Why the Saints should sign WR Demarcus Robinson

Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

With the arrival of wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, the New Orleans Saints are now in great shape when it comes to the position. However, that should not put them off against pursuing someone like Demarcus Robinson.

Michael Thomas is arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL right now. Last season, he led the league in both receptions and receiving yards, and had nine touchdowns as well. There is no doubt that he will once again be Drew Brees' favorite target come next season.

And in Emmanuel Sanders, the Saints now have a man who has appeared in a Super Bowl with three different teams. He might not be the player that he once was, but even at 33 years of age, he remains a solid option across from Thomas.

The goal for New Orleans next season will clearly be making the Super Bowl. They have won over 10 games in each of the last three seasons, topping the NFC South three straight times only to fall short in the postseason. The addition of someone like Demarcus Robinson could help them go that extra mile.

It is surprising that not a single team has scooped him up yet. Despite being the fourth choice for the Kansas City Chiefs, he put up solid numbers last season when he hauled in 32 receptions for 449 receiving yards with four touchdowns and averaged an impressive 14 yards per reception. New Orleans would be lucky to draft a wide receiver with that kind of productivity.

At just 25 years of age, he has youth on his side as well while also not burning a hole in the Saints' cap space either.

Robinson as the third option would be a dream for Brees and a nightmare for oppositions around the league.
