With the 2020 season wrapping up with the Kansas City Chiefs as Super Bowl the New Orleans Saints like most NFL teams are now preparing for the 2020 offseason and will have some holes to fill, as we now begin a look into the offseason here are some free agents to take a look at for each position starting with the wide receivers:
Big Ticket Free Agents:
A.J. Green: Now here is the interesting thing about A.J.Green he’s 31 gonna be 32 by the time the season starts coming off a injury riddled season and did not play a single snap, yet he could be in line for a huge payday depending if the Bengals decide to franchise tag or opt to let him go and plenty of teams like Green Bay and New England would compete for his services, but in this offense if healthy Green would be lethal for this Saints team would be an elite tandem with Michael Thomas his last healthy season was in 2017 with an stat line of 75 receptions 1078 yards and 8 touchdowns.
Amari Cooper: Its very likely Cooper will stay in Dallas but you never know at just 25 years old Cooper is just in the prime of his career and I would love to see him in this Saints offense with over 1180 yards and averaging 15 yards a catch Cooper is one of the most efficient route runners in the NFL and like Green could be out of the Saints price range if he hits the open market
Emmanuel Sanders: Now of all these top tier free agent options this is the one that is most likely to happen (still not even confident it would) Sanders can still turn on the burners and take advantage corners especially with Michael Thomas taking the teams best corner most of the time. Sanders had 66 catches with only 1 drop so if Mickey can find a way to bring this guy to the roster he should.
More Realistic Options
Phillip Dorsett: Things may have not turned out the way Phillip Dorsett expected too with being the former 2016 first round draft pick, however ending up in New England may have been the best thing for him with almost 400 yards receiving 5 touchdowns and averaging 13.7 yards he also became one of Brady’s more reliable targets and kinda rejuvenated his career with the Pats and should be on the Saints top list and he is my personal #1 choice of all the free agents
Demarcus Robinson: Out of all the free agents I believe Robinson is the most intriguing I really do like what he possess as a receiver and at times he looked good playing under Andy Reid and Pat Mahomes averaging 14 yards a catch, I think he could come to New Orleans on a cheap deal and immediately play well in Payton’s offense.
Tajae Sharpe: Tajae Sharpe is what you would call a case of too many wide receivers in one room ordeal, in Tennessee a room with Corey Davis, Adam Humpries, and rookie standout AJ Brown Sharpe fell down the depth chart and lost snaps yet still had 4 touchdowns and a lot of teams would have loved to have a player like Sharpe be their 4th receiver he could easily replace Ted Ginn in this offense can take the top off defenses.
