When the Saints drafted a quarterback last month, they were looking to make a splash on the free agent market.
The Saints have three quarterbacks under contract for the next two seasons.
Quarterback Drew Brees is a free agent in 2019, and the team could potentially look to trade him or sign him to a contract extension, though the timing is uncertain.
Brees has been a key part of the Saints’ offense in the past two seasons, as he threw for 1,848 yards and 13 touchdowns with 11 interceptions in 2013 and 2014.
His three seasons of quarterbacking have helped lead the Saints to an 8-5 record and a first-round bye in the playoffs.
Brees is also the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards and touchdown passes.
The Saints also have a trio of wide receivers who are under contract this offseason.
First-round pick Kenny Stills is a restricted free agent, while veteran Michael Thomas signed a four-year deal with the Saints in the offseason.
Thomas caught a career-high eight passes for 108 yards and two touchdowns in his final season in New Orleans in 2016.
In 2017, Thomas was a three-time Pro Bowl selection.
He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2017, but the Saints traded him to New England in 2018 for cornerback Marshon Lattimore.
Thomas has never been a Pro Bowler, but he played in the NFL from 2004 to 2018.
He is the only player to reach the 1,000-yard rushing mark in each of the last three seasons.
Thomas has been active for the Saints and played in at least 10 games in each year.
He also played for the Ravens in the Super Bowl in 2015.
The New Orleans Saints have won five Super Bowls, but have never won the Super Bowler.
