We should anticipate some movement from the Saints in the 2021 NFL draft. Sean Payton was hired as the team’s head coach back in 2006, and he’s used his position at the top of the war room to coordinate trades up the board in every draft he’s conducted since 2007 (though the team didn’t make any moves when he was suspended for 2012). In 2020, the Saints made trades to acquire three of the four players they picked: linebacker Zack Baun, tight end Adam Trautman, and quarterback Tommy Stevens.
The Saints reached an agreement with former Tulane and Oklahoma State WR Jalen McCleskey, who spent 2020 training camp with the Falcons.
NFL ownership is considering a uniforms rule change, which would allow Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas to go back to their college jerseys.
