I don’t believe this is a huge need for New Orleans. But, for 1. Kenny Stills has familiarity with the Saints (played there for two years) and 2. We’ve seen the Saints push hard for Clowney and recently acquire Kwon Alexander. It’s safe to say the Saints are in win Super Bowl for Drew Brees now mode.
Kenny Stills could join a juggernut team, where he already knows the situation. It wouldn’t be a distraction, or a WR needing targets galore, with Stills.
The Saints have looked worn down in past playoff appearances. Getting Stills going in a corps with Thomas and Sanders may be the 1-2 big plays needed to get over the hump.
