Wide Receiver?
Tight End?
Defensive Tackle?
Resigning Mark Ingram?
Other?

The Saints should have been coming off a season where they were playing for the Lombardi trophy. We all know that. Unfortunately, we also know why it didn't happen. Going forward though what is the most important offseason move that you guys feel will keep the Saints Super Bowl window open?

As far as DT. The thing I question is just how many resources should be prioritized if they only miss a few games. Once they are both playing, the position will be in good shape. I'm wondering if resigning Davison and signing a journeyman 3-tech might be best, just to stop-gap it for a few games.

Same need as it is every year. In this league, to run the ball and pass the ball, you need the offensive line you can get, and you need the best offense linemen you can get. It doesn't matter who you send down field if your QB gets hit when throws the ball.

Fewer "bought and paid for " refs.
Or maybe we can "draft" a few of our own? Who Dat Booster Club! NAH, feel dirty now, time to go shower.

Serious note, DT is #1. Someone nasty inside to help collapse the pocket, in FA maybe.
I feel like someone will turn it on from our practice squad for the OL. Tom or Clapp maybe?
Then we need to draft another WR or TE, maybe both. We will have some serious depth at WR once everyone comes back healthy. I'm sure Kirkwood and TQS will progress. Dez and Kam come back healed, then maybe we pick up the slot receiver from Dallas, all of a sudden we have some serious depth at receiver.

1a. Athleticism and depth in the secondary

1b. Dependable Second receiving option, preferably a red zone threat

2. Improve the protection around Drew, maybe replace Peat

He had 66 catches, 888 yards and 4 TDs before his injury and subsequent surgery. That's not too shabby. I wouldn't exactly call that a redshirt year. With a year under his belt and if his surgery and rehab goes well, I think he'll be good to go. I guess we'll see though.
I just looked up his stats for 2018 and they are no where close to this. From what I'm looking at he played in 6 games and had 9 catches for 114 yards and 1 TD.

Whoops, those were his numbers for the 2016 season, not sure why I read that into 2018. Regardless, he was hobbled by injury and some have speculated he wasn't 100% before the injury. I think if he's 100% healthy, we'll have a capable wr2. I still think there are other more pressing needs than the WR position, but looking for one in the later rounds or free agency wouldn't be a bad thing imo.

Yep, our starting 5 is awfully good, just struggle to stay healthy. We need to bolster our depth here. Tom and Clapp look like they could be promising young players but we need to bring in some others, not sure if either would ever get to the level of a Warford or Unger....if Armstead could just have one healthy season....ugh....
