The 2020 New Orleans Saints are jammed packed with talent and appear to be one of the toughest teams, top to bottom, in the NFL. The roster is dripping with star power, with the likes of Drew Brees, Michael Thomas, Cam Jordan and Demario Davis. But, not every player can be in the bright spotlight. Some key contributions come from role players or guys who don’t get the recognition they deserve,
“…losing him was like losing your front door. All of a sudden there are 58 plays on the call sheet and he was involved in a lot of them….”
Those were strong words for a back-up TE since not having your front door makes you feel unsafe and vulnerable. Luckily, the 30-year-old hasn’t missed a game the past 3 years.
On defense, safety Marcus Williams seems to get more criticism than praise from fans. A solid rookie season in 2017 ended with an unfortunate whiff in the playoffs. But, he was able to get past “The Minneapolis Miracle” and has been an important asset in the secondary.
The 23-year old is entering the last year of his rookie deal and should have plenty of teams in pursuit of his ability to create turnovers if the Saints do not extend him an offer.
