The Saints need some offensive line help for the next few weeks, and they’re looking at some experienced options.

According to Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Saints are working out blockers today, including NFLPA president Eric Winston.

The 33-year-old Winston was cut by the Bengals, but could step in quickly in the short term since Zach Strief if going to miss a few weeks with an MCL sprain.

Earl Watford (who was in camp with the Jaguars), and Dallas Thomas (Eagles) are also among the workouts. Saints working out linemen, including Eric Winston – ProFootballTalk

Ok, one problem being addressed. Where are the DBs?

Re: Saints working out linemen, including Eric Winston

We're not going to find a good replacement for Strief right now. There aren't anywhere near enough good O-Linemen to start on all 32 teams. We're going to plug in Bryce Harris and it probably won't be a great outcome but what can you do.

I'm starting to think Vaccaro is not the answer at safety, he's not all he's cracked up to be.

Raphael Bush understands zone concepts better.

It's frustrating because our safeties go elsewhere and play better, Malcolm Jenkins is an all pro now, Bush played great with the Lions and even Roman Harper grabbed a couple ints with the panthers in 2015.

Re: Saints working out linemen, including Eric Winston

I think if you can generate ANY sort of QB pressure, your secondary play will look improved instantly and dramatically.

But now it's regular season and where did it all go? Poor game by DA, and honestly poor communication and recognition at many points by some of the players.

The Defense was on the field way to long. The Offense needs to help out.

Until the saints show they can handle rub routes and short crossing routes, they're going to be a lot more 3rd down conversions

Re: Saints working out linemen, including Eric Winston

I'm not against trading our entire draft next year for a good future QB, 2 offensive lineman and 1 great DT

Re: Saints working out linemen, including Eric Winston

Is this going to be our Achilles heel?
