The New Orleans Saints have taken a step back from crime to help James Winston.
For his second year as an early quarterback, he received a pair of top receivers for offense.
New Orleans already had Michael Thomas, their 1,000+ yard receiver.
Now they have experienced receiver Jarvis Laundry to help Winston in 2022.

The move now gives the quarterback two proven 1,000+ yards a season receiver as the target this season.
As the season begins, it will put pressure on the Tampa Bay Buccaneer defense.
The move to sign the New Orleans laundry is great, but it’s something special for him.
Landry is a Louisiana product from birth
The Saints new receiver is a Louisiana home-made product.
He was born in Convent Louisiana and is now back in his home state playing for his home team.
However, his football career began in Louisiana.
He made his debut in high school football for Luther High School.
From there he studied at Louisiana State University.
While at LSU, Laundry made a name for himself with the NFL Scouts.
While there, he was one of the most productive receivers for LSU.
He finished his time there with 137 catches at 1,809 yards and 15 touchdowns.

These things led him to be drafted in the second round by the Miami Dolphins.
Landry now gets to play for his hometown team
Most NFL players don’t get to play for their hometowns.
Tom Brady and Aaron Rogers are both California products, yet the San Francisco 49ers could not play.
However, Laundry now gets an opportunity that those two MVP players never got.
But now he’s playing for his hometown team, which means he’s under pressure to perform.
He has a quarterback who is known for having plenty of passing yards every season.
However, that same quarterback also had a history of many setbacks.
So if Winston goes back to his old ways it can be hard for him to perform.
But if Winston continues to play like last season, the laundry should be produced in New Orleans.
Can laundry give New Orleans the edge it needs to play off?
The most important thing for New Orleans and their fan base is to make the playoffs.
Everyone is interested to see if he can help the team reach the 2022 playoffs.
If you test his last two seasons with the Cleveland Browns, you may not have much hope for his help.
2021 saw him with 52 receptions and just two touchdowns for 570 yards.
In his previous season he was met with 72 receptions for 840 yards and three touchdowns.
However, he has played through injuries in his last two seasons, which has resulted in some downward production from him.
But he missed just two matches in 2020.
If he doesn’t recover from his injury, he won’t be able to help in New Orleans.
However, if he returns to 100%, he could help improve the New Orleans offense in 2022 in need of a playmaker.
The Saints will play the first game of the season to see if he is that playmaker.
