Saints 2016 Year in Review: Jairus Byrd

In his third season in New Orleans, Jairus Byrd continued to play a similar role in the Saints defense. With his predecessor Malcolm Jenkins attaining the success that he is in Philadelphia, many Saints fans have been putting Byrd under more pressure than ever. However, the issue seems to be lying in a scheme fit more than Byrd himself, and the free safety started to find a groove at the end of the 2016 season.

Saints 2016 Year in Review: Coby Fleener

The Saints raised quite a few eyebrows during the 2016 offseason when, instead of targeting defense with their free agency, their splash signing was former Colts’ tight end Coby Fleener. Fleener signed a deal to the tune of five years, $36 million, in an uncharacteristically (for Loomis) balanced contract. Fleener finished the season with 50 receptions for 631 yards, but his season had a bell curve feel to it.

Saints 2016 Year in Review: Brandin Cooks continues his upward trend

Since being drafted in 2014, Brandin Cooks has been a favorite target of Drew Brees. The speedy Oregon State graduate has big play ability, and he can also be used as a possession receiver due to his durability. For the second year in a row, Cooks posted some higher receiver yardage numbers than the year prior.
