Saints to sign Guard Trai Turner to a one-year deal, per report

Saints adding LSU depth in the trenches.

NFL: Washington Commanders at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints have signed former LSU guard Trai Turner to a one-year deal per report. Turner is a 5-time pro bowler that adds great depth to the Saints offensive interior.

The nine-year veteran who spent last season with the Washington Commanders also previously played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Los Angeles Rams and started for the Carolina Panthers for 7 seasons.

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.
