The New Orleans Saints and one of their 1st round draft picks, OT Trevor Penning have agreed to terms on a 4-year deal worth $14.1 million, fully guaranteed with a 5th year option.
Penning who was drafted 19th by the Saints, played 3 years at Northern Iowa and was a finalist for the Walter Payton Award in 2021. He is expected to compete with James Hurst to fill a hole on the offensive line left by Terron Armstead, who signed with the Miami Dolphins in free agency.

Penning is the Saints first player to sign a contract in this year’s draft class, but we should expect that to change very soon. The Saints have upcoming OTA workouts on May 24th - May 26th, May 31st - June 2nd and June 7th - June 10th.
