David Onyemata may perhaps begin the period on suspension. Tyeler Davison could be long gone in no cost agency. But NFL Absolutely free Company 2019 opens on March 13 and a excellent offer might be accessible in Jets defensive tackle Henry Anderson.
The Saints have one defensive tackle who, barring personal injury, will be suiting up for them to open up the 2019 Period. That one player is Taylor Stallworth, an undrafted rookie taken subsequent the 2018 NFL Draft out of South Carolina.
All the things else is up in the air. Very best case state of affairs, Rankins has a fast recovery, Onyemata is not suspended and all the Saints have to do is convey in a rotational player for depth at defensive tackle. Worst case, it is just Stallworth and the Saints are bringing in far more fellas like Tyrunn Walker to at minimum set ample fellas on the area.
