That means the Saints need to assess the nature of their 2018 roster and figure out its biggest needs for 2019. Let’s address what I think are the top 4 biggest needs for the Saints to address in either the 2019 NFL Draft or via free agency. Now this won’t include extending players currently under contract, it doesn’t consider the absence of players who are exclusive or restricted free agents, and it doesn’t consider - for now - the holes created by possible trades, cuts, or restructures. But with that out of the way, here are what I consider the most important positions for the Saints to address this offseason:Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY SportsTight EndThis should come as no surprising. With Benjamin Watson retiring after the 2018 season, that leaves Josh Hill, Garrett Griffin - who has only one career reception White Michael Thomas Jersey , and UDFA Dan Arnold.There had been initial hopes that the Saints would be able to get Jimmy Graham if the Packers released him, but it doesn’t look like that will be the case.Jimmy Graham or otherwise, the Saints will have to look at either free agents or a deep draft class to bring something more to the group. When Josh Hill is the best pass-catching tight end of the group, there’s a problem.Chuck Cook-USA TODAY SportsQuarterbackDrew Brees doesn’t have much left to give in the NFL. He knows it, the Saints know it, the fans know it, and the NFL world knows it.It is more likely than not that 2019 is the swan song for Drew Brees. The Saints will need to do something to address the quarterback position for 2020 and beyond. Maybe the answer is Teddy Bridgewater and Teddy decides to stick around in New Orleans on the bench for another season. Maybe the Saints attempt to address it in the draft, but it’s going to be difficult considering the Saints don’t have a first round pick.We’ll see what happens Michael Thomas Jersey 2019 , but honestly, it wouldn’t be a shock to see the Saints ignore this need much like they did last offseason.Bob Donnan-USA TODAY SportsWide ReceiverTo end the 2018 season, the Saints had Michael Thomas at wide receiver, and not really anything else. Ted Ginn missed a big chunk of the year, and like Drew Brees, he isn’t getting any younger. Cameron Meredith missed the majority of his season after never fully recovering from his knee injury. Rookie Tre’Quan Smith was inconsistent all year to say the least. Dez Bryant was signed to a one year deal, but never saw the field. Undrafted free agents Keith Kirkwood and Austin Carr struggled to get separation from NFL-caliber corners.The Saints could opt to rely on Cameron Meredith, previously signed to a two-year deal New Orleans Saints Eli Apple Jersey , but his return from injury is still questionable at best. The Saints could opt to re-sign Dez Bryant, who seemed to immediately latch on with the team and fans with news of his signing. The Saints could instead (or in addition) address the position in the draft. In any event, they need to do something.Chuck Cook-USA TODAY SportsOffensive LineLike Drew Brees, Max Unger at Center is not getting any younger. Jermon Bushrod is likely to retire at the end of the season. Andrus Peat struggled at times (that is putting it likely) near the end of the season - although his broken hand could have been a primary culprit. Terron Armstead, as great as he is, has failed to play a full 16-game season in his entire professional career.The Saints have young options like Will Clapp out of LSU, but it would be nice to continue to bring in depth via the draft to keep the Saints offensive line one of the better in the league, both in 2019 and beyond. If anyone saw a cellphone under one of the goalposts at the Ravens’ practice facility on Saturday Womens Eli Apple 2019 Jersey , there was a good reason for that.Joe Horn Jr., the son of former NFL receiver Joe Horn, is participating in Baltimore’s rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.“Joe Horn Jr. looked really good,” coach John Harbaugh said after Saturday’s practice, via Jamison Hensley of “I guess the thing that struck me about him was he looked like Joe Horn.”Joe Horn Jr. didn’t perform like Joe Horn while at Missouri Western. Horn Jr. caught only 15 passes for 246 yards and no touchdowns in the Division II program last season.“His son looks like him — quick, fast, really good hands, in and out of breaks Archie Manning Jersey Stitched ,” Harbaugh said. “You can tell he’s worked with his dad a lot on technique. I just thought he looked excellent.”Looking excellent and getting a job are two different things. Horn Jr. has yet to be signed to the 90-man offseason roster.Joe Horn Sr. was a solid player during an 11-year career, generating 603 catches for 8,744 yards and 58 touchdowns. He’s perhaps best known for retrieving a phone from under the goal post during a game in 2003, a move that was reprised last season by Saints receiver Michael Thomas.
