New Orleans Saints Roster 2020 New Orleans Saints Roster

12-4, 1st NFC South

vs TB

11:40 pm GMT , 1/17

New Orleans added a few veterans over the offseason with Emmanuel Sanders and Malcolm Jenkins. This will give Drew Brees a WR2 that has been lacking over the past few seasons. The secondary showed some cracks at time last season, so the Jenkins addition is a good one. The draft was a bit lackluster as they drafted a center, but did get a tight end that might pop up on the radar over the next few years. Overall this team is still going to work through Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara and Brees has one or two good years left before they look at getting another arm in there.

FAQ

The Saints have been one of the best teams in the NFL over the past several seasons, having won 11+ games in each of the past three seasons and winning the NFC South in all three years. Drew Brees is one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time and his connection with All-Pro wideout Michael Thomas is unrivaled in the NFL. The Saints are well-supported by the offensive talent in Alvin Kamara, Jared Cook, Taysom Hill, and free-agency addition Emmanuel Sanders. In addition to Sanders, the Saints signed Malcolm Jenkins this offseason who will start at safety alongside Marcus Williams. New Orleans also drafted center/guard Cesar Ruiz out of Michigan and linebacker Zack Baun out of Wisconsin, both of whom could be starters this season. The Saints also boast an incredibly talented defensive corps between Cameron Jordan, Demario Davis, Marshon Lattimore, and Marcus Williams. The team has among the best Super Bowl odds heading into this season.

Who is the Highest Paid Saints Player?

The Saints' highest-paid player heading into the 2020-21 season is Drew Brees who carries a $20.6 million cap hit. He's one of the best quarterbacks of all time and the team's most important player, so he's well-worth that money which makes him the 9th-highest-paid quarterback.

Who Owns the New Orleans Saints?

Sean Payton is entering his fourteenth season as the Saints' head coach and he's one of the best coaches in the NFL. Aside from a handful of 7-9 finishes, he's led the Saints to an above .500 record in each of his thirteen seasons with the team.

How Much Cap Space do the Saints Have?

The Saints currently have just $8.7 million in available salary-cap space, which is the seventh-least in the NFL. The Saints only have one contract with a cap hit of $10+ million, but they still have several veterans signed to sizable contracts and are cap-strung heading into this season.

Is Drew Brees Still Elite?

Who is the Youngest Player on the Saints?

The Saints' youngest player heading into this season is first-round pick Cesar Ruiz, who is 21 years old. Ruiz played college football at Michigan. The offensive line starters may be set, but Ruiz will certainly see playing time at center and guard right away.

Who is the Oldest Player on the Saints?

Drew Brees is currently the oldest player on the Saints at 41 years old and is the second-oldest starting quarterback in the NFL behind Tom Brady. This may be Brees's last season in the NFL with Jameis Winston waiting in the wings.
