2020 NFL free agency: Three biggest needs for each NFC team

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Kiko (probably gone/injury settlement) is coming off a serious ACL injury and AJ Klein is a FA, I'd add linebacker as a "need" for 2020. One can also argue that GUARD is an area of need. New Orleans Saints: Wide ...

2020 NFL free agency: Three biggest needs for each NFC team

Kiko (probably gone/injury settlement) is coming off a serious ACL injury and AJ Klein is a FA, I'd add linebacker as a "need" for 2020. One can also argue that GUARD is an area of need.


New Orleans Saints: Wide receiver, cornerback, quarterback

Projected cap space: $9.3 million.

Michael Thomas is myriad kinds of amazing. Spectacular as he is, he's been a one-man band in the Saints' receiving corps. Setting a single-season receptions record is historic, but it's not necessarily the greatest thing when one considers Thomas' 149 catches were 68 more than anyone else on the team (running back Alvin Kamara was second with 81) and a staggeringly ridiculous 119 more than the next wide receiver (Ted Ginn with 30). The team is long overdue to add a legit No. 2 receiver. At cornerback, Eli Apple -- a plus against the run and often times a liability in coverage -- could move on via free agency, while Marshon Lattimore's inconsistency is emblematic of the cornerbacks collectively. The big question is what will happen with the expensive contract of Janoris Jenkins (he's set to carry a cap number of $11.25 million in 2020) and whether he's a fit for the future. Drew Brees is coming back -- check. But even after Brees' next contract is worked out, there's the question of what will happen with backup Teddy Bridgewater, who is headed for free agency after a perfect stint as a starter last year with Brees on the mend from a thumb injury, and Swiss Army knife/hopeful full-time quarterback Taysom Hill, who is set to become a restricted free agent. Pending how those situations play out, the Saints might well need to think about somebody else as Brees' eventual successor.
