Saints add Larry Warford to offensive line

The Saints are adding some strength and size to their offensive line.

Larry Warford, who has started for the Lions since they drafted him four years ago, will sign with the Saints, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

Warford has size and talent, although he never quite lived up to the promise of his rookie year, when he burst onto the scene as a third-round draft pick and was instantly one of the best guards in the NFL. In recent years he’s been more inconsistent.

The move should give Drew Brees a little more comfort in the pocket, and it will mean the Lions, who have already added right tackle Rick Wagner, have more work to do on rebuilding their line.

Warford is the No. 26 player in our Free Agent Hot 100.

    Warford undoubtedly told his agent to not take calls from slick rick speildope from the land of 10,000 trailer park cesspools.

    He was expected to leave the Lions. Not worth the 10-11 mill he’s likely getting to us anyways. Good luck to him

    During his rookie year, he was the steal of the draft. An all conference third rounder… Since then, not so much.

    Oh, I forgot, they are interested in Peko. Oh, the humanity!

    One thing you can say for Loomis is he isn’t shy on pulling the trigger.

    The Saints have always coveted good OGs because with Drew Brees’ height you can’t have guys collapsing the pocket up the middle. This is true to form for them, and makes sense.

    He has been injured just as much as he has played the last couple of years, and his play has regressed which is why the Lions were willing to let him walk and replace him with rookie Joe Dahl. That and the $9 million per season he was asking for, even though he is nowhere near being an elite O-lineman.

    have yet to see the words “vikings,” “add,” and “olineman,” in a sentence today.
