to match any offer he receives form another team. New Orleans would not receive any compensation if another team signs Crawley since he was acquired as an undrafted free agent.

Crawley was expected to serve as the starting cornerback last season after a breakout campaign in 2017, but he struggled during the early portion of the season and was replaced by Eli Apple, who was acquired in a trade.

Even if he play for the saints he will be so low under the depth chart that he will not see the field. Possibly, he can show something during preseason that will warrant a trade.

First thing comes to mind here is depth at the position.

Re: Saints place tender on cornerback Ken Crawley

Hopefully the confidence returns for Ken in 2019.

Side note - I think the Saints will draft another corner back in next weeks draft. Still no guarantees he will make the squad.

Safe option to bring back though.

To be continued.

Year before he was pretty good. I think he gets his mojo back

He surely surprised me in 17. I thought he would be one of those undrafted steals we come up with and then the season started.

Re: Saints place tender on cornerback Ken Crawley

Crawley is a penalty magnet. It seemed any time he was on the field last year, a blatant PI call would occur. We have better corners than we did in 2017.
