Four teams expressing interest in Nick Easton, including Saints

Veteran offending lineman Nick Easton has drawn interest from 4 groups after his release from the New Orleans Saints 2 weeks earlier, according to NFL press reporter Josina Anderson.

Easton was cut by the Saints in a wage cap relocation as they were well over the cap. Nevertheless, the Saints are among the 4 groups thinking about Easton and might look for a reunion once they get their financials in order.

Easton made nine starts in 12 games played for the Saints last season. He appeared in 52 percent of the team’s offensive snaps, according to Pro-Football-Reference. He’s played in 22 games over the last two seasons for New Orleans after joining the team in 2019 after a two-year stint with the Minnesota Vikings.

Because Easton was released, he is eligible to sign now. However, the report indicates he’s not in a rush to do so. Players with expiring contracts can’t sign with new groups until the start of free agency next month.
