The Saints have added an offensive lineman to their roster ahead of Sunday’s opener against the Falcons.

The Giants announced that New Orleans has signed guard Wyatt Davis off of their practice squad. The Saints have not made any announcement regarding the transaction.

Davis, who is the grandson of Hall of Famer Willie Davis, was a 2021 third-round pick by the Vikings and played six games on special teams for Minnesota as a rookie. He was waived as part of the team’s final cuts last month and signed to the Giants’ practice squad after going unclaimed.

The Saints list Tanner Owen and Calvin Throckmorton as their reserve guards, although Owen didn’t practice on Wednesday due to an illness. Tackle Landon Young was also out with a hip injury and center Erik McCoy was a limited participant, so the health situation may have helped lead to the move.

  1. This guy was invisible on the Vikings roster from the day he was drafted. He was always “learning” on a team that was desperate for a right guard his entire tenure. You decide.

  2. I am really surprised by how badly Davis has struggled. He came out of a great program at Ohio State and seems to have all of the physical tools to be a good NFL OG.

  3. Good luck with that. Was reading a Viking insider article how the scouts and coaches were all against drafting Davis, but Spielman went ahead and drafted him anyhow — they called it another “Spielman special”.
