The New Orleans Saints had very few bright spots on defense last year. Between poor play and injuries, the defensive side of the ball kept the Saints from winning too many games. But that doesn't mean it was all bad. There were some players that shined, even though the unit didn't. One of those players is now a free agent, but the team is looking to bring him back for next year, at least according to the Louisiana Radio Network:

"The New Orleans Advocate says there’s mutual interest for defensive tackle Nick Fairley to return to the Saints. Fairley signed a one-year deal with New Orleans last year and played well in 2016 and recorded 6.5 sacks. Fairley would likely seek a multi-year contract that could pay him around 10-million dollars a year."
