An in-depth look at Saints Round 3 and Round 4 draft picks in mock NFL Draft. Bill Barnwell of ESPN predicts that the Saints will not make the playoffs in 2021 specifically because he expects Drew Brees to not be with the team. New Atlanta Falcons GM Terry Fontenot looked to bring Khai Harley with him from the Saints when he joined the Falcons, but the Saints are attempting to keep him in New Orleans.
Yesterday I saw a white Jameis Winston in the second half throwing picks like they were going out of style. Or more like a 'Brad Johnson' with a superior defense that made plays… Here’s where I say he’s lucky -- he’s 3-1 in playoff games where he’s had three interceptions or more, NOBODY would have that record… I also saw a Drew Brees in that second half, and an aging quarterback who can’t get the ball to his people… Tom Brady’s career continues to be about defensive stops..
The New Orleans Saints are reportedly "intrigued by a potential re-signing" of veteran quarterback Jameis Winston amid the uncertainty surrounding Drew Brees' future, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Fowler added that "Taysom Hill's $16 million cap hit is a drain if he's not the starter. New Orleans can win with either option, but questions would persist."
