Latest Saints News: Just In New Orleans Saints Confirm THE Signing Of Two Top Sensational Superstar Players

Breaking: The New Orleans Saints Sign Two Offensive Linemen as Free Agents
According to rumors, the Saints added two experienced free agents on Monday to further strengthen their offensive line.

The New Orleans Saints are expected to sign veteran offensive linemen Shane Lemieux and Justin Herron on Monday, according to Nick Underhill of neworleans.football.

Lemieux has played four seasons in the NFL and will turn 27 on May 12. As a guard for one of the nation’s most successful offenses, he was a first team all-American in 2019 and a two-time first team Pac 12 selection during his undergraduate career at Oregon.

 

Lemieux was chosen by the New York Giants in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Midway through his first season, he would take over as the starting left tackle, and by the end of 2020, he had made 12 appearances in games with nine starts. With a knee injury, Lemieux was sidelined for the whole 2021 season after just one game.

The injury bug struck Lemieux once more in 2022. He missed all but one game due to a turf toe ailment. Again, Lemieux’s season ended after just four games due to a torn biceps early in the previous campaign.

The Wake Forest product Herron, 28, was selected by the New England Patriots in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. During his first two seasons with the Patriots, he would start ten games and play in 28 games at guard. For the past two years, Herron has been a member of the Las Vegas Raiders. With the Raiders, he has only made seven appearances, making one start.

New Orleans still needs a strong offensive line. The Saints finished bottom in the NFL in terms of average per carry, had poor pass protection for the majority of the season, and only rated 21st in terms of rushing yardage.

Getting LG started Before this year’s draft, James Hurst announced his retirement. Trevor Penning, a left tackle selected in the first round of the 2022 draft, was benched after six games due to subpar performance last year and is still a major doubt. Both G Trai Turner and veteran G/T Andrus Peat, who took Penning’s position, are still unrestricted free agents. Ryan Ramczyk, the starting right tackle, is uncertain about his future and season due to a degenerative knee problem.

Last Thursday, the Saints selected Oregon State offensive lineman Taliese Fuaga with their first-round choice. Additionally, they added former Vikings G/T Olisaemeka Udoh in free agency and Eastern Kentucky OT Josiah Ezirim in the seventh round.
