Free agent edge rusher Jason Pierre-Paul has reached an agreement with the Saints, as reported by Josina Anderson of CBS Sports.
This move follows a workout session with the Saints earlier in the day, indicating mutual interest and a potential boost for the team’s defensive lineup.
The details remain unclear regarding whether Pierre-Paul will be added to the team’s 53-player roster or be placed on the practice squad, adding an element of suspense to the announcement.
At 34 years old, Pierre-Paul comes with a wealth of experience, spending the 2022 season with the Ravens. During this stint, he showcased his defensive prowess with three sacks, five passes defensed, five tackles for loss, and an interception across 14 games.
A notable figure since his selection as the No. 15 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, Pierre-Paul has accumulated an impressive 94.5 career sacks. His contributions played a crucial role in securing two Super Bowl victories, first with the Giants in 2011 and then with the Buccaneers in 2020.
The timing of this acquisition aligns with the Saints’ bye week in Week 11, setting the stage for Pierre-Paul’s potential debut against the Falcons in Week 12.
