The New Orleans Saints have an abundance of quarterbacks on their roster to replace Drew Brees, but questions remain if they have ample wide receivers for the new starter to target.

New Orleans has a plethora of young wide receivers sitting beneath Michael Thomas on the depth chart, but none of them are as proven as Emmanuel Sanders, who left for the Buffalo Bills in free agency.

Sean Payton’s side did not draft a wide receiver in the 2021 NFL draft until the seventh round. That leaves open the possibility for the Saints to go after an experienced wideout in free agency.

Even though the team addressed its defensive needs with its first three draft picks, it could afford to dip into the defensive market if the right fit emerges.

Don’t let anyone tell you another team has a better social media squad than the New Orleans Saints. Everyone has been working overtime to find a way to stand out, but the Saints may have taken the cake in unveiling their 2021 schedule for the regular season.

Between Cameron Jordan chewing up the scenery while acting the part of an ace code-breaking detective and the many 28-3 references taken at the Atlanta Falcons’ expense, it’s well worth taking two minutes of your time to see how the Saints introduce every opponent lined up for them to knock down.

The New Orleans Saints have averaged 12 wins per season over the past four seasons, winning the NFC South title in each of those years. Can they repeat that success this season, despite no longer having Drew Brees on the roster?

That remains to be seen. It helps though that the schedule includes games against the NFC East (football's worst division last season) and the AFC East. And the front of the schedule, minus the season opener, is friendly enough that the team could get some early momentum while breaking in a new starting quarterback.
