Saints sign DB Deshawn Shead, another veteran free agent

To help combat all of these losses, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that the Saints signed veteran free agent Deshawn Shead. Shead previously worked out for the Saints back in June, and had been on their radar as they considered their options earlier in the season. He spent the 2018 season with the Detroit Lions after starting 54 games for the Seattle Seahawks over his first six years in the NFL, but didn’t land with a new team in 2019 until the Saints picked him up.

Shead can play all over the secondary as a cornerback in the slot or outside, but he probably (and hopefully) won’t get on the field any time soon. It’s going to take him some time to pick up the playbook. That’s also true for Jenkins and the other veteran defensive back signed recently, strong safety D.J. Swearinger. This isn’t the best position to be in, but it’s in arguable that the Saints are doing their best to add players with experience and who can help right away.

Apple has been playing banged up for weeks with LBs down and playing banged up. Teams have been throwing their best players at him. It really showed this week when he was out the game. Should he end up on IR?
