Another FB in backfield to love.
The New Orleans Saints have signed former Tampa Bay Buccaneers fullback Erik Lorig to a four-year deal.

He visited the Saints on Saturday.

Lorig, 27 had been with the Buccaneers for four seasons.

Lorig is a 6-foot-4, 250-pounder from Stanford.

He caught 11 passes for 47 yards last season. For his career, Lorig has 30 catches for 193 yards and one touchdown.

The Saints didn't re-sign fullback Jed Collins, who wasn't tendered as a restricted free agent.

At 6'4" and 250lbs Lorig plays FB and TE for blocking purposes. Johnson most likely will stay on the PS for development.

One stat that causes pause, no carries in 4 years with the Bucs. Hmmmnnnnn

Don't read into the stats we just need someone to clear a path for our RB's.

I don't read too much into them, but when the Saints have had 4th and inches I have observed too many times...1st down going in the opposite direction. At least Jed got us a couple last year as well as Drew. Personally, I don't want to see Drew QB sneak.

Re: Saints Agree To Terms With Erik Lorig

Sounds like this guy can play a little tight end too. Like his size and versatility.

Re: Saints Agree To Terms With Erik Lorig

I liked Collins, but, no sense in overpaying a guy who carries the ball once a game or so.

Good Luck Jedidiah Gabriel Collins! (kind of cool to have Jedi in your name)

And welcome Mr. Lorig!

Re: Saints Agree To Terms With Erik Lorig

We need a big, mauling run blocker. Hopefully he fills the need.
