Yeah I said at the beginning of the offseason that he should be our #1 priority, with Vonn Bell being a close second.

Both have consistently improved each year and are 2 of the most important players on this team, much less Defense. I think they both help set the tone and if we lost them it could change the trajectory of this defense

Probably so due to Rankins' multiple injuries. This is the third season where he has gotten a season-ending injury. It's such a shame b/c he was becoming a dominant 3 tech.
That and I think we have seen peak Rankins while Onyemata is still getting better. Peak Rankins is still good, but the Saints will set a price for him. If someone else offers more, then so be it.

I don’t think Rankins’ ceiling had quite been reached, but the unfortunate injuries set him back. Not sure how he will bounce back, but he’s a good player with some bad luck so far. Not sure we’re able to keep him when the time comes. Onyemata has certainly been trending upward. Availability means a lot.

D-Line when healthy is truly our deepest position on the roster. I feel like we've made good moves all around, and found good depth talent.
