The New Orleans Saints will apparently be adding some offensive line help through free agency.


A center/guard,the Saints are expected to play Easton at center, to replace Max Unger, who retired over the weekend.

A native of Lanoir, North Carolina, Easton played his college football at Harvard, before signing with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent following the 2015 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-3, 307-pound Easton was traded to the San Francisco 49ers in 2015, before being traded to the Minnesota Vikings in 2016.

After starting 12 games with the Vikings in 2017, Easton suffered a season-ending injury when he fractured his ankle in late December, before missing all of 2018 with a herniated disk in his neck.

The 26-year old Easton has seen action in 23 career games at both center and guard, including 17 as a starter.
