What’s on the mind of Who Dat nation? With the departure of Marques Colston this leaves a huge void in the passing game. Colston and Bree’s connected for record breaking numbers through the years. So who can fill those shoes?
Brandon Cooks is and will be our top threat no matter what but who is gunna be our big man? Brandon Coleman has the size and ability to resemble Colston. Willie Snead is also a receiver with that Big Bang impact any second of a game. The tight end postion seems to stay consistent for the most part with Ben Watson at the helms. Josh Hill and Michael Hoomanawanui also have put in some time with both contributing in games with a total of (5) touchdowns between the two. The Saints had the #2 offense in yards -per-game and #8 in scoring offense.
So what really needs to happen to bring this offense back to the good ole days? Some of the top free agents that are looking for new homes are Marvin Jones (CIN), Travis Benjamin (CLE), Ruben Randle (NYG). Other top free agents are Anquan Boldin (SF), Bradon Lafell (NE), Hakeem Nicks (FA), Kenbrell Thompkins (NE). With that being said what is the best thing for the New Orleans Saints at the receiving position?
Do we look into the draft and get someone that may have to work with for a couple years or do they test the free agency and possible get a go to guy that can contribute immediately and help lead a way back to the playoffs. With the defense looking to take up most of the picks, it may just have to come down to a free agent find.
There is plenty of talent on the market so why not test it. With the receiving position being high priority, they may need to find there guy this year and find him fast.
