The New Orleans Saints are going to get some big help on defense

David Onyemata is back from a six-game suspension

While it is true that one of the strengths demonstrated during this season in the New Orleans Saints is the defense, the team is preparing to increase its level in the department, which could result in a simply impenetrable barrier for the teams that have to face them in the coming games. It appears to be a move to strengthen the odds of winning against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next Sunday.

By the time this interesting and highly anticipated matchup arrives, the Saints will take the field with defensive tackle David Onyemata at their disposal. The player had been suspended for the first six games of the season for violating the NFL’s substance policy; however, the suspension has come to an end, and the team’s defense couldn’t be more excited to have him back.

During last season, Onyemata’s performance was enough to prove that he is a valuable piece of the team’s defense, racking up 44 total tackles, 10 tackles for loss, 6.5 catches and an interception. During an interview earlier this week, Saints head coach Sean Payton discussed Onyemata’s status for Week 8. He said the player’s physical condition is great and that he and the team are looking forward to seeing him back in action. The Saints’ defensive tackle has not had a big impact so far this season, which makes Onyemata’s return more than expected.

The player’s reinstatement comes at the right time as if the Saints can beat the Bucs on Sunday, their chances of contending for an NFC South title this season would be sky-high. A loss, however, would make for a tough situation for the team to overcome.
