The Saints added roster depth, agreeing to deals with DT Albert Huggins (per agent Casey Muir), FB Sutton Smith (per source) and WR Easop Winston (per NFL Network). Huggins, undrafted out of Clemson in 2019, has appeared in 5 games with the Eagles and Lions. Smith, drafted by the Steelers as a LB out of Northern Illinois in the 2019 6th round, has not played in a NFL game and recently switched positions. Winston was in camp with the Rams last year after going undrafted out of Washington State.

The Saints' trade up with Denver in the third round is more expensive than the last few trades. The value of the picks the Broncos received are worth 50% more than what it gave up, according to ESPN's draft pick valuations. Denver gained the equivalent of a late fourth-round pick in value.

The Saints exercised their fifth-year option on DE Marcus Davenport, which comes with a guaranteed salary of $9.55 million in 2022. Davenport has shown glimpses of his lofty potential with 12 sacks in three seasons. But largely due to injuries, he has not yet consistently delivered on the huge investment New Orleans made in him by trading up to the 14th pick in the 2018 draft. The Saints need a breakout season more than ever in 2020 after letting DE Trey Hendrickson go in free agency.

The Saints will distribute more than $300,000 to local and national organizations as part of the #SayHerName campaign that players started last year to address the plight of Black women in America. That includes contributions from players and the team as part of the NFL's Club Social Justice Matching Fund Program. The campaign, which was led by all of the team's veteran leaders, also included weekly roundtable discussions with players and guest speakers that were highlighted during home games.

Some things Drew Brees has already checked off of his retirement "bucket list": more time with the family, mountain biking — and skiing for the first time in 25 years since it wasn't worth the risk when he was playing.
