On the very same day the New Orleans Saints welcomed their new franchise quarterback Derek Carr to the city of New Orleans, the team immediately made sure to retain one of his top weapons for the upcoming season.

The Saints have officially agreed to terms on a 2-year deal with restricted free agent tight end Juwan Johnson, keeping him in New Orleans through 2024.

The young rising star will look to continue his growth and development from what was an excellent season this past year. With a Pro Bowl quarterback at the helm, look for Johnson to make huge strides in 2023 and possibly enter his name into the elite category at the tight end position.
