Saints take Trevor Siemian from Titans’ practice squad

With starting quarterback Drew Brees on injured reserve, the Saints needed another quarterback.

Enter Trevor Siemian.

The Saints have signed Siemian from the Tennessee practice squad, according to Siemian’s agent, Mike McCartney.

A seventh-round pick of the Broncos in 2015, Siemian became the starter after Peyton Manning retired and Brock Osweiler signed with the Texans. After two years, Siemian was traded to the Vikings. He then spent 2019 as a backup with the Jets.

Siemian has 25 career starts, and a record of 13-12. He’ll be the third quarterback, behind Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston.

  1. Fascinating to see how these revered coaches like Sean Payton do with QB’s from off the scrap heap, like Winston & now Siemian.
    Andy Reid actually lived up to his reputation as a “QB Guru”. Eager to see if Payton can also.

  2. Good move. Nobody on the current roster is going to replace Drew Brees, but Siemian could be the best option. Or at least they have a formidable backup if they get another injury at QB

  3. Well why not? Somebody has to take up the slack. Drew is not coming back soon. He is busted up. Busted ribs and lung issues are not cool and they know it.

  4. They should get Mariota and give him a shot, he could do real well with Sean Payton and that offense.

    And that would be crazy, Mariota and Winston on the same QB bench lol.

  5. Well if they are serious about Hill being the future, he will be the only QB on the field.
    But we could see Hill and Winston as “QB by committee”.
    And if Winston fails, Sieman replace him in that role.

  6. This is exactly the kind of situation where Apple needs to give us a “scraping the bottom of the barrel” emoji.

  7. Trevor is likely their most reliable option and HOPE to salvaging their season and any chance of winning in the playoff, or even getting to the playoffs…

  8. Beyond all that QB carousel, I hope that Payton have a plan for Winston. For the simple fact that he is the only one with elite arm talent and him being a very good athlete.
    He is more than a game manager. I see the environment in NO as a good one for Winston to get to the next step. I do believe his eye surgery, plus the fact he lost weight are promising elements for him. Let him start a couple of games, to see where is at now. Once Brees is gone, Winston might be that guy leading the Saints to the playoffs, with a 40 TD pass and 10 INT regular season.

  9. Trevor Siemian had massive potential, and was demonstrating it soundly, until John Elway’s pathological neglect of the O-line let a defender rush in and destroy Siemian’s shoulder in one expletive play. The Broncos are an afterthought until they clarify their ownership mishegas, which might then attract a good GM and then a good HC who know that no cliche in football is more true than this: games are won and lost in the trenches. Siemian’s career was sidetracked entirely due to Elway’s denial and incompetence in addressing QB protection. Here is hoping Trevor’s healed and can stage a comeback!

    Not sure why you think Andy Reid is a QB guru. When he’s not had world class QBs like Favre and Mahomes he’s not done well.

    As for Payton he already took Bridgewater off the “scrap heap” last year and won with him and got him a starting gig in Carolina.

    He did pretty damn good with Donny Mac…. a post prison vick… a rookie named nick foles…and alex smith who had been replaced by a young kaep. So i may be wrong but imvvho Andy Reid has been pretty dang good with coaching up qbs

  13. Excuse me, has anyone in this comment section seen Trevor Siemian play lately? He is not better than anyone.
