Dexter McDougle‘s experienced a complicated 2017, being traded, extended and then cut. But the cornerback found another landing spot on Tuesday.
The Saints signed McDougle, Field Yates of ESPN.com tweets. This will mark McDougle’s third team since the preseason.
The Jets traded McDougle to the Eagles in late August, and the Eagles agreed to terms on a one-year extension with the former third-round pick a week later. But McDougle’s run in Philadelphia only lasted two months after that extension, with the team dropping him in November.
McDougle joins Sterling Moore in corners who have signed with the Saints this week. Moore, though, has previous experience in the organization. The 26-year-old defender played in eight games for the Eagles this season, operating mostly as a special teams cog. That’s been his forte throughout his career; McDougle’s logged only six defensive snaps since coming into the league in 2014.
