Free agent guard Forrest Lamp has agreed to join the Saints’ practice squad (Twitter link via NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport). The former second-round pick will be in the same group as veteran running back Lamar Miller, who agreed to join the 16-man unit earlier today.
Injuries have dogged Lamp for most of his pro career. He missed all of his 2017 rookie season with an ACL tear, and he missed the second half of the 2019 season due to a broken ankle. Overall, the former higher-end offensive line prospect has been limited to 25 games as a pro. On the plus side, he turned in a full 16-game slate for the Chargers last year and started in every contest.
The 27-year-old was set to play for the Bills this year, but a calf injury ultimately cost him his job. Now healthy, Lamp will try to earn his way onto the Saints’ 53-man roster.
