Saints working out offensive linemen today

We mentioned this morning that the Saints were down to their last healthy offensive linemen last night.

They’re doing things today in search of depth.

According to Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Saints are working out a group of blockers today after finishing with the bare minimum last night against the Panthers.

Included in that group is offensive tackle Nick Becton, who was in camp with them in 2014 and 2015.

When center Max Unger left after suffering a concussion and replacement left tackle Jermon Bushrod was sidelined with a hamstring injury, the Saints used both their active backups (Cameron Tom and Will Clapp). They were already without left tackle Terron Armstead, as they have been the last five games.

The condition of Unger and Bushrod will determine whether they need to make a roster moves, and they’re apparently doing their legwork in advance of that.

  1. There is a team below them in the division that would have been playoff caliber had they been able to find a decent midseason replacement for their OLine. If their fans watch the Saints find one this late in the season…..Oh Boy.

  2. Miami season is going no where, except up to the Bills, so they have some O/L starters who could be back ups for NO. Bill
