Summary

The Saints traded for Eli Apple midway through last season to bolster their cornerback depth - and it proved to be a wise move. Apple, a malcontent in New York with the Giants, took to New Orleans' scheme quickly and impressed. Playing opposite Marshon Lattimore meant he saw plenty of targets come his way, with his solo tackle count (62) reflecting that. Apple's fifth-year option was not picked up by the team, but for this season he is a good option as a CB2, with CB1 upside. (May 12)
