According to reports, the New Orleans Saints have reached a decision regarding the future of cornerback Marshon Lattimore. Despite falling short of expectations last season with a 9-8 record and narrowly missing out on the division title and playoffs, the Saints are not actively seeking to trade the 27-year-old Lattimore, a key figure in their defense dating back to the Drew Brees era.

Selected as the No. 11 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, Lattimore has earned Pro Bowl honors four times, showcasing his importance to the team. Although his performance has slightly declined in recent years, partly due to injury, he remains a significant contributor.

Last season, Lattimore played in 10 games, registering eight passes defended, one interception, and 48 tackles (39 solo) before an ankle injury ended his season prematurely in Week 10.

In a notable offseason move, the Saints signed defensive end Chase Young to a one-year contract worth $13 million. Despite criticisms and comparisons to his standout rookie season, Young, who recently turned 25, still possesses considerable potential and could be a valuable addition to the team’s defense.

With the Saints eyeing a potential division win, especially given the circumstances of their rivals, such as the Atlanta Falcons signing 35-year-old quarterback Kirk Cousins recovering from a torn Achilles, Lattimore’s role in the team will be crucial as they strive for success in the upcoming season.
