Saints Add Major Piece To Beef Up Offensive Line

The Saints had a glaring need at the guard position, and they made a big move in free agency to help beef up their offensive line.

Larry Warford started all 57 games he played for the Detroit Lions, and the 25-year old guard is a promising young player. The 6′-3″, 317 lb Kentucky grad is a major addition up front for the Saints.

Most NFL fans don’t know who Warford is, but he’s a really solid piece for New Orleans. Not only is he a fierce presence on the offensive line, he’s a player the Saints can grow with moving into the future.

It appears the Saints have their starting offensive line all locked up: Terron Armstead at left tackle, Andrus Peat at left guard, Max Unger in the middle, Warford at right guard and Zach Strief at right tackle. Mickey Loomis pulled it off.

Warford battled some injury issues, but if he’s healthy, the Saints will get a nasty guard early in his career. It might not be the move New Orleans fans expected, but it’s the best decision Loomis made this offseason.
