How “Complete” Are the Saints as They Enter the 2020 Season?

The Saints once again in 2019 fell short of their goal of a Super Bowl, as they lost in the Wild Card round of the postseason to the Minnesota Vikings at home.

Many fans still think that the Saints are going to take home the NFC South in 2020, but with Tom Brady joining the division along with Rob Gronkowski it’s not a for sure that the Saints are going to just breeze by and win it running away.

With that said, NFL.com today has a piece out about the most “complete” teams in the NFL, and the Saints come in on their list at number four after going 13-3 a season ago.

Here’s what the piece had to say:

4. New Orleans Saints

New Orleans is locked and loaded once again. GM Mickey Loomis had a superb offseason in free agency and the draft. On the open market, the Saints astutely added Emmanuel Sanders, the perfect complement to Michael Thomas, and re-acquired old friend Malcolm Jenkins, who brings valuable experience and leadership to the secondary. In the draft, New Orleans made one of the game’s best offensive lines even better with the addition of Cesar Ruiz, before grabbing a potential steal in third-round linebacker Zack Baun.

Drew Brees still has gas in the tank at age 41, especially when he’s throwing to the best receiver in the game. And a return to health for Alvin Kamara cannot be understated; when he’s right, the Saints back is an electric playmaker running and receiving. In a related vein, the defense should be healthier than it was down the stretch last season. Third-year DE Marcus Davenport could be poised for a breakout campaign.
