The New Orleans Saints are expected to sign former New York Jets DT Nathan Shepherd, per ESPN’s Dianna Russini.

The Saints have started the process of revamping their defensive line. Shepherd is a five-year veteran with 73 games played. In his career he has 33 QB hits. He finished last year with a PFF grade of 68.9. Shepherd also had his best season as a run defender. He’s not exactly the guy to change this defensive line, but he is a solid depth piece, nonetheless.
