It appears as if the New Orleans Saints no longer have to worry as much about life without future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees, as Brees’ backup, Teddy Bridgewater, did far more than just hold the line when the former was out with a hand injury for much of 2019’s first half.
With Bridgewater poised to take over for Brees at some point in the not-so-distant future, the Saints can start looking for options to bolster New Orleans’ passing attack, either for Brees or Bridgewater, in 2020.
Wide receiver Michael Thomas continues to be awesome. But he’s the only reliable weapon on the outside.
Meanwhile, a player like Colorado wideout Laviska Shenault Jr. would be an excellent complementary piece.
Sure, Shenault’s route-running abilities need a lot of work. But he has the strength and versatility to give head coach Sean Payton a much-needed asset for future years.
