If the Saints could make one more move that would guarantee a Super Bowl. What would it be? We need more pass rush help. The more heat on the QB the better. Everson Griffen would be nice.. How realistic could a trade for Von MIller be? Next years #1 or 2 for Von?

I would love to sign Jadeveon Clowney, but no way that’s happening. Plus I like our pass rush potential just fine from the edge with Cam, Davenport, T-Rex, Granderson, Spence, & maybe even Cumberlander as well. I like our pass rush from the middle with Rankins, Onyemata, Tuttle, Hunt, Edwards, & maybe even Roach. I like our pass rush from the LB spot with Davis, Baun, Anzalone, & Kiko. And I like our pass rush from the DB spot with CGJ, Malcolm, Latt, Jack Rabbit, and PJ

We need a corner more than anything cause I’m not a 100% sure what I’m gonna get from Jack Rabbit for a whole season. I like PJ in the slot, but hope I don’t have to see him on the boundary. The same goes for PRob, but I’m not even sure I want to see him in the slot. We need another boundary corner for Jack Rabbit just in case and the perfect guy out there is Eli Apple since he was our starter most of last year.

I think we are pretty solid across the board. Not a ton to gain by adding a big name. You can always improve but at what cost. For the most part, we'd just be protecting against injury not improving the top end.

So I would go with a more theory approach of adding the best DB we possibly could. It is the group that must see the most snaps. You can be playing 6 at one time and even more rotating so you can always add DBs. Adding a #3 CB can trickle all the way down to making your #6 DB on the field a better player. Having a weak link at DB is the most damaging to your defense.

We have a looot of D-Line depth now with a lot of talented multi-positional DE-DTs. Its crazy how much we loaded with DLinemen that can play inside and end, and can play both End positions.

Sanders made WR less of a need. We have our top 4 WRs secured. Signing another big name WR would make all of the young receivers (Hogan, Calloway, Johnson, Butler, Humphrey) competing for the last 2 spots completely irrelevant. We probably won’t use the 4th and 5th WRs that much outside of 3rd down, run downs and situational deep plays.

I think we need one more LB bad. The starters Baun/Anzalone/Davis now look like one of the best in the league, but the injury proneness in Alonso and Elliss has the LB depth looking like a huge liability. They may be riding high on the UDFA MLB Joe Bachie.

I think we made all of the moves we needed to make in FA and the draft. Now it’s coaching up all the young talent we have and let the best man win a spot in the lineup and roster

Give Taysom more carries and slot receptions. Run the ball a lot more with Taysom to the Super Bowl. Imo we get back to the Super Bowl by increasing Taysom’s touches every way possible, close to the same amount of touches Kamara gets. Taysom’s running and catching is as important to the offense as Kamara and CGM are imo

Signing Malcolm Jenkins back at SS made it easier to switch Gardner-Johnson to CB when necessary so I think we good at CB. CJGJ is a better corner than Eli Apple at this point in their careers, whether it’s outside corner or in the slot

Logan Ryan to address that slot CB position and should Lattimore or Jack Rabbit gets injured. I can't imagine how bad it will be if PJ Williams or P-Rob has to play outside.

Or

Griffen/Clowney

Still think we’re a few pieces from a super bowl, another pass rusher like griffin, I don’t see davenport staying healthy and this has made him inconsistent, I’m not confident in TQS as our #3 or anyone else on the roster so I wouldn’t mind another proven WR and definitely another CB at least.

I just don’t see how clearly a top two roster in the entire league is a few pieces away, but we all are entitled to our own opinions. Would we need a few breaks? Sure! But, every team that’s ever won a SB has needed that

Tyreek Hill would solve all of the offensive issues that have knocked us out of the playoffs three years running. And he could do it without requiring a QB that can throw the ball deep. Just get him the ball in space, and Payton is great at scheming people open. I think having Reek would instantly solve the majority of our offensive problems (that usually surface in the playoffs) in that teams know as long as they mark Kamara, they can sell out and blitz us without any risk of getting burned for big chunk plays. Because as good as Thomas and Cook are, if you vacate the middle of the field, they're not going to break one tackle and score from 60 yards out. We'd have the explosion on offense that we haven't had in 8 years or so.

I'm glad it won't happen because Hill would be really, really hard to root for as a complete garbage can of a human being. But this would be the move that would give us the greatest chance to win another ring this year.

If it's defense give me Stephon Gilmore. He's a takeaway machine and a CB lineup of Latt, Gilmore, and Jenkins is basically shutdown. Ain't no Eli Apple to pick on there.
