Trai Turner can move for a big man. If Saints wants to get that screen going again, he’d be a solid addition. Check him pancaking Tremaine Edmunds here pic.twitter.com/yTVjRTGA3N— Joe Horns Cell Phone (@JoeHornsPhone) July 24, 2023
Turner is great depth but also adds starting experience to a position that always seems to have injury concerns. Turner started 12 games last season for the Commanders and most likely will have to take a back seat role with the emergence of Cesar Ruiz and once and awhile steadiness from Andrus Peat.
A homecoming for Trai Turner as he plays football where it all started. Turner was a 3rd round pick from the Carolina Panthers out of LSU. Turner was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and played his high school ball at the legendary St. Augustine High School.
