The New Orleans Saints have made their first big move of free agency, agreeing to a deal that will keep defensive tackle David Onyemata in New Orleans, a source confirmed to ESPN. Onyemata, 27, has been a big reason for the resurgence of New Orleans' run defense, which led the NFL over a two-year span from 2018 to 2019, allowing just 85.8 rushing yards per game. But he also has enough athleticism for his size to aid in the pass rush, compiling 9.5 sacks over the past three seasons.

Re: David O signs!

Might open the door for a ranking trade or release. It would save us 7 million

I hope not. Rankins is still the better player between the two by far. David O is ascending and I'm glad that we have him but let's not move Rankins please. He gets hurt sometimes but the man is a monster in the middle.

I agree HOWEVER this is season 3 where he's had a season ending injury.

That's killing us in late January.
