The New Orleans Saints wrapped up their 2022 offseason by continuing to stay "#onbrand" as the saying goes and do what they've done almost every spring the past decade-plus - trade up and make aggressive moves in free agency. This year, general manager Mickey Loomis just made us wait until late April for the fireworks.

If you told me in February the Saints would:

  • Sign Jameis Winston to a team-friendly 2-year contract,
  • Sign Tyrann Mathieu and Marcus Maye to replace Marcus Williams and Malcolm Jenkins,
  • Draft an elite receiver and get a top offensive tackle prospect to replace Terron Armstead,

I'd have been euphoric and wearing a Honey Badger jersey everywhere I went to celebrate the last three months. 

Don't let the weird timing of all the Saints' big offseason moves distract us from the fact they just got a whole lot better.
