Saints To Work Out DeShawn Shead

Veteran defensive back DeShawn Shead will work out for the Saints on Tuesday, according to’s Adam Schefter (on Twitter). This marks Shead’s first known workout of the offseason.

Shead spent the first six seasons of his career with the Seahawks, making 22 starts across 54 appearances. Unfortunately, a knee injury suffered in the 2016 playoffs altered the trajectory of his career. After appearing in just two games for Seattle in ’17, Shead hooked on with the Lions in March of last year. After missing the final cut, he was re-signed to a lower cost deal and appeared in 12 games before landing on IR once again.

The 30-year-old, who once played opposite of Richard Sherman, could serve as a valued backup behind Eli Apple and Marshon Lattimore.
