3 Free Agents the Saints Can Sign With Limited Cap Space
By Max Staley
The New Orleans Saints figure to be legitimate Super Bowl contenders once again in 2020. But with Drew Brees entering his age-41 season, this team's championship window could be closing soon.
And with the fifth-least available cap space, the Saints don't have a lot of room to capitalize on that closing window either. So with that in mind, here are three low-cost free agents the team should target this offseason.
1. Devin Funchess, WR
Devin Funchess signed a one-year, $10 million deal with the Indianapolis Colts this past offseason. After suiting up for just one game, though, it's safe to say he'll be looking for a new team this offseason. That down season could make him cheap enough for the Saints to acquire, though. And as strange as it seems to be recommending WR help to a team that boasts the best wideout in the NFL, Michael Thomas was the Saints' only WR that had more than 450 receiving yards last season.
2. Tramon Williams, CB
Tramon Williams is a free agent entering his age-37 season. Given his advanced age, it's hard to imagine him getting too big of a contract. But he's still playing at a really high level. Last season, he was targeted 57 times in coverage, holding opposing passers to just a 79.3 passer rating on those throws. He could be an excellent addition to this secondary, especially at a relatively lower price.
3. Wesley Woodyard, LB
The Saints could use some added depth at linebacker. Wesley Woodyard certainly fits the bill. He's not the player he once was, but he still got a 72.4 grade as a run defender last season from Pro Football Focus. He's not exactly a three-down linebacker anymore, but he could help this team in a rotational role.
