The Saints are planning to have an open competition at defensive end opposite Cam Jordan.
"We're trying to find somebody that can hold down that other side opposite Cam," said DC Dennis Allen. "We've got a lot of good candidates, and we'll let the competition play out." Paul Kruger started opposite Jordan in 2016 but his contract wasn't renewed after the season. Alex Okafor, Obum Gwacham and third-round pick Trey Hendrickson are all in the conversation while Hau'oli Kikaha will also be a factor when he recovers from ACL surgery. May 14 - 11:50 AM
