The New Orleans Saints need to make roster changes this offseason.
After a disappointing season that saw them finish 7-10, they have many holes on their roster that they must fill.
One of the spots they were looking to address was the defensive line.
They were able to re-sign a key defender to a new contract on Monday.
Tanoh Kpassagnon agreed to a two-year $6 million deal.
It’s a 2-year, $6M deal that includes $2.5M fully guaranteed, source said. Kpassagnon had two sacks last year. https://t.co/WkwjvIbg1S

Kpassagnon has been a solid depth piece for the Saints over the past two seasons.
Last season, he played in 15 games and had 2.0 sacks, six quarterback hits, and three tackles for loss.
The Saints’ defense was one of their strong suits this past season.
They allowed only 20.3 points per game and gave up the fifth least yards in the league per game (314.8).
The Saints need to improve on the offensive side of the ball.
Their quarterback play was not very good last season, as both Andy Dalton and Jameis Winston saw time as the starter.
It will be interesting to see what moves the Saints look to make on that side of the ball.
Playing in a bad NFC South means it would not take much for them to win the division.
But, substantially better quarterback play should suffice.
One free agent we know they are interested in is Derek Carr.
He is free to sign with any team, but he is looking for a lucrative deal.
If the Saints are serious about contending next year, Carr makes a ton of sense.
He would give them the best quarterback in the division, and they would be threats in the NFC.
New Orleans should aggressively improve both sides of the ball this offseason, which will give them the best chance to get back to the postseason.
