Saints add one, waive two and place one on IR
The New Orleans Saints have officially signed a few veterans after practice today. Most recently signing veteran guard J.R. Sweezy. He started 10 games for the Arizona Cardinals last season, in 2019 he started all 16 games at right guard for them. After losing veteran guard Nick Easton this offseason, Sweezy could fill that void. He was working with the second team at LG today.
