The New Orleans Saints have continued to sign free agents and bring back guys familiar with their system this offseason. On Tuesday, it was announced that Johnathan Abram and Storm Norton are signing with the Black and Gold while Malcolm Roach has re-signed with the team.
Abram was a former first-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft by the then-Oakland Raiders. For all four years of his career, he was with the Silver and Black but also played for the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks in 2022. In his 43 games played, he’s recorded 267 total tackles, three interceptions, 13 passes deflected, and a fumble recovery.
Contract details have yet to be announced for Abram but the news was brought up by Jeremy Fowler on Twitter:
Storm Norton is an offensive lineman who was an undrafted free agent in 2017 and has bounced around different NFL teams like the Detroit Lions, Arizona Cardinals, and Minnesota Vikings. In 2020, he was drafted into the XFL by the Los Angeles Wildcats and has spent the last couple of seasons with the Chargers.
The other move Mickey Loomis and company made was re-signing Malcolm Roach to add depth to the interior of the defensive line. Roach has played in 29 games for New Orleans over the past three seasons. In 2022, he sacked his first quarterback while making a career-high 26 tackles.
Roach’s deal is for one year and was announced on Twitter by Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network:
By the end of these deals, the Saints should have around $10 million left in cap space to sign more free agents and their 2023 draft class.
