The New Orleans Saints barely missed the 2021 NFL playoffs with a 9-8 record.
However, their winning numbers are impressive because they average the league’s worst 187.4 passing yards per game.
With all-pro wideout Michael Thomas sidelined due to injury, quarterback James Winston Marquez had Calaway, Dionte Harty and Alvin Camara as his top receivers.
But optimism about the Saints’ 2022 campaign skyrocketed after they increased their receiving corps.
Thomas will eventually recover and Rocky Chris Olav has the ability to overtake defenders.
Similarly, signing a one-year contract with the Saints could revive Jarvis Laundry’s career.
For that reason, the Saints have no reservations about sharing with insider Nick Underhill that they would be a problem.
Jarvis Laundry Mike Thomas, Chris Olav and himself on the depth chart: “We are all a problem”

There are two sides to the potential problem.
If everything goes according to plan, taking the corps of saints would be a nightmare for the opposition defense.
In addition to having their hands full on Thomas, the defensive back should also have a body on a pro bowl receiver in the laundry and a promising talent in Olave.
On the other hand, if Thomas is not 100 percent healthy, New Orleans may have problems and Olav does not live up to the hype.
Landry will also have to come back from his declining production in the last three seasons.
Will the laundry get back to its old form?
In 2019, the former LSU standout had 1,174 receiving yards and six touchdowns with the Cleveland Browns.
Unfortunately, its total number dropped from 840 in 2020 to 570 in 2021.
He has had five combined touchdown catches in the last two seasons.
Laundry missed five matches on his last duty tour with the Browns due to a sprained knee.
Sadly, the team released him last March and had to wait to sign a contract.
Joining the saints will be his chance to prove that he can still deliver on the field.
If he does, he will get another multi-year contract.
