New Orleans Saints found great OL value with Forrest Lamp signing

The New Orleans Saints are used to having one of the best offensive lines in the league but this year, their unit has been marred by injuries. That’s why it was smart of them to sign Forrest Lamp to their practice squad.

Lamp was a second-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft by the Chargers out of Western Kentucky. He didn’t get involved much in his first three seasons with the Bolts due to various injuries but last year played left guard in all 16 regular-season games.

What Lamp provides New Orleans is a player who has experience at left guard and, as Ian Rapoport noted when he broke the news, is still young. Lamp is only 27 years old and there’s no reason to think he can’t live up to the second-round stock he was branded with when the Chargers selected him. ...

With depth thin behind Pro Bowl running back Alvin Kamara, the Saints have brought in another former Pro Bowl talent.

Lamar Miller has been added to the practice squad.

The Saints also signed former Chargers starting offensive lineman Forrest Lamp, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Miller, 30, played in just one game in the NFL last season but New Orleans can use more help in the backfield while Tony Jones, Jr. remains on injured reserve. The former standout with the Houston Texans missed all of 2019 with a torn ACL...

There’s some good news: the New Orleans Saints designated three more players to return from injured reserve on Tuesday, Oct. 19, including two starters on defense. NewOrleans.Football’s Nick Underhill was the first to report the change in status for each player, which was confirmed on the daily update to the NFL transactions wire.

Just because they’ve been designated to return doesn’t mean all three players will suit up for Week 7’s road game with the Seattle Seahawks. They’ve opened a 21-day window in which to practice in team drills and prove they’ve fully recovered before receiving the...

The team designated three key players to return from injured reserve Tuesday in linebacker Kwon Alexander, defensive end Marcus Davenport and receiver Tre'Quan Smith.

Week 7 is an important juncture in any NFL season.

Some teams are hitting their strides while others are developing new identities as adversity forces them to pivot and reframe. For younger players, the game is beginning to slow down. And, teams are reaching bye weekends that allow them to recharge mentally and physically.

Week 7 in this NFL season is important because several teams have an opportunity to reach or stay above the always-important .500 mark, keeping pace with division leaders...

A group workout on Monday led to the New Orleans Saints filling every vacancy on their practice squad by Tuesday afternoon, with NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reporting that the Saints signed former Los Angeles Chargers second-round pick Forrest Lamp.

The big guard out of Western Kentucky didn’t miss a snap with L.A. last season on the left side after playing some right guard earlier in his Chargers career. Here’s what I wrote of him after Monday’s tryout:

Additionally, the Saints added another player from that audition in linebacker Lakiem Williams, who announced his arrival on Twitter...

The New Orleans Saints have signed 27-year-old offensive guard Forrest Lamp to their practice squad, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Lamp was one of several players that New Orleans brought in for a workout on Monday. His signing comes just hours after the Saints added former Pro Bowl RB Lamar Miller to their practice squad.

Lamp was a second-round selection in the 2017 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers out of Western Kentucky. He was the first offensive guard drafted in 2017, coming off the board with the number 38 overall pick.

A torn ACL sustained in the 2017 training...

Offensive lineman Forrest Lamp was among seven free agents the Saints had in town for workouts Monday. They are signing Lamp to the practice squad, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

Lamp, 27, landed on the Bills’ injured reserve list Aug. 23 with a calf injury that kept him out most of training. The team reached an injury settlement with him three days later, and he has remained a free agent since.

The Bills signed Lamp in April.

He entered the NFL as a second-round choice of the Chargers in 2017, but he missed his rookie season after tearing his ACL during training camp. Lamp stayed...

Some of the New Orleans Saints’ statistical leaders aren’t who you’d expect at this point in the season. Despite putting together a solid 3-2 record (which could have been better with fewer self-inflicted problems in their Week 4 upset loss to the Giants) and finding tremendous success in the red zone and on third downs, some of their top performers have come from unlikely places.

They’ll have a chance to continue building momentum in Week 7’s road game with the reeling Seattle Seahawks. Here are the Saints’ statistical leaders after five games:

The New Orleans Saints filled out their practice squad Tuesday, signing offensive lineman Forrest Lamp and linebacker Lakiem Williams.

The NFL Network reported the Lamp news.

Injuries have marred Lamp's career to this point. The Chargers selected Lamp with the 38th overall pick of the 2017 draft, but the 27-year-old tore his ACL in a preseason game that year, prematurely ending his rookie season.

He appeared in just nine games combined in the 2018 and 2019 seasons, but started 16 games for the Chargers in 2020.

Lamp signed with the Buffalo Bills this offseason, but the team placed...

The New Orleans Saints are signing RB Lamar Miller to their practice squad, per NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The signing was confirmed by Miller’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, on Tuesday morning.

Miller joins a Saints running back position that has Pro Bowler Alvin Kamara, but is thin because of an ankle injury to second-year RB Tony Jones Jr.

Veterans WR/RB Ty Montgomery, Devine Ozigbo, and special teams ace Dwayne Washington served as Kamara's backups against Washington last week.

Tony Jones Jr. had one of the stronger summers the New Orleans Saints had seen recently and played well enough to supplant more-experienced teammates like Latavius Murray and Devonta Freeman, but he’s going to be out of action for a few more weeks while recovering from an injury. The Saints already added a couple of new faces to their running backs room in the meantime, and now they’ve brought in one more: Lamar Miller, who earned a Pro Bowl nod in 2018.

Here’s what I wrote of him after his Oct. 5 workout with the team:

He’s pretty low on the totem pole now, joining Ryquell Armstead (who...
