Brian De La Puente Signs With Bears

Saints starting center leaves the Crescent City for the Windy City. Where does that leave the Saints?

Jonathan Daniel

The New Orleans Saints now have a giant hole to fill on the offensive line as Brian De La Puente leaves his role as starting center to join the Chicago Bears. Here's his message to the fans:

While it is not surprising DLP is leaving to rejoin his former coach Aaron Kromer, it is pretty surprising that he is leaving New Orleans to become a backup center to Roberto Garza and he will reportedly make the league minimum. The Saints may now turn their sights to former center Jonathan Goodwin, who is currently a free agent after not being retained by the 49ers. More intrigue to come during the Saints' offseason.

Thanks go out to Meethos (King of the Peeps) for breaking the news.
