New Orleans Saints’ top offseason needs New Orleans Saints’ top offseason needs Advocate file photo by MATTHEW HINTON -- Saints defensive end Akiem Hicks celebrates his sack of Eagles quarterback Nick Foles in the playoffs last season. BY SHELDON MICKLES| firstname.lastname@example.org Feb. 01, 2014 Comments CORNERBACK While newcomer Keenan Lewis had a solid season, starter Jabari Greer and backup Patrick Robinson both suffered major knee injuries and might not be ready for the start of OTAs in May. Corey White struggled at times, so more help is needed. TACKLE Terron Armstead may be the future at left tackle, but Zach Strief and Charles Brown are both unrestricted free agents. There is not much else to choose from, so the Saints may have to address this area — likely in free agency, especially if Strief leaves. OUTSIDE LINEBACKER The Saints hope to get a healthy Victor Butler back from a torn ACL that sidelined him for the entire season, and Junior Galette returns after piling up 12 sacks, but they could use a little more depth here with Will Smith a big question mark. WIDE RECEIVER With Marques Colston and Lance Moore getting up in years with big contracts, the Saints may be looking to add another piece to the puzzle. Rookie Kenny Stills was a big contributor, so finding a big receiver in the draft would certainly help. DEFENSIVE END The Saints are certainly happy with starters Cameron Jordan and Akiem Hicks, who fit nicely into their new 3-4, but they could use another quality pass rusher to throw into the rotation to give them a break every now and then.
