Saints vs. Buccaneers: Which New Orleans Saint would you add to Tampa Bay?

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Spor

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the New Orleans Saints on Sunday -- so which player would you steal if you had the opportunity?

We're making this a regular feature on Bucs Nation: which opposing player would you like to see play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? This week, we take a look at the New Orleans Saints and their ridiculous offense. Which player would you add?

The obvious answer here is Drew Brees, because who wouldn't to add him to his team? So, let's skip that answer. It's too easy and not nearly interesting enough. There are plenty of other great options, though.

Tight End Jimmy Graham

Graham is arguably the best pass-catching tight end in the NFL. A former basketball player, he's fast, a pretty good route runner and, above all, ridiculously good at snatching passes out of the air even when he appears to be covered. Throw it up there, and he's more than likely to catch it.

Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are stuck with Luke Stocker and an injured Tom Crabtree. Graham isn't a great blocker, though he's not useless there either, but he would be a massive improvement in the passing game and would certainly help Freeman this year.

Defensive End Cameron Jordan

Remember the great debate of the 2011 NFL Draft over which defensive end the Tampa Bay Buccaneers should pick? I was on the Cameron Jordan bandwagon at the time, which may have been a mistake given the fact that Adrian Clayborn has turned into a pretty good player. But Jordan is no slouch himself, and could start for the Buccaneers.

Most intriguingly, Jordan's best position is as a 4-3 base defensive end, the position vacated by Michael Bennett and now taken up with very limited success by Daniel Te'o-Nesheim. Although I think Da'Quan Bowers should start at the position over Te'o-Nesheim, Jordan would likely be an improvement over Bowers at this point. He notched 8 sacks last season on an awful defense, which would have been second for the Bucs.

Wide Receiver Marques Colston

The Buccaneers lack a good slot receiver, and Colston is one great receiver. People tend to forget that there was some doubt as to whether he'd be a tight end or wide receiver in his rookie season, which allowed a lot of fantasy players to rack up ridiculous points at the tight end position with a wide receiver.

Colston has had multiple knee injuries, which is an issue, but he's a great weapon as an inside receiver. The Saints use him frequently to get matchups on linebackers and safeties, or to attack the middle of the field - the exact area where the Bucs seem incapable of doing any damage whatsoever.
